BEST OF 2016: TOP 5 Fiction


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


4. I’ll Meet You There (5 stars) by Heather Demetrios

3. It Ends With Us (5 stars) by Colleen Hoover


2. A Man Called Ove (5 stars) by Fredrik Backman


1. The Summer That Melted Everything (5 stars) by Tiffany McDaniel


Have you read any of these titles yourself? What were your favorite fiction reads of 2016? Feel free to comment! 🙂

  1. I read A Man Called Ove though it didn’t make my Top 5 Fiction list, I had one Outstanding Book of the Year, The Bridge of Beyond by Simone Schwarz-Bart and then five top ficiton, included Elena Ferrante’s The Days of Abandonement, Han Kang’s Human Acts, Nayomi Munaweera’s What Lies Beneath, Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God and Nawal El Saadawi’s Woman at Point Zero.

  2. I’ve seen nice comments about The Man Called Ove. I think my favourite (New)reads of the year were Margaret Atwood’s ‘Maddaddam’ and (despite her tendency to play around with history a bit) the two by Philippa Gregory that I reviewed recently – The Other Queen and The Taming of the Queen.

  3. So so happy to see The Summer That Melted Everything on this list! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Tiffany twice over the past few months at events and she is such a lovely person! TSTME was definitely one of my absolute favorite books of all times!
