  1. EEEEEEK! Suffer Love and ACOMAF are on my list too! They were SUCH gorgeous books! I loved Firsts too, but I had a few issues with it, so it isn't THAT much of a fav!

    Lovely post! And I'm a new BlogLovin follower!

    1. Loony Literate, The Rose and The Dagger was an AWESOME finale!! I am just so sad that it was a duology. I was not ready to let go of those characters.

  9. I read a Taylor Jenkins Reid book earlier this year and liked it, although I haven't read this one. And ACoMaF seems to get a lot of love- I'm glad there's so much good fantasy stuff coming out right now...

    1. Greg, oh you really need to read her other books as well. I have read three out of four of her books and I have loved each of them. I have noticed the increase in fantasy books as well. I have read a lot more fantasy books than contemporary this year.

  13. Yes to The Love That Split The World! Also one of my favorites of 2016! Other than that, I haven't read anything else, other than The Way I Used To Be, which I liked. Everyone is pressuring to make me read You Were Here, so that will happen soon!

  14. Unfortunately, I am one of those people who completely detested ACOMAF... :( The Love that Split the world and The Wrath and the Dawn duology are on my TBR (Yes, that mountainous pile that grows by 50,000 every second...) and I hope to get to them sometime in the near future! Great list, and happy reading :D

    1. Rekha, I am so sorry you didn't like ACOMAF. I have seen some of the negative reviews for it and I don't agree with them, but I kind of understand. You really need to read The Wrath and the Dawn duology. It is so good!

      Delete
  15. A Court of Mist and Fury and Firsts are definitely on my list!! I'm glad to see Suffer Love and The Way I Used To Be made your list as well. I still need to read those ones!!
