I fell 10 books behind on my Goodreads challenge of 155 books – I think if I had finagled the Goodreads system for rereads better I would have made it though! Oh well – on to 2016! I read some books I really loved this year so I’d say this Top Ten order is pretty random. Its also missing books that I also thought were amazing – like Mortal Heart, Invasion of the Tearling, Crimson Bound, Euphoria and Made You Up. Sigh. Maybe I should have done a top twenty list… These were my happiest or most thought provoking and just best reads of 2015.
- A Man Called Ove by Frederik Backman
- Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan
- Romantic Outlaws by Charlotte Gordon (also the longest book I read!)
- Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum
- All the Rage by Courtney Summers
- The Unquiet Dead by Ausuma Zehanat Khan
- The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
- Uprooted by Naomi Novik
- Dietland by Sarai Walker
I read about half as many books as I meant to in 2015, including 8 from Lauren Willig’s Pink Carnation series, 7/12 books from my TBR Challenge list, and 4 read-alongs with my sister (Persuasion, Invasion of the Tearling, Mortal Heart, & Romantic Outlaws). Here, in no particular order, are my favorite books that I read this year:
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling – Hurts soooooo good.
The Martian by Andy Weir – On audiobook, but I’m counting it because I loved it so much.
The Lords of Discipline by Pat Conroy – Not exactly light honeymoon reading, but definitely a gateway book into more Conroy.
MWF Seeking BFF by Rachel Bertsche – Young professional in a new city looking for her bestie? HIts a bit – er – close to home.
Persuasion by Jane Austen – The read-along was at least half the fun of reading this one!
I love reading lists- tell me your best reads of 2015! Happy New Year!
