I can't believe I am already writing this blog post. It doesn't feel like I've had this blog for a whole year which is crazy! Do you know how hard it is to choose ust 10 books out of 125 (mostly amazing) books? Very hard. But somehow I managed to narrow it down so without further ado, here are my top ten books I read in 2015 in no particular order.
Beautiful Secret by Christina Lauren
Read in April 2015
This book is part of the Beautiful Bastard companion series, and it was a fantastic addition. This book was everything you could want in a New Adult romance, and more. I highly recommend this series (and this book) if you like romance and haven't read them already.
The DUFF by Kodi Keplinger
Read in January 2015
I loved this book. I loved the themes it dealt with and how they dealt with them. It also had a fantastic message that I think could benefit everyone. The movie on the other hand, was a terrible adaption. It was good on its own, but it doesn't compare at all to this book, and it just frustrates me because these film makers had such an amazing opportunity with this book, and they ruined it by trying to make it the next Mean Girls. But either way I freaking loved this book I highly recommend if you like YA contemporary.
The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
Read in July 2015
This book was so unique and I absolutely loved it. It is told in dictionary format and for each letter of the alphabet there was a word that related to this particular couples relationship. Through these dictionary definitions of their relationship, it told such an amazing story which I honestly don't even know how he did it. I recommend this to anyone, it's a very quick read that would take a couple of hours at the most, and you will love it.
Landline by Rainbow Rowell
Read in January 2015
This was the first book I read in 2015 and I'm so happy it made it to my top ten favourites of the year. I really thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a contemporary, but there's a magical touch to it that made the experience of reading it even better. It is an adult fiction book about a woman who decides to stay home for Christmas instead of going to her husbands parents place with him and their children. The husband decides to go anyway and takes the kids with him. She then stresses that their marriage is falling apart so she tries to call him on the Landline, but instead of getting her present day husband, she gets her husband from when they first met. It's really hard to explain, but trust me, it's an amazing book.
November 9 by Colleen Hoover
Read in November 2015
What can I say really? It's a Colleen Hoover book so it really goes without saying how amazing this book was. I loved the concept of this book. Fallon and Ben meet one night, and decide that they aren't ready to commit to a relationship, so instead decide to meet once a year on November 9 until they are ready. It sounds simple, but as it is a Colleen Hoover book you just know there's going to be some tragedy and a whole lot of feels!! Definitely check it out if you haven't already.
Surviving Ice by K.A. Tucker
Read in October 2015
This is a book that took me mostly by surprise I think. It's definitely not something I would normally read, but I did because it was for review and I am so damn glad I did!! This is such a fantastic example of a New Adult, but I loved that it wasn't just focused on the romance aspect of it, which made it that much more interesting. Definitely read it.
Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino
Read in September 2015
Ok I tell a lie, because I didn't expect to like this book either but again, I read it because it was for a review. But damn, I loved this book. I loved the way it was told and I loved the romance in it. I loved how it was similar to The Notebook in all the right ways. I loved the characters and I loved the setting. I just loved this book and I still think about it. I haven't seen many people talk about this book, and I don't understand why because it was freaking fantastic. If you want a really good NA novel, pick this one up ASAP.
Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
Read in October 2015
It seems like everyone and their dog has read and loved this book. I haven't heard one bad thing about it, and there's a reason for that. Because it's freaking amazing. This was just a really nice story about a summer road trip, and along the way they start to get to know each other more and more and then they reveal some stuff about each other. it's just a really cute YA, I can't explain it but I loved it and it gave me such a nice feeling while reading it.
To All the Boy's I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
Read in May 2015
It goes without saying but I really loved this book. This was just a really nice YA contemporary read about a girl who writes letters to all the boys she's ever "loved" in a way to get over them. Then one day the letters accidentally get sent out and the book just deals with everything that ensues after that. It was so addicting and I literally could not stop reading it. The second one was very disappointing though so I wouldn't really recommend reading the second to be honest.
The Selection by Kiera Cass
Read in July 2015
My final favourite!! For this I am considering this as the whole series. I never expected to love this book. It's definitely not the genre I normally read, but I did read it and I did love it. It almost seems like this book was written for me because it literally has everything I love in a book. It had romance, it had an awesome female character that I really liked, it had an awesome male character that I really really liked, it had twisty turny moments, it had some sad moments and some really happy moments. But most of all, it had an amazing romance aspect to it and I loved it!
