If you were around for any part of 2016, you might have noticed an influx of book related posts here at Falon Loves Life, mainly due to the fact that as Squirt gets older, and now that I am working from home, I actually have more time to read. Which is awesome because reading has been a passion of mine for like thirty years (not even exaggerating there, which is a little scary…I’m old). I did an okay job completing my 2016 Reading List, though I didn’t finish all the books on the list. But that’s okay because I read about a hundred others. This year, I need to get through the fifty books I bought last year but haven’t read yet (only a slight exaggeration). I would like to say I’m not going to buy any new books until I finish the ones I have, but that would be a big fat lie. I’m sure I will veer from this list, but these are the books I hope to read in 2016:
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: I polished off the entire Throne of Glass series last year, and despite some slow moments, I really enjoyed all five books (so far, there is still at least one more to come in that series). I have heard that ACOTAR is even better so I am excited to start this one.
Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin: Okay okay, so this one was on my list last year, as was Game of Thrones. I finished GoT and managed to get about halfway through CoK, but I gotta buckle down and finish.
Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven: I LOVED All the Bright Places and I have heard great things about Niven’s latest release. Hopefully it’s not quite as emotionally devastating as her first book, but I’m pretty sure it is.
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty: This book is going to see an upsurge in popularity due to the HBO limited series coming out this February, starring some kickass ladies like Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Laura Dern.
It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover: I own this book already, and yet have legitimately no idea what it is actually about. But it was all over bookstagram last year, so it’s probably good!
You are a Badass by Jen Sincero: This is another one that really made a splash on the blog/book community scene that last year. It’s been sitting on my shelf for a while now, I just need to find the time to read it!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han: When it comes to YA fiction, I am not typically drawn toward romance, but this series seems to be pretty popular, and not going to lie, I love the cover.
Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon: I just finished Nicola’s other book, The Sun is Also a Star, and I freaking loved it so much. Probably the best characters I’ve read in a love story in a long time. Looking forward to reading her other work!
Yes Please by Amy Poehler: I picked this one up a couple of weeks ago because it was on clearance at my local bookstore, and I’m excited to read it. Amy is hilarious and I have heard great things about the book.
These are just ten of the many books I plan to read in 2017. With the exception of Everything, Everything and Holding Up the Universe, I already own copies of all the books on my list, so there are no excuses! Time to brew some coffee and get to reading! What are you looking forward to reading in 2017?
