Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, an original feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is ten best books we have read in 2017.
But first, I have something to ask you. A few months ago, I started a new series, called Before They Were Blockbusters, where I review books that became the basis for popular movies. The first book in this series was The Prestige, by Christopher Priest. For my next episode, I've narrowed down the list to two books:
Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell which was the basis for John Carpenter's The Thing, and
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick which was the basis for the movie Blade Runner.
So, go to my Facebook page by clicking on this link and vote for the book you want me to review next. The poll will open for six more days.
Now that we have that out of the way, here are the ten best books I have read in 2017 (with links to reviews).
1. Hyperion by Dan Simmons
2. The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons
3. The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov
4. The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher
