Top 10 Books of 2016

It’s the end of the year! SO many books were read in 2016. I set out a goal to complete 50 books this year and I actually read 72! I’m going to try for 60 in 2017. I have a lot on my plate in the coming months so my reading time will sadly be dwindling down. I’m honestly surprised I even read as many as I did this year. As soon as college started up again in September I don’t think I’ve finished more than 5 books. Gasp, I know.

These are in no particular order, but here are my top 10 favourite books that I have read in 2016. Enjoy!

1to5books2016Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

My ReviewGoodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

I’ve been meaning to read this classic for ages and finally got around to doing it this year. I loved it. I am looking forward to trying another of his novels in 2017.

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

My Review / Goodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

I flipped out when I was given a chance to read the ARC of this novel. I love reading Colleen Hoover’s books. I hope she has one in the works for 2017!

All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

My Review / Goodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

This was a really unique take on how two characters survived WWII.

The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

My Review / Goodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

This was my favourite book in the duology written by Renee Ahdieh. How she wrote the romance scenes were fantastic. I can’t wait to see what other books she writes.

The German Girl by Armando Lucas Correa

My Review / Goodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

This book was so emotional. A part of the Second World War that is not mentioned quite enough.

6to10top10The Diviners by Libba Bray

My Review / Goodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

A 1920s setting with magical elements. Need I say more?

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

My Review / Goodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

YA written by a male author was interesting and I needed to finish this series as I have heard great things about it.

The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

My Review / Goodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

A great sequel to the Bone Season. I can’t wait for the third one in the series to come out in 2017.

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

My Review / Goodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

I saw this on NetGalley and thought the premise seemed cool. Not only was it cool but this was fantastic!

And I Darken by Kiersten White

My Review / Goodreads / Amazon / BookDepository / Indigo

Another one I saw on NetGalley and decided to give it a try. Vlad the Impaler but as a woman mixed with Game of Thrones vibes.

Honorable Mentions: The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman, Plum Island by Nelson DeMille, Burial Rites by Hannah Kent, The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi & The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.

And that’s a wrap on 2016! I hope you all have had a wonderful year and I can’t wait to see what 2017 brings!
