Top Reads 2016 - Standalone
In case you haven't figured it out yet, 2016 was an EPIC year for books. Both in the indie world and the traditional world. As a reader (and blogger) we had so many phenomenal options from a multitude of places. Beth, Lana and I attempted to narrow down our choices for a Top 10 list or something similar and that didn't happen because we loved so many books this year. So we've broken our lists up into categories and we will post them in individual posts. Which means more book love for everyone!!
I believe books come to us when we need them. This year I'm so thankful for the books that came to me during the year when I needed them most. The year was up and down and all around for me, but one thing is true, the words that these authors shared with me (and Lana and Beth) touched us each in such a way that they became our Top Reads of 2016 for a reason!
Endurance - Georgia Cates --- Lana says: Endurance has a super sexy cover and you finally get the questions answered about Jaime and Ellison's love story.
F*ck Love - Tarryn Fisher --- This was my first read of 2016 and still one I think about almost a whole year later. I don't know what to say except this book gave me ALL.THE.FEELS! It touched me in a place I didn't think could be touched. My soul.
It Ends With Us - Colleen Hoover --- Don't read the spoilers. Just breath through and accept it for what it is. Because what it is, is an all consuming, life changing, hope filled, story of life.
Stoned- Mandi Beck --- Stoned is a heart throb, second chance rocker story. Beth says it's H.O.T!!!!
Sweet Cheeks - K. Bromberg --- K. Bromberg is the kind of writer who can make you cry and snort with laughter in the same chapter. Her characters are like best friends you don't want to share with others because they're so perfect, but yet you can't stop talking about them so everyone else wants them too!
The Empty Jar - M Leighton --- Tissues. Before you attempt this make sure your box of tissues is fresh and your ice cream supply is full. You'll love me because your heart will be full just like your belly!
Torrid Affair - Callie Anderson --- I am so in love with the ay Callie Anderson tells a story. Her words pierce my heart and soul. They make me think, feel and breathe differently. They make me realize I want. I love having Lana to talk too about books, and especially this one!
Unseen Messages - Pepper Winters --- Do you believe that there are messages al around you? Do you believe that there is hope in this life? Do you believe that things happen for a reason? No matter the answer, open your mind to the story that could change you.
Written in the Scars- Adriana Locke--- Written in the Scars totally wrecked Beth. But yet, she was on the edge of her seat the whole time she was reading and couldn't put it down.
