The Best and Worst of 2016

Best and Worst

2016 was definitely the year of the great reading slump. I had such a great pace going until WHAM…very dismal results in terms of books I finished at the end of this year. But I’m also going to give myself a pat on the back for the challenging books I did manage to read this year which undoubtedly did put me back a bit with the pacing of my Goodreads challenge. Interestingly enough I have a very vague memory of what I actually read this year (probably another symptom of the dreaded reading slump), but a glance on this blog or on my Goodreads page revealed that I read quite a few fantastic books this year. Among those were War and Peace, the book that inspired the film Spotlight, and Me Before You to name a few. But what matters most is….what was the best and worst book I read and reviewed in 2016?



Having read both A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury in 2016, how on earth does one choose between these two books to pick best book of 2016? However, I am still in awe and have yet to come across a book that was able to make me completely switch allegiance from one of my favorite characters to another and this book did just that. I can say without a doubt that I cannot wait to read the next installment in the series solely from what is in this book and I can feel my anticipation return even as I write this post. If you have missed checking out this series, don’t make that same mistake in 2017.

I have loved this author’s other work and the premise and cover seemed extremely promising. What I got was an awfully silly, juvenile love story that couldn’t finish itself fast enough. I’m still in shock of how bad it was considering it had everything going for it: romance, royalty, a quirky storyline. Take my advice and try the author’s vampire or mermaid series but steer clear of this dud.
