Before this post please go take my short and easy survey over your experience with my blog in 2016!!! It will help me make this a better blog for me and for you!
So I have officially finished my Goodreads reading challenge of 25 books (YAY) and now I feel it is time to say what my favorites and least favorite were. I am only doing my 5 favorites because I don’t feel I read enough to talk about 10 favorites and I definitely don’t feel like I have read enough to pick 5 books I didn’t like, but there is one (one and a half?) book(s) that I hated enough to just shove it into this post! Also, my rating don’t really matter to this list because it is just which books I had the most fun reading this year. So without further ado, my 5 favorites (in no particular order) and 1 least favorite book of 2016! ((Links to blog posts in the titles)
Rating – 3.5/5
I rated this rather low, but it made me laugh so hard throughout the entire thing, and now that I look at my review, I think I should have rated it a little higher. Regardless I had the best time reading this and I think anyone would enjoy reading it!
Rating – 4.25/5
It’s no secret that I love works about mental illness and this was no exception. The Bell Jar really touched me on a deeper level. I couldn’t put it down, and read it in a day. If you like books like The Catcher in the Rye, this is definitely for you!
Rating – 5/5
I picked up Christie for the first time EVER this year and have loved all three of her books I read this year. I gave Murder on the Orient the SLIGHT edge over Endless Night (see the review HERE) because I was more entertained throughout the entire book. No offense Endless Night. You were so close.
Rating – 9.5/10 ( I had a different rating system then)
This was the surprise of the year for sure. I had the book on my Amazon wishlist forever, when my sister picked up for me. She said she loved it and I was like a book about rabbits? Please. Then I read it and LOVED it! Don’t judge a book by it’s cover y’all!
Rating – 10/10 (again, different system)
Are you even surprised this is on my list? I cried in this book harder than I have ever have from reading before, and thinking about it still makes me sad. I was so impacted by this, and I say ANYONE should read it!

My least favorite book of the year was:
This was my first EVER review on my blog, and I specifically made this blog so I could rant about it. I hated it so much because it had SO MUCH potential. I also tried to pick up another Koontz novel this year, Twilight Eyes, and couldn’t even get through it. In fact, it was my only DNF of the year. So maybe Koontz just isn’t for me.
That is all! What is your favorite and least read of your year? I would love to know! Thanks for an amazing year! And lets hope for an even better year for 2017!
