Top Ten Tuesday #8 - Top Ten Favourite 2016 Releases So Far This Year

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by Broke and the Bookish 

This week is a 'freebie' week so I thought I would do a TTT from a few weeks ago which I missed. When I first saw the 'Favourite 2016 Releases So Far This Year' topic I couldn't really think of that many of this years releases that I had read, but I got on trusty Goodreads and I have actually read more than ten so here are my favourites:  


 
4.25 STARS
"Generally, I enjoyed this book it took a while to get into the world and grow to like the characters. However, I wasn't blown away but I feel as though the action really picked up in the last hundred pages, so  I am hopeful that the sequels will be better."

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury


4.5 STARS
"This was my first Jessica Khoury book and I loved it, I enjoyed her writing style and the pages just flew by.  It was fast paced and had action from the very first chapter right up to that heart-stopping conclusion."

 4.5 STARS
"I really enjoyed this dark retelling of Jane Eyre, the wicked main character was an entertaining narrator. It took me a while to get use to the style of writing but I had got into the swing of it, I enjoyed the story more and more as I read. This book mixes a survivor of the harrowing issues of the 19th Century England with survivors of the Punjabi battlefields. They both carry scars and secrets which they slowly begin to discover about one another, and it was great to read of the adventures that these discoveries create."

Ruined (#1) by Amy Tintera
Add on Goodreads

5 STARS
"This book is an amazing read, which I flew through and would highly recommend. It was fast paced, full of action with some magic thrown into the mix too. I loved the characters and there interactions and banter made this an greatly entertaining story. We are left with a spectacular ending, which leaves me highly anticipating the sequel."

The Crown's Game (#1) by Evelyn Skye
Add on Goodreads


I love the world or more accurately the alternative Russia in which this book is set. The magic was wonderful to read with such creative results. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
 (Review on the way soon)

  3. Love love loved Jane Steele!! I've heard Truthwitch is amazing and although it's not my typical genre, I am tempted for sure!

    1. I was surprised at how great Jane Steele was! It got me hooked from the first page and I loved Jane as our narrator. Truthwitch had so much hype when it came out that I was hesitant to pick it, it was a good book although I am not sure it was really worth that much hype (but then maybe the hype raised my expectations?!?).

  4. I read The Crown's Game when it first came out and I was a tad disappointed. I also have Rebel is the Sands waiting for me on my kindle and The Forbidden Wish and Truthwitch on my TBR :-) great list

  6. Inferno was so freaking good, so much better than Vendetta! I absolutely can't wait to see what'll everyone be up to in the 3rd book. The Winner's Kiss was amazing, too. A really satisfying sequel that didn't leave behind any loose ends. Loved the character development and how Kestrel and Arin's relationship progressed.
    Wonderful list! :)
