2016 Year in Review

Recently I published a post about my favorite reads of 2016, so I thought I would also share all the books I have read this year. You may notice that just because I gave something 5 stars doesn’t mean it was in my favorites list. It was hard to choose so few books, but I loved all the 4 and 5 star books I read. Below you will find a list of all the books I read, which ones I reviewed, and which ones I managed not to finish. My first ever DNF happened this year–3 times actually!  Books are listed using my new rating system which I started part way through this year.

DNF

Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

I think this book was over-hyped. I just couldn’t get into it and it didn’t live up to its expectations. I did manage to read half of the book before stopping. It just wasn’t for me.

The Dragon’s Path by Daniel Abraham

I didn’t get too far into this one and I started it just after I was in a reading slump.The reading slump probably had something to do with me not finishing this one. I also couldn’t get into it and found it to be confusing. However, I think I will try reading this one again in 2017.

Half Bad by Sally Green

I was just a few pages away from finishing this one but marked it as DNF because I just couldn’t read it anymore. It wasn’t interesting enough for me to want to continue with the series so I just gave up on this one.
