6. Blindsight

By Peter Watts (384 pp)

Look at this, 6 pitiful books for 2017 but at least I read this in one week. This book is spectacular and dense and not something I could read while in the middle of a writing project. I don't think I can adequately explain in a sentence because if I say: a space crew goes to investigate a comet and ends up in contact with aliens, it sounds like a familiar story. It's way more complex than that and deals with consciousness and biology and a lot more. Very highly recommend.

5. Three Dark Crowns

By Kendare Blake (407 pp ebook)

A couple of years ago I read Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares by this author so when this book showed up in my Bookbub (super addictive way to buy ebooks, join at your own risk) I had to grab it. It's dark and the whole time I read it, I couldn't guess where it was going. Also, it's a cliffhanger and book 2 comes out in September! I recommend.
