This year I'm very happy to once again join in the Top 10 of 2015 week hosted by Rachel from Reading YA Rocks, Jamie from Two Chicks On Books, Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads and Nancy of Tales of A Ravenous Reader.
We're gonna start the week right, with our Top 10 Best Books we've read this year. They don't have to have been published this year, but they must have been read this year.
Since there have been so many books and choosing just 10 is gonna be tough, I decided to list here only those that weren't debuts, and then on Wednesday I'll share my Top 10 Debuts of 2015, so I'll have another 10 awesome books that I loved this year. Not only that, I'm only choosing those that were published on 2015 that I've read on 2015! And it will still be a struggle...
Best Books I've Read on 2015
For this top 10 I've decided to stick only to YA books and at the end I'll be adding some honorable mentions of adult books I've loved! All the books in this list were 5 stars for me! (yes, I have indeed cheated, it is a top 15, but I couldn't take any of these from the list!).
And now for some honorary mentions that do deserve as much praise and love and these 15 previous ones!
- Every Word & Every Move by Ellie Marney - This whole trilogy is one of my fave recent reads, and as a comtemporary retelling of Sherlock Holmes, I have ALL THE LOVE FOR IT! Release days are different for AUS & UK than for US, so many of my friends are still waiting for the final book. That's mainly the reason why I had these two here together instead of in the main list, confusing release dates!
- Written in Red, Murder of Crows & Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop - I read the whole series when I was approved for Vision in Silver via NG and holy crow, had I been missing out!! I'm already planning a re-read before Marked in Flesh next year!! Adult paranormal books and one of my new absolute fave series!
- The Bollywood Bride by Sonali Dev - Adult romance set in India and US, absolutely loved it to bits! Which is quite saying something given that I am not a big romance reader.
- When A Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare - This year I started reading a lil bit more of historical romance on my friend Alyssa from The Eater of Books recommendation, and I absolutely adored this one!
There are many other amazing books I've read that were published this year but I was lucky enough to read early, so I didn't include them in this list. And I always feel awful having to pick and choose, even when I cheat!
