Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books I Read in 2015

Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday as hosted by the lovely peeps over on The Broke & The Bookish. Today’s topic is all about our top ten best books that we read this year.

For my list I’m basing the books I picked based off of my overall enjoyment of them, so that doesn’t necessarily mean they were 5 stars, but most of these probably were. So here is my list, in no particular order, of the best books I read this year:

  1. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas – This book was everything and more that I wanted from this series. Romance, action, blood, witches. It was amazing and definitely the best book in the series so far.
  2. This Shattered World and Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner – These two books blew me away and hit me right in the feels. I loved the world building, the relationships, the action, the mystery.
  3. Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi – The character arc in this series is incredible and definitely my favorite part about this series. And Warner. You know.
  4. The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater – The uniqueness of the plot, mixed with amazing individual characters, plus the magical elements, made for an amazing read.
  5. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – It made me laugh out loud – literally – and it made me want to cry happy tears. This book hit me SO HARD in the feels and I loved it.
  6. Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor – These two books are amazing in story, characters, setting, and more. Not only is this a unique spin on a fantasy tale to include chimera and angels together, but then throw in everything else going down? Holy carp, hell yes these two were two of the best books I read the whole year.
  7. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson – I love it so muuuuucchhhh. Romance, action, politics, deceit, loyalty, betrayal, and so much more. Amazing!
  8. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – Beautiful setting, intriguing characters, amazing plot line, and so much more, this book was everything I wanted and more.
  9. The Amazing Book is Not on Fire by Dan Howell & Phil Lester – The audiobook version was soooo hilarious, and I just love that these two really put in as much effort as they did for what they do. Kudos to them.
  10. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare – I just. I mean. I can’t. It was the perfect wrap up to the first three books and it had so much action, so many times that made my heart stop, so many times where I swooned and gushed and made all that weird noises. Yes.

Okay, I know that’s more than ten books, BUT I COULDN’T HELP IT. I loved all of these books so, so much, and this wasn’t even a complete list of the best books that I read or listened to.

What about you? What were the best books you read in 2015? How many did you have? Let me know!
