Genre You Read The Most From:


1. Best Book You Read In 2016?

The Martian by Andy Weir.

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?

Carry on by Rainbow Rowell.

 3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?  

The girl from everywhere by Heidi Heilig. This book really suprised me in a good way.

 4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?

I never "push" people to read something. Because most people I know in real life don't read much. But perhaps the book I talk on the internet about the most and said people should read was The girl from everywhere by Heidi Heilig.

 5. Best series you started in 2016? Best Sequel of 2016? Best Series Ender of 2016?

Best series I started has to be The raven boys by Maggie Stiefvater. My Raven boys <3 Best sequel of last year has to be The Dream thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. I love this world so much. Looking forward to read the rest of the series in 2017. The best series ender must be Isla and the happily ever after by Stephenie Perkins. If you can call it a series. I really loved the last piece, where all the characters from the three different books came together.

 6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2016?

 Heidi Heilig. I love her so much.

7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?

The Martian by Andy Weir. I don't read much Science Fiction.  

 8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year?

The Outsiders by S. E Hinton.  

 9. Book You Read In 2016 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year?

I almost never re-read books beside Harry Potter by J. K Rowling. Perhaps Bloom: navigating life and style by Estee Lalonde. I love her youtube channel and her book was fantastic written. I can really see my self re-read it in the future and perhaps in 2017. 

10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2016?

 The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere, #1)

11. Most memorable character of 2016?

 It's very hard to choose only one. I love so many memorable characters. The strange thing is that they all are boys. Yes I feel in love with boys in books all the time. I'm that girl. But they are all described so beautifully that I can not help it. Why are all these good and amazing boys only fiction? If I have to choose only one... Why is this so hard? Ronan Lynch from The raven cycle by Maggie Stiefvater.

I love Ronan so much.
