Top Ten Books of 2016

A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books of 2016…

2016 has been a pretty underwhelming year for books for me. So underwhelming, that I couldn’t even come up with ten books to put on this list. In fact, I could barely come up with seven. SEVEN. I think this is the worst reading year for me. But I am looking forward to  a bunch of books in the second half of the year! So hopefully that will make up for the slow start I’ve had this year.

1. Vicious by V.E. Schwab

I was told for years to read this book. I kind of hate myself for not reading this a lot sooner. But anyway this is one of the best books I’ve read in 2016 (and ever). I mean it’s about superheros and supervillains. C’mon?? My review.

2. Prince’s Gambit (Captive Prince #2) by C.S. Pacat

THIS SEQUEL WAS EVERYTHING. My Goodreads reaction.

3. Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo

I was pretty hesitant to read this book, mostly because I wasn’t a huge fan of Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy, but oh my god. I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK. The characters, the plot, the writing. AHH! My review.

4. Some Kind of Perfect (Calloway Sisters #4.5) by Krista Ritchie & Becca Ritchie

This series isn’t widely known but it’s one of my all time favorites and I tell everyone I know to give it a chance. My review.

5. The Winner’s Kiss (The Winner’s Trilogy #3) by Marie Rutkoski

Final books are hard. But this was the perfect ending to an amazingly crafted series.

6. Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

I will admit the last book of this series didn’t manage to completely meet my expectations, but The Dream Thieves and this one managed to leave me speechless.

7. The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath and the Dawn #2) by Renee Ahdieh

A solid ending to an entertaining duology!

What are your guys favorites of 2016? I definitely need some recommendations. I hope you’re all having a better year than me!

  1. Love seeing Some Kind of Perfect on your list. ❤ I'm dragging my feet on finishing the series because I just don't want it to be over. I read Fuel the Fire earlier this year and still haven't let myself pick up Long Way Down. I'm making it all last as long as possible. 🙂

    1. I totally get it! This series really is spectacular. When you get to the end there will definitely be a lot of feelings but you will not be disappointed. Enjoy! ❤


  2. I loved Vicious, and the Raven Cycle series is an all time favorite. I’m planning on reading The Wrath and the Dawn and The Rose and the Dagger soon- the author is part of a YA panel my bookstore is putting on, and I get to moderate! I really enjoyed The Winner’s Kiss, and it almost made my top ten.

  3. I totally feel you on the bad-year front. I could only come up with seven too, and I was horrified because I put in ALL my four and five star reads in the list, and it was STILL just 7. XD But then again, I’ve only read 25 so far. I need to step up my game. 😛

    The Winner’s Kiss was really good. And gah, Six of Crows was one hell of a book. ❤

    1. I have no idea why it was so hard to come up with books, just bad luck or if I’ve gotten pickier. Idk. Six of Crows was everything though! (: I hope your year gets better!
