Posted by


For the end of this year, I am here with some of my favs (and not fav) reads of the year AND I AM NOT ALONE. The #squad got together to bring to you this list of awesomeness. Hopefully you’ll find some books to add to your TBRs or give to friends! 🙂

A trilogy that concluded with you dying of heartbreak because you were so sad to see it end.

Rashika’s Pick

A love to hate romance that made you feel all tingly on the inside

Rashika’s Pick (and no, I didn’t just add this category to mention this book. SHHHH)

A book with a kiss worth dying for

A book with a super cute romance

Rashika’s Pick

A book you wish you had not read this year

Rashika’s Pick (don’t tell me prof though because she would kill me)

A book that wasn’t what you usually read but totally worth it

Rashika’s Pick

Giselle’s Pick

Amy’s Pick

A book you are really looking forward to in 2017

Giselle’s Pick

I really really can’t wait to see what Marissa Meyer has in store next with The Gatlon School for Vigilantes – it’s only coming out in November 2017 though, so loooong wait AAAH!

I also can’t wait for the next Marie Lu & Laini Taylor books.

(Rashika took the liberty of using the cover for STD because it has a cover whereas The Galton School of Vigilantes does not)

Rashika’s Pick

Lots and lots of other honorary mentions like When Dimple Met RishiWords in A Deep Blue, Letters to the Lost,  I Believe in a Thing Called Love, The Education of Margot Sanchez, Empress of a Thousand Suns, American Street and like a bazillion more. 2017 YEAR BETTER BE a good book year because it sure looks like it won’t be much else.

Amy’s Pick

Saint Death sounds awesome, and I Believe in a Thing Called Love sounds super cute.
Now to get my butt back in gear for blogging in 2017. It’s a New Years Resolution.
The following two tabs change content below.
Rashika has been tired since 2013. There are very few things that spark joy for her besides a nice cup of tea, warm, baked goods, good books and good TV shows. She is here to pile onto your giant TBRs and to-watch lists. Offer her a cookie and she might be nice to you.

    The only of these that I read is The Girl on the Train…I totally forgot about The Chemist and need to check that out! The HP is on my Jan list and I totally agree about the new Laini Taylor!!

    I read Girl On The Train a while back along with my friend and we both loved it. It’s a great book.

    I’ve also been wanting to get my hands on exit. pursued by a bear for a long long long time but never got around to actually buying it.
