Best Books of 2016 (and Some From 2015, Too)

Dragons, Zombies and Aliens has now been around for over a year. In that time I've read and reviewed some amazing (and not-so-amazing) novels and anthologies. With October coming up (and for those of us in Minnesota, that means we can expect to be snowed in within the week), I have compiled a list of the best books I have read in the last year-and-a-month. Enjoy! :)


And if you think something needs to be added to this list (or taken away), feel free to hit the comment section below!

7. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms




Available on Amazon for $6.82. Click here for details.

Full review here.

This is a fast-paced, thrilling epic fantasy that follows the first--and last--week of Yeine's life at court before she dies. (Spoiler? She tells us she's going to die in the beginning, so...)



6. Shadows of Sherwood




Available on Amazon for $7.99. Click here for details.

Full review here.

YA sci-fi Robin Hood. What's not to love?



5. Magnus Chase: the Sword of Summer



Available on Amazon for $9.99. Click here for details.

Full review here.

It's Rick Riordan. That's all I have to say about it. :)




4. Bone Gap




Available on Amazon for $5.99. Click here for details.

Full review here.

I'm still convinced Laura Ruby's doing some kind of 'shrooms to make a book like this. But it's obviously working, so I'm not one to criticize.




3. Dangerous Women




Available on Amazon for $9.99. Click here for details.

Review is not yet up! This one will be a guest post on Civilian Reader.

This is a cross-genre anthology from some of the best authors in the business. There is not a single damsel in distress to be found, just a bunch of truly amazing stories.




2. Zombies vs. Unicorns





Available on Amazon for $6.99. Click here for details.

Full review here.

That title. You cannot beat that title.




1. Trials of Apollo




Available on Amazon for $7.17. Click here for details.

Full review here.

Rick Riordan, hitting the list twice! Cannot wait for the second Magnus Chase book in October!
