THE DBR AWARDS 2016 | My Year In Books

Hello readers, and happy Friday! I know this post is really, really late, but today I thought I would do the New Year feature that I debuted last year - the DBR awards! Basically, this works instead of a 'Top Ten Books of 2016' post - last year I came up with categories to sort my favourite books of this year, and I'm going to do that again this year!

It was extremely difficult to decide my favourite books of this year, because I have read so many wonderful books by so many fabulous authors. 

However... I managed it! Check out the winners below!

I will link my review (If I wrote one) if not, I will link the Goodreads page...

Enjoy <3
