Top 10 Best Books I’ve Read in 2015

Top 10 of 2015

 

Yay for Day 1 in the Top 10 of 2015! This is my first time participating in one of these and I’m really excited about it! Thank you to Fiktshun, Tales of a Ravenous Reader, Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Two Chicks on Books for hosting!

I had been in a bit of a reading slump the past few years. Between working two jobs, going to grad school full time, and dealing with a ridiculous commute I just didn’t have the time. I am happy to say that I made it out of the slump this year with the help of some pretty amazing books.

  1. Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

 

16429619

I won this book as part of a giveaway from the publisher and I immediately fell in love.

     2. Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

21569527

 

This ARC was also part of the giveaway prize pack and I couldn’t have been more thankful to have the sequel when I finished Kiss of Deception. Now I am anxiously awaiting The Beauty of Darkness.

    3. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

18798983

This book renewed my love for retellings and it was beautifully written.

   4. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

16096824

Another excellent retelling! I have a hard time passing up anything related to Beauty and the Beast.

   5. The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace

22546577

This tale was woven with the expertise of a true storyspinner.

   6. I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

I won this book by participating in a writing challenge. As former military, this book was incredibly meaningful to me and I can’t thank Heather enough for writing it.

   7. Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly

 

23354047

This came in one of my Owlcrate boxes and I had never actually heard of it. It was fun, lighthearted, mysterious, and kept me laughing with the quick dialogue.

   8. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

17878931

I was a little wary about reading this after all of the hype, but I’m glad I did. I really enjoyed the mix of fantasy and dystopian.

   9. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

 

18081228

I was impressed by all of the strong female characters this year and Wilhelmina was no exception.

   10. The entire Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas

23599075

I know I was behind the times, but I’m actually really glad that I got to read them consecutively leading up to the release of Queen of Shadows. Of course now I have a massive book hangover that will linger until the next book comes out.

 

Honorable mentions:

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Blood & Salt by Kim Liggett

I Heart Robot by Suzanne von Rooyen

There were plenty of other great reads that I came across this year and my TBR is about a mile long at this point, so I am sure you will be seeing many of those books on here next year.
