Favorite Books & Series [2016 edition]

Banner_favorite books and series

It was so incredibly hard to choose but I’ve finally come up with this year’s updated list of my favorite book series and stand-alones (as of 2016). There are so many amazing books that I’ve read so it was incredibly hard to narrow some of the categories down to just one series or book. Some were easy long time faves, but others…it was a challenge to choose!

NON-FICTION

[TBD – I haven’t really read enough non-fiction to choose a favorite so one of my goals for 2017 is to read more within this genre. I already have a few on my list!]

I posted a Top Ten list last year for 2015 and this is my list for 2016 so it will be interesting to see what my list for 2017 will hold! With new books coming out left and right, with life changing me as I grow and age, it’s interesting to see what books define us and hold a place special in our hearts.

Let me know some of your own favorite books or series!

Cheers.
