The Novels I Read In 2016: Part Two — My Top 10 List! (The Hits & Favorites)

Lists & Such

A 2016 Wrap-Up Post!

So here are the awesome novels I read this year! (Check out Part 1, where I talk about the mehs and disappointments of 2016 in terms of novels.)

I’m not ordering these great books in a numbered list because no one book stood out that much more than all the others. All the books in this post were great reads that I highly recommend, and I’ll talk more about them below. (I also just noticed I have a nice mix of genres, too: fantasy, sci-fi, historical, thriller, contemporary, and romance! Wow, that’s awesome!)

So you may have noticed that the blog has been kinda quiet these past few weeks. It’s mainly due to the fact that life is busy and stressful for me right now. I’m becoming tired of/discontent with my interning job, even though nothing much really has changed, just some work shift/timing adjustments and whatnot, and I might be moving (actually, I very likely will be moving) at the end of March, but to where I don’t yet know.

The thought of clearing out my apartment in sixty days and moving somewhere else (I’ve lived in this home my entire life) is kind of scary and super stressful. Isn’t moving said to be the third most stressful event in life, after death and divorce? Yeah, I understand why now. My skin is angry red, my weight is fluctuating, and I’m in this weird funk where I feel like the universe is against me.

Obviously I’m not sharing the whole story — who actually does? But I just need to say something to someone in the world because I don’t feel like it’s the right time yet to share this news with the people in my life I see on a regular basis. So consider yourself lucky that I’m blabbering to the internet first, haha.

The Annual End of Year Book Survey: 2015 Edition!

Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner runs The Annual End of Year Book Survey. Last year I participated in this gigantic end of the year tag, and this year I’m going to do it again!

I am not answering every single question since there are a few that I really don’t have answers to (such as, “favorite quote” — because I’m just not a quote person). I am answering 98% of the questions, though. Also, I am including books I read that weren’t released in 2015, for obvious reasons. And I’m going to try to spread the love around. (You may remember that last year I basically only talked about the same two books, The Scorpio Races and Midwinterblood, ha.) Also, click on titles to read my reviews — I reviewed all but four of the books I read this year!

Here’s my year in books! (Be warned, this is a super long post! I hope you’ve got a snack with you.)
