A Preview of My Top Ten of 2016 So Far
- The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
Synopsis: Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole life—at home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes, and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father’s extreme faith and very public fall from grace.
This book is just all around amazing. I laughed and cried at different points. I was lucky to read this as an ARC. I now have the finished copy sitting on my shelf waiting for a good day to reread. If you want to read about growth, forgiveness and friendship this is the book for you. Read my full review Here
- The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine
Synopsis: Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.
My review will go live shortly but until then all that matter is CJ Redwine was able to do it yet again. I was pulled from my 3 week book slump into a world of pure imagination. The imagery in this novel is just as good as her other series.
- The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
Synopsis: Nix has spent her entire life aboard her father’s ship, sailing across the centuries, across the world, across myth and imagination.
As long as her father has a map for it, he can sail to any time, any place, real or imagined: nineteenth-century China, the land from One Thousand and One Nights, a mythic version of Africa. Along the way they have found crewmates and friends, and even a disarming thief who could come to mean much more to Nix.
But the end to it all looms closer every day.
At first I was worried this wouldn't live up to the hype it has received. It does guys. I really enjoyed it. I even sat in a parking garage at a magic tournament for three hours in order to finish the last half of this book. There is something about time-traveling that really peaks my interest.

I hope you enjoyed my little preview. Normally I don`t have a Top Ten till the end of the year but these three books just jumped off the page.
