These are my favourite stand alones I read in 2016. I will also include books where only the first book in the series has been released.
The Martian by Andy Weir
This book is so funny, I really enjoyed it. The movie was good but it left out my favourite part.
Beauty and the Beast retelling! I love retellings and it was so good.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
This is a beautiful story with amazing illustrations by Jim Kay. I cried a bit but its going to be a movie next year. I can’t wait!
Such a fun story that actually made me want to get my flu shot because of what happened in the book.
I just really enjoyed this story but it was kinda sad. I love the mystery part (if it actually is a mystery, I’m just going to call it that.).
It’s really sad what happened but it’s a really enjoyable story.
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
LOVE this book. This was the first book I finished this year and it was so fun. I love all the Scott Westerfeld books I have read.
I love the setting for this story. I read the first paragraph of the synopsis and I had to buy the book.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Another Beauty and the Beast retelling! This has to be Sarah’s best book she has written.
I love the format and I love the characters. It’s was so easy to read pages because the format changed so often (like when I read the Amazing Book is Not on Fire).
