  1. Great list Christina! The Start of Me and You made my list too. I love Emery Lord's books! Saint Anything almost made my list. I should have put it down as an honorable mention.

    I loved The Nightingale and I'm glad you did too. That is my favorite book of the year. The Royal We also made my list. Such a fun book :)

    Cinder is fantastic and so is the rest of the series (Winter made my list this year). I also loved The Invention of Wings. Such a fascinating story!

  12. Ooh great list! and quite a few I would like to read. I might just have to read the Poldark novels so I can imagine Aiden Turner without his top on... or anything else for that matter!

    1. haha. You have me laughing out loud. I did enjoy reading Ross Poldark as I was watching the TV show...I hope to read the second book from the series sometime in 2016. I am a fan of Aiden Turner as well. :) Thanks for visiting! :)

  13. I also loved a lot of these books - especially the contemps! Out of the contemps you've picked my favourite was Saint Anything! I read a lot of great thrillers this year, and if you loved The Girl on the Train then I highly recommend I Let You Go and The Kind Worth Killing. Both great thrillers with great twists!

    1. I will have to check those out. I have been getting more and more into psychological thrillers...I have definitely been reading more each year. Thanks for the recommendations, Leanna!

  14. Did you watch the "Poldark" series on PBS? I loved it! I didn't even realize it was based on a book series until I'd watched a few episodes. I'm glad to see you liked the first book -- maybe I'll look into it! As for the rest of your picks, "The Girl on the Train" made my list too. And I still need to read "The Nightingale" and "The Luckiest Girl Alive." One of these days!
