2015 recap and suggestions

First things first…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!

Yep, I’m a NYE baby, so I’m kind of partially biased to New Year’s Eve being the best holiday. It’s neat having a birthday on NYE since the next year of life starts with a brand new year completely.

In 2015 I plan to make more time for reading. I did a LOT of slacking this year- especially on my blog- but I’m hoping to be a lot more consistent this year.

But on to the books…I want to talk about my favorite reads from 2015!

Top Reads from 2015:

These aren’t necessarily in any particular order…I tried and it was too hard to do.

So…

wrathandthedawn

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve recommended Wrath and the Dawn. I got it at work and have several kids hooked on it. We’re all anxiously awaiting Rose and the Dagger.

This. Book.

It is hard to explain how I feel about this book. It made me happy, furious, confused, shocked…pretty much every emotion. I’m SO excited for the next installment and can’t wait for the movie to get started.

2015 is the year that I fully embraced how much I adore contemporary romance in YA. I’ve always been a sci-fi/fantasy fan, and still am, but this year I read so many contemporary and romance books that I decided it must be my thing too.

I loved Every Last Word. LOVED. I bragged on it so much that a friend was dying to read it and in turn was ecstatic to get an ARC from Tamara at RT back in May. (FYI, Tamara is the sweetest ever. If you get the chance to meet her then don’t miss out!)

I know that I just recently reviewed this, but here’s your reminder….Everything Everything is EVERYTHING. Wrath and the Dawn was my favorite book of the year from June all the way to last week and then this book happened. SO GOOD. Get it.

MY FAVORITE SUPERHERO FINALLY GETS RECOGNITION!

That’s my thoughts on this one. Actually it’s more like “alsdkjfioea yasssss, Natasha!!” LOVE. HER. Marvel still won’t make a Black Widow movie, but this book would make a perfect movie. Get on it, Marvel.

This was my first Emery Lord book and I’m now hooked. Plus, the guy in the book is a nerd who is obsessed with Firefly? Yes, please!

A review is coming on this soon since it doesn’t release until March, but…MAN. So fun. I can’t wait for this to come out so that I can shout it’s praises even more!

november9

I’m a major Colleen Hoover fan. I don’t try to hide it. I read November 9 in one day and got completely sucked in. This might be my favorite book from her, but it definitely was among my favorite reads of the year.

23719270

A western. I never thought I’d love a Western, but I was hooked. Plus, this definitely wins my vote for best book cover of 2015- hands down- it is GORGEOUS.


I feel like I should add one more just for the sake of having a top 10, but I can’t necessarily keep this in the same league.

HOWEVER….

You can’t read it without having read the rest of the series, but WINTER was one of my favorite reads of the year and a perfect finale to the Lunar Chronicles!


So there you have it…my top 10 favorite books I read in 2015. There were several more that were close to being added that just barely missed out, but these were my favorites by far.

Here’s to 2016 being just as strong of a year for book releases!
