The topic of this Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Best Books I Read In 2015.
This year I’ve decided to go month by month. Because what’s the point of all the random listmaking I do if I don’t get to play around with the stats? So, flagrantly disregarding the ‘ten’ thing, because I read way too much to narrow this down.
The best book I read in January was:
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black, The Persian Boy by Mary Renault.
The best book I read in February was:
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein.
The best book I read in March was:
The Girls From Corona del Mar by Rufi Thorpe
The best book I read in April was:
The Man Who Touched His Own Heart by Rob Dunn, Romantic Outlaws by Charlotte Gordon
(a nonfiction double feature!)
The best book I read in May was:
Jackaby by William Ritter
The best book I read in June was:
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein.
The best book I read in July was:
Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt
(Cause WINTER. Ah, this is my favorite Maiden Lane book by leaps and bounds. I still have a few to get through, but I think it will stay on top.)
The best book I read in August was:
A Week to Be Wicked by Tessa Dare, Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
The best book I read in September was:
Wolf Winter by Cecilia Ekback
The best book I read in October was:
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, Simon. vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
The best book I read in November was:
City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett
The best book I read in December (so far? I think I still have one or two books left in me, as I’m home all alone for Christmas) was:
Police by Jo Nesbo
I think the biggest surprise in this is how much YA is on this list. I didn’t realize I was reading so much YA, much less how much I have been enjoying it. But the YA books I did read were good. Good enough to edge out a ton of other great books.
What made your best list?
