Hi everyone. It’s been a really good reading year for me, quality wise. Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is the Top Ten Best Books We Read In 2015 (you can do it by only 2015 releases, overall , by genre (top ten fantasy books I read in 2015), etc. however you choose to make your BEST list)
I decided to do only 2015 releases that I read. This is in no order, well, except by the order I read them.
~Favorite Books of 2015~
This was the first book I read because of hype in the year and it definitely did not let me down. I could really relate to emotions from Finch and Violet.
This would be the second book I read because of the year. I had actually waited up to read it when my library’s digital catalog got it. Once again, it was really good and lived up to my expectations. It’s in my top three favorite books of the year.
I really liked the way Making Pretty dealt with so many things like father/daughter relationships, strained sister relationships, toxic friendships and society’s push to look perfect. Given Montana’s dad’s occupation, the last aspect was especially interesting.
This was a book that didn’t exactly follow the plot I thought it would, but completely killed me by the end of the book.
This was my most highly anticipated book of the year that made a past TTT last year. It’s also my favorite book of the year, the emotion, the characters, the tone was just all so perfect for me.
I had heard about More Happy Than Not quite a bit when I’d requested this one. Unfortunately I kept pushing it off forever and only read it this past June. It is so amazing with the way it intersects diversity and melds together all these different aspects to form a full picture.
This was probably ‘the’romance for me of the year. Childhood almost loves to something more. It was precious and so easy to get sucked into.
When I requested this, I had a feeling it would be a me book, but for whatever reason, I didn’t read it forever, despite the praise I’d seen it getting. So when I read it, I should have expected to love it, but it caught me by surprise with that. This is most likely my third favorite book of the year.
Another book that I took way too long to read. The character and plot was unique. I loved the way the book was formatted at parts. The romance was sweet and I definitely liked it.
This is a really dark book that took some getting used to, given the fact it’s written in Third Person. It deals with suicide and alcohol, which it did really well.
I don’t know what I was expecting when I’d read this book, I’d kind of forgotten the plot, but had a vague idea (and then looked it up on Goodreads). I think this is such an important book because it deals with sports privilege and rape in a way that unfortunately does happen to a lot of people. It’s very timely and hard to read at times.
