This year I read more books than I could have ever even thought myself capable of (double what I read last year). And so many of them were so amazing I would most definitely read them many times over. Heck, I did in some cases.

My total for the year was 51 books and they are listed below. I’ve put them in the best order I could from my most favorite to least favorite (yes that includes series because you can’t just pick one book in a series to stand alone, they all need to rock to work together (well maybe with the exception of ACHERON because it was easily my favorite book overall for the year)).
