Favourite books of 2016 | That awkward moment where I realise I’ve been reluctant with the 5 stars

favourite-books-2016

Hi guys! How are you all doing? I hope all of you that celebrate Christmas had a wonderful time these past few days ❤

Today’s post is coming to you a bit later in the day than usual. With the festivities and general busyness of the season, I didn’t have time to write and schedule the post beforehand like usual. And let’s face it, it’s taking me longer to get back into the swing of things after taking a break.

But today, I’m bringing you my favourite books of 2016. The ones I READ in 2016, not necessarily published in 2016. Now, when I came to look through my Goodreads challenge to choose my favourites out, I was originally planning on picking out 16 for 2016. BUT…then I realised that this year, I’ve actually been quite stingy with my 5 star ratings, and there’s not that many I wanted to mention. However, I did rate a fair few books a 4.5/5 stars, and some of those are really close to being all-time favourites (and are definitely favourites for this year) so I’ve included those too, and managed to get 10.

So let’s talk about my favourite books of 2016!

Corner bookmarks – how do you make them? Well, I’ll show you how to DIY!

This is probably the post that has taken me the longest to write – ever – on my blog.

Between making the bookmarks, stopping to take photos of each step, waiting for things to dry, cleaning, and actually writing the post…this has been an all day thing. So I REALLY hope you guys like this 😆 A lot of you liked my Bibliophile Canvas DIY last week so my hope is there 😀

So, most of us bookworms have a thing for bookmarks. I mean, we should have one for every single book we own, right? RIGHT? 

(All right, maybe not EVERY book. But most.)

Is it a bad thing? I don’t think so. SO I’M GOING TO FUEL THAT COLLECTING CREATURE INSIDE YOU AND LET IT BLOSSOM INTO A BEAUTIFULLY CREATIVE FLOWER.

Yep.

May Book Haul – How Do You Manage To Accumulate Books Without Even Realizing?

may book haul

Well apparently it’s June.

May did actually drag for me. When I look back at these books, they all feel like I got them a lifetime ago. Well, apart from the last three, which I got a couple of days ago.

About that: The last three books I technically got on June 1st, BUT…I’m hoping not to buy any books in June so they’re being put into this book haul rather than be missed out.

And the title?

That’s because with this month dragging out so much for me, I managed to accumulate nine books in May without even realizing it. Probably because of a combination of me not buying all of them/ I’ve already read some of them/ and I got them over such a wide span…or so I thought.

So that’s enough rambling. Here’s the books!
