Best 50 Books of 2016

How goes it my fellow bibliophiles? 2016 has been one hell of a year. This year we have seen the death of many a beloved celebrity, a sketchy election and monumental social action. As for books, well, this year I have read some truly amazing stories. From fiction to non-fiction, my world has been rocked by the talent and bravery of so many authors. AlliesOpinions reviews a wide range of genres and I know there is something for every one this list! I am proud to present my picks for your viewing pleasure.

Book Review “Moonstone Beach” Linda Seed

"Moonstone Beach" is what I would call the perfect beach (or poolside) read. Each character is like someone you know (or wish you did). Cambria sounds like a beautiful little town and the camaraderie of those who inhabit it brings a coziness to the story. Seed writes her characters lovingly. From Kate's inner circle to those who skim it each encounter is written with the aura of love. It's clear that these characters hold significance to Seed and her love for them will bleed to the reader almost from page one.
