Top Ten Five Star Reads of 2016 (Top Ten Tuesday #5)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

Today, we're doing my Top Ten Five Star Rates of 2016! AAAAH! 2016 has been such a good year in terms of reading for me. I've read 37 BOOKS! *Freaks Out*

Also, this Friday is MY SECOND BLOGAVERSARY! I'm so excited for it and also for all the amazing authors that are coming here over the month of April. Now. 

My Top Ten. Before we go ahead, I am warning you, the words 'brilliant' and "It was SO AAAAH" will be used in excess for the ten books after this. Consider yourself warned!

1. Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate: This book was SO great (I mean, obviously, I did give it a five star rating) and while for a bit the seven points of view was a bit too much, it got SO good after I started remembering how everyone was.

2. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard: This. Book. Was. So. SO. SO. GOOD. It ruined me, and it gave me my worst hangover of 2016. GIVE ME BOOK THREE.

3. The Girl Who Fell by Shannon Parker: THIS BOOK HAD ME BELIEVING IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP. I mean it. It was so good, and it had a bout of best friend romance which was SO GOOD. You guys should 10000% read this. (It might kill you, but...)

4. Asking For It by Louise O'Neill: This was the height of emotional torture. It was so real, and so so brutal. It broke my heart, I swear. And yours will probably shatter too.

5. Rebel Of The Sands by Alwyn Hamilton: THIS WAS ABOUT FEMINISM AND MAGIC AND REBELLION and it is an Arabian Nights meets the Wild West with badass women and chemistry. HIGHLY recommended. ALSO THAT COVER. SAVE ME. And give me book two!

6. Only Ever Yours by Louise O'Neill: ANOTHER LOUISE O'NEILL, you might ask? Well, yes, because she is one of the MOST BRILLIANT writers I've ever read and everything is so real, and so scary and extremely breath taking. YOU NEED TO READ HER BOOKS.

7. The Year We Fell Apart by Emily Martin: A BEST FRIEND

8. This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp: This was SO adrenaline filled, and dreadful and beautifully written. I sat on the edge of my seat for a few hours straight reading about these fifty four minutes with so many deaths and so many truths.

9. A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Caravallo: THIS IS A STORY ABOUT SHERLOCK AND WATSON'S GREAT GREAT TEENAGE GRAND KIDS. Does is even get better? It was SO good. Well, after you get over the fact that Charlotte is a carbon copy of Sherlock, you will be left fangirling.

10. Dumplin' by Julie Murphy: FAT GIRL NOVELS. YAY! I love novels that tackle issues head on, especially body image, and while this one varied on being open about what you look like and a bit of fat shaming, I still loved it.
