BEST OF 2016: TOP 5 Fiction

bestof2016top5fiction

Now 2016 is officially wrapped up, it’s time to think about those books I’ve read last year and highlight the best. Today it’s all about those fiction reads that really stood out for me. I will make a different post for other YA fiction reads and historical fiction novels, because yet again I had too many titles to choose from. I guess it’s a sign there were many excellent reads last year though. 😉


5. The Bitter Side Of Sweet (4,5 stars) by Tara Sullivan

January 2017 TBR

It’s so weird having to start typing 2017 from now on! But the new year is already on its second day and it’s time to think about what I want to read this month. Last month’s TBR worked out pretty good and I managed to read seven of the ten titles on it, so I’m hoping January will be just as good. Fingers crossed!

A new year means new books… I have quite a few ARCs still pending and I’m going to try and read them ASAP, but I also want to start reading those titles that have been on my TBR for a while. My January TBR is a mix of both, but I’m hoping to be able to focus on my exploding TBR in the next couple of months.
