Hello guys! Today I will be sharing with you some of my favorite reads of 2016 so far. I probably should have posted something like this in June but I was really busy in June so July it is! These reads will be books I have read in 2016, some of them might be ARCs that are released a later time.
1. Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Caraval by Stephanie Garber was mindblowing. Absolutely fantastic, I could talk about it forever. Everything about Caraval stunned me, from the world building to the characters, this book had no faults. I highly recommend Caraval to any reader who loved The Night Circus by Erin Morgernstern, or any reader really. Caraval was easily one of the best reads I’ve read this year.
2. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
Do I need to explain? All Sarah J Maas books are amazing, but A Court of Mist and Fury was probably one of her best works. It was heartbreaking, and magical and full of action and…and – I just can’t. This book blew my mind. If you haven’t read A Court of Thorns and Roses yet go. Go right now, you won’t want to miss out on this series.
3. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
Though Nevernight was a really advanced read, it was still very good. I was extrememly impressed by the story and characters especially. Nevernight is a read with a world unlike any I’ve read about before and with a concept quite unique. I highly recommend this book.
4. The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
The conclusion to Stiefvater’s series was amazing. It gave me the tingles and the feels so bad, seriously. The end of the book killed me. Gansey’s fate, Blue, Adam, Ronan, some of my favorite characters ever, I loved reading about them one final time. The Raven King did not disappoint.
5. A Gathering of Shadows by VE Schwab
A Gathering of Shadows was better than A Darker Shade of Magic. There was no second book slump. This book impressed me, with new characters, and delving deeper into the histories of old characters. I finished this entire book in one day.
