HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Our 2016 in review

Welcome to our end of the year post! 

We hope you've had a great 2016 and read some awesome books. 

As usual, we tried to put together our top reads of 2016, and we were horribly unsuccessful. Don't get us wrong, we were able to come up with lists, but we were unsuccessful at narrowing down our favorite reads of the year to just 16 books each. We always have our cheats by doing an "Honorable Mentions list" but that didn't even help this year. 

So, without further ado, here are our lists! 

It is with GREAT difficulty that I narrowed down my Top 16 Books of 2016... to ONLY 16 freaking books! In order to include the many authors that I love, I have decided to choose only one book from each author for this year. HOWEVER! That does NOT mean I have only read one amazing book from that author this year! I need that to be clear people! 😉 Also, the order in which they are listed will reflect those read starting from January and ending in December. Damn this was hard...

1. Sebring by Kristen Ashley *
2. The Baller by Vi Keeland
3. Up In Smoke by Tessa Bailey *
4. Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren
5. Wallflowers by CP Smith *
6. Dirty by Kylie Scott
7. Built by Jay Crownover
8. Screwed by Kendall Ryan
9. Mercy F*ck by K.S. Adkins *
10. The Perfect Stroke by Jordan Marie *
11. Divine Ecstacy by Setta Jay *
12. Bad Judgment by Meghan March
13. Hetch by River Savage
14. Revealed to Him by Jen Frederick
15. Read My Lips by Daryl Banner *
16. Cocky Roomie by Faleen Hopkins *

Ok EFF it, I can't leave some of these books of the list! Fyi, the * just means there were other books by this author that were amazing and I loved them! Ok so here are some extras I just couldn't leave off.

17. So. Long by Kelley Harvey
18. The Regent Vampire Lords series by K.L Kreig
19. The Code 11-KPD SWAT series by Lani Lynn Vale
20. Badd Motherf*cker by Jasinda Wilder
21. Incredible You by Lili Valente
22. The Sexy One & Mister O by Lauren Blakely
23. Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley (as well as all the other books she's published)
24. Penny Wylder - yes ALL her books too. (I know I'm cheating at this point. Shaddup)
25. Porn Star by Zara Cox
26. Sassy and a little Bad-Assy by Jessie Lane
27. The Real Man series by Jenika Snow
28. Bed Wrecker by Kim Karr
29. Saturday Night Special by Mari Carr
30. Seven Years Dannika Dark
31. Devil's Bride by Stephanie Laurens
32. Love Potions by Michelle M. Pillow
33. First Down by Rae Lynn Blaise
34. Smolder by Melinda Minx

Can someone please tell me how I'm supposed to pick just 16 books out of 160 read this year!? It's just impossible! 

I started my list early and was able to narrow my list down to 68 of my favorites for the year. But then it got complicated. I started color coating things and making multiple lists and it was just to difficult to pick between them! 

That was just my very long way of saying that I cheated...big time. I know, I know...bad Lindsay. But there were so many great books this year and they were really hard to choose from. So sue me. 😜 

My list is also in chronological order with some slight variations if there were multiple books by the same author.

1. Stage Dive series by Kylie Scott
2. Jax by Vivian Lux
3. The Baller by Vi Keeland
4. Tackled by Sabrina Paige
5. RoomHate by Penelope Ward
6. Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward
7. HardBall by C.D. Reiss
8. Chloe by Sarah Brianne
9. Wicked Heart by Leisa Rayven
10. Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry
11. Wrong by Jana Aston
12. Trust by Jana Aston
13. Moonshot by Alessandra Torre
14. Hollywood Dirty by Alessandra Torre
15. The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout
16. Roommates by Hazel Kelly
17. Wrong by Stella Rhys
18. Ex Games by Stella Rhys
19. So. Long. by Kelley Harvey
20. Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley
21. Wanting My Stepsister by Alexa Riley
22. Read My Lips by Daryl Banner
23. The Perfect Stroke by Jordan Marie
24. Styx by Victoria Ashley

26. Center Mass by Lani Lynn Vale
27. Smokey by L. Wilder
28. Naughty Boss by Whitney G.
29. Ares: Bringer of War by George O’Connor

Unlike Nikki, I didn't even try to be good. Once I narrowed it down to those 29, I just left it. To remove any of them would be too hard.
