How are we already halfway through with 2016 already? This has been a crazy awesome year and I can’t wait for the second half!
Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2016
I honestly cannot even tell you which book that I’ve read in 2016 has been my favorite so far. There have been so many 5-star reads and each of them are so much different than the other!
My top 5 would be:
A Court of Mist and Fury
The Wrath & The Dawn
Six of Crows
Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2016
A Court of Mist and Fury is the best sequel I’ve read this year. This is especially true since A Court of Thorns and Roses wasn’t nearly as fantastic without ACOMAF!
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet but Want To
And I Darken
Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of the Year
Empire of Storms
The Glittering Court
Both of these books were major disappointments for me! I had seen both of these books around everywhere but wasn’t expecting the lack of excitement when reading them!
A Study in Charlotte works for this category, I’m an easy-to-deceive reader so I never see anything coming!
Favorite New Author
One of my favorite new-to-me authors is Renee Ahdieh! Man, that woman write a story! It takes an amazing author to mesmerize a reader with a story within a story! I’m still amazed at the story-telling skills of her books!
Favorite New Crush
Y’all know Rhys is my biggest crush right now! My favorite fan art of him (and all of Maas’ characters) is by this awesome chick Charlie Bowater check out her site here!
Favorite New Characters
The kids over at Six of Crows were all around the best new group of characters that I have met so far this year. Each and every one of them was just so well done.
Books That Made You Cry
Me Before You
The Rose & The Dagger
A Book That Made You Happy
Most Beautiful Books You’ve Bought So Far This Year
Seriously any and all books are beautiful! I really try to not discriminate based on looks! All the hundreds of books that I’ve bought in 2016 have been beautiful to me!
