Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is a Top Ten Best Books I Read in 2015. While doing this, I realized that I didn’t give a lot of 5-stars rating to books this year, but a lot of 4-stars… Well, I don’t know if I’m being difficult, or whatever, haha! Anyways, let’s check out some of my favorites this year! And don’t forget to click on the title of the books to read their fabulous synopsis!
1 • Emmy & Oliver, Robin Benway
I completely fell in love with this book. It was, so, so good, partly because it has everything I love (childhood friends, disappearances, a big place for family, AMAZING friendships), and partly because, well, it was just, SO GOOD.
2 • Vanishing Girls, Lauren Oliver
I’m a big fan of Lauren Oliver’s work, so this year I was looking forward to reading her new novel. And, as always, I wasn’t disappointed. A ride you need to be ready for, but it’s definitely worth it!
3 • Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Becky Albertalli
Usually, I’m a little scared about books like that. I mean, books with A LOT OF HYPE. Thankfully, Simon didn’t disappoint. It’s the kind of book that got you smiling from page one, and where you’ll want to be best friends with the characters.
4 • Just Visiting, Dahlia Adler
This is my first Dahlia Adler book, and I loved every part of it. The whole going-away for college thing, the friendship at stake, the diverse characters and the story that just feels so real. Go read that right now.
5 • More Than This, Patrick Ness
Patrick Ness, one of those authors we just keep hearing about, these days, these months. Why, you’re asking? Well, read a book now to figure that out. He’s completely one of a kind, and the book I read for now, More Than This, reminded me of why I love reading so much.
6 • The Beginning of Everything, Robyn Schneider
This year introduced me to Robyn Schneider, and I’m so, SO glad it did. I read both of her works, but The Beginning of Everything is my favorite. Ezra is such a great, REAL character. If you love contemporary, this book is a must.
7 • Ignite Me, Tahereh Mafi
I don’t know what to say about this book. It marks the end of a wonderful trilogy, and a poetic journey with Tahereh Mafi’s words. Unlike any other, she manages to make me FEEL things with her words to a whole other level. It’s so, so good.
8 • Vendetta, Catherine Doyle
For a debut, well Vendetta is pretty damn good! I really liked the twist that this story took. Without spoiling everything, I think this is the kind of book that stands out from the others.
9 • Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins
It’s about time I read Anna and the French Kiss, and, I did. It was such a refreshing, sweet contemporary story, and I’m so happy that I finally discovered this book. If you love sweet contemporary romances, then what are you waiting for?
10 • Unchanged, Jessica Brody
I loved the Unremembered series by Jessica Brody, and this final installment did not disappoint, at all. Fast-paced action, crazy roller coaster ride, well, that’s all I was asking for! If you love sci-fi, check out this series right away!
