Top Ten Tuesday #3: Best Books of 2016

Image
Hello! Thank you for tuning in again, or welcome if you are new. Today is Tuesday so it's another Top Ten Tuesday and it's hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I'll leave a link to their blog below. Today's topic is the best books I read in 2016 and I have to say a lot of these books are the same books that are on my other list as well. It's probably because I'm very hard to please when it comes to books. These books, however, are by far my favorites of the year so let's get started. Note: These are not in any particular order.

10.) To All the boys I've loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han
I think I've mentioned this book three times already on this blog but it's so worth it. This book is so cute because Lara Jean is just so helpless when it comes to boys and then her little sister, Kitty, is the best side character ever. She's just so cute and then so funny to see. I love the family side of this book and I think that's wh…

Book Review: Flawed

Image
Hello and thanks for tuning in! Today is another book review but I feel as though it's going to be very unorganized because my thoughts on this book are so unorganized. Anyway, let's get to it.

Summary: You will be punished… Celestine North lives a perfect life. She’s a model daughter and sister, she’s well-liked by her classmates and teachers, and she’s dating the impossibly charming Art Crevan. But then Celestine encounters a situation where she makes an instinctive decision. She breaks a rule and now faces life-changing repercussions. She could be imprisoned. She could be branded. She could be found flawed.

Review: The only reason I picked up this book is because of the cover. The main character is on the front cover and she's a person of color. Even though I don't like books with people on the cover, I love the fact that Celestine, this biracial girl, is on the cover. Like, that's rarer than Democrats and Republicans agreeing on something. However, it's not a…

Book Review: Exit, Pursued by a Bear

Image
Hey! Thanks for tuning in! Today I have a book review for you. To sum up my thoughts on this book in one word, great. If I didn't have to study for finals I would have read this in one sitting. In this review, there will not be spoilers.

TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE
Summary: Hermione Winters is captain of her cheerleading team, and in tiny Palermo Heights, this doesn’t mean what you think it means. At PHHS, the cheerleaders don't cheer for the sports teams; they are the sports team—the pride and joy of a tiny town. The team's summer training camp is Hermione's last and marks the beginning of the end of…she’s not sure what. She does know this season could make her a legend. But during a camp party, someone slips something in her drink. And it all goes black.

In every class, there's a star cheerleader and a pariah pregnant girl. They're never supposed to be the same person. Hermione struggles to regain the control she's always had and faces a wrenching decision about …

Hello! I'm back with another Top Ten Tuesday, created by The Broke and the Bookish. I'll leave a link to their blog below. I probably should be doing college stuff right about now but I figured this was just as important. This week is the Top Ten Books I look forward to in 2017. I'm excited for this list mostly because I'm excited for these books to come out. Anyway, thanks for reading and let's get to it.

10.) Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson
I recently heard about this book because I follow the author on Twitter. The summary of this book talks about killing a baby and being accused of doing it. I don't know where the author is going to take this story but I can't wait to check it out. It's expected release is January 24, 2017.


9.) Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana
I'm going to be honest, I had no idea what this book was going to be about when I first saw it.  I still have no idea what this book is about but the author is a person of col…

10.) Sarah J. Maas, author of A Court of Thorns and Roses & Throne of Glass
So I read the first book from each of her series. The first book I ever read of hers was Throne of Glass. I was hearing such amazing things about it so I finally decided to see what all of the hype was about. Hate isn't the right word for how I felt about this book. However, I was let down a lot. I thought this book was going to be all badass but it was mostly about relationship drama. The second book I read of hers was A Court of Thorns and Roses and I have to say it was much better than her other series. This book i…
