Even though I only read 74 books in 2016 in caparison to 145 books in 2015, it was still a pretty good reading year. I tried some great new authors and read many good books. Besides this, the highlight of 2016 for me is this blog. I started Travelling Through Words and worked on it. I designed my own banner. I posted book reviews and a lot of other posts. I made connections with other bloggers, bookstagrammers and authors. For me, these are the best accomplishments I made this year.
I also completed my 1 year blogging anniversary this month. With this, I want to give a huge thank you to all the people who read my posts, followed my blog, commented on it, liked it and just everyone who supported me. THANK YOU SO MUCH <3
All this said, lets get started with my 2016 reading journey!

Ok. I bought the Cambia Hebert since it’s on Kindle unlimited and the Audio was $2.99. The DAVID Leviathan i bought a year ago and forgot about it. I’ll add it to my Get to Fast list
That’s great! These books are definitely worth the read.
My youngest son is a Rock Riordan fan. Thanks for these recommendations.
That’s great! His books are really great for children and young adults. Thank you:)
This sounds like you’ve had a great reading year!
You have a lovely website, I just became a new follower 🙂
I did have a good read year:) Thank you so much!
I love Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series! I haven’t read the Greek Gods and Heroes, along with the Magnus Chase series, but you seem to be enjoying them! Will definitely take a look at them!
Thank you for the list! 😀
You’re welcome! The Greek Gods and Heroes are absolutely amazing! You’ll love them since you liked Percy Jackson. The first Magnus Chase is really good too and I just got the second one!
Yes, I believe so! 😀
Ooh! I will be waiting for your review about the series! XD
Thank you:) I’ll post a review of the second Magnus Chase as soon as I read it. I do have reviews of the first book and the Greek Gods if you want to check them out.
I do want to! I will check them out shortly 😀
