Day 31: Favorite Reads of 2016!:
Happy New Year’s Eve! Seeing as it is officially the last day of 2o16 I figured I’d combine my favorite books of the year post with the last day of the December book challenge! I read so many amazing books this year, so let’s get started!
The Lunar Chronicles Series by Marissa Meyer:
I cannot believe it took me until this year to finally read this series! The characters are some of the best I’ve ever read, it was so easy to get into the story, and the writing was amazing! As of this year, this is definitely one of my all time favorite series!
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff:
Just the formatting of this book makes it super unique, but the story had to be one of the most intense and intriguing I have ever read!
Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley:
This book has to have some of the most unique fantasy elements I’ve ever seen, and as an English major it was really cool to see a fictionalized version of the Brontes!
The Six of Crows series by Leigh Bardugo:
This series isn’t just one of my favorites of the year, but of all time. Literally everything about these two books is incredible (ESPECIALLY all six of the main characters). If you haven’t read this series yet, I highly recommend you do so!
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare:
I’m always trash for Shadowhunters, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the Dark Artifices series (especially since I loved the characters!)
Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell:
This may have only been a short novella, but it was definitely one of the most fun and entertainingly written books I read this year!
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows:
This has to be one of the most fun books I read this year, and the writing style was absolutely hilarious!
The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater:
Help, I have completely fallen in love with the characters, world, and writing style of this series!
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab:
Literally everything about this book (especially the writing, premise, and characters) is amazing, and I need the sequel as soon as possible!
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson:
I think I just have a thing for Morgan Matson’s writing style, and everything about this story (especially the main romance) was super endearing!
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas:
I swear the Throne of Glass series only gets better with each book
Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter:
THE WRITING! Also, this has to be one of the weirdest books I have ever read, but also one of my all time favorite fantasies!
As of this book, Magnus Chase is officially my favorite Rick Roridan series after the original Percy Jackson books! Plus the entire series is super diverse, and that’s great, especially for a series that is technically middle grade!
Well that’s about it for my favorite books of 2016! Thanks for reading and happy 2017!
