Favorite Books of 2016!!


2016 was an amazing year for books! I laughed.. I cried.. I got so angry I wanted to throw my kindle across the room.. I let out a lot of dreamy sighs.. and I loved every minute of it! I found new authors that I absolutely adore and wait with great anticipation for their next book baby to be released! I was able to read over 100 books! Some of these books were just SO good that I had to read them twice! Yes, I said TWICE.. that is how much I LOVED them!

Before I look ahead to the New Year and new books, I thought I would pay tribute to some of these favorites that I fell in love with in 2016. And if choosing my top 15 books wasn't hard enough, I took the challenge from my friend Katie to only choose ONE book per author. Holy. Crow. Batman! That made this TOUGH! Some may say I cheated on one of them but in my defense it technically was ONE book! 😉 Hehe.

I will tell you that my list is not in any particular order. I absolutely LOVED all these books and there is NO WAY I'll be able to choose a ranking for them! It just is NOT possible! So don't even ask!

So... without further adieu... here are my TOP 15 of 2016!!































Head on over to Katie and Kathy's blog to check out their favorites of 2016!

  1. What a great lineup. I love the variety of styles/genres too. Very fun! :) I'm honored to be included. I'm having Arms of Promise narrated right now for Audible, so it's been super fun to listen to it and hang out again with Evan and Anna. Happy sigh. <3
