Happy almost 2016! We’re at that time of year again where I get to tell you what books I loved this year. And I certainly read a lot of them. Goodreads tells me that, to date, I’ve read 193 books this year. That number does not include the ones that I forgot to mark (obviously) or the ones that haven’t come out yet.
That being said, narrowing down a manageable list of favorites was near impossible—again—this year. However, Jay said I absolutely could not present you with forty books (because really I had originally narrowed it down to a mere forty) so here are my twenty (three because I added cover art) favorites, by category (including this year’s Time Travel Week favorite), in no particular order, because really, that would have taken me decades.
- The High King’s Golden Tongue by Megan Derr
- Trust the Focus by Megan Erickson
- With This Bling by LB Gregg
- Fish Stick Fridays by Rhys Ford
- Unbreak Broken by JK Hogan
- Fit to be Tied by Mary Calmes

YAY! Great list! I LOVED seeing “With This Bling” on a favorites list! I love Ce & Dan so much! 🙂
Ce and Dan stole my heart so long ago… so glad they still have it 🙂
I’m glad to see With This Bling on the list. I’ve read it twice and it was even better the second time. Now I’m patiently waiting for the next one. 🙂 I’ve read Trust The Focus but haven’t read The High Kings Golden Tongue, so that might be my next purchase. 🙂
Barbra, High King is a must.
Wow, thank you so much! I really appreciate The Bacchi getting some love. 🙂 XOXO
Belinda, all of the Uncommon Whore series (and obviously the spinoff) are fabulous. I’m looking forward to more.
