Welcome back to the twelfth month of Calendar Girls (aka my Birthday month! Woo!) It’s a monthly blog event co-hosted by Flavia and myself, and designed to ignite bookish discussions among readers. Calendar Girls was inspired by the 1961 Neil Sedaka song, Calendar Girl, (because I’m an oldies fanatic. 😛) For more information, click here!
Favorite Book Published in 2017
Oh my gosh, you guys! I actually read a couple of books that were published in 2017! (I’m super amazed because I have so many unread books from a decade ago that I feel like I’m always behind on new releases.) What’s more exciting is that the books I read that were published in 2017 were… ACTUALLY GOOD! I know, right?! That’s pretty amazing coming from me and since it’s the end of the year, I’ve decided to make a list of the books I read that were published in 2017 AND I rated 4+ biohazards. Just to give you guys a taste of the contenders! 😀
Even with all of these awesome books, one book still comes out on top without a hint of a doubt! So, without further ado…. *drum roll*

For all the non-scifi fans out there, this book might not be for you. For all the readers out there who prefer fluffy, love stories this book might not be for you. Why do I say that? Because this book is not just a scifi that takes us into space, but there is a brutal competition that unleashes the darkest parts of humanity. I’m not talking Hunger Games, but more along the lines of the inner psyche.
Of course, I also loved this book because it’s a space opera and is absolutely amazing. It has tons of advanced tech and fun challenges for the participants. There’s a little bit of mystery going on in the background and you know that something is up, but it’s absolutely amazing. It’s well-written. It’s got lots of excitement. It’s not all just action, but plenty of character drama and development. I highly recommend this if you’re looking for a fun read! 😀
Have you read Nyxia yet?
If you haven’t, you should!
