TOP TEN TUESDAY: Favourite Books So Far in 2015

Smaller Top Ten

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish once a week, and this week’s list is a freebie, so I decided to do a subject that I missed, and that is my favourite books I have read so far in 2015. This is in chronological order and used my list of books I have read so far this year which I have up on my blog (click here to check that out). I have reviewed a lot of these books so I’ll add the links to those reviews too.

Number one: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

This was a great and emotional read that I highly recommend. Here is my review for it if you want to check it out.

Number two: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Out of all of the books in the Hunger Games trilogy this my favourite. I know that’s strange as most people love the first book the most, but I find that this is just so interesting and I love how politics played a part in this. Quick question though: am I the only one who thought Mockingjay was only passable, and it would have been much better if it was two books and not one? Let me know what you think about this in the comments.

Number three: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

Gah! This book! Just read it! And click here if you want to see my review for it.

Number four: The Emancipation of a Buried Man by Eddy Gilmore

I was contacted by the author to read this book, and I really enjoyed it! It was so interesting and inspiring and I really suggest that you read it. Click here to see my review of it.

Number five: Every Day by David Levithan

I love the idea of this book, and, if you want a book that makes you think, I suggest this book. Click here to check out my review.

Number six: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

This is the sequel to The Bone Season and it is much better than the first book in the series. If you want a dystopian, paranormal read I recommend this series, specifically so you get to read this book. Here’s my review of The Mime Order and The Bone Season if you want to see what they’re about.

Number seven: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

If you want a good beauty and the beast retelling read this! It’s the first book in a series and it will leave you wanting more. Again, click here to read my review.

Number eight: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

I love the Throne of Glass series, but I didn’t just want to name all of the books, so I decided that this is probably my favourite in the series. I was stuck between this book and Queen of Shadows, but I think I prefer Heir of Fire just an ickle bit! Here’s my spoiler filled review of the entire series (minus Queen of Shadows) if you don’t mind me rambling.

Number nine: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

This is the first book in the Mistborn trilogy, which is a high fantasy trilogy filled with action, politics, three dimensional characters, and it is just brilliant! I have read the second book too, but I prefer the first. The second book is still great though!

Number ten: The Martian by Andy Weir

I love a good science fiction book which is both interesting and funny, and this definitely ticks both of those boxes. And, for the final time in this post, click here to check out my review for this book.

I have never hated the words ‘click’ and ‘here’ so much…

Anyways, what’s your favourite book of the year so far? Also if you have a Top Ten Tuesday post of your own leave the link for it in the comments so I can check it out.

Happy reading!

  1. I really need to read The Final Empire, I tried before but it was so intimidating. But I just picked up a physical copy of it so I want to try again.

    1. I can’t wait to see the movie adaptation! I’ve heard it’s quite funny, which is my favourite thing about the book so I’m glad they got that across.


  2. I agree, Mockingjay was definitely the worst out of the three books and it probably would have been better if it had been split into two books. I enjoyed ACOTAR, although not as much as everyone else seems to have. Love Heir of Fire, it’s my favourite book of the series so far, though I have not read Queen of Shadows or the prequel novellas yet, so that may change.

    1. I enjoyed ACOTAR more after I came back from seeing an interview Sarah J. Maas did, because then I realised new aspects to it which made me see it in a new light. I think you’ll enjoy Queen of Shadows and the prequel novellas as they are good and easily enjoyable.
