On the Children's Shelf: My Favorite Books of 2017, So Far

This week here at Books, Ink we are all looking back at our favorite books we have read so far in 2017. I have read many books so far this year that I thoroughly enjoyed and here are some of my favorite children and young adult books. (I would also like to add that this list is in no particular order so first is not my most favorite, I enjoyed them all!)
"Running Out of Time" by Margaret Peterson Haddix
"Star in the Storm" by Joan Hiatt Harlow
"Counting By 7s" by Holly Goldberg Sloan
"Lodestar" (Keeper of the Lost Cities #5) by Shannon Messenger
"Pax" by Sarah Pennypacker
"The Day the Crayons Quit" by Drew Daywalt
"The Wishing Spell" (The Land of Stories #1) by Chris Colfer
