Here is a few books that stood out as some of the best of the best of 2016.
Freakshow by Jaden Wilkes
An Urban Fantasy standalone about a girl who can't feel pain, running away to join the Freakshow. Beautiful ballsy story with so much heart and something completely different than anything I've ever read. I will NEVER forget these characters.
Soulless (NA Dystopian) by Jacinta Maree
Jacinta has a way of making you fall hopelessly in love with a lost cause. Her world building is incredibly dark and gritty. What if humans were imprinted by every past life, what if every soul we've ever been is trapped in your head, slowly driving you mad? What happens when one girl is born with out any soul imprint? Welcome to Soulless.
The Fall Up by Aly Martinez
Love her style so much but this one is my favourite. So much heart and you will root for these to right down to your toes.
Lev by Belle Aurora
Truly unique story that I completely fell in love with. I will re read this one, a lot.
King & Tyrant by TM Frazier
Loved both of these so much. King & Doe & Preppy & Bear, all brilliant characters I will never forget. It's dark & sweet, TM Frazier specialty.
Gypsy Brothers Series by Lili St. Germain
Never Never Serial by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher
You will go crazy getting swept up into this race against time. But warning each one is a hell of a cliffhanger and the third book isn't live... Yet.
Love Hate Relationship by Jessica Prince
A standalone in a companion series. It's by fave because of the sassy arguing, but honestly the whole Colors Series is full of feels, laughs and beautiful characters.
Fragile Fall by Kristy Love
The whole series (companion) is amazing but this one broke me. Huge ugly cry.
Outside the box...
The Garden: Gildemer by AS Oren
YA Fantasy story about a Cat/Human hybrid girl's life as a servant to royalty in a world where servants are forbidden to learn to read. Sound bizarre? I thought so too but ten pages in and I was hooked.
Hope you all read some amazing books, I'm excited to see what 2016 will bring!
