So here’s my Autumn TBR!Continue reading
In 2016, I set out with a goal of reading 100 books. Ten of those books would be re-reads for me, another 12 to be contemporary, and 5 to be non-fiction. My Top 10 bOOKS OF 2016 ARE A NICE MIX OF ALL OF THOSE GOALS.
Not long into the year, I knew that reading 2 books a week would be difficult, if not impossible and the goal of 100 books was cut in half. That was a much more manageable goal. I reached and surpassed 50 books easily.
- 12 of them were contemporary novels (goal achieved!)
- 8 of them were re-reads (goal not quite achieved, but close!)
- 2 were non-fiction (wah wahhhh– fail)
But so many of them were incredible. Here are my top 10 books of 2016 (in no particular order)!
I missed out on this one yesterday, so it can’t hurt to post it a day late, right?
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I read in 2014! I’ve read 34 books so far this year— so I have a decent list to pick from. So in no particular order, just books I really loved this year are…
10. Cress by Marissa Meyer
The whole Lunar Chronicles was a blast for me to read this year, actually. But since I am only going to put one book from each series (if it is infact from a series) I’d have to choose Cress. It was such an exciting read and I love Marissa Meyer’s unique take on these classic and beloved fairy tales.
9. The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson
8. Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
I loved this whole trilogy, but Dreams of Gods and Monsters wowed me. I loved how it weaved in so many different stories and how they all came together for one exciting finale that kept me on the edge of my seat.
Once again, another series I love. I still haven’t read Blood of Olympus, so this is the book from the Heroes of Olympus series that made my best of list for 2014!
Maggie Steifvater is one of my favorite authors whose books I read in 2014. The Scorpio Races was one of those books that I couldn’t put down. With amazing mythological concepts and strong characters, this is one book that I would recommend that everyone read.
5. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I still haven’t read Blue Lily, Lily Blue (yes I am very behind) but this series was so much fun and again, I loved the mythology that Steifvater used to create a unique and beautiful world.
I loved the first book in this trilogy and hope to pick up the next two books to read in the cold winter months!
3. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
I’ve loved everything that I’ve read by Rainbow Rowell. Attachments was such a funny and accurate description of office life with the added aspect of someone snooping through your emails and conversations. I loved pretty much everything about this book!
2. Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
While this isn’t a new book, I was introduced to this series and this genre this year and had so much fun with it. Can’t wait to read the second two later this winter. It seems like the perfect trilogy to curl up with when it’s cold outside.
1.Pivot Point by Kasie West
Of course the screen cap for the video has me making the most ridiculous face haha. Sorry for the technical difficulties. This will hopefully be the last video that I have to make on my laptop. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can use the Mac from now on.
