Best Books I've Read in 2015

The Top Ten of 2015 event is hosted by Jaime from Two Chicks on Books, Rachel from Fiktshun, Nancy from Tales of a Ravenous Reader, and Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads!


Today, I'm sharing my top ten best books I've read in 2015!

(In no particular order. Also, the pictures link to my reviews)

(Also, keep in mind that I have at least six more books to read in 2015.)

(Also, as always, this was HARD. So, no offense to the books that didn't make the cut.)

    

    

   

  

(Note that I did not include any of my favorite adult novels. Of the few five-star ratings that I had for 2015, only two weren't an adult romance novel. The other four (ish?) were adult romance novels!)


I didn't really have a favorite this year! I had many that I really liked though. There are more that I wish I could put on here -- especially some adult romance novels! I kept this strictly YA only. Honorable mentions (YA) go to:

  1. Dangerous Lies and The Rose Society were great! You have a lot on your list that I am dying to read I just haven't gotten to yet! Awesome list!

  2. Hi Alyssa, I've read a few of your top 10. They were definitely some of my favorites, especially Six of Crows, which I just finished. Kaz--criminal prodigy, terrible flirt. =) I'll definitely add the others to my Goodreads TBR, especially Sword and Verse. Wish I could also see your adult list, as well. I have a soft spot for romance.

  14. The Wrath and the Dawn is sitting on my bookshelf waiting to read. I was so mad I didn't get an egalley or ARC of it, then I never got to it. Great choices!

    1. Dude! I know exactly how you feel! If I don't get an eARC/ARC, then there is a good chance that I might not read the book. Sad, but true, with my schedule! :/

  15. AHHHH. I LOVE THIS LIST. I want to read all the ones I didn't get to (SoC, WbW and VR) they all sound super great! I'm glad (ahem, and a little salty c: ) you read Passenger and Truthwitch and loved them!! Again, great list Alyssa <3

    1. Personally I think you made a good decision to wait on Wrath's sequel before starting Wrath! The wait is SO painful!
