Best Book You’ve Read Yet in 2016
I’ve read so many good books this year that it is really hard to choose but if I must I’m going to go with Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.
These characters, the story, the way t was told, the books design. I loved everything about this book.
Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2016
YES to this question! I only have one BEST sequel this year, do you guys know what it is? Do you? I’ll give you a hint it starts with A and ends with OMIGOD haha It’s ACOMAF guys if you haven’t read it. 1. Why? 2. Go read it!
New Release You Haven’t Read Yet But Want To
I have read this entire series but the last book United as One and I haven’t got around to this yet. I have forgotten what happens so I may do a re-read of the last few books and then dive into this one.
Also if you’re looking for a good sci-fy YA series I recommend I Am Number 4.
Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year
As much as I’d like to say The Cursed Child, I just can’t my most anticipated release is Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas I NEED MORE CELAENA
It’s a tie! Enders Game and Rebel Belle were both huge disappointments for me. I couldn’t stand the Main Characters
especially Rebel Belle’s and the story line didn’t grip me.
My first Colleen Hoover book and I wasn’t to sure what to expect with it. I went in blind because I knew so many people loved her writing and I’m so happy I did. This story was amazing and I had so many emotions running through me at once. I read this in one sitting, thank you past me for having the foresight to start this on a Friday night.
I don’t know what I would have done if I had to put this book down and try to do adult things like work *shudders*
Favorite New Author
Jay Kristoff. After I read Illuminae and heard about his newest book Nevernight I couldn’t wait to pick it up. I’m going to the release at Dymocks this month and I can’t wait to meet him. I was lucky enough to get this as an ARC and it was fantastic.
This book has footnotes which I liked but as I read it on an ebook it wasn’t quite formatted properly. The story take a little bit to get into but once it does it’s everything I wanted.
Synopsis: In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.
Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.
Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s past return to haunt her, and a plot to bring down the entire congregation is unfolding in the shadows she so loves.
Will she even survive to initiation, let alone have her revenge?
Are any of my Melbourne friends going to the release? Let me know in the comments!
Newest Fictional Crush
Guys it’s Rhysand, it’s always Rhysand how could you think I’d choose someone else?
Newest Favorite Character
Kady from Illuminae is my newest favorite character she’s full of sass. She’s funny, tough, and a computer genius I don’t know what more I could want.
Book That Made You Cry
I’m going with the predictable and choosing Me Before You. I didn’t proper sob like I did for TFIOS but I had some tears come out at the end. I really loved this book because whiles it is sad it’s also happy and gives you a really great feeling of doing more with your life once you put it down.
Book That Made You Happy
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
This story was just perfect. Cath is perfect, Levi is perfect. The fangirling, the fan fiction, the anxiety, the family troubles, the sibling quarrels. Every bit of this book was relatable and made the book so special to me.
I laughed a fair bit and just had a smile plastered on my face at all the amazing fluffy bits.
My only problem with this book is that I needed more and I got more even if it was of a different story because of this book I read Carry On and that was the best!
Favorite Book to Film Adaptation
Hmmm how about none? I hated the 5th wave
they ruined Cassies character in my opinion I was very meh about Me Before You, I liked it but I wasn’t satisfied with it..
OH I know The Martian, while I still didn’t like how much they changed the movie I thought the setting was really well done and enjoyed the movie.
Favorite Post You Have Done This Year
The first is the first review I did that I was really proud of which is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I loved this book so much and was really proud that I was able to review it and hopefully do it justice.

What Book Do You Need to Read by the End of the Year
I have so many books I’d like to read by this year but Vampire Academy is one of them. I just never picked this up mainly because of the name and cover but so many people have told me how much they love this series I’m finally giving it a go.
I have the first book at home and will probably buy the rest as ebooks if I enjoy them 😀
