As we say goodbye to 2016, and usher in 2017, I can honestly say that it has been a good year in the book world! We have had some amazing books published this year, and some awesome new authors have emerged. We have also suffered some great losses. It was a wonderful reading year for me, personally, as well. I think that I read more this year that I ever have in a single year before, and I was introduced to some wonderful new authors that I look forward to reading much more from in the future.
I have taken the majority of this week to try and determine what was actually my best of this year, and I had a very difficult time with it! I had to break it down in to categories, because I wasn’t able to pick just one!
Favorite Overall Read of the Year: There was a tie in this category!
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
Blood Curse by Quincy J. Allen
Favorite Thriller of the Year: In A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
Favorite YA of the Year: Looking for Alaska by John Green
Favorite New Author of the Year: J.D. Spikes
I’m looking forward to an awesome new year with all of you!! I hope you all have a wonderful new year!! As always, thanks for reading!!
