All The Books I Read In 2017 - Worst to Best!


2017 is finally over and done, and I'm kind of glad about it. I can't wait to do even more amazing things this year! But I also read a lot of really great books over the course of 2017. So today I'm going to go through them; from the worst all the way to the best.

I'll include the ratings of each book so you have an idea of what I thought of them. Please understand that if you don't agree it's okay, because this is my own opinion.

Also since I've never really talked about the rating system I use to rate books before; I thought I'd include it here so you have a more clear understanding of how it works. Here it is:

Characters = out of 1.5 stars

World building/ setting/ description = out of 1.5 stars

Plot = out of 1.5 stars

Writing = out of 0.5 stars

I then add the stars together and end up with my rating:

1 Stars = Hated it! Definitely not my kind of thing. It may be very problematic, or just personal preference.

2 Stars = Meh, probably won't continue if it's a series, unless there are great things being said about future books.

3 Stars = Pretty average, but I liked it and if it's a part of a series, I will continue.

4 Stars = Loved it, there might've been a couple of things that I didn't like, or areas I thought the book was lacking. But I really enjoyed it.

5 Stars = Amazing! It was a wonderful experience reading this book. Close to perfect, there may be some slight problems.

Now onto the books:

Books that I re-read this year aren't going to be on the list for obvious reasons. For example I read the first book in the Throne of Glass series at the end of 2016 but re-read it in 2017; that's why the book isn't on this list. As of now this is the current order from worst to best:
