Best Books I’ve Read in 2016


It’s that time of year when I look back on what I read during the previous year and talk about some of my favorite books, series, or authors. And this year, I’ve decided to join up with the Top 10 of 2016 event sponsored by Two Chicks on Books.  This list isn’t in Top 10 format because I created it before I knew about this list, but the rest will be Top 10s!

Although 2016 was horrible in some aspects (ok, a lot), I did find some amazing new series and authors for my all-time favorites/obsessions list.  A few are already incredibly popular, I just fell into them late.  But several are debuts that I can’t wait for more of!

Without further ado, here’s my top picks of 2016!  (I decided to group them by type.)

Picture Books:

Flora and the PeacocksNobody Likes a GoblinThe Storybook Knight

Graphic Novels:

Monstress, Volume 1: AwakeningThe Nameless CityCrystal CadetsDC Super Hero Girls Vol. 1: Finals CrisisThe Tiger (Love, #1)

Art/Coloring Books:

Pop Painting: Inspiration and Techniques from the Pop Surrealism Art PhenomenonPop Manga Coloring Book: A Surreal Journey Through a Cute, Curious, Bizarre, and Beautiful WorldThe Throne of Glass Coloring Book


Lotus and ThornShadow Magic  (Shadow Magic #1)A Promise of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles #1)A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire, #1)The Call

New to Me Series:

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire, #1)Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, #1)The Aeronaut's Windlass

I think that about covers all the amazing books that I read this year.  I know I didn’t get them all reviewed here, but I did try to leave mini reviews on Goodreads.  I’m looking forward to what 2017 has to offer and have already started reading a few arcs for review.

What were your favorite reads of 2016?  Did you find a new series or author that you’re now obsessed with?  I’d love to hear about them in the comments!
