10 Books You Must Read By The End Of 2017!

They may not all be new releases, but they're important nonetheless.

1. Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too: A Book by Jomny Sun

You guys. This book made me want to appreciate life and nature and be a better person the minute I finished it.

2. Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young

One of the craziest psychological thrillers I've ever read, and I loved it from the minute I picked it up and I push it on everybody I know now! And trust me: the ending is not what you'd expect.

3. Geekerella by Ashley Poston

If you've ever been a part of any sort of fandom (especially one that participates in conventions!), this book is for you.

4. Looking for Alaska by John Green

My absolute favorite book of all time. I will not rest until everybody I know has given this book a try. You will love it. And if you don't -- at least you'll learn some important things about love and loss.

5. Dumplin' by Julie Murphy

The ultimate book for loving your body and the skin you're in, no matter what! A totally amazing body-positive book that is a great boost to your confidence.

6. The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

I'm not a huge high fantasy fan, but I loved this book (and The Rose & The Dagger!) from the first page until the very last. This is another book that I hope to push on everybody.

7. I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

An important book about love and sticking through tough circumstances, I'm so glad that I won this book in a giveaway a few years ago! Even though it's been awhile since I read it, it has stuck with me and I've gone on to recommend it to many, many readers over the past couple of years.

8. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

This book takes all you thought you knew about Dorothy and The Wizard of Oz and completely flips it into a totally new, creative story. I mean, come on -- a world where Dorothy returns to Oz and becomes an evil dictator? Total genius, Danielle Paige. Sheer genius.

9. The Sweet Trilogy by Wendy Higgins

This is quite an old series, but Amber introduced me to it awhile ago and I've been hooked on it ever since. Kai and Anna's story is so romantic and I totally ship it, even when there were a lot of scary situations going on. And being the children of the Seven Deadly Sins? Even more interesting.

10. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

This is another book for anybody who's part of a fandom. (And you get bonus points if you're also a writer!) I related to Cath a lot, especially with her strong ties to her fandom, and I thought that the book was just overall sappy and passionate and adorable.
