They're also the books that don't get the attention they deserve---something I keep trying to change! (Some of these first in series are free on Amazon, so check 'em out!)
I have had an AMAZING book year though and am keeping my fingers crossed that next year will be even better for all of us book lovers :-)
(Book/series titles will take you to my reviews.)
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is:
Top Ten Books I Read in 2015
Because I think series are much more than the sum of their parts and wasn’t sure how to intermingle everything, I’ve separated my choices into three sections and cheated a bit by choosing twelve. So…
Top Single Books
4. The Usual Apocalypse by Christine Price
I loved both books in this M-M paranormal romance series, one for how emotional it was, the other for how funny, and both can be read as standalones.
3. Trailer Park Fae by Lilith Saintcrow
This urban fantasy is the first in a series, but the other books aren’t out yet. The writing style isn’t for everyone, but I thought it was beautiful, and the broken yet badass male protag cracked me up sometimes but also made me feel for him.
This fantasy retelling about how the sea witch came to be completely transported me to the AMAZING underwater world the author created. It’s part of a series but each book is like a standalone.
This M-M paranormal romance won’t be for everyone because it’s DARK and blood-drenched, but I completely loved it. This one is also part of a series but also works as a standalone.
Top Completed Series
This urban fantasy series was funny and quirky with great action and a female protagonist I LOVED for how intelligent, strong, and all around incredible she was.
This paranormal romance series has some of the best characters—you constantly want to smack them for disappointing you at the same time you want to hug them. It’s also hilarious and sexy with good plots.
This YA post-apocalyptic series had me on a rollercoaster of emotions (especially Books 2 & 3) and really made me think about what it means to be human.
I adored this whole M-M paranormal romance series. It was sweet and sexy, but it also had great action.
Top Ongoing Series
This YA urban fantasy is a fun and sometimes intense read that will really throw you around with it’s crazy twists and turns!
This YA urban fantasy/paranormal romance is a slower-paced one that really keeps you on your toes with intrigue, angst, unique characters, and an awesome protag.
2. INK Series (Books 0-4) by Bella Roccaforte
I am dying for the final book in this NA urban fantasy because WOW. Never before has a series made me this invested in characters, and each book really builds up on the others. This is the series that made me realize I like dark books and broken characters.
Book 1 in this YA urban fantasy series completely blew me away because it was PERFECT, and the rest of the series has also been amazing so far.
