Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
First TTT of the new year! Wohoooo!
Whilst you’re here make sure to check out my Bookopoly Reading Challenge which went live on 1st January and will be running through 2018.
Lara Avery – The Memory Book
“Not much is likely. Anything is possible.”
This book was in no way perfect, there were some bits that did drag a little, but then there were some parts that just stood out as something really special. It was a unique book in the form of Sammy, the main character, dealing with rare disease that will slowly rob her of her memory and was handled beautifully by Avery.

Claudia Connor – The McKinney Brothers series
“He knew without a doubt, he was holding his heart and soul in his arms. And he never wanted to let her go.”
I literally inhaled this entire series within a few days whilst travelling round Australia. It was easy going, fun, flirty with just the right amount of emotion to pull me in. Big love to Connor for providing me with these super sexy brothers 2 weeks after I broke up with my boyfriend!

Staci Hart – A Thousand Letters
“Braveness isn’t always loud. Sometimes it’s silent. There’s braveness in sacrifice and kindness. It’s in doing a thing that needs to be done, even though it’s hard, and even though it hurts.”
She wrote a second chance romance and it was AWESOME. Enough said.

Karen M. McManus – One of Us is Lying
So I hate any kind of mystery type storyline, especially murder mysteries. Then I read this book, and I wouldn’t say that I’m now going to go out and buy a whole load of murder mystery books, but I’m definitely going to buy a whole lot more Karen M. McManus books. She is amazing!

Elly Blake – The Frostblood Saga
“You don’t know the effect your words have on me, Lady Firebrand. It took years to build up this ice. You will melt it and then I will be broken.”
Hands down my favourite new to me author of 2017. Elly and her Frostblood series is AMAZING and I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve read the first two books this year. Her world building skills are just incredible and I’m so in awe of her. Definitely an author I will be reading a lot more of in the future!

Jay McClean – Kick Push Series, More Than series, The Preston Brothers series
“I think, ultimately, that’s what true love is, you know? To want to be someone’s hero when they’re faced with villains. To want to be to be the one that saves them. To be their Wonderwall.”
It was only when putting this list together did I realise how many books I had read of Jay McClean’s this year. Purely for this reason does she deserve a place on this list!

Heidi McLaughlin – Forever My Girl series
“I’m standing in front of you, Josie. You just have to turn around.”
It was actually seeing the trailer for the ‘Forever My Girl’ movie that drew me to McLaughlin and I’m so glad it did because her ability to write a second chance romance that’s both full of the feels and also the super sexy times makes her one of my new faves from this year.

Siobhan Davis – Inseparable
“We thought we were invincible, inseparable, that nothing or no one could come between us…But we were wrong.”
I literally read my first Siobhan Davies book on the last day of 2017 and it was such a good bookish end to the year. Will definitely be checking out more of her in the future!
Check back on the 8th Jan for my review. In the meantime find Inseparable on Goodreads
