Best of 2016 and what to come in 2017

2016 was a busy year for us. J got a promotion and hasn't been doing much with the blog. His work keeps him super busy so for now it's up to me to handle things. I know I can't read enough to put up a book every day of the year. So I fill the space with book blitzes and cover reveals. I know it's not everyones cup of tea but it keeps the blog moving and I can read when I can!!

Our move brought us closer to family, they're around a lot so while J works hard I spend more time with family then I did before. I have a bit less free time. I can't complain, its not a bad thing but it does cramp my reading and blogging time.  Aaannnyywayyyy.... Here's my favorite books for the last year and some of the books I'm looking forward to in the coming year. I don't have many listed on my 2017 list so if there is something coming that you might think I'll like let me know!! I love to have new things to read and am always looking for recommendations.

BEST OF 2016

Note that these are in NO certain order. I'm not playing favorites AT ALL.  Also I do group my favorites if they're a series. I won't list them all separately. That could take forever! 

1. Bright Side and Gus by Kim Holden


These books are AMAZING. I mean I read them in a matter of 3 maybe 4 days.  There are tears that happen but it's all so so worth it. Bright Side will break you but Gus puts you back together. Now we get to read Franco's story! It just came out so I've not gotten to read it yet but it's going to be fantastic!! The review's for both of these stories are here and here

2. The Score and The Goal by Elle Kennedy


Hot hockey boys and the girls that love them.  These books are really good!! The reviews will be here and here

3. The Rousseau's by Katy Regnery


I love this author's work. She can weave a tail like no other. The reviews for these books are here, here and here.

4.  Bad Boy Billionaires by Max Monroe

This series was hilarious and smutty and just plain awesome.  There are novella's that go with every book. Reviews for the three main books can be found here, here and here

5. Ginger's Heart by Katy Regnery

Like I said before I love this authors work.  This book is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and it's so so good. Check out my review here

6.  Ride Hard by Laura Kaye 

This is a sort of spin off from the Hard Ink series that is by the same author. This is about the club president of a motorcycle gang. He's hot and soft, but hard and doesn't take shit. LOVED it.  Read my review here

7.  Sugar and Ice by Aven Ellis

I discovered this authors work a couple of years ago and I've been hooked since. This is her latest and I read it just before the end of 2016 and I loved the two characters so much. Read my review here.

8. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I know this isn't a book from 2016 but I read this one this year on the way to BEA in Chicago. Actually we listened to it. I LOVED this book. I loved the series but this book was the best of the 4 for me. Read my review here!

I really could go on and on. I love reading. It makes my life so much happier. Have you read any of these books?

What are you looking forward to in 2017? I only have a couple that I know of coming out this year. 

Ride Rough by Laura Kaye

Lucky in Love by Kacie West 

Giving it All by Christi Barth 

If Not for You by Debbie Macomber

Let me know if you're looking forward to the same things or others! I have so many books on my to be read list but I'm always adding more. It's a list I don't think will ever end. I hope each of you has a fantastic year. I hope you find lots of awesome books to read!!
