My Top Reads of 2016

monthly-reads-roundup5I have been thinking of the best way to tackle this post, because the ordinary top ten just won’t cut it. There are some series that need to be included because every book is a 5* gem, but I don’t want to fill up my top ten spaces with books from the same series or spin off series, as this will push out other 5* books that deserve to be featured on my top ten. So, my list is as following:

In no particular order…

Mistborn Series by Brandon Sanderson: The Final Empire (book one), The Well of Ascension (book two).

Rise of the Sparrows by Sarina Langer


The Great Library Series by Rachel Caine: Ink and Bone (book one), and Paper and Fire (book two).

The Promiscus Guardians Series, The Guardians in Love Series, and The Underground Guardians Series by Brianna West.

The Girl with all the Gifts  by M.R. Carey


The Last Orphans by N.W. Harris


The Making of Gabriel Davenport by Beverley Lee


Colossus by Jette Harris


Eleonore by Faith Rivens


The Siblings by A. Morgan


Although the above list is not in a particular order, I decided to pick my top read of 2016! Drum roll, please…


And my top read of 2016 is actually a draw between Sanderson’s Mistborn: The Final Empire, and Carey’s The Girl with all the Gifts. I just can’t choose between the two, so why should I?

Thank you to everyone who has followed the reviews on my blog, Goodreads, and Instagram. Happy New Year!

  1. It’s such an honour to be featured alongside such amazing books!! Rachael and I are chuffed that you included us! ❤ Thank you, K 🙂
    I'll finally get to the Mistborn series this year as well. I want to wait until I've read most other books on my shelf so I can dive straight into the sequels afterwards 😛
