So now that it’s the end of the year, I figured I’d show you what my Top 10 books of 2015 were. I think it’s going to be difficult to choose just 10!
I’ve written a guest post very similar to this over on Books With Em’s, so you guys should go and check that out!
Anyway, I’ll mix this one up a bit so that it’s not exactly the same post. I suppose the guest post can be a sort of…Top 5 favourites from my Top 10 – if that makes any sense.
Now instead of rambling on, time for me to show you my top 10 favourite books of 2015!
Queen of Shadows
by Sarah J Maas
Of course a Sarah J Maas book was going to be on here. I actually wanted A Court of Thorns and Roses to be on this list to but I needed the space for other books too. Let’s just say that Queen of Shadows is here to represent all Sarah J Maas books.
The Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
by JK Rowling and Jim Kay
I only just finished this a couple of days ago but it had to be on the list. Harry Potter has made a come back! Plus this illustrated editions is just gorgeous so how could I not include it?
The Dead House
by Dawn Kurtagich
This was a surprise favourite, as I’d never heard of it before. But it’s one of those books that’s formatted really interestingly – in letters, diary entries, camera footage etc. I sped through this book so quickly considering it’s size. It’s one of those books that really grips you, and you just have to keep reading.
A Darker Shade of Magic
by V.E. Schwab
I discovered Victoria Schwab’s books this year, and even though I’ve only read a couple of her books so far, she has become one of my favourite authors. The second book to this series is coming out in February, and it’s one of my most anticipated releases.
The Shadow of the Wind
by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
This is one of those books that has made me want to buy all the books from the same author and see if I love them just as much. I actually did get one of his other books for Christmas so…that may become a thing. This book, along with The Book Thief, really got me into historical fiction, so I’m really glad I picked this up!
by Ransom Riggs
This is the second book is Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children trilogy. I love how quirky this series is, with the photographs adding something unique to the story. I’m still waiting for the third and final book to be released in paperback though!
The Mime Order
by Samantha Shannon
The Bone Season has quickly become one of my favourite series, so when The Mime Order was finally released in paperback this year, I devoured the story in no time. I can’t wait to see where this story goes with the third book release next year.
by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I’ve been wanting to read more SciFi lately so Illuminae was a great read for me. It’s another book that’s formatted in various ways, and I absolutely loved it!
by Marissa Meyer
I finally got round to reading the third book in The Lunar Chronicles series! This is my favourite in the series so far, but I haven’t read Fairest or Winter yet so that may change next year. But for now, here it is in my top 10.
The Name of the Wind
by Patrick Rothfuss
This is another one I read recently, just before Christmas. I feel like most fantasy lovers adore this book, mainly for how complex and full the story is. Well, I’m one of those fantasy lovers, so here it is on my list!
Are any of your favourites on this list?
