Mid Year Favorites of 2016

Hello all! Since it’s June I thought of doing a mid year favorites of 2016. Just sharing some books that I have shelved in my “Favorites, Forever Loved, Will Always Gush Over, Is This Book Even Real? Ugh My Heart!”




Six of Crows By Leigh Bardugo. I was reallyΒ hesitant about picking this book up because I had just finished The Grisha Trilogy and didn’t really enjoy it. I wasn’t hyped up at all to pick this book up but when I started reading it and immersed in the world, HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!!! I fell in love with it and couldn’t put it down. All the characters are amazing and lovely. I even want to get tattooed “No Mourners. No Funerals.”
If you like Fantasy, Heist, Magic, Dark Corrupted Worlds, then pick this up!

I was in the mood for a New Adult so I decided to pick up Burying Water since I had received it as a gift from Ilse. And OMG this is not your typical New Adult. It’s character driven and has its own unique story. Yes of course it has romance. All 4 books deal with a romance but it’s so much more than that. The series is a companion series and I actually liked it way more than Tucker’s Ten Tiny Breath Series.
If you like New Adult, Kick Ass Females, Heartwrenching Stories, then pick this up!


Illuminae!!! I initially wasn’t going to pick this up because it had so much hype on Booktube, I thought I wasn’t going to like it. But one Booktuber definitely convinced me to pick up because of the way she had described it. I had first gotten it from the library (the book in the photo was gifted to me after) because I didn’t want to buy it in fear of disliking it. I was so wrong! This story is told by manuscripts, emails, files, etc. and I have to say that it took me a little while to figure it out but I devoured this book!! I can’t wait for Gemina.
If you like SciFi, Corruption, The Walking Dead, then pick this up.



And finally!!!!! A Court of Mist and Fury. When I heard that this book was going to be a Hades and Persephone retelling I was like YAAAAASSSSS GIVE ME IT!! The first book wasn’t my favorite but this book just takes all the cake and glory! I am Feysand TRASH! Feyre and Rhys are my babies. My ultimate OTP of all freaking time. I have definitely reread some chapters of this book and don’t care if people judge me!
Since this book is a series, you would have to read A Court of Thorns and Roses first. But if you like Fantasy, Beauty and The Beast, Hades and Persephone, New Adult, and Fairies then read it.

  1. I have yet to read Six of Crows, although a few people have recommended me The Grisha trilogy, I don’t think I’m going to pick it up but I’m definitely interested in reading Six of Crows. And the NA series by K.A. Tucker is also in my tbr, I’m glad you liked it, now I’ll definitely give it a go! Aaaand I finally got Illuminae today!! After waiting for 7 months! πŸ˜€ I’m so excited to read it!

      • I want to finish ACOMAF first, I’m halfway through it, hopefully I’ll finish it within this week. Then I need to complete The Mortal Instruments series, one thing or the other comes up every time I get on with this series, so I’m gonna finish book 5 and 6 and then finally start Illuminae! πŸ˜€ Hopefully, it’s worth the wait!

  2. Six Of crows and Illuminae are my favorite books too! I’m currently reading ACOMAF and halfway finished with it. I used to root for tamlin but now I think Rhysand is the perfect guy for feyre. The chemistry between them is so hot!!! They are perfect for each other!!! I’m quite excited to read the rest of the story and very much anticipating for Tamlin’s re-entrance. πŸ˜€
