The topic for this Tuesday is, 'Top Ten Best Books of 2016' This is going to be an incredibly hard list for me to make considering I've read a lot of awesome books this year! They are all books i've rated 5 or 4 hearts. I'm adding a couple of sentences from my reviews of these books that sums up my feelings for it!







1. FLAWED by Cecelia AhernCecelia Ahern writes so powerfully than I felt I was in the book, that I was Celestine. Her embarrassment was mine. Her fear was mine. Her hurt, her anger, her stubbornness.. all mine. 

2. NEVERNIGHT by Jay KristoffRUTHLESS. That's a word to describe the plot. Another would be BLOODY. And let me tell you, O, my gentlefriends, I am not complaining.

3. THE TREEMAKERS by C. L. Rozelle - There is a beautiful quality to Rozelle's writing that didn't allow me to put down the book (Technically my phone seeing as it's an ebook...okay, I'll disappear).

4. THE RAVEN BOYS by Maggie Stiefvater - The plot is unique, original and FREAKING AMAZING. I can't wait to pick up the next book and see where it goes.

5. AQSON LEVEL1 by Sreejib - Everyone pick up up the book and read it already! You're missing out on so much.

6. THREE DARK CROWNS by Kendare Blake - The plot, as it unraveled, took my breath away. It is dark and complicated. The twists are unexpected and in a way, creepy.And the ending. The ending left me flabbergasted and I definitely cannot wait to know what happens next till the next book is published!

7. SILVER BLOOD by Emma Hamm - Holy mother of AWESOMENESS!

8. GLIMMER by Tricia Cerrone - HOLY FREAKING MOTHER OF GOD! IT WAS AWESOME.
Spy story + Prison break + Science Fiction = Best combo ever!

9. THE GLITCH by Ramona Finn - A must read for people looking for a creative Sci-Fi plot and interesting characters.

10. THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas - Yes the book has it's flaws but I can tell you it's worth it. The story had me hooked at page one and I LOVED it.

So have you read these books? If so, what do you think of them? What's on your Top Ten Tuesday? Comment and leave a link below so I can return the favour!

  6. I'm so on the fence about reading Three Dark Crowns as I've read so many mixed reviews - I might still give it a go one day! ;D I'm desperate to read Nevernight after reading Illuminae and Gemina - it looks SO GOOD.

    5. Excuse me?! Cait's blog is on Wordpress.org (for so many years now) and she has thousands of followers. Cait and her blog are so well known within the book community. Every person who visits my blog knows Cait. No one has complained of something like this before. I myself am reading her blog right now. The link I've added of her blog in the blog post you are talking about works perfectly fine. A simple google search of 'Paper Fury' shows up her blog. I don't know you but I know Cait very well. I'd appreciate it if you would kindly unfollow me and not visit my blog again. No offense, but this is unacceptable. I just visited her blog and commented along with hundreds of others.

    6. Sorry. I confused an old blog she follows in her Blogger profile "The Book Chewers" for her own. I wasn't wearing my glasses, and I told her of the mix-up I made on her latest blog post on paperfury.com

      Delete
    7. Wished I clicked the Cait's link in your post, and not the old one she followed from her profile. I'll wear my glasses before I access the internet again.

    8. Typo... I followed I mean. I'm gettin' old.

    9. That's cool. I'm glad you are clearing it up with Cait. You take care :)

  10. YAY FOR THE RAVEN BOYS AND THRONE OF GLASS <3 <3 Seriously, can't wait to finish reading TDT with you :)

  12. I'm ashamed to say I haven't read a single one of these... But Flawed by Cecelia Ahern looks super cute, I read one of her books before, called Where the Lost Things Go or something? That book was good c:

    1. Oh unlike Ahern's other novels, Flawed is young adult. It's kind of dystopian and not like any of her other books at all! But yes her writing is gorgeous in all her books ^_^ Thanks for stopping by Amy :)

  13. So glad to see Three Dark Crowns on your list. This is one I still have to read. Also, yay for Sarah J. Maas! She's an author whose books I have yet to discover (though I own nearly all of them). 2017 will *have* to be the year! :)
