Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is perhaps the most important of the year, choosing 10 of the 70 books I’ve read for the illustrious category of “best books I’ve read in 2015.” I’ve decided to not only list the ten best books I’ve read this year (in no particular order), but give them superlatives as a nod to their greatness.
Most likely to encourage you to be yourself:
Most worthy of the hype:
Most likely to feed your royal addiction:
Most likely to divide readers between love and hate:
Most likely to engage readers in contemporary issues:
Most likely to make you sob on the inside:
Most likely to make you believe in miracles:
Most likely to change your mind about a series:
Most likely to make you swoon:
Tags: best books of 2015, Top Ten Tuesday
I am most intrigued by A Madness and So Discrete because of its potential to divide readers, I have to say. Off to check it out on Goodreads.
My top ten list is here, if you’re interested: http://www.bookpunks.com/year-books-best-books-2015/
People definitely have strong opinions about this one! It has a lot of darker themes, but the plot was extremely interesting!
You got me at swoon! Lol. Love the way you’ve done your list. I want to check out Immaculate now.
My list is here: https://lipsyy.wordpress.com/2015/12/15/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-books-of-2015-ttt/
Thank you! Have you read ACOTAR yet? Also I’m glad immaculate sounds intriguing to you, I think it’s well written yet very under-represented!
Love how you did the superlatives too! I just finished Crown of Midnight and so enjoyed it!!! I want to read so many others on this list – especially Fairest, ACOTAR and A Madness So Discreet. Great list!
I actually LOVED ACOTAR in a way that I haven’t quite fallen in love with the Throne of Glass series yet, so if you enjoy the TOG books I’m pretty sure you’ll love this new series by Maas too!
Great list! Fairest just missed out on a place in my list but I did love it, and Dumplin’ and A Madness Most Discreet are both books I want to check out. 🙂
Oh I really think you’ll like (or at least have strong feelings about) A Madness So Discreet. I highly recommend checking it out!
ooohh I love the way you structured this!! so creative 🙂 I really need to read The Royal We, it’s been on my list for a long time! Crown of Midnight and A Court of Thorns and Roses are two favorites as well 🙂
Here’s my ttt!
YES to The Royal We. It’s SO good, especially if you love the whole William/Kate courtship. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
I just got A Madness So Discreet from my TBTB Santa, and I can’t wait to read it. But your superlative kind of makes me nervous. I know you liked it – have a lot of other people not liked it?
I’ve seen really strong reactions to it either way, and I think a lot of it has to do with the darkness of the story and the controversial subject matter. I think it was really interesting and while hard to read at times, a well written and compelling novel.
Of these, I’ve only read Fairest. I need to read some of these others.
Fairest is my favorite book out of the entire Lunar Chronicles series! I personally think it is better than Winter!
Wow. I don’t think I’ve heard that from anyone before. I like Fairest, but not as much as Scarlet, Cress, and Winter.
I love the superlatives!
Thank you, Ashley!
Ah, TWO Sarah J. Maas titles on your list? WHAT A WONDERFUL THING! I also love The Wrong Side of Right shoutout!
Sarah is amazing, and officially one of my favorite authors now! (Though the list is in no particular order this week, ACOTAR is TRULY my favorite book from 2015).
[…] Girl in the Pages […]
Tons of fabulous books on one list! I love how you gave them all superlatives, too. I really enjoyed Just One Day, though I was not as enchanted by its sequel. I’m still a huge Gayle Forman fan, though. A Madness so Discreet looks fabulous. I’d never heard of it until now. Fantastic list!
Also, this is the first time I’ve stumbled across your blog, and I just think it is adorable. It’s really simple, yet girly. I’m not sure how to describe it, but I love it! You’ve definitely got yourself a new follower.
Thank you so much for the kind words, Lefty! I am so appreciative of the comment and the follow! I look forward to chatting more about books with you soon!
ACOTAR made my list this week too! And back when I read Crown of Midnight that would have made my list for the year too obviously. SO MUCH LOVE for SJM ♥ Fairest is a good pick too, I’m planning on reading Winter real soon 😀 I still need to read Dumplin’ and A Madness So Discreet but hopefully soon. Awesome picks Cristina^^
I think you will really enjoy A Madness So Discreet! I was extremely impressed by the SJ Maas novels I got to this year, and while the list this week was truly in no particular order, I really did love ACOTAR more than any other book this year!
I love how you set up your list. Most of these are on my TBR that I’m hoping to get to them soon. Great picks Cristina!
Thank you so much, Tina! The idea just struck me that it would be a fun and brief way to explain WHY each book stood out to me this year!
I still need to read Dumplin’, thanks to your review, I’ve added it to my TBR. Your description of A Madness So Discreet actually makes me want to read the book more. I wonder where I will fall. I do swoon with A Court of Thorns and Roses, I must prepare myself emotionally before the next book’s release. Nice list, Cristina!
I was really intrigued by A Madness So Discreet. Despite never being a fan of the genre, I enjoyed the spookiness of the story. AND THAT COVER!
And you’re so right about Crown of Midnight! That’s where I changed my mind about the series – though my love for it lessened by later books.
I just reread A Court of Thorns and Roses and I completely agree with the swoon-worthy! It was just so so so good, definitely up there in my favorites too! I keep hearing really good things about Dumplin recently and I’m very intrigued. Hopefully I get to read it soon. 🙂
I must admit that the second I finished ACOTAR I immediately went back and reread my favorite scenes! I am beyond excited for A Court of Mist and Fury!
There were so many great books that I read this year so this week’s topic was so hard and yet so easy to do at the same time! lol Royal Wedding and ACOTAR made my list as well. 😀
Royal Wedding was AMAZING. Have you read her Mediator series? She’s doing an adult installment of that series as well!
So great,. I am looking forward to reading WOlf by Wolf and Dumplin’. Dumplin’ would be a perfect light read.
