2016 was a good year for reading and listening here at Caffeinated. I read/listened to approx. 267 books both from my TBR pile and ARCS. I participated in three year long challenges. Come see how I did.
I consumed over 265 books in 2016 reading and listening to everything from horror to sweet small-town romances. Romance is absent from my top ten as I decided to separate them into their own top ten. I did this when I realized that despite my love of romance, other genres like fantasy, thrillers, and horror pushed them from my overall top ten list.
In 2016 I read 265 books and you’ll find many romances listed in that number. I love romance whether it’s a small-town romance or served on the side in a mystery thriller. Listed below in no particular order are ten romances that were among my favorites this year. Grab a cup of mocha coffee and enjoy. Maybe you’ll find your next book boyfriend.
2016 was an amazing year for Audiobooks. I managed to listen to 70+ books this year. Some were new releases and others came from my backlist.
Today I am sharing coffee pot reviews of books I have read from my TBR pile. It’s a mix of books, authors, and genres. I hope you find your next read.

I have read nearly all of Chris Bohjalian novels and have loved them. The Sleepwalker was on my December reading list when the opportunity presented itself to review The Premonition. I could not resist. This is a very short prequel narrated by Cady McClain on audio and available as an eBook. Bohjalian takes the reader to a quiet Vermont town and shares the events of one summer.
The Old Witcheroo by Dakota Cassidy is the fourth book in the Witchless in Seattle series. The tale features Stevie Cartwright, a spunky, quirky, powerless witch. Who along with her British ghost spy and unique familiar solve murder mysteries. Stevie once again stumbles across a body, and you know all those phone calls from a guy claiming to be her dead Brit? He shows up and well, let’s just say, things get a little crazy.
Today I once again have Sophia Rose from Delighted Reader sharing a guest review. I am excited to hear her thoughts on Good Time Coming. The story takes place at the beginning of the Civil War, and I am drawn to this time period. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy!
If you follow Caffeinated you know, I am picky about young adult reads and rarely do I ever read a contemporary romance. Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Lousie Gornall spoke to me from the synopsis to the cover and well here I am.
