Year-End 2016 Young Adult Favorite Reads + Giveaway


Welcome to my very late Year-End 2016 Favorites!!

My year end favorite reads are books I've read in 2016 for the first time (and not necessarily all reviewed here - eek! or reviewed in 2016 - a few were posted in January 2017).  They are also not all published in 2016, but majority am. 

To start it off, here's what's going to happen. Every day in through February 28th (minus Sunday) at 6:00 PM EST
  1. I will tell you my favorite reads in the category of the day through their covers (you know how I love covers) and 
  2. Remember, you can see my review of the book (in a new window) by clicking on the covers. 
  3. Then you come back and fill out the Rafflecopter for a chance to win a prize! 



(NOT in any specific order!)


   
   

I really enjoyed all of these! I've only read book 1 of the ones above that's in a series, but boy oh boy, I am anxiously waiting for a chance to continue on.  Individually, they work so well. Each of them. It gives you everything you expect in a GOOD book, and more. 

The ones below, I've read EVERY one of the books in the series, and just LOVE it. As a series, they are just perfect. Perfect in every aspect of characters, plot, romance and a message that comes through. One aspect that I love 

  

  

  


 All of these for sure will be on my Favorites for a long time...possibly even for a lifetime!


Terms are on the Rafflecopter.

Many thanks to:

  10. Nadine Brandes is *amazing* and her books are pretty great too. :D Sara Ella and her debut are also fabulous. I've wanted to read Mary Weber's books for so long now, it's ridiculous that I haven't yet! It's a thing that needs to happen.

  19. I have not read any of these books on this list but as a church librarian, I'm always interested in learning about new young adult fiction. I think Joanne Bischoff's book will be added to my list to purchase.

    1. That's awesome. Joanne's great, and she has several that would be wonderful to add to the church library. Nadine Brandes' Out of Time series have very strong Christian references, and The Gifting & The Storm Siren Trilogy are more subtle with Christian principles.

  20. I haven't read any of these, but The Silent Songbird is on my TBR list! The idea of reimagining fairy tales is fascinating to me!
