These are in no particular order and not all of them came out in 2016; I just read them in 2016. The links will take you to the blog posts in which I wrote about the books.
- The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta
- Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
- The Light of the Fireflies by Paul Pen
- Please Don't Come Back From the Moon by Dean Bakopolous
- Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
- Dumplin' by Julie Murphy
I can't wait to read some of your favorites from the year so I can add to my ever-growing pile of books to read!
Dumplin' made my list too!ReplyDelete
I think Marchetta has another book out.
I don't think I loved Eleanor and Park, but I read it about 3 years ago and I still remember it well and it stuck with me. So it certainly served its purpose in that way.ReplyDelete
Probably the mark of a good book :)
Dumplin' and E&P were such great books!ReplyDelete
oh i loved The Piper's Son - so good! Winter Garden is on my list. I loved E&P and Dumplin too. So good!ReplyDelete
I just discovered Rainbow Rowell and Kristin Hannah this year, and now I'm wondering why it took me so long to read a book by them! I've heard so many great things about Dumplin' and I hope that I get to read it soon!ReplyDelete
I've heard so many amazing things about Dumplin'! I need to read it ASAP.ReplyDelete
Dumplin, E&P, Please Don't Come Back from the Moon...I want to hug your list.ReplyDelete
Marchetta's new book is incredible. I highly, highly recommend it. Not sure what it didn't make my best of list. Had to cut somewhere, I guess.
I really enjoyed E&P and look forward to reading more of Rainbow Rowell in 2017. Dumplin and The Light of the Fireflies are also on my TBR. So many good books, too little time!ReplyDelete
I enjoyed E&P and really loved Winter Garden and mentioned it on my list too :) I read Dumplin' and The Piper's Son this year too and quite liked them!!!ReplyDelete
I really love Rainbow Rowell, but I still need to read Eleanor & Park. Glad to see it was top read for you this year!ReplyDelete
Eleanor & Park is my favorite Rainbow Rowell book! I loved Winter Garden and thought Dumplin' was okay.ReplyDelete
