  2. Burial Rites and All The Light We Cannot See are both books on my tbr. If I don't get to them by the end of the year they will be at the top of my list in 2017. Fantastic top ten!

  4. Hannah Kent's Burial Rites was one of my absolute favorite titles of last year! Glad you enjoyed it. I haven't read the others but I'm open to new authors.

  6. Patrick Ness and Neal Shusterman! Two of my favorites.

    I'm dying to read a few of these authors, but they just get pushed back. I need to stop doing that.

  7. I discovered Jenny Lawson this past year too and I absolutely loved "Furiously Happy". I technically listened to this read, but she narrated it which made me love her even more! I definitely want to read her other book in 2017!

  10. Marcus Sedgwick is on my non-existent list that I made up on someone else's comment section! Also, YESSS to Patrick Ness and Neal Shusterman. MY FAVES. Also LOVED More Happy Than Not (and really, Adam is just a wonderful human being in general) and I'll Give You the Sun- can't wait to read Jandy and Adam's other books! Great choices!

  13. Nearly all of my books this year were from new to me authors, and it would be tough to narrow things down. I had one of my better reading years.
    Neal Shusterman is a favorite of mine. Furiously Happy was a bit over the top for me.

  14. Shusterman and Ness are two of my current favorites for sure, though I started reading both a few years ago. I didn't wind up putting the post together, but in my planning post I had Silvera, Schwab, and Nelson too. And I seriously need to get going on some Sedgewick. Maybe over winter break.

  15. Ness is one of my favorites! I really need to pick up Shusterman soon.

  16. Jandy Nelson and Jennifer NIven are both authors I have read for the first time this year as well and enjoyed! Although for the former, I haven't read I'll Give You Sun, but instead The Sky is Everywhere! I want to rad the other a lot now though. :D

  17. Great list. I've heard lots of good things about most of these. I haven't read any of them yet but I do have a few on my list that I need to check out now. Thanks for sharing!

  18. I loved More Happy Than Not and can hardly wait to read History Is All You Left Me. My blogging buddy, Elizabeth, has been hammering me about reading Unwind. I have the ebook, so there is no excuse! Great list. :)
