My 2016 books ranked best to worst!

Happy New Year!

2016 was a great year of reading for me, I discovered some amazing books and branched out into genres that I have never tried before. I pushed myself to read more demanding books (Black Rock White City, Wide Sargasso Sea), while also enjoying the fun ones (The SelectionFangirl). While most of my favourites were read at the beginning of the year (Eleanor & ParkDaughter of Smoke & Bone, Uprooted) I did have some nice surprises just before the end (A Court of Mist and FuryHeir of Fire). By far the worst book of the year was The Honeyfield Bequest and I have learned never to trust the books marked most popular at my local library. According to Goodreads the longest book I read was Empire of Storms (it certainly felt that way!)

In terms of real life —-> most of my days were spent with bubba, while also working part-time to bring in a little extra money. We moved house in September, becoming ‘real’ grownups with a mortgage (not to mention a baby!). The last few months of 2016 were spent unpacking, job hunting, settling into a nice church community and looking forward to our daughter’s second Christmas. Books have always been and will always be my refuge when life gets demanding.
