Angela’s Best of 2017

Posted December 22, 2017 by Angela in Best Of, Under the Covers / 46 Comments

It’s coming to the end of year and it’s a brilliant time to reflect on our favourite reads of 2017. Unfortunately there isn’t enough room to list all the books we have liked and would recommend. So, we are each doing a post with the cream of the crop, the books that have stayed on our mind all year and that we’re dying to share with you.

Annnnnd with no further ado *cues drum roll* here are my favourite books of 2017…

Picking the Best of 2017 was really a hard task given my reading time has been cut down to half this year.  Unfortunately, I’ve taken on more responsibilities that prevent me to sit and enjoy my books.  But after going through my read books list this year, it wasn’t hard to figure out which is my absolute best read book.  That’s no other than Darynda Jones’ The Trouble with Twelfth Grave.  This book is the twelfth book of the series and it just pulled all kinds of emotions out me.  I love where Darynda has brought this series and couldn’t recommend this Urban Fantasy series enough.

My Review

Angela’s Best of 2017
The Trouble with Twelfth Grave
by Darynda Jones

BOOK INFO


Released: October 31st 2017
Series: Charley Davidson #12
Published by St. Martin's Press
Pages: 352
 

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the twelfth installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series.

Ever since Reyes escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley accidently trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that’s not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings—some corporeal, some not so much—as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she’s not uncovering a murder. This time she’s covering one up.

Add to that her new occupation of keeping a startup PI venture—the indomitable mystery-solving team of Amber Kowalski and Quentin Rutherford—out of trouble and dealing with the Vatican’s inquiries into her beloved daughter, and Charley is on the brink of throwing in the towel and becoming a professional shopper. Or possibly a live mannequin. But when someone starts attacking humans who are sensitive to the supernatural world, Charley knows it’s time to let loose her razor sharp claws. Then again, her number one suspect is the dark entity she’s loved for centuries. So the question becomes, can she tame the unruly beast before it destroys everything she’s worked so hard to protect?

This year, I explored more outside my comfort zone in my reading choices. By that I mean, I took recommendations that are not just in the romance genre.  I mostly dabbed on fantasy and YA which some had romance but very light.  Two of the books, I really enjoyed is Kerri Maniscalco’s Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula.  It’s all mystery and suspense that I could not put these books down.  I read it one after the next wanting more.  Oddly enough, historical fiction is not my first choice of genre yet, rated these books four and five stars.  One of my best reads for the year.

Francesca’s Review

Sherrilyn Kenyon took this one. Deadmen Walking is technically a spin of Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series but it’s a different time and place.  As a start of the Nevermore series, it is one of the Best New Series of my year.  I’m actually surprised that I love the storyline since I’m not too fond of pirates.  I suppose Kenyon did an amazing job with the plot that I didn’t mind the pirate story.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved watching Pirates of the Caribbean movies which by the way has the same vibe as this book,  but for some odd reason, I just can’t handle reading about them.  I guess not in this case, but hey….time’s a changing, mates.
I also just finished Kenyon’s Insurrection, book one of the Nevermore series.  This is such a short book that it felt more like a prequel to the series.  I loved it. I mean, I don’t like that it was short, but I loved the book just the same. I really don’t know what Kenyon’s plans are for this series, but it has a feel of a Young Adult Fantasy to it. It’s Post-Apocalyptic world with aliens and surviving humans.  I love the world building and I love all the characters despite we only got a few chapters.  It’s definitely one to watch for.

Deadmen Walking
by Sherrilyn Kenyon

BOOK INFO


Released: May 9th 2017
Series: Deadman's Cross Trilogy #1
Published by Tor
 

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon debuts a sweeping new epic saga sure to appeal to her millions of fans!

Deadmen tell their tales . . .

To catch evil, it takes evil. Enter Devyl Bane– an ancient dark warlord returned to the human realm as one of the most notorious pirates in the New World. A man of many secrets, Bane makes a pact with Thorn– an immortal charged with securing the worst creations the ancient gods ever released into our world. Those powers have been imprisoned for eons behind enchanted gates . . . gates that are beginning to buckle. At Thorn’s behest, Bane takes command of a crew of Deadmen and, together, they are humanity’s last hope to restore the gates and return the damned to their hell realms.

But things are never so simple. And one of Bane’s biggest problems is the ship they sail upon. For the Sea Witch isn’t just a vessel, she’s also a woman born of an ancient people he wronged and who in turn wronged him during a centuries long war between their two races― a woman who is also sister to their primary target. Now Marcelina, the Sea Witch, must choose. Either she remains loyal to her evil sister and almost extinct race against Bane and his cause, and watches humanity fall, or she puts faith in an enemy who has already betrayed her. Her people over the totality of humanity― let’s hope Bane can sway her favor.

Typically, for favorite heroines, I tend to go with heroines from a fantasy world versus realistic world.  How can I not. Heroines from a fantasy world are usually strong-willed, kick ass, and sometimes with powers.  Not to mention they probably end up with a worthy hero.  This year’s favorite heroine is Lada from Now I Rise.  This girl takes after her father who is ruthless, kickass and knows exactly what she wants.  Her dreams come first and foremost and nothing will stand in her way.  I love reading her story, it’s also one of the best YA/fantasy that I’ve read this year.

Now I Rise
by Kiersten White

BOOK INFO


Released: June 27th 2017
Series: And I Darken #2
Published by Delacorte Press
Pages: 496
 

Lada Dracul has no allies. No throne. All she has is what she’s always had: herself. After failing to secure the Wallachian throne, Lada is out to punish anyone who dares to cross her blood-strewn path. Filled with a white-hot rage, she storms the countryside with her men, accompanied by her childhood friend Bogdan, terrorizing the land. But brute force isn’t getting Lada what she wants. And thinking of Mehmed brings little comfort to her thorny heart. There’s no time to wonder whether he still thinks about her, even loves her. She left him before he could leave her.

What Lada needs is her younger brother Radu’s subtlety and skill. But Mehmed has sent him to Constantinople—and it’s no diplomatic mission. Mehmed wants control of the city, and Radu has earned an unwanted place as a double-crossing spy behind enemy lines. Radu longs for his sister’s fierce confidence—but for the first time in his life, he rejects her unexpected plea for help. Torn between loyalties to faith, to the Ottomans, and to Mehmed, he knows he owes Lada nothing. If she dies, he could never forgive himself—but if he fails in Constantinople, will Mehmed ever forgive him?

As nations fall around them, the Dracul siblings must decide: what will they sacrifice to fulfill their destinies? Empires will topple, thrones will be won . . . and souls will be lost.

This one was a little hard for me to choose just one.  It was a battle between Reyes from Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series and Vlad Tepesh of Jeaniene Frost’s Night Prince series.  These men are powerful in their own right, sexy, and very alpha.  What I love most is how they worship the love of their lives unconditionally.  They would go to hell and back just to protect them.  This two authors did such a magnificent jobs making them unforgettable.

Into the Fire
by Jeaniene Frost

BOOK INFO


Released: February 28th 2017
Series: Night Prince #4
Published by Avon Books
 

In the wrong hands, love can be a deadly weapon.

For nearly six hundred years, Vlad Tepesh cared for nothing, so he had nothing to lose. His brutal reputation ensured that all but the most foolhardy stayed away. Now falling in love with Leila has put him at the mercy of his passions. And one adversary has found a devastating way to use Vlad’s new bride against him.

A powerful spell links Leila to the necromancer Mircea. If he suffers or dies, so does she. Magic is forbidden to vampires, so Vlad and Leila enlist an unlikely guide as they search for a way to break the spell. But an ancient enemy lies in wait, capable of turning Vlad and Leila’s closest friends against them…and finally tearing the lovers apart forever.

It was a choice between three books but I seem to keep going back to Cora Carmack’s Roar, the first instalment of the Stormheart series.  There’s just something poetic about the girl on the cover; her flowing dress and her weapons at the ready.  Makes me wonder what’s going through her mind.  There’s also a different texture on the dress and shines when in the right angle of the light.  This cover would make me buy this from the store just by its cover.  It’s so very pretty.

Series: Stealing Storms #1
Published by Tor Teen
Pages: 352
 

In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.

Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world’s deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora’s been groomed to be the perfect queen. She’s intelligent and brave and honorable. But she’s yet to show any trace of the magic she’ll need to protect her people.

To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora’s mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He’ll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace one night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks—storm magic. And the people selling it? They’re not Stormlings. They’re storm hunters.

Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born without magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there’s a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage.

She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if she’s brave enough.

Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master.

J.R. Ward has been a favorite of mine since I started my adventure in reading for romance novels.  And I think I can speak for the rest of the girls here at UTC, along with many of our readers.  Unfortunately, the 15th book was a big let down for me; even bigger than Phury’s book which I sorta didn’t like (a whole other issue).  One of the things I love about Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood is the heroes for their alpha traits, fierce, build, undying love and respect for their mates but the characters did not have the same personas as they usually do in The Chosen.  It almost seems like it was a whole other author who wrote this book. Nothing was consistent.  I can go on with my opinions and complaints about this book but it’s best explained here in our group review.  With all that said, I was disappointed.  I have every confident Ward will get her mojo back and she will undoubtedly make me fall in love with her books again.

The Chosen
by J.R. Ward

BOOK INFO


Released: April 4h 2017
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood #15
Published by Penguin
 

A scorching forbidden love threatens to tear a rift through the Black Dagger Brotherhood in J. R. Ward’s newest novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Xcor, leader of the Band of Bastards, convicted of treason against the Blind King, is facing a brutal interrogation and torturous death at the hands of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Yet after a life marked by cruelty and evil deeds, he accepts his soldier’s fate, his sole regret the loss of a sacred female who was never his: the Chosen Layla.

Layla alone knows the truth that will save Xcor’s life. But revealing his sacrifice and his hidden heritage will expose them both and destroy everything Layla holds dear—even her role of mother to her precious young. Torn between love and loyalty, she must summon the courage to stand up against the only family she has for the only man she will ever love. Yet even if Xcor is somehow granted a reprieve, he and Layla would have to confront a graver challenge: bridging the chasm that divides their worlds without paving the way for a future of even greater war, desolation, and death.

As a dangerous old enemy returns to Caldwell, and the identity of a new deity is revealed, nothing is certain or safe in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, not even true love . . . or destinies that have long seemed set in stone.

This one surprised me a little. I was looking through the books I’ve read, and Marina’s Adair’s It Started with a Kiss just keeps popping into my mind.  The couple in this book, are not magical beings nor are they billionaires.  They are not kick ass in a literal sense of fighting or have any magical powers.  They are ordinary people from a realistic world living realistic lives.  In fact, their lives have never been perfect but what makes them the perfect couple is that these two learned to accept and live life to the fullest.  They love with all their heart despite the uncertainties of the future.  They know life is short especially if illness, sickness,but despite their trials and tribulations they love and live.

It Started With A Kiss
by Marina Adair

BOOK INFO


Released: January 31st 2017
Series: Sequoia Lake #1
Published by Montlake Romance
 

With a kidney transplant behind her, Avery Adams is determined to channel her inner adventurer and explore everything life has to offer. Only problem is, the closest she’s ever come to a real-life adventure was sixth-grade science camp. So to seize the summer in her rustic Sierra Nevada town, she takes a job as a guide at the local adventure lodge. But Avery doesn’t realize her biggest challenge will register at six-plus feet of rugged good looks and alpha-male charm.

As a member of the Sequoia Elite Mountain Rescue team, Tyson Donovan has made a life out of cheating death and rescuing weekend warriors from the treacherous terrain. “The world is my home” is more than just a motto; it’s what scares off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. When his dad’s health lands the family’s adventure lodge in serious danger of going up in flames, he moves home—and quickly remembers why he left. Until he meets Avery, the irresistible new guide who makes him want to stay.

Tyson gives the inexperienced Avery a lesson in romance that her books could never teach her. And with her undeniable spirit for life, Avery shows Tyson the healing power of love. But with one misstep, everything comes crashing down, and they’ll both have to take the biggest leap of all—into the kind of adventure that lasts a lifetime.

So, this will be a little hard to explain because of possible spoilers.  But I will try to explain the best I can.  I am picking Darynda Jones’ Trouble with Twelfth Grave. Let me start by saying the hero of this series, Reyes Farrough’s character is to die for. This guy exude power in all levels.  He is sexy to the bone, and he loves with all his heart and did I mention dude is sexy down to his bone.  With that said, Reyes truly comes out of his shell in so many ways in this book and one of those ways is making love with Charley for the very first time in “this” fashion.  Without giving any spoilers, Reyes and Charley have been together before but this is the first time that they are together with everything he is…heart and soul.

I’ve looked through all the books I’ve read this year and there’s really no other choice but to pick Darynda Jones. She along with just a hand of authors that I’ve read had stayed consistent with their writing. Darynda has managed to sweep me off my feet with every book she has written. I love her writing, along with the humor, love and adventure she bring to her Charley Davidson series. The series is now at twelveth installment, and she keeps the spark in every book. Darynda is simply amazing.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
