Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! I can’t believe it’s already the last day of 2016, how crazy is that?! In honour of that, it’s time for me to share with you guys my favourite books that I read in 2016 ❤
I read a total of 90 books this year and I managed to narrow it down to my to top 10 favourites. These books aren’t listed in order of least to most favourite or vice versa. Also if I have reviews to any of the books listed, you can click the title of the book to be directed to it 🙂 Let’s get started!
Are you even surprise that this is the first book on this list? 😀 Crooked Kingdom is the sequel and conclusion to the Six Of Crows duology and it was SO PERFECT. I fell even more in love with the characters and the ending was so bittersweet and it was everything I wanted.
2. A Darker Shade Of Magic by V.E Schwab
I absolutely love anything that V.E Schwab writes so it was no surprise that A Darker Shade Of Magic made it to this list! I’ll have a full review up soon but this book had such amazing world building and characters, and I overall really loved the story.
The Weight Of Zero has become one of my favourite books of all time. I won’t talk much about it here because I have a super long review of this book which you can click the title of the book to be directed to it but yes, I would highly highly highly recommend all of you to pick up a copy of this book 🙂
Next up, Empire Of Storms by Sarah J Maas! This is the fifth instalment to the Throne Of Glass series and though I had a couple of issues with it, it was still a great instalment nonetheless and that ending… KILLED ME 😦 So excited for the sixth instalment!
This is also another book that has become one of my favourites of all time! 🙂 I was lucky to receive an ARC of this to review and it was honestly one of the cutest yet thought provoking book I’ve ever read. I love the diversity present in this novel and the author definitely handled topics such as deportation, racism and discrimination very well. If you’re looking for a good #OwnVoices book, check this one out!
I finally decided to pick up Illuminae this year and IT WAS SO GOOD. Once again, I have a full review up so I won’t talk much about it here but it was so intense and epic! I don’t normally read science fiction novels but I’m so glad I decided to read this one 🙂 I will definitely be picking Gemina up next year and I hope I’ll like it as much!
Ruined definitely took me by surprised because it was actually a really amazing fantasy novel! 🙂 It’s such an underrated book and more people should read it. The author took the storyline to a whole new level and it grabbed my interest till the end. Would highly recommend!
I read SJTR during the Halloween season and it was such a thrilling YA mystery! It was super fascinating and though I predicted the plot twist, it was still really enjoyable going onboard this mystery and I would highly recommend everyone to check this book out if you’re looking for a good YA mystery novel.
9. Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes
Crystal Storm is the fifth instalment to the Falling Kingdoms series and it was so amazing and epic! ❤ Morgan Rhodes never fails to impress me with each instalment and the ending for this was SO PAINFUL. I literally need the sixth instalment in my hands now!!!
Lastly, we have The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan! I’m honestly so happy that Rick Riordan is expanding the Percy Jackson universe and this was such a great first instalment in the 5 book series 🙂 I just loved being back in this world and seeing new and old characters!
That wraps up my favourite books of 2016 and I hope you all enjoyed it! 2016 was a pretty great year and I can’t wait to see what 2017 holds 🙂 I hope you all have a wonderful 2017 and I’ll see you in my next post, bye!
