Best book and/or series that you’ve read in 2016

The best book I read in 2016 has to be A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly I can repeat enough how much this book made me feel. I can’t believe I had that book on my shelves for months before I read it. 

For best series completed in 2016 I have to go with the Splintered series by A.G. Howard this series had so much wonder hidden inside it. I am so glad I got to finish reading it in 2016. Plus I will forever be talking about how big a crush I have on Morpheus and how much I wish he was real. I love him so much!

Authors that you’ve recently found and would like to read more of in the new year

Libba Bray and Samantha Shannon

Libba Bray is the author of The Diviners a book that I am really excited to get into and I hope that along with that I get to read many more of her books in the future. 

I can’t wait to read The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon, I keep hearing so many good things about it and I hope it’s the start of reading many more of her books. 

Most anticipated book turned movie/tv show?

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie I loved this book when I read it in school and I am so excited that a new movie is coming out for it on November 22nd! It’s going to be fantastic to enjoy this books mysteries once more. 

Name a character that you wouldn’t mind sharing a kiss with at midnight (if there is one)

Mr. Rikkard Ambrose, he is the first person who came to mind and the one I have had the biggest crush on for the longest time. He is perfection in so many ways! I have to say that Storm & Silence by Robert Their is complete perfection and had me laughing aloud on more then one occasion. If you are so inclined read it off wattpad here. You will not regret it for a second. 

What’s on your TBR for 2017? (Top 5 will suffice if it’s an extremely long list!)

Random 5 being: 

How many books do you hope to read in 2016?

I am hoping to read at least 60 books. I think that it is a pretty reasonable goal. 

Will you participate in the Goodreads Reading Challenge or any others (PopSugar, Read the Books You Buy, etc.)

I am indeed participating in the Goodreads reading challenge as well as: 

The 2017 keyword reading challenge 


Winter Bookish Bingo! 
Any New Year’s Resolutions? (Bookish, blogging, and otherwise)

On the first of the year I had so many improvements to be made dancing in my head so I put them all in a New Years Resolutions post here. 

To tag or not to tag…. that is the question. 

Since it is already a week in the new year I am deciding not to tag anyone, but if you do wish to participate, feel free to do so! 

Once again have a Happy New Year! 

Thank you all for reading! Let me know your thoughts in the comments. 

-Till next time!

    1. I keep hearing such good things about Replica. So I’m hoping it will be a great read for us both! I hope for a bingo for us both soon as well!


  1. OMG!!! You chose Rikkard Ambrose!!! Why hadn’t I thought of him when I first read that question. I love Storm and Silence and I’m eagerly waiting for the third book to be published. Illuminae is a great series! I really hope you enjoy it when you get to it! 🙂

    1. Rikkard Ambrose truly is ice personified. Except well for Lilly Linton, but it would be a wonderful kiss to have for a memory. I’m thinking about reading Illuminae soon so I hope that I enjoy it!


  2. Great post! 😀 I’ve just bought Splintered and I’m really looking forward to the series. I keep hearing such positive reviews for those books. It’s encouraging to see that you like the series, too! And yay! I’m glad that you’re planning to read Illuminae this year. I LOVE that book. I really hope you enjoy that one 😀
