Wow, what a year. What an amazing year in books. We finally received some very long anticipated books, we got new installments of our favorite series, and we stumbled across some previously unheard of authors who blew us away. Some made us laugh, some made us cry, some took us by surprise because they were not what we originally thought they were going to be. Some of them absolutely broke our heart, and one completely devastated us as we said goodbye to a cast of beloved characters. There was no possible way to narrow our list down to just 10 books, and making it 23 was still a struggle. So in no particular order here are our top reads for 2016.
