Top 10 of 2016

Once again, it’s time to participate in Two Chicks On Books, Fiktshun, Tales of a Ravenous Reader, and Dark Faerie Tales‘ annual TOP 10 OF 2016 week long meme.

If you know me at all, you know that I’m a sucker for a Bad Boy, so this post has become the one I’m most looking forward to. Bwa-ha-ha.

*Click on book cover to visit Amazon / GoodReads for more info.

10. Spells of Blood and Kin by Claire Humphrey

Does a man suffering from a (self-inflicted) curse of unquenchable bloodlust count as a Bad Boy? I think so . . .
09. One Salt Sea (October Daye #5) by Seanan McGuire

One word: TYBALT. *swoons* *flails*
08. Morning Star (Red Rising #3) by Pierce Brown

Some of you may disagree about Darrow being a Bad Boy, and to you I say: upstart slave infiltrates the corrupt leadership, guts it, burns it down, and dances in the ashes . . . How is that not a Bad Boy?
07. The Glittering Court (The Glittering Court #1) by Richelle Mead

Ariel-the-pirate is not a Bad Boy, she’s a Bad Girl, but I’m including her, b/c she’s awesome, and a pirate (a statement that is redundant in any circles I’m interested in running with).
06. Saga, Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples

Duuuuuuuude. Marko, the rebel sorcerer with rams horns is so effing hot that I wish I was an alien too. For REAL.
05. A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) by V.E. Schwab

Once again, I feel it would be more appropriate to list a certain pirate, *coughs* I mean privateer, who is FEMALE, but instead I’m going with a secondary character by the name of Alucard Emery, whose confident mastery of our favorite prince left me covered in gooseflesh. *stares dreamily into space*
04. City of the Lost (Casey Duncan #1) by Kelley Armstrong

Eric Dalton . . . Hoo boy. The barely civilized Sheriff of Rockton can lure me out into the snowy Canadian tundra any time he likes.
03. Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff

He might have played a small role, but I was more-than-intrigued by Cassius, leader of NEVERNIGHT’s assassin school. His shadow wolf might’ve also had something to do with it . . .
02. Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo

Okay, so technically I haven’t read CROOKED KINGDOM yet, BUT . . . that’s only b/c I’m saving it for this year’s holiday travels, which will transpire before the end of 2016, making Kaz a legit addition to my Bad Boys list.

My love of Kaz is DEEP:

01. A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas

There was a lot of controversy surrounding this book. A LOT. So much that my book bff still hasn’t read it. But I don’t care what the haters say, ACOMAF was EPIC. Probably my top read of the year. And a huge part of that is b/c RHYSAND, who is the clear winner of Best Bad Boy of 2016 title, as far as I’m concerned.

Who were your favorite Bad Boys of 2016?

Jessica Signature

My name is Jessica and I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’m trying my hand at writing, but mostly I read. My favorite genres are Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and the YA versions of those genres, but if there is a book of a different color getting lots of buzz, I’ll read it too, just to be informed. If I’m not reading or writing, I’m probably on Goodreads or Pinterest or baking blueberry pies because I love them.
