Fiona’s Best of 2017


Reviewer Fiona shares her picks for 2017…

YA Contemporary

Because of You – Pip Harry

A poignant and important story, this book challenged and changed my perceptions.




The Start of Me and You – Emery Lord

I devoured this delightful story in a day. It left me happy and inspired.




YA Fantasy

The Princess Bride – William Goldman

Miss Six and I read this together and it was wonderful. We both adored this rollicking tale of bumbling heroes.




Flame in the Mist – Renee Ahdieh

A gorgeous tale set in ancient Japan with samurai warriors and a head-strong heroine with a secret. This gripping tale of revenge is beautifully written and easily one of my top picks of 2017 YA releases.



Picture Books

The Sloth Who Came to Stay – Margaret Wild

This tale of fast-paced modern family life and the delightful sloth that changes everything is my favourite picture book of the year.
