Top 2016 Reads

For those who know me there is no question what my top read of 2016 is. So I’m going to start with that. Because this book isn’t just my top read for 2016, it has quickly skyrocketed to my favorite romance EVER. This is the number one book on my list of number one books.


Kulti by Mariana Zapata

I have this book on 3 devices (phone, kindle and ipad) and I cannot tell you how many times I’ve reread this book since I first read it in June. If I’m waiting in a long line somewhere? Open my phone and start Kulti. Just finished a book and don’t know what to read next? Read Kulti. You get the picture. LOL This book is my ultimate. I have also really enjoyed The Wall of Winnipeg and Me and Wait for It by MZ. The Wall was my gateway book. haha

My other top reads for 2016 are as follows in no particular order:

2. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas: I really enjoyed Throne of Glass but Crown of Midnight was deeper and I was so invested in the characters. Of course because I loved this book, I’m afraid to move on in the series. LOL

3. Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan: This one had been in my tbr pile for a while and I finally picked it up. It made me cry. The pain Archer went through? This was so good.

4. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne: As soon as I heard about this book I knew I needed to read it and that I would love it. It did not disappoint.

5. The One Real Thing by Samantha Young: This one took me by surprise by how much I enjoyed it. And that’s a good thing! I like Samantha’s writing so I already had high expectations going into it. So to be surprised? It’s a good thing.

6. The Turncoat by Donna Thorland: I used to read a lot of historical fiction but that’s one genre I read less of these days. However, I really enjoyed the Turncoat. I was gripped from the first page.

7. Untamed by Anna Cowan: This book. I can’t even explain this book coherently. The hero wears a dress for the majority of it. But the ending? The poker game? BLEW ME AWAY. I loved it.

8. A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet: Cat and Griffin were great characters and I like road trip romances. I really enjoyed that aspect of the book. The magic and the mythology were fun too.

9. Prime Minister by Ainsley Booth and Sadie Haller: Who would have thought an erotic romance would make it onto this list? And one with hints of BDSM? (Which I’m so over.) BUT it worked in this novel. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this and how much emotion there was – it definitely went way beyond the sexy times.

10. The Only Thing Worse Than Me is You by Lily Anderson: And last but not least, a YA actually made it onto my list as well. I have to thank Nath for bringing this one to my attention. It reminded me why I loved reading YA. And loved all the nerdy references.

So that’s my list.

    I knew that Kulti was your favorite book of all time because every time I ask you what you’re reading, most of the time, you’re reading Kulti again. Haha.

    I’m going to have to read The One Real Thing. Great list sweets. I love that The Hating Game is on here. I really liked that one too!

    I really need to try Sarah J. Maas. I keep meaning to because she seems popular. Maybe this year!

    Nice list πŸ™‚

    I’ve read The Only Thing Worse than Me is You obviously πŸ˜‰ Just happy that so far, everyone I’ve recommended it to is enjoying it! It’s just a fun book and I love the geeky-ness of it πŸ™‚

    Also read A Promise of Fire which was okay to me. I need to go back to The Hating Game… and eventually read Kulti.

    The Sarah J. Maas books are holding steady from reviews, Ames. You should keep going forward with that series πŸ™‚

    And oh, is the Samantha Young book the first in a series?
