Books Read in 2016

I was thinking about all the books I read in 2016, because I read a lot and usually, when I finish a book, I don't take time to reflect or even review it before I move on to what's next on my To Read pile.

So I picked this quiet morning after all my guests left (*sniff*) to list out everything I read in 2016. I'm counting the audiobooks here but not the books I reread (mostly romance). There are too many to review each one, so I'll bold my favorites. (Oh! And this list is just in random order.)
  1. Take the Key and Lock Her Up (See How They Run #2) (The latest series from fave author Ally Carter and it's sooo good.) 
  2. Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall
  3. Map of Fates (The Conspiracy of Us #2) by Maggie Hall
  4. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (The sequel to Six of Crows, my favorite book from last year, was kind of a let down.)
  5. Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
  6. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
  7. Gift of the Magi (Heist Society spinoff) by Ally Carter
  8. Trust Me, I'm Lying by Mary Elizabeth Summer
  9. Blameless (Parasole Protectorate #3) by Gail Carriger 
  10. A Scot in the Dark by Sarah MacLean
  11. Places No One Knows by Brenna Yovanoff (Probably my favorite book of 2016; a uniquely-written YA that I couldn't put down. I even searched the author's home city of Denver for an autographed copy...which I found.)
  12. The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins
  13. The Winner's Kiss (The Winner's Trilogy #3) by Marie Rutkoski (The end of a fantastic, romantic, adventure-filled YA series.) 
  14. Radiance by Grace Draven
  15. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
  16. Ruined by Amy Tintera 
  17. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
  18. The Raven King (The end of another fantastic, romantic, adventure-filled book series from another favorite author Maggie Stiefvater.) 
  19. Hero (The Woodcutter Sisters) by Alethea Kontis
  20. Cress (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marisa Meyer
  21. Winter (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marisa Meyer
  22. A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir (Part of a violent but ambitious series that I'm totally sold on seeing through to the bloody end ... two more books to come.) 
  23. The Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard 
  24. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern 
  25. Made for You by Melissa Marr
  26. Longbourne by Jo Baker
There are likely a few titles I'm missing here, but all in all a very underwhelming year of books. Here's hoping for more super-stars next year.
