Top Ten Tuesday : The Ten Best Books I Read in 2016

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday was particularly difficult for me. If you read my post on the many, MANY 5-Star books I read in 2016, you will understand why this was such a tough decision, but after A LOT of thought, these truly are the books I read this year that absolutely knocked my socks off and made me want to live in them for FOOORREEVVVEERRR.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the fabulous The Broke and Bookish. It’s my favorite weekly meme, because the topics are always super fun, and it’s also a fantastic way to connect with other book bloggers. Join us!

So without further ado, here are the ten best books I read in 2016 in order.

10. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas


9. The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid


8. A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir


7. The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan


6. The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

    So many of these are on my TBR. I’m really looking forward to Caraval’s release! I’m hoping that my library will get it so I don’t have to spend any more money since my bank account is crying right now, haha. I really want to read Maas’ series too since nearly everyone seems to love her books so much.

    Caraval is currently my new favorite book, and Maas’s series are my two current favorite series, so I highly recommend them! January is KILLING my book budget too! 😅 Sssoooo many good books!

    I love that cover of Lady Midnight and I’m kind of excited to read Crooked Kingdom after hearing SO many good things about that duology. Caraval sounds really good too!

  4. YAandWine says:

    The Lady Midnight cover is stunning! My favorite of all of Clare’s so far, which is saying something! I wish I felt the same way about the new Lord of Shadows cover.

    Ooh, some good books on there! Caraval must have been really good bc it hasn’t even been released yet, so it beat out a lot of titles! I want to read it badly!
