Top Ten of 2015: Best Books I’ve Read in 2015

It’s that time of year again! Thanks to  Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, Rachel @ Fiktshun, Jaime @ Two Chicks on Books, & Nancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader for hosting the TOP TEN OF 2015!

So today’s topic is 10 Best Books I’ve Read in 2015 (Doesn’t have to be released in 2015, just a book you’ve read in 2015). I’m super terrible at actually ranking my top ten, so here’s favourite in order of then I read them:


(01) A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab [my review]: So good, this one! Because what’s not to love about  Magic, a cross-dressing thief, sadistic kings (and queens), a royal who is equal parts Prince Harry and Jack Harkness (he’s seriously swoon-worthy), epic magicky fights scenes and a coat with more than two sides! I’m dying for book 2!


(02) The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski [my review]: ARRRG, Maria Rutkoski is queen of pulling out your heart and hanging it over the cliff. For serious, the angst and the cliffhanger. I just want Kestrel and Arin to be happpppy :'( (but yes, beautifully written book!)



(03) Uprooted by Naomi Novik [my review]: While Agnieszka is a hard name to say, it’s pretty easy to love her and her clutzy nature. It’s got a spooky a forest and a Dragon that’s actually a wizard and a rich magical tale of good versus evil. Just lovely!

(04) When the Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare [my review]: This book is unadulterated cuteness!! If the book cover doesn’t have you  swooning, the story will. A shy Maddie and a the not so imaginary Logan are just amazing. The romance is perfection.

(05) The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson [my review]: Book two into the series and it’s still going strong! Lia got to be more badass and sassy, yay! And the romance (and lack of love triangle) makes me happy.


(06) The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness [my review]: This was such a wonderful book about the non-Chosen Ones. The friendships and relationship were endearing and the story just grabs you.

(07) Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: I’ve meaning to write a review for this, but I’ve been struggling with expressing in words how much I enjoyed this book. There’s so many characters and amazing they’re all awesome (though maybe some slightly more awesome than others). Killer of a cliffhanger ending, damn do I need more!


(08) The Martian by Andy Weir [my review]: I jumped on the bandwagon and I’m glad I did! I  love space, and this book was awesome. It’s a roller coaster of emotions and oh the snark and sarcasm, perfection.


(09) Winter by Marissa Meyer [my review]: What can I even say about this? It’s sheeer perfection and the amazing wrap up to an amazing series. All the couples were so fantaaaaaastiiic! The story was action-packed.


(10) Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner: Definitely an awesome finale to the series, it wrapped up everything nicely. Lots of action and lots of cute romance. I adored Gideon. Sofia and Gideon make such an awesome couple.



Honourable Mentions;

Because I haven’t finished this book but I’m loving it so far!
All the shenanigan makes me so happy. And, urg, this couple is so amazing.

  1. Great bunch of books and I haven’t read a one of them. 🙂

  2. AHH. SO MANY FABULOUS BOOKS HERE! Six of Crows, Illuminae (“am I not merciful?”), Winter (<3), Their Fractured Light (ALL THE FEELS), and The Winner’s Crime are some of my favorite books of the year too. xD Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous choices! <3

  3. I should have included some of my favorite adult romance novels! I did YA only. We’d be here until 2017 if I tried to list all of my favorite adult novels. Perhaps later in the book! I LOVED When a Scot and The Rogue Not Taken, ADSOM and The Heart of Betrayal. Lovely list!

  10. I loved winner’s crime. Just holy shit it killed me. Cannot wait for winner’s kiss.
    Thanks for the post.

  11. What a great top 10 list!! I’ve had The Winner’s trilogy on my shelf for a few weeks now and I can’t wait to binge them before The Winner’s Kiss comes out! I’ve heard such great things about these books and I can’t wait to read a new forbidden romance! I’ve also wanted to read The Martian for a while now. I really enjoyed the film and I might try to listen to the audiobook. I’ve heard that it’s got great narration!

  12. I really really really need to read the Lunar Chronicles and Grisha series! They are high high high on my TBR for 2016! ;D
