My Top Rated Books of 2016

| |

I’ve always been a reader. Even on my busiest days I can’t fall asleep unless I’ve read a few pages at night. My topics are a huge mix, but as my hubby just pointed out I do read a lot of YA Fantasy. I also really like Historical Fiction. I use Goodreads to keep track of what I read and check out ratings of a book to decide what I want to read next. I was curious today so I checked out my Top Rated Books of 2016 and decided to share them with you. I always read suggestions from my friends first!

Feel free to follow me on Goodreads here – and let me know you did below so I can be sure to follow back.

These links are for Amazon, but I recommend looking at Goodreads ratings too because I think they are way better, which is why I like having Friends there. Understand that I almost never give a book 5 stars. It has to really hold my constant attention and I have to say Wow when I finish.
