Favorite Books of 2016
2016 was a bit of a slow year for me, reading-wise. I was only able to get to 52 books, To put things into perspective, I can usually read 100 within a year!
However, there were some fantastic books that I was able to get to!
I have listed the most memorable 5 in no particular order!
1. My Lady Jane - Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows
I did chat about this before, but this is probably one of the most outstanding books of 2016 for me. It's fun, different and also romantic. It manages to shed a lot of the YA tropes and has some amazing characters!
2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
One of the more solid fantasies that the YA genre has to offer. It's got loads of action and a strong heroine!
3. Dumplin' by Junie Murphy
This is one of those books that read like a movie. It's fun, quirky and has a great message about owning who you are!
4. The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman
This one was an awesome surprise for me. I got a copy to review and ended up loving it! It's a regency romance with demons! Come on, how cool does that sound?
5. Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
This fantasy has gotten a lot of hype over the years and I can see why people love it so much. The characters are complicated and compelling and the story gripping. I really hope they make a Finnikin movie. Please?
