Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly themed post hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week features a different theme/prompt for which you come up with a list of 10 books. This week’s theme: top ten books of 2016. Rather than focusing just on books released on 2016, I’m going to be including any book that I read in 2016. As usual, links will take you to Goodreads. I’m also including links to my reviews in case anyone is interested!
I’ve talked about this book a lot but that’s because I just really loved this book. I read it when it was about to be released as Fear My Mortality and it has since been re-released as Beyond the Ever Reach. I’m really excited for when I read the sequel, Beneath the Guarding Stars, which the author was kind enough to send me a copy of.
This was a great sci-fi book with a very interesting world and a ton of political intrigue that was just so fascinating to me. I know a lot of other readers have been loving this book, too.
This doesn’t come out for another few days in the US (January 3rd!) but I recently read an ARC of it and loooooved this book. If you’re looking for a good book that talks about mental health, I can’t recommend this highly enough. I’m probably going to buy myself a copy so that I can reread it at some point.
I devoured this book after borrowing it from the library. I loved reading about a genderfluid main character and thought that Garvin did quite a good job of writing them.
I honestly loved this so much more than I was expecting to. This was written really well and I loved the romance and pretty much everything else about the book, haha. I bought Richardson’s other book which I really ought to read soon…
I kept hearing people rave about this and the fat representation in the book, so I picked it up from the library and really loved this book. Murphy is releasing another book in 2017 that has a bisexual main character and I’m SO excited.
I kind of put off reading this one because even though I really loved Sepetys’ two WWII books, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about one set in the 1950s. But I honestly think this may actually be my favorite Sepetys book (although it is SO HARD to choose one). I flew through this book.
I wasn’t expecting to like this one as much as I did, mostly because I have a hard time connecting to middle-aged protagonists, especially when they’re men. But this book had me eagerly turning the pages and I loved it. It was a great sci-fi thriller and it’s definitely a book that I’d recommend.
This had a couple of things that annoyed me but, overall, I really loved it. I thought the world was really interesting and I quite enjoyed the romance. I can’t wait to see where the rest of the series goes.
I read this after seeing quite a few bloggers reading and loving it and I’m really glad I did. I loved how diverse the characters were and was pleasantly surprised to find out the main character is bisexual. It wasn’t the strongest book I read, but the world-building was phenomenal and I’m still really looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
