Your Favorite Books of 2016 so far

Happy Monday, good people of the blogosphere! Today, I'm gonna talk about my favorite reads of 2016 so far, and I wanna hear all about yours! These are in NO particular order. Ready? Let's get going!

My first isn't a book or series I've reviewed yet, but I've read all but the last one (The Crown). The Selection Series by Kiera Cass. I enjoyed this series more than I thought I would. You all know how much I love a spunky female protagonist, and America takes the cake in this series. She's vivacious, true to self, and endearing. Love it. Review to come (possibly on the air).

Second, I loved the Frenzy series by Casey L. Bond. Seriously. They're such quick reads, I think I blazed through the first three books in two days. Since the fourth just hit the shelves, I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I totally plan to very soon! Porcha Grant is witty, just tough enough, and good at keeping me on my toes as I read. Review of the whole series to come VERY soon.

I can't leave the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer off this list. I just finished Fairest, and Winter is sitting on my shelf, beckoning to me. I'm totally admitting to not liking Fairest. You all know how I feel about not telling the villain's backstory, and that's what Fairest does. I now feel kinda bad for Levana, and I don't like it. Hating on her was something I enjoyed, and it made me pull hard for Cinder to win. On the fence. Once I finish Winter, I'll review both of the last books at once. Cross your fingers for me!

I loved The Girl in 6E by A. R. Torre. Totally planning to continue that series, too! You've all read my review for that book (I hope). If not, find it here.

Totally can't forget The Adventures of Sir Edric! You'll laugh. I loved this book too much. See my review here.

Because of my fascination with the macabre this year, I greatly enjoyed Dark Bishop by Casey L. Bond and Rachel Brownell, too. Man, did that book make my jaw drop! Don't miss it! I wrote a review already and posted it here.

To be honest, this isn't all of them, but that would make for a VERY long post! haha!

What have your 2016 top reads been? Share in the comments!

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!

  1. Not a book written in 2016, but one I just finished reading: Station 11, by Emily St. John Mandel. It sings (that is my highest praise for a book). It tells a harrowing story in such an understated way. How all the pieces come together is so masterful.

  2. I would totally have to agree with you on the Frenzy Series. I have read book 4 and woohoo you're going to love it. I also loved Chasing Eternity, the conclusion to the Tala Prophecy Series. It was amazing!

  3. Emancipation, of course, and Pieces by Patrick Heffernan are two. 🙂

  4. There have been so many good ones this year! Discovery by Emma Jaye surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. Myrian Heir by Rebecca P. McCray was amazing! I am chomping at the bit for the sequel. Winter Smith: London's Burning was an impressive debut novel by J.S. Strange, and The Song and the Pendant made me fall in love with Space Operas. Realms Unreeled by Audrey Auden was a surreal sci-fi, Strings by David Estes, and of course, I just finished I, Zombie by Jo Michaels and it was a real fascinating read. Can't wait to get my boys' reaction. We are Zombie lovers here (More in the want a zombie apocalypse, than the love zombies type.) so this should be an interesting experience for them!

Play nice and have fun. If you're a jerk, I won't publish your comment. My blog. My rules. Thanks for taking the time to chat at me!
