2016 has been over for a while now, so it is well overdue for me to talk about the books I have read. 2016 was the year that I decided to get back into reading, going to University and getting a Netflix account meant I basically stopped read. Therefore I am super proud of my self for reading 45 books. I didn’t reach my Goodreads goal, but that doesn’t really matter.
Goodreads created a handy little page of all the books I read, plus some fun statistics, so here is that:
Looking back I can’t believe I have read so many great books. It has been really hard, but here are my top 5 favourite reads from 2016. It should be noted that list doesn’t include any book I re-read this year.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
This was the second book I ever read by Sarah and it was amazing. This is now my favourite book, and I can’t wait to read it again in preparation for A Court of Wings and Fury.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
The story is conveyed through documents, emails and chat logs. This book is the definition of page turner, plus I have never laughed so much before at a person describing what happens in a video before.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
This book made my top 5 purely for the amount of crying I did over it, and that never happens to me.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Another Sarah J. Maas book. What can I say? Reading A Court of Thorns and Roses has me addicted. Where ACOMAF is my favourite book, Celaena is my favourite character. Her strength and bravery are admirable while her self-confidence and wit will always make me laugh.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
There is time travelling, Scotland in the Jacobite era and Jamie Fraser. Everything a girl could dream of. Plus it’s fascinating reading about Scotland in such a hostile time.
What a year! I wonder what amazing books I will read in 2017, and who will make next years top 5?
