Every year, one of the most anticipated blog posts I put together is a “Best of” lists. Earlier this week I shared my favorite films of the year, so today, I am of course, sharing the most important thing – favorite books of 2016!
This year, I discovered I didn’t have as many books as I expected, but those I did rediscover were top shelf, brilliant reads. (Plus I have zero doubt I am – even still – shamefully missing some books that deserve a spot on this list.) So many of these novels I’m sharing about today are the kind of stories that stick with you long after the whoosh caused by the flip of that final page.
The wide array features a “little something” for everyone, and spotlights several stellar examples of talent including Indie and
traditional authors plus young adult literature. Without further ado, let’s have a look at those books!
BEST BOOKS OF 2016
(If available, book reviews are linked in title.)
10. Together at the Table by Hillary Manton Lodge | Hillary always gives reader’s a roller coaster of a story (in the best way), and this is no different. Her final novel in the ‘Blue Doors’ trilogy is wonderfully and complete. Amazon | Goodreads
11. The End of theWorld by Amy Matayo | This book was one I wasn’t sure would be for me because I liked “happier” stories (in general), but I’m ever so glad to have experienced it. It’s one of the best contemporary novels I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Amazon | Goodreads
15 / 16. Keep Holding On and Like Never Before by Melissa Tagg | Melissa released two of her signature romcom’s this past year, and of course, I couldn’t pick just one, so I include them both. For reasons. Amazon | Goodreads, Amazon | GoodreadsBest Books of 2016: Finding Wonderland’s Most Memorable Reads of the Year #BestOf #FWarchives #BookLovers Click To Tweet
As I’m wont to do, I shamefully forgot to add these novels on my “official” list (above). This in no way means I enjoyed them any less, it simply means I’m terrible at sitting down and plotting these lists.
1. Velvet Undercover by Teri Brown | Really enjoyed this WWI mystery novel, plus I’m such a novice when it comes to YA historical reads, so it was nice to be immersed inside such a world. Amazon | Goodreads
