Best 2016 reads: January – June

We’re 7 months far now in 2016 so I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of books I absolutely adored and highly recommend so far.

The Hundred lies of Lizzie Lovett ★★★★

25546710This book isn’t published just yet (will be on January 3rd 2017) but it’s such an amazing story!! So touching and beautifully written.

A teenage misfit named Hawthorn Creely inserts herself in the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett, who disappeared mysteriously while camping with her boyfriend. Hawthorn doesn’t mean to interfere, but she has a pretty crazy theory about what happened to Lizzie. In order to prove it, she decides to immerse herself in Lizzie’s life. That includes taking her job… and her boyfriend. It’s a huge risk — but it’s just what Hawthorn needs to find her own place in the world.                         click for review

Maybe Someday ★★★★★

24445517This is actually my absolute favourite. I cried and laughed so so much and it’s just an absolute roller coaster of emotions. Colleen Hoover never disappoints.

Sydney is living in an idyllic bubble—she’s a dedicated student with a steady job on the side. She lives with her best friend, has a great boyfriend, and the music coming from the balcony opposite hers is fast becoming the soundtrack to her life. But when Sydney finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her, the bubble bursts. The mysterious and attractive man behind the music, Ridge, gives Sydney hope that she can move on and they begin to write songs together. But moving on is harder than she expects, Sydney can only hope…. Click for review

Everything, Everything ★★★★

18692431The ending was a bit disappointing but the story overall was absolutely gorgeous, this is really a must read.

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla. But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly. Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.                               Click for review
