This is going to be a really quick post since I should be completing some very important chores. I’m dropping by to post of my best reads of 2015. Last year, i.e. 2014, I barely read eighteen books and that’s counting the stuff I had to read for my college literature exams and prep. This year, I set the books to be read goal at 50 but then increased it to 65 to have a healthy competition with Salonie who blogs at Whoa! (It’s only healthy now that I’ve won it).
So, in no particular order here are the best reads of 2015 (if I’ve reviewed them, I’ll add a link to the review so you can check them out).
- Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
This book has changed my life. And I’m not even exaggerating. For some reason, after reading an ARC of this book I finally realized that I like YA more than I’ve ever like classic literature. Simon’s story was fresh and I really did love it.
- Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
WHAT A BOOK. This one simply blew my mind. Everyone should read this. EVERYONE.
- Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
The amazing end to The Infernal Devices trilogy and my favourite Cassandra Clare book. I don’t even remember the events of The Mortal Instruments anymore.
- These Broken Stars (& Their Fractured Light) by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
My first foray into YA Science Fiction and I loved this trilogy. TBS will always be my favourite book, but TFL did a bloody good job too. But nobody beats Tarver.
- The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Finished this a couple days ago and I’m still overwhelmed with all the Sean-Puck-Horses feels. And I’ve never even ridden a horse.
- The Deal by Elle Kennedy
Favourite Romance New Adult of the year. I must’ve read this one several times over the years.
- The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
Listen, any Maggie Stiefvater book is simply perfection. Period.
- Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler
A wonderfully diverse read with a beautiful, lyrical prose and a set of characters I adored.
- Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
Another mental health awareness book I read and enjoyed this year. We need more of these.
- Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler
JV is one of those books, that kinda stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page and you still can’t fathom how a book can make you feel such things.
The Mistake (Elle Kennedy), The Duff (Kody Keplinger), Everything Everything (Nicola Yoon), Clockwork Prince (Cassandra Clare) and Made You Up (Francesca Zappia).
See you guys in 2016.
Until next time,
