It is great to look back on the year of 2016 in the books that I’ve read. While I read some books I didn’t really like and I dnfed more books than ever (but still not a lot compared to others) I have also rated more books 5 stars than I did in 2015. But more on that in my reading statistics post at the end of the month.
Now I want to count down the 16 books that made my 2016. As always when it concerns series I have picked one book from it even if I loved the other books as well!
16. On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis / Review
15. Illuminae (Illuminae Files 1) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff / Review

This really means the whole series though.
02.The Creeping Shadow (Lockwood & Co. 4) by Jonathan Stroud / Review
01. Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows 2) by Leigh Bardugo / Review
Are you really surprised this ended up at one? I think Six of Crows was first in my 15 of 2015 post. There is so much to love in this book. From the characters and their relationships to the diversity and plot.
What was your favorite book of 2016?
