TTT: 2016 Faves

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is “Top Ten Favorite 2016 Releases So Far This Year.”

  1. Once Was a Time by Leila Sales
    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
    Absolutely brilliant! Sales’ prose is lovely, the friendships described are beautiful, and time is “like a big ball of wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.”
  2. Starflight by Melissa Landers
    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 1/2
    I was skeptical about this book – YA sci-fi romance could be great, or it could suck. But, I read a review that said this one would scratch the Firefly itch, so I gave it a shot. I’m so glad I did! The story reads like a season of a TV show – rather episodic, with an overarching story, and definitely set up for a sequel. The characters are fun, the romance is a slow burn (so much better than instalove), and the plot, though episodic, is engaging. Now I have to wait a year for the sequel. 😦
  3. Adulthood Is a Myth: A Sarah’s Scribbles Collection by Sarah Andersen
    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
    I’m a bit too old / conservative to be a Millennial, but I could still relate to enough of these cartoons to LOL multiple times.
  4. The Princess in Black and the Hungry Bunny Horde by Shannon and Dean Hale, and LeUyen Pham.
    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
    I bought this as a Valentine’s Day gift for my daughter. She adores the cute purple bunnies!
  5. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro.
    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
    See my review here.
  6. Lady Renegades by Rachel Hawkins.
    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
    Original review in April, 2016: 3 Stars. A bit of a letdown after loving Rebel Belle and Miss Mayhem. Harper and David’s relationship was a highlight of the other books, but they spend the majority of this book apart. Also, I didn’t remember Harper being quite so judgmental. She complained about everything! I missed Amy Rubinate’s fabulous narration as well. Maybe I should’ve waited for the audiobook.

    Audiobook re-read review in June, 2016: My original review holds true, but Amy Rubinate’s narration adds a star!

      Nobody has heard of it, because it’s MG fiction, which is a sadly underrepresented category in the book blogosphere. Sales handles the time travel aspect the same way Doctor Who often does – without really trying to properly explain it. Since the story is more about the characters, I’m perfectly fine with that. 😉
