Top Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2016 But Missed
(Links go to Goodreads)
1. The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
Shannon over at It Starts at Midnight raves about this as her favorite book of 2016. Based on her rec, I bought it at Anderson’s YA Lit Conference, but I haven’t managed to read it yet.
2. Replica by Lauren Oliver
I got this book at BEA and was super excited about it, but then the reviews started trickling in and they weren’t stellar, so I got scared off. I still really want to read this one, though—I just need to be in the right mood for it.
3. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
Another BEA book I was really looking forward to. Why haven’t I read it yet? I have no idea.
4. Ruined by Amy Tintera
I got this one from Edelweiss and it’s gotten stellar reviews, so I don’t know what I’m waiting for!
5. Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch
I wasn’t as enthralled with the second book in this series as I was with the first, so I was wary of picking up number three. But I got a copy of this at the YA Luncheon I went to recently, so I need to get to it!
6. Witch’s Pyre by Josephine Angelini
Ditto what I just said about Frost Like Night—except I still don’t own this one.
7. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by John Tiffany
My mom bought this one and has already read it, but I haven’t gotten to it yet.
8. It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
I won a copy of this one, and my mom read it, but now I’m not sure where it is. I’m pretty sure it’s somewhere in my house, but … Need to find it soon!
9. Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge
I have this one from Edelweiss, but it’s one of those books that I know I need to be ready to really dive into and I just haven’t gotten there yet.
10. Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
While everyone else is all abuzz about Wayfarer, I’m still staring at Passenger, which is sitting on my shelf calling to me. I purchased it at an author event when it first came out but still haven’t read it.
