Best Books of 2016:
1st place goes to:
Here is why: This book absolutely blew me away. It was one of those books that start out completely innocuous and by the time you realize it is amazing, it floors you. It rocked my world – I couldn’t stop talking about it for days and have recommended it countless people. It is a fairytale that the Grimm brothers would be proud of – this is a must read for all adults who like fantasy.
FYI the second one is out (not a sequal just the same world) and I am STOCKED to read it!
2nd place goes to:
Here is why: This book is heads and shoulders above all of the other sci-fi’s I read this year. Some were great, don’t get me wrong, but this one took my socks off. I love the characters, loved the concept, loved the writing, and the overall plot was excellent. It is a little scary for middle schoolers but anyone 14+ who likes Sci-fi needs to read this book. I find myself recommending it all the time.
3rd place goes to:
I love Michael Crichton. He is one of my go to authors. I really enjoyed reading Jurassic Park and it really amazed me to read this and compare differences with the movies and the books. I’ve wanted to read this for years and it is really a book everyone should read as adults. If you love the movies, the first book is a must read!
Best Crime (Mystery/Suspense):
Loved this mystery. For sure a darker one but great!
Vaughn, Scarlett – Eronica Unbound (Erotica) (Review)
There is a plot…silly…but the steamy scenes are impressive!
Very realistic romance. Hits you in the feels!
Hilarious and educational.
Best Short Story:
I loved this collection of stories. Very fascinating!
Best Urban (anything):
A must read for the dinosaur lover.
Best Young Adult:
Really for all ages but amazing. If this could win two categories it would win for sci-fi too.
I love Megan Bryce. Period.
