My top fifteen favorite reads from 2016

I read so many amazing books in 2016! I wanted to put them all on this list. I tried to narrow it down to ten but I gave in to fifteen.
I can't wait to find my 2017 favorites!

What were your favorite reads last year?

(There is no particular order to these books.)


EVER THE HUNTED (Clash of Kingdoms #1) by Erin Summerill
Loved this book. Love the author.

SIX OF CROWS and CROOKED KINGDOM  (Six of Crows #1 & #2) by Leigh Bardugo
Her characters are so well developed that I mourned with them, wanted to slap them silly and loved them.

TRUTH OF EMBERS (Dragonsword #3) by Catilyn McFarland
Do you like dragons? Read this series! Do you like romance AND dragons? Read this series!


THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STARS by Katherine King
I love Ms. King's writing style!


AS YOU ARE (The Jonquil Brothers #3) by Sarah M. Eden
Anything by Sarah Eden is worth your time. Especially ones about the Jonquil brothers.


DAUGHTER OF THE PIRATE KING by Tricia Levenseller
Pirates! Romance! Yes, please!


GILDED CAGE (Dark Gifts #1) by Vic Smith
Aristocrats, magic and the dark side of both.


THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN ME IS YOU by Lily Anderson
Taming of the Shrew meets modern day high school. Totally cute!


THE WRATH & THE DAWN (The Wrath and the Dawn #1) by Renee Ahdieh
Beautiful story inspired by A Thousand and One nights.


THE READER (Sea of Ink and Gold #1) by Traci Chee
A book that tells the future as you read it?


HAG-SEED: THE TEMPEST RETOLD by Margaret Atwood
A retelling of tempest in a prison. It's awesome.

 SLAVE QUEEN (An Omar Zagouri Thriller #3) By H.B. Moore
I love this series. The author goes back and forth between our time and the time of Ottoman empire. And there's lots of romance.



WILLOWKEEP by Julie Daines
Ghostly letters and love among the willows.



BEAUTY AND THE CLOCKWORK BEAST by Nancy Allen Campbell
The title sums up the story nicely.

I haven't read those books, but they all look good. I'm embarrassed to admit that other than online news articles and books I've already read, I didn't read a lot in 2016. I mostly read students' papers, sighhh...

But student papers are just as important! You're doing good work!
