Top Ten Tuesday (35) : Top Ten Best Books I Read in 2015

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!

Did you read any of those books? What did you think about it? What are YOUR favorite books this year?! Let’s chat in comments!  💬

  1. Emmy & Oliver is a book that I still need to read! It was one of my highly anticipated books of the year and I never got around to it. 😦 I really want to pick up More Than This again. I don’t think I gave it a fair chance the last time I tried to read it. Great list!

    1. Aw, that’s too bad! 😦 There’s always so many books to read, so it’s understandable, ahah 🙂 I hope you’ll read it next year, and love it! 😀 I understand that you’d stop reading More Than This, I have to admit that I was so confused at the beginning of this story. But it’s definitely worth it! 🙂
      Thank you so much Ashley! ❤

  2. I actually haven’t read any of these. I have them all on my TBR list, but I’m just so far behind…These are all great picks though, and I’ve seen Simon pop up on quite a few lists so far. It must be super good! Thanks for sharing! Here’s my TTT. Happy reading!

  3. I’m so happy to see so many contemporary titles on your favourites list! I know I say this every week but I’m hoping to read Emmy & Oliver in the next few weeks. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about it from you and other bloggers that I trust. I can’t wait to dive in and experience it for myself!

  4. I promise to get to More Than This once I get through some “priorities” on my TBR! I read the synopsis and it’s just so enticing 🙂

    I love that you love Anna and the French Kiss. Is there really a school called SOAP there? I’d do anything to experience studying in France 🙂

    1. Yaay, it really is! That’s what made me want to pick up this book in the first place. I hope you’ll love it! 😀
      There’s a school called The American School of Paris, but if I remember correctly, it’s in the suburbs! 🙂
      Aw, well, being a student, I can tell you that there are ups, and downs, haha :p


  5. AHH. So many great, fabulous books Marie! ❤ I absolutely loved Vanishing Girls, Emmy & Oliver and Ignite Me as well, so I’m glad to hear you enjoyed them too. xD Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post!

  6. I see lots of contemporary on this list and I have to say that makes me so HAPPY! Sometimes contemporary gets a bad rap, but I think that’s because they aren’t reading the right contemporary. I’ve been wanting to read Just Visiting since I initially heard about it.
    I just read Shatter Me this year but have not had the chance to continue into the next books in the trilogy. This past summer I read Anna, Lola and I have Isla sitting on my TBR shelf. I need to read it and finish the companion series!
    Also just wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog. Hope to see you again soon 🙂

    1. Yaay, thank you so much Gwendolyn! 😀 I have to agree with you on that, there are so many great contemporary books out there 🙂
      I really hope you’ll continue reading the Shatter Me series, it’s one of my favorites! Aw, I only read Anna for now, but maybe I will pick out the rest of this series, since I really loved it! 😀
      You’re welcome, thank you for stopping by! I hope so, too!! 😀


  7. Ooooh IGNITE ME! I love that book! And Emmy & Oliver was SO good! I also really liked Vanishing Girls which was so close to making my list, but I had to cut it off somewhere 😉 I’d really like to read Vendetta and Simon too! Great list!
