A Willful Woman…

Thoughts about books from a romance addict.

Not entirely everything about 2016 sucked

on December 31, 2016

Books read, including shorts: 343, of which 29 were rereads. Below average for me, probably because of the last few months of 2016.

Books DNF’d: 32. Technically more, but I don’t usually make a record unless I’ve read further than the beginning.

Best book overall read in 2016: A Seditious Affair by K.J. Charles.

Best book (non-romance) and best depiction of an autistic person read in 2016: On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis.

Runner up (non-romance) : I Am Princess Ex by Cherie Priest.

Runner up (best depiction of an autistic person): Forget-Me-Not by Jordan Castillo Price.

Swooniest romance: A Gentleman’s Position by K.J. Charles.

Romance that most made me laugh and go Awwww: Manties in a Twist by J.A. Rock. 

Most entertainingly written romance: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.

Best Golden Oldie (not a reread): The Lily Brand by Sandra Schwab.

    I’m so happy you enjoyed A Seditious Affair. It’s one of my best readings of these last years, too. So powerful, sometimes heart-drenching, it can turn your your world upside down. I think everybody should give it a try.

    KJ Charles also surprised me a lot this year, I liked (and loved some) all the books I’ve read by the author!

    Good luck for 2017!

Miss Bates Reads Romance

Miss Bates is Austen's loquacious spinster in Emma. No doubt Miss Bates read romances, among other things ... here's what she would've thought of them.
