My Favorite Reads of 2016

Hi Everyone!

I have decided to make this post because I thought books I love deserved a bit of attention. You may think it’s too late to make this post, but hey, it’s still January!

Here are books I rated 5 stars when I read them in the year of 2016. The published date may varies, but you can click on the link to read my reviews and learn about the publishing date there. My favorites are in the order of my reading date and these are books I would want to read again in the future!


The Girl on the Train

How to Win Friends & Influence People (Self-Help)

The Hunger Games

Clockwork Prince

The Winner’s Curse

The Winner’s Crime

The Winner’s Kiss

Aristotle and Dante Discovered the Secrets of the Universe

The Gender Game

An Ember in the Ashes


Gilded Cage

Girl Online


A List of Cages

I actually liked Six of Crows too but I didn’t rate it 5 stars. I may read it again. I also love the Lunar Chronicles but I read those in 2015 and many books before blogging. When time permit, I will read them again and review them on here.

Children’s Books:

Tow Truck Pluck

A Warm Winter Tail

The Hungriest Mouth in the Sea

Have you read any of these books and did you rated them 5 stars too?

    You had some awesome reads last year! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve also read (and enjoyed) The Girl on The Train but I think I gave it 4 stars, it didn’t reach my expectations and with people saying only good things about it, I expected a little bit more.
    I’m so excited to start The Lunar Chronicles โค

      Were you able to guess what happened with The Girl on the Train? I couldn’t guess so that’s why I liked it more.. haha.. Read the novella from the Lunar Chronicles too because it’s really good. I liked Fairest. I have yet to read Stars Above.

        I think that I had two theories at the time, and one of them ended up happening, so yeah, I did haha Also, a few weeks after I couldn’t remember a lot of the plot, so I guess it wasn’t very memorable for me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
        They’re both on my birthday wishlist, so there’s a high chance of me getting them soon. I’m not sure if I should marathon everything or add other books between haha I hope you enjoy Stars Above when you get it ^^

    Ohh, it’s great to see How To Win Friends and Influence People on your list, I’m reading it atm actually. Really good so far!
    And it’s also great to see The Winner’s Kiss here too. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Some books I have yet to read, and some I plan to soon, so yeah.
    But all of them look pretty appealing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You definitely read some great books last year! I have yet to read Winter but I’ve heard nothing but goo things about it. And I loved Girl on the Train, too! Humger Games is a wonderful book. I’m so happy you love it, too! And An Ember in the Ashes was definitely one of my favorite reads last year, as well ๐Ÿ™‚ Great list, Jasmine!

    This is an impressive list! The Lunar Chronicles and Aristotle and Dante are some of my favorites, as well! I read Gilded Cage (my review will be posted on release day), but I wasn’t sold on it yet. I look forward to reading the second book. Hunted and A List of Cages are both on my TBR short list– I can’t wait to read them!

      Thanks! I don’t really relate myself to any characters in Gilded Cage but the characters are well developed and I thought it was interesting to read. I also like the plot. Too bad you and alwaysbooking didn’t enjoy the read as much as me. At least you had a good time buddy reading with her though ๐Ÿ˜Š
