The End of Year Book Survey is created by Jamie over at Perpetual Page Turner, and is a way to sum up your year in books with some questions! I absolutely love this idea, and when I saw it, I knew I just had to do it too! So here is my end of year book survey!
Number Of Books You Read: 74
Number of Re-Reads: 9
Genre You Read The Most From: Young Adult
1. Best Book You Read In 2016?
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas! Read my full review of it here! However a close second is definitely Nevernight by Jay Kristoff, which you can read my review of here!
2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?
Nerve by Jeanne Ryan! I was so excited for this but I just didn’t get along with it at all. It wasn’t a bad book, but it wasn’t my cup of tea!
3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater! I didn’t know what to expect from this, but after reading the synopsis I wasn’t really expecting too much. However then I read it and I was amazed at how good it was! It completely blew me away, and I went and bought the next books as soon as I’d finished because I was in awe of how amazing it was! Check out my full review here!
4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. I loved this book and I told my friend to read it, and luckily she did! She also loved it too so that was a bonus!
5. Best series you started in 2016? Best Sequel of 2016? Best Series Ender of 2016?
Best Series – Definitely The Infernal Devices. I just love them so much!
Best Sequel – I could say ACOMAF, but I’m going to mix it up and say Starr Lost by Kim Briggs! She’s an amazing author and this book was everything!
Best Series Ender – Winter by Marissa Meyer! I LOVED this book so much, it was everything I’ve ever wanted in a finale book, and I just wanted to reread it instantly!
6. Favourite new author you discovered in 2016?
Joe Hill! I read NOS4R2 earlier last year and as soon as I finished it I went and bought basically all his other books because I was hooked!
7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?
The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace. I never read poetry, it’s never really been my thing, but this book was absolutely gorgeous! I loved every poem and ended up saving a couple to look at later!
