So since its pretty much the end of 2016 here is the 16 books that I really enjoyed these year. This list is not in order just random titles/series list so enjoy…
Counting Daisies by Nicola Haken
This was such a truthful books to me how young love can come together again. That how addiction can bring ups and downs to everyone’s life. Plus great humor and characters are just a great bonus.
Simon vs. the homo sapiens by Becky Albertalli
This book took me forever to read and so glad that I finally read it. I have a soft spot for letter exchanges and trying to figure out who the other love interest is. Plus again the characters where such a job to read about and see them grow up a little.
Pucked Series by Helena Hunting
This is a straight up guilty read series for me. I love how each book involves two different characters yet still have the pervious ones in there. This is a straight up laugh feast with great friendships and sex.
Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
This book took me by surprise and I got addicted to it really quickly. The way that the author writes is beautiful along with having a strong main character yes please. Also it had a mystery that I couldn’t figure out and just couldn’t wait for it to be shown.
Cormorant Strike series by Robert Galbraith
I didn’t think I would enjoy this series but of course I feel in love with it. This series reminds me why I love mystery books and I really want to get into more of them. I love the relationship between Cormoran and Robin them working together is goals. It gets better with each book and I can’t wait until the next book.
As You Wish by Cary Elwes
I love the movie the Princess Bride and so to read the actors and actresses telling the story of how each came to get the parts. To them working on some of my favorite parts. This was everything and highly recommend listen to all of them tell the story.
Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman
I don’t have to say much about this because plenty people have read and loved it. Me obviously included.. I didn’t think I would enjoy this series because am not much of a science fiction type of girl. However listening to this series will probably change your mind on that. It sure did me.
Wonder by R.J Palacio
This had to be the cutest book I read all year. Witnessing this little boy who has a facial deformity go from home schooling to public school. Auggie adjusting to a new environment, and making friends was the sweetest if not sometime heartbreaking.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Gah this book was so good. It is so underrated and need to be read for the pure enjoyment. The strong female lead the adventure of traveling across the world. To all time sweetheart that is Poe. I just can’t and highly recommend people to read this.
Alcatraz by Brandon Sanderson
This was pure fun. Also my first try with a Brandon Sanderson book and glad I went for this series. I love how Alcatraz would put witty comments in the book to the readers. Plus his family is absolutely crazy in the best way possible. Going to finish in 2017.
All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness
I finished this series in a couple week and this are no small books. I got so caught up in the mystery, traveling, love story, and characters that I couldn’t stop until the end. And that ending. I want more from these characters because I love them to much to say goodbye.
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
Beautiful. The world the strong female character. I love how raw this book can be with Kelsea trying to bring her kingdom back. I loved all the characters and just need to continue on to know what is going to happen.
Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren
Another guilty read that I have the same feeling for as the Puck series. I listened to these on audiobook and highly recommend them because each character gets there own voice and makes it more fun.
Big Rock/ Mister O by Lauren Blakely
Those titles still get to me for how stupid they are. However the stories themselves are so good. It has a male POV along with no real drama that most romances write about. I devoted these two books and can’t wait to read the next one Well Hunged.
Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting
This was a straight up cute and a growing up kind of book. Both main characters have some deep baggage that they each had to deal with. Then come together as a couple was just beautiful in my eyes.
Tokyo Heist by Diana Renn
I loved the setting how much research the author went to making you seem like your in Tokyo. Plus I did enjoy the mystery a lot even if I did predict some of it.
This is actual late which is a boo. Though I did write this before hand and saved it to my draft. So yeah these are some of my favorites of 2016. With 116 books read this year wasn’t the easiest, but I did it.
