Hello! Today is the 2nd day of the month long #AMonthOfFaves2016 event! Tanya at GirlXOXO and Andi from Estella’s Revenge and I really enjoyed reading your posts about a few favorite things (here is my post about My Fave Things ICYMI!)
Fri. | Dec. 2 – 5 Popular Books Worth the Hype #AMonthofFaves2016
For this prompt, I headed over to Goodreads to check out my 2016 shelf. Any guesses at what books I think were worth the hype in 2016?
When Allison Winn Scotch spoke so highly about this book for her #30Authors post at Traveling With T, I immediately went to the library and requested this book. It was incredible. The twists. The turns. This thriller should be put on your TBR list immediately.
Katie at Doing Dewey put this book on my radar. Then it was a Deep South Magazine Summer Read. Set in North Carolina, with an interesting way to tell the story (from Day 15 to Day 1), Megan Miranda knew how to tease the reader. I still highly recommend this book.
Kate Moretti’s The Vanishing Year was very hyped. Months before this book came out, there were blurbs from great authos and bloggers were a-buzz. The buzz was real folks. It’s worth dropping everything you are doing now and getting sucked into Zoe’s world.
In the ARC of One True Loves, one of the publisher blurbs was about how TJR would break your heart and then mend it back together. It’s totally true. This book was highly buzzed about pre-pub and after pub because it was a Book Sparks Summer Reading Challenge. TJR elevates the genre of women’s fiction to a whole other level.
My first JT Ellison book. Nashville setting. A mystery. LOVED.
Mary Kubica never fails to thrill me. Don’t You Cry is no exception.
So, there is 6 books that I think were worth the hype… And now for 1 that wasn’t:
It was incredibly hyped and it was just not a great book for me. Maybe it was too hyped?
*What books did you think were fantastic this year?*
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
