Top Ten Books I Read and Reviewed in 2016
From the title, you can probably tell that I didn’t limit myself to books actually published in 2016, but just books that I read (and reviewed—since I have a few books I haven’t reviewed yet) in 2016. I had a little bit of a hard time limiting this to ten books, but I managed it. These are listed in roughly the order I read them (backwards from latest to earliest reads of the year).
(Links go to my review)
1. Scythe by Neal Shusterman
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again—Shusterman is a genius.
2. The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron
I don’t think I’ll be forgetting this book any time soon.
3. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
I loved this books so much I was inspired to write a spoiler-filled discussion of it as well! Check it out if you’ve read the book!
4. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
This book is so darn strange that I almost gave up on it—but it ended up being amazing and unforgettable.
5. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
So fun and unique!
6. The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This is, strangely, the only contemporary on my list this year. I read lots of great contemps, but the fantasies always seem to stick out to me more in the end.
7. This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
I jumped on the Schwab bandwagon and now I see what all the fuss is about!
8. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
This was an amazing piece of historical fiction and I loved every minute of it.
9. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I wasn’t expecting to love this book as much as I did. It was completely unique and held my attention for every second.
10. Written in Red by Anne Bishop
I loved this entire series, which I read in one, long binge-read. Can’t wait for the next one11
