Favorite Books of 2015

My top ten books of 2015 in no particular order. 

 

1. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

The Nightingale - Kristin HannahIt's unusual for an adult book to be in my favorites but I loved this story about two                sisters trying to surviving World War II. 

 

2.The Remedy by Suzanne Young

The Remedy - Suzanne Young

Another addition to The Program series. And Suzanne Young does this world so well. I can't wait until the next one. 

 

3. Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

Lair of Dreams - Libba Bray

This was my most anticipated book of this year and while its not as good as the Diviners I still loved it. Its spooky, has the air of magic and desperation. I loved every minute of this audio book. And man a cliffhanger. 

 

4. Illuminae by Aimee Kaufman and Jay Kristof

Man, this is the most original science fiction young adult I have read. And its brilliant and appropriately the most talked about book in 2015. A must read. 

 

5. Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles) - Marissa Meyer

A gut wrenching ending to the anticipating Lunar Chronicles. My longest read at over 800 pages, but still enjoyable and well worth the wait!
