Bookish Musings: Top Ten Books I Read in 2016

Yay, it's time for one of my favorite posts of the whole year because this is the post in which I get to talk about ALL the books that I loved most all at once! It's a post full of happiness and good feelings, and I get to reminisce about the highlights of my reading year. What more can any book blogger ask for? Anyway, I debated how to do this.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten 2016 Releases I’m Looking Forward To

I know this isn't the correct topic for this week, but honestly, I don't even pay attention to what books are released, nor do I actually schedule what books I want to read ahead of time.
