Top Ten Tuesday - Best of 2016

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. They feature a different top ten list every week. This week's topic is best books of 2016.

Did you really think I could stop with ten?

Including all the books in the Harry Potter series, I have nineteen on this list. Considering the fact that I have read well over two hundred books this year (240 and counting), I think that is a pretty good number.

What are a few of your favorite books that you read in 2016? Have you read any on this list?


  1. After I Do made my list too!! I just finished and really enjoyed Illuminae. Maybe in Another Life was a favorite last year I think for me. I am still waiting on the first HP from the library but 2017 will be my year for those books!!

  2. I couldn't stick to just 10 either! I haven't read quite as much as you (I'm at 224 as of now, and I'm hoping to finish one or two more before 2017), but I agree, it's too hard to pick just ten from that list. You read some fantastic books! I hope that 2017 brings even more great books to your doorstep!

  3. Hurray for Harry Potter and Taylor Jenkins Reid! Awesome selections. Looks like you had an amazing reading year! I still need to get to my copy of Salt to the Sea...

  4. I didn't get a chance to reread the Harry Potter series this year, but hopefully next year! I've never read Taylor Jenkins Reid before, but I have a couple of her books out of the library now. I'm really looking forward to them - I see her books on so many blogs, I figured it was time to check her out!

  5. Wow, many of the books you've listed sound really good. Happy reading to you in 2017!!

    Here's my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2016/12/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-best-books-of.html

  6. I just tried The Winner's Curse earlier this year too - and I really enjoyed it. :)

    Check out my TTT and my current giveaway.

  7. There's not a year that goes by where I plan on reading the HP books..sigh. And yet, to this day, I haven't read a single chapter. So glad to see Ari and Dante, Salt to the Sea from your list!

    Thanks for sharing your top reads of 2016!

  8. I love Illuminae and the Winner's Curse! And I recently picked up the Impostor Queen definitely excited for it! I just got the 2nd illustrated HP book, so I think it might be time for a re-read. Awesome list, Cynthia!
