Top 10 of 2016: Best Books of 2016!

So, I am participating in at least a little bit of Top 10 of 2016. This is hosted by @Fiktshun

This is a week-long event but I may not participate in all of them. Today's is the Top 10 Best Books of 2016. 

#1: Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter is one of my favorite books because The Lunar Chronicles is such an amazing series and ugh, the characters are just so lovable and I just adore this series so much. [Time for a re-read next year]

[Not released in 2016]

#2: Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

I loved this book and heard so many good things about this book when I picked it up. It is full of fantasy, great characters, magic, and fighting. It is compared to a Young Adult Game of Thrones and I'm pretty sure that they got that right.

[Not released in 2016]

#3: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I am not normally into Paranormal Romance type books but seriously, this book. I am obsessed with this book and this book series. Katy is honestly so similar to me and then there's Daemon who is just like Damon Salvatore. Like the resemblance is almost uncanny.

#4: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan's books always make it onto my favorites lists every year. And this year, he came out with two books. Of course I haven't read the second Magnus Chase book yet. But, I did read the first one and yes, it is somewhere on this list.

#5: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

I loved this book. It was so well written and heartbreaking. I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this one and the movie adaptation.

[Not released in 2016]

#6: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

At the beginning of this year, I wasn't even really looking forward to this book but now it is on this list. This was a retelling of Hades and Persephone and it was so good. I am surprised that I haven't bought this book yet, to be honest.

[Released on April 26, 2016]

#7: Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell

Peter Pan retellings are my thing and obviously, I developed a soft spot for this book. It is compared to Once Upon a Time which is so true. Like an evil Pan and good Hook. [Oh and I got this for Christmas yesterday.]

[Released on February 2, 2016]

#8: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I did not want to read this one because I thought I would be confused since I hadn't read the first series but I loved this. Kaz Brekker guys. That's all I'm going to say. Oh, and go read this book.

[Not released in 2016]

#9: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

This is a series that I had to force myself to start. The hype is so strong with this book that I was honestly really worried but it lived up to it. Plus, a new favorite character was found in Chaol Westfall.

[Not released in 2016]

#10: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

This is one of the only New Adult books that I read this year and it is by far one of the best books. It has such an interesting concept. And all the hotties. Plus Feyre is such a badass.

[Not released in 2016]


#11: Rook by Sharon Cameron

This had such an interesting concept and it was a standalone. I read it at the beginning of this year and I badly want to revist it.

[Not released in 2016]

#12: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

I love this book and I love Juliette. I am however, not a big fan of the relationship in this book but otherwise it is amazing.

That is it for this blogpost. I'll see you all soon. [Probably with a movie review cause Rogue One and Moana and Fantastic Beasts]


  1. Yay! We have Unhooked in common. I loved the twist on Peter Pan this book had. It was amazing.

  2. Great list!I really want to read Winter and A Court of Thorns too!
