Hello! Today for Top Ten Tuesday, I’m discussing the Top Ten Books I Read in 2015. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme brought to us by the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. So far this year, I have read 32 books (check out which ones I’ve read here). And being that there are still a couple of weeks left in the year, I may add a few more books to this list. But as I don’t think this will change much here are the Top Ten Books I Read in 2015.
10. Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
I read all three books in the Miss Peregrine trilogy this year (the first was a re-read for me, otherwise it would have this place on the list). Hollow City was a really exciting and intriguing book for me. It introduced a bunch of new characters and the stakes were high throughout.
9. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
I fell in love with this exciting Zombie novel that takes place in early 20th century Boston. With hints of steampunk and a while lot of magic, this book (and the 2nd book in the trilogy far exceeded by expectations).
8. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancy
I’d meant to read this book for a while, but I really enjoyed it when I did. This action packed novel makes you wonder what you would do if you were in situations similar to those of the main characters and draws you in with their internal struggles.
7. Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
Blue Lily, Lily Blue is the 3rd book in The Raven Cycle series. I liked that this novel took us into deeper, darker places than the first two books and we learned more about the main characters.
6. Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
I loved the whole Heroes of Olympus series and I feel that for the most part this was a wonderful finale to the series. It was action packed and interesting and each of the character’s stories came to a satisfying close.
5. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I went into reading this novel knowing little next to nothing about the plot and was thrilled to see that it was a retelling of Beauty and the Beast (albeit a loose retelling). The world was beautiful and magical and the end of the book really threw me for a loop. This is another series that I am eagerly awaiting the next book from.
4. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
We’ve all heard bubble boy or girl stories, but this one is so unique. The main character’s voice was so refreshing and funny despite her circumstances. I couldn’t put this book down and read it within 24 hours.
3. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I loved this book and how they described each of the parallel worlds and the relationship that each had with magic. The two main characters were fun and interesting to read about and I can’t wait to read more of their stories!
2. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
The Throne of Glass books have been all over my blog this past year and honestly, I would talk about them more if I could! I loved each book in the series, and Queen of Shadows was one of the most intriguing and exciting books I read this year. Let’s consider #2 the whole series, because they would all be on here otherwise.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Okay, so it’
