Favourite Books Of 2016!

Hey ForeverBookers,

WOW! What a year 2016 was...I surpassed my Goodreads goal with 76 books (my goal was 75)...Here's my top 10 list of favourite books (I just read them in 2016. Not all were published in 2016).

10) Divine By Mistake by PC Cast - a mythological romance. It's ADULT.

9) The Hollow by Jessica Verday - a YA urban paranormal, using certain parts of The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow.

8) Crave Me by Geneva Lee - A contemporary ADULT love story.

7) Timeless by Gail Carriger - a cute and funny historical, paranormal story. I'd say this was adult too.

6) Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige - a great story featuring elements of The Wizard Of Oz. For aged +14 readers.

5) A Year And A Day by Isabelle Broom - a cute contemporary with enchanting and mystical elements. Could be a trigger for those who have gone through a loss though.

4) Ascend by Amanda Hocking - another great fantasy. I love the main couple in this. One scene that could be classed as new adult.

3) The Thousandth Floor by Katherine McGee - I loved this dystopian and I normally dislike all dystopian reads. I love all the romances in this story. It's a mash up of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars. Certainly for upper YA readers (16+).

2) Cinder by Marissa Meyer - my favourite book of The Lunar Chronicles. I love Kai and Cinder's relationship and we see the most of that develop in this book.

1) A Court Of Mist And Fury (ACOMAF) by Sarah J Mass - my favourite book of the year! I LOVE Rhys, and how he is with Feyrah. It only took me 3 days to read this and it's over 600 pages!! Can't wait for A Court Of Mist And Ruin!!! Definitely new adult though so for older teens and adults.

Most of the books above have reviews on my blog: If they don't have a review, it obviously wasn't because they were bad. I was just too excited to get onto their sequel(s).

What were some of your favourite reads and why? Happy 2017!!!

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy Review...
Tales Of The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…
