Well, another year down. My blogging and reading slowed down considerably here towards the end. I even lowered my Goodreads reading goal from 120 to 90 just so I’d “complete” it. *shrugs* A cheater, I am.
There are plenty of books from 2016 that get some major lovin’ from me though. I like to look back and be reminded of the books I read throughout the year and how they made me feel.
I’ll link the images to my reviews. And I’m only including books that were published in 2016.
Anyway, here are my picks …
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne – This isn’t just a 2016 favorite, no. This baby is a top favorite ever! The humor was perfect.
Ask Me How I Got Here – This is so beautifully written. I connected with Addie so much.
He Will Be My Ruin – My favorite Tucker book to date.
Marked in Flesh – The series gets better with every book!
All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood – Controversial, thought provoking, and beautifully written.
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch – An entertaining & wild ride!
Morning Star – Wowza! What a fantastic finale! I can’t wait for the spinoff.
The Fireman – What an amazing book hangover this gave me.
The City of Mirrors – Absolutely brilliant! Seriously worth the 3.5 year wait.
With Malice – I was pleasantly surprised at how good this was.
And I Darken – Hell yeah! This was so freaking good!
The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis – I loved this book when I read it, but my appreciation for it has grown even more since.
Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews – *sigh* I’m going to miss the hell outta this series when it’s over.
Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes – I couldn’t leave out Joe! If you haven’t read You yet, do it!
Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas – I love her books so freaking much!
Those are the biggies of the year for me, but there are a few more that definitely deserve some recognition.
