Looking Back at Our Favorite Reads in 2016

Here is a list of books both Gerard and I loved that we read in 2016 and would highly recommend.  If you click the links it will take you to our reviews:

YA fantasy continues to be a favorite genre for both of us.  Books in this genre we both read and loved last year were:

A Torch Against the Night (the second book of Sabaa Tahir's Ember in the Ashes series) 
A Court of Mist and Fury (the second book of Sarah J. Mass's A Court of Thorns and Roses series)
Ruined by Amy Tintera (first book of series)
The Beauty of Darkness (third book of Mary E. Pearson's Remnant Chronicles series)

We also read some historical fiction and had a couple we both loved:

A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielsen
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

 Mystery/Thrillers we both loved:


 Those Girls by Chevy Stevens 
The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner

 Contemporary Adult Fiction:

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
What Was Mine by Helen Klein Ross
The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin

Young Adult:
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

Finally a couple children's books we both loved:

Some Kind of Courage by Dan Gemeinhart
 PAX by Sara Penny Packer

We also each made a top 12 Favorites list for 2016 so some of these will not be on those lists because we had to narrow down our favorites to just 12--a very hard thing to do!  I read 83 books last year and Gerard read 132.   You can see both our favorites of 2016 here:

  1. I wish you had a like button. I often "like" your posts but don't really have a comment to make. Have a Happy New Year!

  2. Happy New Year to you too! I wish blogs had a "like" button too.

  3. Happy New Year. I started out 2017 reading Small Great Things. I want to read another by Chevy Stevens. Still Missing is so memorable and I read that a few years ago.
