Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new top ten list and invite everyone to share their answers. This week’s topic is “Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015.”
A lot of the books I have read this year are children’s picture books. There are also about 8 part read books on my shelf at the moment. So, of the books that are longer than 50 pages and that I have completed, so far, this year, my favourites have been….
- Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes. Book 3 in the Falling Kingdoms series.
- A Place For Us by Harriet Evans. I read this in 4 parts, each part getting better and better. It flicks between different character’s perspectives to unravel the family secrets.
- The Selection Series by Kiera Cass. Not necessarily the most intricate plot or best writing style. But man was it addictive!
- Trouble by Non Pratt. A honest and frank telling of a teenage pregnancy, with real and relatable characters.
- One by Sarah Crossan. About conjoined twins.
- Me and Mr J by Rachel McIntyre – a difficult and taboo topic to write about, but done very well.
- The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson. I forgot that I read this in 2015, as I completed it in early January. Quirky and eccentric, but a brilliant read.
