Must Reads of 2016

As I looked back at 2015, I knew that I didn't have the best reading year. There were lots of things that got in the way of my reading during the second half of the year. I am determined not to let it happen this year. Pictured below are my Must Reads of 2016. A few are not brand new books, but ones that have been on my to read list for a while. I can't wait to see what books others consider Must Reads of 2016. I know I will be adding more to my list as I read other posts!

I've added a few others to my Must Read list since I made the graphic above.

*Penguin's Christmas Wish by Salina Yoon
*It's Not Time For Sleeping by Salina Yoon
*Firelight (Amulet #7) by Kazu Kibuishi
*Horrible Bear by Ame Dyckman and Zachariah OHora

Also if you know of any great nonfiction I should be reading, let me know. Nonfiction is my book gap. I usually enjoy the books that I end up reading, but I don't actively seek nonfiction books to read.

Happy Reading!!

  1. This is a super great list! I think the only one I've read is The War That Saved My Life (which is excellent) but just about all of the others are on my to-read list. Can't wait to read your thoughts throughout 2016!

  2. It looks like you have some mighty fine reading ahead of you. I am also looking forward to reading Booked and Pax. The War That Saved my Life was one of the best books I read last year. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  3. I see some of my favorite books on your list - The War That Saved My Life, Hilo, and The Marvels. Have a great year!

  4. Oh my gosh... you have so many of my books on your list! I love it!! Thank you. And I just read your review on Goodreads! So happy you loved BE A FRIEND! Maybe you caught this, but if you haven't, you might find it interesting: https://nerdybookclub.wordpress.com/2016/01/05/what-it-means-to-be-a-friend-by-salina-yoon/ Thanks, again! —Salina Yoon

  5. So, so honored by this amazing company, Stacey -- and thank you for the shout-out!

  6. The Truth about Twinkie Pie is really a great title. And The War I've Saved MyLife like all are saying is absolutely excellent!
