In this post, I will talk about the books I have read in 2016 and that I have loved the most. When I talk about my favorite books of 2016, it doesn’t necessariably mean they were released in 2016, it’s just that I read them in 2016. Also, I’m not counting re-reads, because I only re-read some og the Harry Potter books and that would be unfair to the other books. So here are the top 5 books I have read in the first half of 2016.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I have talk about this book in a few posts, mainly about the new characters and the couples that developed in this book, I just feel like all the little problems I had with the first one were fixed. Honestly, I haven’t read a book as good as this one in a long time. It was full of romance, magic and character development, which are all things I love. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
I have said this before, but I was not expecting what happened in this book This book broke me and it put me back together, only a little worse for wear. It was equals part heartbreaking and beautiful. I loved reading about the characters again and I loved the fact that even if it was a deeply sad book, it was still very simillar in style to the other ones that were more fun, quick reads perfect for summer.
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
The main aspect I enjoyed about this series and about this book in particular is the complex, intriguing and fascinating characters that Stieg Larsson created. I especially loved Lisbeth Salander. Furthermore, I also loved the journalistic investigation aspect of the book and the way all the pieces of the mystery finally were discovered and woven together. (Here’s the post were I talk about why you should read this series)
The King’s Men by Nora Sakavic
There were two main things I liked about this series (I read all three book one after the other and I loved them), the first one was the unique elements of the plot (a competition of a fictional sport and organized crime fammilies all in the same story) and the second are the complex and diverse characters.
Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella
I went into this book without knowing what to expect, because the premise sounded ridiculous; nonetheless, once I started reading it I fell in love with it. I really liked the subtle romance, the writing style, the 20’s references and the relationship between Sadie and Lara. This is a very funny book, but one thing I will tell you, if you are gonna read this book, be prepared for secondhand embarresment… and a lot of it!
Have you read any of these books? Did you enjoy them? Which books are your favorite so far in 2016?
