Today I’m sharing my favourite books read in 2015 (regardless of publication date). You can look back at my lists for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.
As I said last year, this list is obviously subjective, and is not necessarily a list of the ‘best’ books that I read this year but it’s a list of books that, looking back over what I read in 2015, stayed with me or made an impression, or that were the most fun or intense or exciting to read.
These are in no particular order:
1 Scream by Margee Kerr
I loved this book! It was non-fiction that was interesting and informative without being dull or dry, about a subject that I find totally fascinating: fear.
2 Six of Crows by Leigh Barduogo
This was an amazing book! I loved everything: the characters, the plot, the writing, the fact that there will be another book so I can read more about these characters…you should read it now if you haven’t already!!
3 You’re Never Weird on the Internet by Felicia Day
I love Felicia Day and was really looking forward to this book for a long time! It did not disappoint. If you’re a fan, this is a must-read.
4 The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy
I loved this book, partially because it truly creeped me out! Not many books have done that! I love reading books that are scary or unsettling, but not many stay with me once I put the book down. This one did!
5 Survive the Night by Danielle Vega
I’m a huge fan of Danielle Vega’s books, and this was one of my most-anticipated. It did not disappoint: tense, scary, gruesome, and really fun!
6 Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
Love love love this!
7 The Martian by Andy Weir
This was totally unputdownable. The movie was also wonderful!
8 Lois Lane: Fallout by Gwenda Bond
This book was so much fun!
9 The Young Elites by Marie Lu
It took me so long to finally read this book, and once I did, I totally loved it!
10 All the Rage by Courtney Summers
I wish I could get everyone I know to read this.
11 Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
Oh my gosh this book. It broke my heart but I loved it.
12 A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab
This is a wonderfully written fantasy that is dark, exciting, and unique. I can’t wait to read the sequel!
There you have it! What were your favourite 2015 reads? Have you read any of the books on my list?
