Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

Posted December 14, 2015 by Cristina (Girl in the Pages) in Top Ten Tuesday, Weekly Features/Memes / 33 Comments

TTTcustombannerTop 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 nostalgia-inducing:


Most worthy of the hype:


Most likely to feed your royal addiction:


Most likely to divide readers between love and hate:

A Madness So Discreet

Most likely to engage readers in contemporary issues:


Most likely to make you sob on the inside:

Most likely to change your mind about a series:


Most likely to make you swoon:

  1. 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!

    • 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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. 🙂
