Happy New Year’s Eve everybody! With the end of 2016 comes a new year, new beginnings, a new chance to tackle those new year’s resolutions, and my quarterly wrap up!
I think I did pretty decently with the amount of books I read considering how tough school life has been on me. 😦
Anyways, without further delay, here is my final wrap up list of 2016!
1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by John Tiffany
Many readers have issues with this book, but I quite enjoyed it. There are lots of qualms with how some of the characters are portrayed; how they grew up to be nothing like how they were, but I think that’s a part of character development. I’m not particularly happy with how some of the characters turned out, but considering what the golden trio went through as children, you can’t expect them to stay shining forever.
2. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
This was an interesting read but filled with plot holes (ha ha). The characters were decent though, and I’d definitely still read from this author. Read my review here.
3. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
My first venture into Kasie West books. While I wasn’t terribly impressed, I can’t argue that it wasn’t a good love story. 🙂 Read my review here.
4. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West
Another good, yet could be better book by Kasie West.
5. Saint Anything Sarah Dessen
Dessen is another first time author for me, and I’m not disappointed. This was a super cute book, though lots of people say that this is not one of her best works. I’ll be on the look out for more books from this author.
6. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
I can’t recommend this book enough! It’s written well with interesting characters and a fun plot. Read my review here.
7. P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han
I was totally in the mood for romance, if you can tell. This is the sequel to one of my favourite books I read this year. 🙂
8. ReLIFE Volumes 1-5 by Sou Yayoi
This is a funny and quirky manga series about a grown man receiving the chance to relive high school; the time of great self-discovery.
9. The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
I never realize how much I miss the Shadowhunter-verse until I jump back into the world. Magnus is one of my favourite characters, and getting to see so much of what he has endured throughout his many years of life was an experience indeed.
10. Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare
Only a couple of stories left before I finish this off. It was super fun following Simon training to be a Shadowhunter, and learning more about the history of their world.
It’s been fun, 2016, but that’s a wrap. I wish you all a happy new year! 💖
