Even though this is a bit late considering the fact that the first month of 2016 is already coming to an end, I still decided to share my top 5 favourite books of 2015. These books are in no particular order and I read them all for the first time last year so here they are!
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins is a contemporary novel about a seventeen year old girl named Anna who is sent to a boarding school in Paris where she meets a very swoon worthy boy named Etienne St.Claire, and it is about their relationship becoming possibly more than a friendship. I really, really loved this book and I gave it a 4.5/5 stars.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins is another contemporary novel about a girl named Lola, who realizes her first childhood love has moved back next to her and may even come between Lola and her current boyfriend. This book was also amazing and it was so adorable and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves feel-good books. I also gave this a 4.5/5 stars!
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabbaa Tahir is a fantasy novel that is set in an ancient fantasy atmosphere where a girl named Laia fights to save her brother from his prison. I found this book really refreshing and interesting and I just all around loved it! It is really unique considering that the military wears silver masks that eventually mold into their faces…anyway I gave this book a 5/5 stars. Highly recommend it.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancy is a sci-fi novel about a girl named Cassie who is one of the few survivors of an alien attack. She finds herself on an epic mission to save her younger brother, Sammy as she also battles to stay alive. I am not a huge science fiction lover but this book really changed the approach I took on them. This was just a great and funny novel that I would give 4/5 stars too!
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas is a very epic, high fantasy novel about an assassin named Celaena Sardothian who enters a competition to be the king’s assassin/champion in order to regain her freedom. This book was just fantastic. Sarah has such beautiful, descriptive writing and I connected so easily with Celaena because Sarah really made her feel like a 3D character. I defiantly give this book a 5/5 stars!
I read so many amazing books in 2015 it was really difficult to narrow it down to 5 but I am pretty sure the books I picked were the best I read. My goal was to read a total of 30 books (new books) but this year I am going to try and bump that up to 50 but this time instead of only new books it will just be all the books I read in general. Anyway that is all I will be saying for now and I will talk to you guys tomorrow when I post my new blog! 🙂
