Hey guys! So, I was tagged by Beth @ Reading Every Night for this tag – so thanks for that! So, I guess without further ado, let’s start!
Best Book you’ve Read So Far in 2016:
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
Ok, I couldn’t pick one, so it’s a tie! I loved Unnatural Deeds by Cyn Balog (which is being released later this year), and ACOMAF… well, I don’t think there is any explanation necessary!
Best sequel you have read so far in 2016:
Yes, this book again! But it truly was beautiful!!
New release you haven’t read yet but want to:
Shiny Broken Pieces by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton.
Ok, so, technically this only came out today, but I still need this book in my life!
Most anticipated release for the second half of the year:
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas.
I know, Maas again! But seriously, I love this series and I cannot wait to find out what happens next!
Never Never: Part Three by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher
Ok, this series had an amazing strong start and I was loving everything about it! However, the ending and the explanation given were weak and it ruined everything for me!
Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill
I was surprised at how things went down in this book! I was not expecting to feel the emotions I did and so strongly! I think everyone who has read this book will agree, there are literally no words to describe how you feel when reading this book and how you feel when you finish this book! I finished it and I was gob smacked it took me forever to actually write a review because I no idea how to formulate what I was feeling into words! It is that good! If you haven’t read this book… then why the heck not?!?
Favourite New Author (Debut or New to you):
This is Betsy Schow! She was a new to me author when I read her book Spelled and I loved it! I was snorting and earning weird looks from my dad, but it was all so worth it! i look forward to more of her writing! She is currently writing the sequel (I Believe) to Spelled and I cannot wait!!
Newest Fictional Crush:
Rhysand from ACOMAF.
Ummm… hello!! Rhys! Do I seriously need to explain this amazing specimen of a character???
Newest Favourite Character:
Lada from And I Darken by Kierstin White
Well, she scares me and she is not a character that I would want to cross… but, she isn’t your everyday, wishy washy damsel in distress turned amazing hero. She was strong and stubborn and strong willed from the very beginning and I feel like she is a step above every other strong female character that I love because of this fact. She has never needed saving and I love the about her!
Book that made you cry:
If He Had Been With Me by Laura Nowlin.
Quite a few books have made me cry recently, but I think this book hit me the strongest! There you sit, watching these two characters fall in love and it is cutesy and feels full and bam! That ending… Box of tissues needed if you are going to brave this book! The worst thing is, you know from the very beginning what is going to happen, but that does not stop you hoping that it doesn’t!
Book that made you happy:
So, if you clicked the link, you’re probably thinking that I some kind of really weird psycho for thinking that this kind of book could ever make me happy… BUT… the outcome made me happy! I was rooting and I rooted right! Again, this book is being released later this year!
Favourite book to film adaptation:
Technically, tv show… but they are so epic!! I haven’t actually read all of the GoT books, but I am getting there! I love this show!
Favourite post you have done this year:
I don’t actually have a favourite post that I have done this year, but I did like sharing random facts about myself in TTT this week!
Most beautiful book you’ve bought this year:
I bought a physical copy of this book not too long ago with this cover and it still makes me drool every time I clap eyes on it!
What book do you need to read by the end of the year:
There are so many books, but I would have to say the ultimate goal is this one! I have had it on my nightstand for ages now, but for some reason I keep procrastinating!

I haven’t heard of Unnatural Deeds. I’ll have to look into that one.
You definitely should!! It is such a great book and definitely worth the read – but it doesn’t come out till late this year!
Reblogged this on forthenovellovers.
I feel like the only person left who hasn’t read Sarah Maas! 😉
… Well, you really need to change that!!
Winter was such a great finale to the series. And totally agree, I’m addicted to GOT.
Then I should probably get around to reading it!! GoT is the best!
I keep seeing Unnatural Deeds on NetGalley and wondering whether to request it! I’m pleased to see that it’s your best book of 2016 – might push me into finally clicking that button haha! Nice tag. 🙂 x
It is definitely worth the read and I loved it!! I wasn’t actually accepted when I first requested from Netgalley, so I had to write an email to the publisher – I am so glad I did!! Definitely recommend!!
Oh that’s awesome! 🙂 I’m glad you got it in the end – I’ll definitely be putting it on my TBR. 🙂
Oh these are amazing answers for this tag! And I am so happy to see A Court of Mist and Fury getting some love in your post as well (the ending was beyond brilliant, but now I literally cannot wait for the next book!)
Empire of Storms is another book I am so excited for (there are so many releases I can’t wait to get around to), and I need to start And I Darken soon, I am just seeing amazing review after amazing review for it!
And yes another Game of Thrones fan 😀 Have you seen the lastest episode, I think it was the best aired in a while!
Right!! I need the next book like yesterday!! That is so true… I don’t even know where to start with all the exciting releases, but EoS is definitely my list anticipated! You should read it – it is a pretty epic book. And no! I have gotten up till the episode after Hold The Door, but I refuse to watch GoT in German… So I watch it online, but I’ve had no internet recently!! But I am getting internet soon, so… Binge watching it is!
Same here, I would give anything for an early copy of it, hell I’d even read her notes on it!
And I Darken is on my to-read list this month so hopefully I’ll be able to start it soon!
God that episode made my friend cry (I never really cry at TV shows or films but I did well up a little) I won’t give any spoilers but the last episode is amazing so you have a lot to look forwards too! 😀
Right!! I hope you enjoy it 🙂 the Hodor episode upset me too!! Don’t worry, the Internet is full of spoilers and I have pretty much read them all 😂
Oh that’s a shame though, one of the things I loved when I saw the episode was that I had no clue what was coming, it was a complete surprise for me! 🙂
I always tend to read GoT spoilers, but the episode always surprises me anyway 🙂
I suppose it’s one thing to read a spoiler but a completely different thing to actually see it! 🙂
