Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Reads of 2015

Well folks, it's that time of year again! Time to say how fast this year has gone by and how many great books I've read during it. Here's a look at my favorites from this year. I highly recommend each and every one. 

Book Titles Link to Reviews! 

 

Historical fiction, feminist, paranormal, and a beautiful hard back 

Beautiful, beautiful, out of this world writing, and contains so. much. love. 

Hilariously witty, fun, and has so many great adaptations 

 

Diverse, feminist, action packed, heartfelt 

Political, steamy, fully developed world

Life Changing! 

 

Mindblowing! 
8. Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire, Elizabeth Wein
Heartbreaking yet full of so much hope, love, and strength 

 

Creepy, emotional, historical fiction, and WWI poetry! 

10. The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater 
Great characters, so much bromance you'll cry (happy tears), and magic

  7. CODE NAME VERITY. That book is amazing and so wonderful and sad and THAT BOOK. But I'm horrible and still haven't read ROSE UNDER FIRE or BLACK DOVE, WHITE RAVEN. THE WINNER'S CURSE is the one book I said I'd get read this year and I still haven't read it. And I always hear such wonderful things about Cat Winters's books but I've yet to read them.

  8. One of my oral reading students read an excerpt from Code Name Verity last year for the competition and she placed first! I still haven't gotten around to reading it, though...

    1. That's awesome! The writing is beautiful and the story is so emotional, it would be even more emotional to hear it out loud I think.
