You know, I really thought I hadn’t been reading a ton of new books so far this year, but I came up with ten favorites no problem.

Peas and Carrots was SO CLOSE to making my list. If it had been 11 reads, it would have been there.

I’m really looking forward to reading Scarlet Epstein Hates It Here.

Obviously I haven’t read any of these. I haven’t read any 2016 release at all.I bought some but they are still in my bookshelves.
I love the cover of Masks and Shadows.

Yeah, Masks and Shadows has a great cover! It really fits the atmosphere of the book too.

I think the three of these that I read also made my best of list – and I think I want to read every other book on this list. Keeper of the Mist is on my shelf at home waiting for its turn!
