Best Books of 2016

Saturday, December 31, 2016

2017 is fast approaching and with it comes a ton of books that I absolutely cannot wait to read. But before I dive into what’s coming, it’s time to take a look back at the books of 2016. I read 152 books this year, many of which I loved and fortunately only a few that I don’t care to revisit. I tried 33 new (to me) authors, and found some amazing authors whose books I cannot do without (Kerrigan Byrne, Samanthe Beck, Valerie Bowman, Kristi Charish, Chanel Cleeton, Stacy Reid, Tiffany Reisz, and Katee Robert are now on my autobuy list). And finally, I participated in my seventh A to Z Reading Challenge, a fun challenge that usually leads me to at least a couple of books I might not have moved to the top of my TBR pile otherwise.

I was fortunate enough to read a number of fantastic books this year, so it was incredibly difficult to pick my favorites. Try as I might, I couldn’t narrow it down to a top ten list, so this year it’s going to be the top sixteen books that I read in 2016:

My Top Sixteen Books of 2016

Note: My picks weren’t all published in 2016, but all were new-to-me reads for the year.
Also note: The books are alphabetized by author as I love them all equally.

oh so many good ones you listed here!!!

I definitely am in love with Kerrigan Byrne, she is one of the best HR authors I have ever read. I just read Duke of Sin today and LOVED it. So different but fun. I am impressed with The Goal. So dang good. Glad you liked that one too.

I see that I will need to pick up His Royal Secret, since I have read so many good recommendations on that one.

I hope you like His Royal Secret! I'm so excited to read the sequel, but I want to have uninterrupted reading time to enjoy it.

Glad you liked a lot of the same books! It was really hard narrowing down the "best of" list this year, but that's always a good problem to have :)
