Last month, we shared with you our favorite books of 2016, and then asked you to choose your favorite from that list (or submit a write-in candidate). Three weeks of intense competition later, all votes have been tallied, and the winner of the 2016 FYA Reader Favorite is ...
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. Y’all obviously appreciated Chapter 55 as much as we did.
Second place goes to The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater, and third goes to Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo. The top write-in pick was The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. (Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff came in second in write-in votes, but the book was published in 2015 and therefore doesn’t count for this poll.)
Thanks for voting! If you're feeling prescient and have any predictions for the top book of 2017, leave ‘em in the comments.
