I’m picky as fuck when it comes to the book that I read and because of that this list might be a bit iddy biddy less than 10 books that usually is the recommended amount for Top Ten Tuesday. If you don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is and would love to join in the fun check out their website by clicking the banner above. With that being said, the books that I have read and love I REALLY loved. So without further ado here is my list of gushing raving adoration for books that I’ve read so far in 2016…
1|The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson: I have had this book on my TBR for SO long. I have loved each and every one of Sanderson’s work before but was so intimidated by this one because EVERYONE that read it seemed to love it. Well, I can officially say I’ve hitched my giddy up to that bandwagon and ABSOLUTLY love this story. WOW. Now I’m terrified of continuing on because then it will be over!!
2| 738 Days by Stacey Kade: This was one of the only contemporaries at this time that I’ve read today and I absolutely loved it! I couldn’t put it down! You can read my review here but despite the little things about this book it deserves a part in my favorites list.
3|A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab: This is another one like The Final Empire that I waited a long time to read it. What mainly spurred me on was the release of A Gathering of Shadows (a book I still have to read)
4| The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi: This book is pure magic and I just flew though this book so fast! Oh wow. I can’t wait for the companion novel that is coming out. Ahhh!!! There isn’t enough words to describe this. I’m not going to lie, at first I was afraid it was going to drag but boy didn’t it!
I have been privileged and received ARC’s of certain books and some of them have just blew me away. I want to include them on the list as well. But I wanted to give this book own special category so if you are looking for other books that are coming out in the next few months look out for this title because WOW!
5| Iron Cast by Destiny Soria: This book was just awesome. Kick ass heroines that are friends and I mean the live or die by friends that we all want to have. That combination added to the magic system that involves music and illusion I am just BLOWN away by this book. It comes out in October and you should DEFINITLY pick this book up. Iron Cast comes out in October and you’d be silly to miss out on such a great read!
And I Darken by Kiersten White: Oh my gosh (I feel like I’m saying that a lot) this book was such a surprise for me. When I first started reading it I just couldn’t get passed the start which I feel like dragged a little but once I did I couldn’t put it down! I even think that I went overboard with the gushing of this book in my review, but alas I loved it so much. You should definitely pick this one up and you’re in luck, it comes out really soon! Pick it up in stores June 28th 2016!
I know that’s only 6 books. But hey, at least it was a even number!
What were some of your favorite reads of the first half of 2016?
