Here are my top 12 books of 2015! I haven't gotten around to reviewing all of them, and I've been focusing more on my young adult reviews. I highly recommend that you check all of these out if you haven't already. I prefer not to make separate lists for new releases and backlist books, because I tend to read a mix of both. Here are my favorites of the year.
This was a fantastic follow up to Seraphina. I absolutely love the world Hartman has built and the characters she's created. Shadow Scale gave me so many feels.
I enjoyed Grave Mercy, and Dark Triumph absolutely blew me out of the water. The plot was fantastic and I loved learning more about Sybella's character. I also swooned a lot over Beast.
An early chapter book that I found absolutely heartwarming.
Soulless, but I just thought that Changeless hit the nail on its head with its humor and storyline. I loved all of the devices Carriger included and the fact that I was left wanting more once I put this one ended.
Roller Girl is probably the most fun graphic novel that I've ever read. It's a vibrant story about roller derby, determination, and friendship.
To be fair, I think of Gay's novel as a feminism primer. I've always thought of myself as a feminist, but Bad Feminist made my feminism much more intersectional. I really liked the fact that some of the essays included personal anecdotes, because I think personal experiences often lead people to become feminists.
Winter (which I'm working my way through now) until you've checked out Fairest.
So those are my favorite books that I read in 2015! I highly recommend checking them out if you haven't already. I want to know what your favorite books of the year were, so let me know in the comments below!
