Top Ten Tuesday is feature by the wonderful blog The Broke and Bookish which celebrates lists! Especially lists of books! You should all join in right now.
So far this year I’ve read 27 books, and eight of those had 2016 release dates. That already makes this week’s TTT a little hard since the topic is Favorite 2016 Releases So Far This Year, and I haven’t actually read ten.
Instead, here’s a list of my five favourite 2016 releases, all of which I gave either four or five stars.
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
goodreads • review to come
This book made me insanely happy, and I totally fell in love with all the characters. It also featured the cutest love interest I have ever come across in YA fiction. Yep, Clark is definitely one of my favourite characters.
A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab
This was just insane. Everything about it was clever and magical and sometimes crazy. I’m desperate to carry on with the series because I need more of Kell and Lila right now.
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
This was yet another fantastic book – it had an incredible world, the sassiest characters ever, a boatload of action, and it was pretty brutal. What more do you want in a book?
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
Probably the most beautiful writing I’ve read this year. Maggie always enchants me with her books, and then she throws in a load of wonderful characters that keep me hooked.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
This was SO much better than ACOTAR (which I enjoyed anyway). This is possibly my favourite Sarah J. Maas book, or it at least ties with Crown of Midnight. The relationship development between Feyre and Rhysand was wonderful, and Mor became my new favourite character in the series. I’m very excited about book three.
Those are my top reads so far this year, but I’m expecting great things from the next six months!
