My Favorite Books of 2015

Last year, I set a goal to read 30 books. In the end, I actually read 27 books. Not bad considering I also worked full-time, wrote a few drafts of my first book, was an editor for a pop culture website, and had a personal life outside all of that.

Even though I read close to 30 books last year, there were only a few that stood out. Here are my 10 favorite books I read last year:

Top 10 Books 2015

Out of all those, four were young adult fiction (historical/fantasy), five were adult fantasy, and one was cross-marketed as young adult / adult science fiction (Red Rising).

That ratio definitely fits in with my normal reading style: I read about half young adult and half adult fiction, usually fantasy or science fiction. I enjoy some historical and contemporary novels, but my heart lies with fantasy and sci-fi. Its also interesting to note that six out of ten of those books were new reads for me, while four were re-reads.

What were your favorite books from 2015? Did you set yourself a goal? Did you meet it (or not)? What about this year?

What book(s) are you most looking forward to this year? Let me know!
