Hope everyone had a good Christmas.
The end of December means that it is time for my favourite books of 2016. These don’t just have to be books that have been published this year, but any that I’ve read for my Goodreads challenge.
At the time of writing this my Goodreads year in review looks a little like this:
I managed to surpass my goal of 55 books with 75, not including re-reads. I don’t know what I truly expected but that is pretty good, especially with all the issues that have cropped up over the year.
Anyway, I digress.
There have been some pretty amazing books and novellas this year and I want to show them off. There are 18 in total and they are:
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone
- A Darker Shade of Magic
- Le Petit Prince
- Stars Above
- Lady Midnight
- This Savage Song
- The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
- Dr Turner’s Casebook
- Wolf by Wolf
- The Improbability of Love
- Half Lost
- The Wrath and the Dawn/The Rose and the Dagger
- Playing With Fire
- Northanger Abbey
- Empire of Storms
- The Book of Life
Of course there are also some honourable mentions and these are:
These books have kept me sane. They’ve been there regardless of everything that’s happened and the greatest thing is that I can always go back to any of them and re-enjoy them all over again.
So that is it.
That’s my 2016 in books.
