I read in all genres, but I always come back to fantasy. It is truly my not-so-guilty pleasure. And I have read a lot of good fantasy this year. I am especially partial to what I think of as magical girl fantasy (much like magical girl manga), so I scoured my list of 2016 goodreads books for my top 5 of 2016 (read in 2016, not published). Here they are in all their wondrous glory:
Beyond the Red by Ava Jae / The Queen of Blood, Book One of The Queens of Renthia / Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix / Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge / A Matter of Magic by Patricia Wrede
These books are otherworldly, mythic in scope, and full of wit and wonder.

I haven’t heard of any of those, and I love fantasy! Guess who will be doing some library research?
Happy to be of service 🙂
