I started blogging around 4 days before 2014 ended, thinking “This is my year, I’m going to read all of the books!” and to be honest, I’ve probably read more this year than any other year, simply because of the wonderful blogosphere and it’s many recommendations, Top Ten Tuesdays, in particular, helped to find so many great books!
I had a list of the books I wanted to read this year. I’ve read quite a few but haven’t completed the list. Well, there’s always 2016! I also did a few reading challenges and I’m quite sure I completed all, but I never updated them. So does that count as a hit or a miss? I’m definitely going to keep better track of my reading in 2016. And write more reviews. And keep my goodreads page updated!
2015 for me was a brilliant reading year. I’ve read some phenomenal books. Here are my top ten favourites!
So this is my top 10 of 2015:
10. Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead’s writing and her characters are amazing. I preferred the Vampire Academy series over the Bloodlines series – it was more action packed and adventurous and I just love Rose’s narrative! This book happened to be my favourite. The twist is so unexpected and just. Wow. I loved it.
9. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
This was such a unique book, full of fun and adventure and just a smidgeon of romance. The writing was so on point. I loved it so much.
8. The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
I loved the characters and writing of Sarah Dessen. The story was so beautiful, the setting. It really moved me.
7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Oh. My. God. Stephanie Perkins’s writing blew me away! The setting, the characters, the dialogue. It was so cutesy and lovely and warm and fuzzy ahhh, I loved this!
6. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas
The Throne of Glass series blew me away. So good. I especially loved this one because we got to see a different side of Celaena. The next two were a bit meh for me, but this one, I loved.
5. Just One Day by Gayle Forman
The storyline was so compelling, the setting complementing it. The characters and their growth, everything was so inspiring.
4. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
This was something I was very excited about reading, and it lived up to my expectations! The story was so weird, but it was awesome. The dialogue, the characters were all so quirky and fun to read about. The sequel wasn’t as good, but I’m still excited for this series.
3. Winter by Marissa Meyer
The Lunar Chronicles was so good and this finale, was just perfect. Everything was resolved nicely. Loved it soo much.
2. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh
THIS WAS SO GOOD! So unique and different from everything I’ve ever read. So many expectations for this series!!
1. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
William Herondale. OhMyGod. Wow. Everything about this story was amazing. I LOVED IT SO MUCH. The love triangle broke my heart. Made me cry all the times I reread it.
So that’s it, my favourite books from 2015! Special mention to the Lux Series and Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour. 🙂
