Daydreaming Discussions- Best books of 2016!

daydreaming discussions

Hey there guys! Welcome to Daydreaming Discussions. This is a monthly feature created by me where I discuss anything bookish related or sometimes it might be about any non-bookish things as well. Also, be prepared for a lot of ramblings and rantings and you’re very welcome to be a part of the discussion.

First of all Merry Christmas guys!! ❤ I hope you had a great day or is currently having one so far. I definitely enjoyed today. It was one of the best days ever!

So, today I wanted to list down all my favourite reads this year. Although it was mostly a crappy year for me but bookishly it was quite awesome. It was obviously quite tough to choose from 155 books! (I’m still reading the 155th book but oh well…) I freaking can’t believe I have read this much this year when my original goal was to reach just 70! Nonetheless, here are my top favourites-

Best Standalones:


how to say I love you out loud how to keep rolling after a fall cinder & ella 28794341 adorkable-final 29417253 29401076  30330745 punk-57


maybe someday 29976465 30508920 Pull Me Close whispers-roars

Best Completed series:

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare- I only had book 5 and 6 to finish this year and oh my gooood, MI is the one of the best series ever! I love this series so god damn much and the last book in this series was simply mindblowing!

15719929 20331482

The Royals trilogy by Erin Watt- Well… what’s to say about this, I really enjoyed this trilogy. I loved Reed and Ella and well all the Royals. It was definitely a juicy and entertaining read.

Paper Princess Broken Prince Twisted Palace

Worldwalker trilogy by Josephine Angelini- I sooo needed this trilogy in my life! I still need to finish the last two chapters of book 3 but well I can already tell I am going to love it. The plot is so intriguing and I love Lily! And Rowan too!

Best series that are ongoing or I’m still reading them-

Illuminae 23766623 0e3a2-savendisclosure fee78-saven-defiance df9f8-finding-kyler

  3. Wow! Great job reading 155 books this year*! I also adore The Illuminae Files; Gemina was even better than Illuminae in my opinion. Now, I read the first Mortal Instruments book and the ending turned me off quite a bit. I feel like based on your post I should keep going?

    *almost– you’re so close!

    • Thank you! I hope I can read Gemina soon enough, all these anticipation is making me crazy!
      Mortal Instruments is my most favourite series ever in this whole wide universe, so I hope you give it another chance! 🙂

      • I feel like I had better– I started seeking out some reviews of later books (spoiler free, of course), and it sounds like Clare’s writing improves *dramatically* over the course of the series. As I only read her debut novel, I feel like I should give her another chance. That’s a good book for my first readathon of the year, I guess. 🙂 Bring it on!

  4. Love your post! I’m going to post my best of 2016 at the end of this month and I really loved the simple format of this post. You have read some great books this year! I’ve been hearing mixed reviews about Worldwalker Trilogy but I think I should give it a try. I haven’t read Gemina either but I’m hoping to read it in January.

  5. ….You read 155 books?! You are my new hero.
    I am so glad you enjoyed The Mortal Instruments books! Have you read The Infernal Devices? Adorkable seems like a really cute read and the covers of the Worldwalker series are so cool! 😮 Really enjoyed reading this list 🙂

    • Oh yay! 😀 Glad you liked it.
      Yes I have read TID but I love TMI way more than former!
      You should definitely give Adorkable a try and if you love that, then definitely Holding Court, I kinda died laughing reading that book, so I think you would absolutely enjoy these two. 🙂

  6. Okay seriously how the heck did you manage to read 155 books???? That’s amazing!
    Also, haven’t read many of the books you mentioned except for ACOMAF, which I absolutely adore, and The Mortal Instruments series. I used to be so obsessed with TMI! Have you seen the show btw?

    Liked by 1 person

    • I… just did! 😀
      I still am obsessed! Yes, I am eagerly waiting for season 2, especially to see Magnus again, Harry has nailed that character! What about you? Have you watched the show?

      • I have watched the show but I was pretty upset with Katherine’s acting. Everything else was totally fine but God, I just can’t handle her for some reason 😦 that made me pretty upset TBH because I really wanted to looooooove the show 100%

      • I totally agree, with you, she didn’t sit well with me either. I really wanted Lily Collins for Clary but well… I hope Kat can redeem herself in the next season.

    • That’s awesome!
      You should definitely give Tone Deaf a go, I have a feeling you are going to love it! I still need to read Gemina, I seriously can’t wait to get to it! 🙂

  7. Wow! 2016 may have sucked but it was a great year for books! ACOMAF was hands-down my favorite book this year. I loved the TMI series as well and those books are great as well. Have you gotten around to reading Lady Midnight yet?
    I read the first book of the world walker trilogy awhile ago, and I think I should probably go back and finish that series. 😊 and great job with your reading goal 👍 that is definitely impressive!

    • Absolutely it was!
      I already have Lady Midnight but I am kinda a binge reader, I am waiting for book 2, so that I can read it together.
      Yes, the Worldwalker trilogy is sooo good, I enjoyed it so much!
      Thanks! 🙂


  8. Great list & IMPRESSIVE # of books read! you’re no my #Goals lol. I set my GR challenge at 60 and i’m only at 68, reading my 69th & 70th at the moment. I just recently snagged a deal on Kindle for book 1 in The Royals trilogy & can’t wait for the right moment to dig in. The covers on The Worldwalker trilogy are seriously GORGE! I have the not so charming hardcover editions but need to start them soon. I Love ME some witches ❤ ❤ ❤

    Illuminae/Gemina ROCKED my 2016 *hands down* 🙂
