Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: Best Books of 2016.
It’s impossible to only chose the ten best books I read this year, so I’ll be sharing my 15 favorite books I read. Because I read so many great series, I’ll also only list one book per series. There were so many great books I read this year (I’ve nearly read 100!), so this is going to be a long list. 😉
This book was so sweet. I loved the friendships and relationship Andie had with her dad. Plus, the romance is adorable.
How do you even describe a book like this? it was enchanting and beautiful and just flat out amazing.
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
I love this series so much, it’s crazy. One of my fall time favorites. Ruin and Rising was an amazing finale.
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
A lot of people didn’t actually like this book, but I loved it. It was a bit slow, but I really enjoyed the plot and characters.
Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton
This book is about three ballerinas training at a ballet school and it’s amazing. You need to read this series.
Strong but feminine female characters, the Victorian era, and death? This book was amazing. I highly recommend it.
Ahdieh’s books are so beautiful and haunting. I love her writing style and the characters are some of my favorites.
I seriously love this book so much. It was one of the few books that actually made me laugh.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven Cycle is AMAZING! It was hard to pick a favorite, but I think I would have to go with Blue Lily, Lily Blue.
Roseblood by A.G. Howard
Roseblood was wonderful and creepy. It’s a Phantom of the Opera retelling and comes out January 1oth. Read it.
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
Boy was I wrong when I thought I was tired of the Shadowhunters because Lady Midnight was SO good!
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling
I’m so glad I finally decided to read HP this year! Order of the Phoenix was my favorite, but they were all amazing!
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
Can we just take a moment to appreciate Rhysand and Feyre’s character development in this amazing book?
I will never get over this book. Ever. The characters, the plot, the setting, the ENDING. *cries*
Salt to the Sea Ruta Sepetys
This book was amazing, heartbreaking, beautiful, and everything in between. One of my absolute favorites ever.
