TOP TEN TUESDAY
December 15, 2015
It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was Top
Ten Thirteen Books I Read in 2015
I went through a dry spell for a while with Top Ten Tuesday but I just love these end-of-the-year lists! I really enjoy gathering up everything and seeing what I read over the year (which is another reason I love year-end surveys)! I can never pass up the opportunity to book-push my favorites and I was really curious to see which books made into my overall top ten. Thankfully, I have a Goodreads shelf that I keep going all throughout the year called Best of 2015 so at least it’ll be easy to see what I need to pick from. It was too hard to only pick ten so I chose thirteen!
2015 was the year of some of the BEST series continuations, finales, and spin-offs. QUEEN OF SHADOWS blew me away with how amazingly it continued the series and had me continue to fall in love. SIX OF CROWS had me reading it twice within a few months! And WINTER was the series finale of one of my all-time favorite series EVER.
I fell in love with THE NAME OF THE WIND and THE WISE MAN’S FEAR this year and I was so amazed with and invested in Kvothe’s story! I adore Scott Lynch’s books and could’t get enough of Locke Lamora with THE REPUBLIC OF THIEVES. Becky Wallace amazed me with her debut, THE STORYSPINNER, and I finally read SERAPHINA which was just a delightful read for me.
SLAYING IT WITH SCI-FI
Who knew I enjoyed space so much? I was so wrapped up in ILLUMINAE and ARMADA! I found another Brandon Sanderson series to fall in love with in STEELHEART (and FIREFIGHT!) and it was a bittersweet ending to read the second and final book in the Dissonance duology with RESONANCE!
I do tons of re-reads (okay, not tons. But more than ten) throughout the year! Instead of reviews, I did a read-alike guide for ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS, an informal re-read review of THE RAVEN BOYS, some YA Aesthetics for THE SCORPIO RACES, and a mini re-read review of HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS.
