Top Ten Reads of 2016

My goal was to read 50 books in 2016 and I actually read 65. Yay!!! And that was 65 books from January to November, because I literally read nothing in December. Oops.ย One of my favorite book days of the year is seeing what everyone’s favorite reads were over the entire year!!! These are the books you know you want to have added to your TBR! Now, these books weren’t necessarily ones that came out this year but rather ones that I read this year. They are listed in no particular order.


Me Before You by JoJo Moyes

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Swear on this Life by Renee Carlino


One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid

The Java Jive Series by Caroline Fardig- Death Before Decaf, Mug Shot, A Whole Latte Murder

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell


Love in a Nutshell by Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin


Silver Bay by Jojo Moyes

What were your favorite books of 2016?

Linking up (two days late) with Steph and Jana.

    So we had a few of the same favorites this year like The Nightingale and Me Before You! I still need to read Still Alice, but I’m a little afraid to because I know that it’ll be sad! And One True Loves! I need to read this or another Taylor Jenkins Reid book because I’ve heard nothing but great things about her!

    Yes to Me Before You and Still Alice and Eleanor & Park! And after reading everyone’s favorite books of the year I desperately want to read Swear On This Life , One True Loves, and The Nightingale! And really anything by Jojo Moyes. ๐Ÿ™‚

    i told Kristen that I was going to get back on my reading game this year — I feel like it would be a good time to jump back in, and SURPRISE, I finished a book over winter “break”. Going to read the Nightingale before the end of the month!! I MUST. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Java Jive series sounds so fun! I think Silver Bay is one of the only Moyes books I haven’t read, so I’ll definitely add it to the list for this year!

    I liked Swear on This Life much more than I thought I would!

    I haven’t read Silver Bay, I will check that one out.

    I LOVED One True Loves! I haven’t read a few of these yet, so adding them to my 2017 list ;).

    I haven’t read a single one of these! But most of them are on my to-read list. I need to check them out!
