Hello readers! Today’s blog is going to be a list of some of my favorite books I read in 2016! The books that I list are in no particular order…I liked all of them just about equally, but OH MY GOSH, THE TRIAL BY FIRE SERIES BY JOSEPHINE ANGELINI IS GOLD!!! Read it, read it now.

She Is Mine by Stephanie Fast

Publisher Synopsis

Her father was an American serviceman, her mother a young Korean woman confused by the ravages of war. Abandoned at age four, nameless, homeless, and utterly alone, this child of destiny roamed the bleak, war-ravaged countryside of South Korea for three years and was finally left for dead. But God had other plans.

Mistletoe Between Friends/The Snowflake Inn by Samantha Chase

Two gorgeous stories about the most romantic time of the year…

United by Melissa Landers

Publisher Synopsis

After thwarting a deadly coup and saving the alliance between their worlds, Cara and Aelyx have finally earned a break. Their tiny island colony is everything they dreamed it would be―days spent gathering shells on the beach and nights in each other’s arms.
But the vacation is short-lived.
The treaty between Earth and L’eihr has awakened an ancient force that threatens to destroy them all. The Aribol, mysterious guardians charged with maintaining interstellar peace, deem the alliance a threat to the galaxy. They order a separation of the races, decreeing humans and L’eihrs must return to their own planets within the month or face extinction. In fact, they already have agents in place on Earth, ready to begin.

Reading Challenge 2017 Update

This is just going to be a quick post about my current reading challenge for 2017 (the challenge is through Goodreads). My goal for the year is 30 books, which is a super small goal for me, but because of full time classes and planning a wedding for June, I made my goal small for now! I am currently 30% in to the challenge, that’s 9 books since the beginning of the year! I really like my reading spread so far. There have been some I loved and some I hated. I am just going to put the titles and authors, with a book picture, in a numbered order; one being the first book I read this year and nine being the most recent book I finished. If you have read any of the books listed, or are currently reading any of the books listed, comment down below and let me know your thoughts and feelings on them!

Happy Reading!
