2016 Favourites (Pt.1)

The year 2016 is coming to a close. The year 2016 is over. Done. Bye 2016.

It is both sad and exciting. 2016 was a great  strange reading year for me. The blog began halfway through the year and before that the reading slump was real and I never kept track of my ‘reading.’ Of course till the making of Closet Readers. I think it’s time to wrap up this years favourites (pt.1).

Favourite Genre

There are an abundance of genres from science fiction to horror something for everyone. Which genre was a) Most read and b) Most loved.


YA fantasy & YA contemporary



YA Contemporary

YA Contemporary never truly let me down and I found myself drawn to it this year for everything it brings.

Favourite Read

To qualify the book had to  not only be a brilliant read but one I would recommend to all and has  a rating of 4 stars and above.




I feel I have to say Cursed Child by J.K Rowling. Not only was it a great read that completely delivered but out of loyalty to the world created in the first 7 books I just have a huge love for this book. Thanks for bringing me back J.K.

Favourite (newly found) Author

A newly found author who I will continuously read and praise. To qualify the author must be new to me this year and I must also have read their work.



Malorie Blackman

The author of Noughts and Crosses definitely deserves praise. I loved the book and I love this author!

  1. I haven’t read any of Malorie Blackman’s books yet. I’ll definitely have to look into her works. I also loved Cursed Child– I’m so glad someone else enjoyed it too! I feel like most of the reviews I’ve read are not favorable. But I love reading plays, so I’m practiced. I can’t wait to go see it! (Not that it will happen any day soon… But someday!)
