Best of 2017

 

This post is part of the Endless Blog Challenge.

For the final week of December I propose skipping the monthly summary/favorites and focusing on a Best of 2017 post.

The Books:

Akata Witch. What Can I say, I’m just a sucker for teenage witches. I blame Buffy.
The Hate U Give. Wonderful YA that should be mandatory reading for majority groups.
Expeditionen: min kärlekshistoria. Sure, when Lisa said I should read a book about a failed arctic expedition, I was like… “…whaat?”. Totally worth it.
Kill the Boy Band. A YA book that deals with the sociology behind boy bands. Yes please.
The Way of Kings. The one male writer that made my top list – the best fantasy-brick I’ve ever read. And the second part was even better (but you shouldn’t start with that, so I recommend this part).

The Movies: (that I saw this year, not necessarily movies FROM this year)

The Lobster. Yes, OK, it’s weird, and gross at times, but it’s stayed with me.
Logan. The darkest Marvel movie so far, where like everyone’s on the verge of dying.

The Shows:

The Orville. Yes I know this is quite the Star Trek rip-off, but it’s like Star Trek and funny. It’s become somewhat of a favorite in the house, and I look forward to season 2.
Star Trek: Discovery. The darkest Star Trek (except maybe DS9?) with (brace yourself) a black woman as main character. Also a favorite in this house.
The Crown. Look, I’m not a big fan of monarchy or anything, but who can resist a good costume drama? Wonderful actors!

The Songs:
