Best Books I've Read in 2016

How It Feels to Fly1. This book was a fantastic read.  It was funny and heart wrenching—full of uniquely diverse characters, a relevant subject matter and just brilliant narrative—How it Feels to Fly is a MUST READ.
Take The Fall2. Enthralled. Captivated. Hooked. I could not put this book down. Oh my goodness, my mind is still reeling. What? Just what? I really need to start reading more mysteries because oh my gosh, this book was fantastic. 
Reign of Shadows (Reign of Shadows, #1)3. Reign of Shadows is a unique retelling filled with suspense and sexy-times and scary creatures. This book is a MUST READ!
Down with the Shine
4. You guys! This book was just a rollercoaster of crazy. I was frantically flipping pages, biting my nails to nubs, and my heart was practically beating out of my chest at times. I LOVED EVERY SECOND. 
Traveler (Traveler #1)
5. The details of the story are so intricately woven and fast paced yet so easy to follow and just GAH! I loved it.
Caraval6.  Magic. Whimsey. Burnt sugar cider. Julian. Mmmm, yest Julian. THIS BOOK. EPIC. EPICNESS. I need all the related merch. I need the sequel. I need a movie. I need more Scar and Julian! 
The Way I Used to Be7. Insanly good. Powerful. Emotional. Hold the book to your chest and sob, good. A BOOK WHERE YOU PRAY AND WISH AND HOPE FOR CERTAIN THINGS and they don't happy. Omg. Just painfully great. I need a follow up on Eden's life. 
Daughter of the Pirate King
8. Yes. Yes. YES. A million times yes. This is the pirate novel i've been waiting for! SWASHBUCKLING EXCELLENCE. Alosa is so badass and Riden is a sex pot. Sequel NOW.
I couldn't quite come up with 10! What books did you love this year!?


  1. I just added Take the Fall and Reign of Shadows to my 2017 TBR!

  2. I haven't read the others but I did love The Way I Used to Be. It was brutal.
