Top Ten Best Books I Read in 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. I'm actually doing last week's topic, because at the time I thought it was a bit premature for a Top 10 of the Year list. It still is, but I actually want to do next week's topic next week. So here it is!

These are my favorite books that I read for the first time in 2015. (I had some 5-star re-reads on my list but I'm not counting those.)

1. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

2. The Likeness by Tana French

3. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

4. Unbecoming by Rebecca Scherm

5. The Selection series by Kiera Cass (I'll count the whole series as one.)

6. Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics

7. Delicious Foods by James Hannaham

8. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis

9. The Bees by Laline Paull

10. The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins

And as I keep looking at my list I see many more that I want to include but I'm making myself stop. These were the first ones I saw when glancing through my list so I'm sticking with them!

What were your favorite books this year? Did you read any that were on my list?

Well I'm happy to see "The Likeness" on your list! It was actually on my Santa-please-deliver list for today, and in a lovely twist of fate one of my friends sent it to me for Christmas and it arrived yesterday!

"Doomsday Book" has been on my to-read list for a while. Maybe I'll try to get to it next year! I've really been feeling more fantasy-type stuff lately and you can't go wrong with time travel! I've also been thinking about reading the Kiera Cass books. I see them circulate all the time at the library. But I can only handle so much YA, and there are several series I'm contemplating giving a try. We'll see what ends up making the cut! ;)

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on The Likeness and Doomsday Book. They are both sooooo good!

I really enjoyed The Library at Mount Char. It was definitely an interesting read. Hope you get all of your Christmas wishes.

Nice list! I would still like to read The Woman in White. I hope you have some of these bookish goodies under the tree. Merry Christmas.
