Top Books I Read in 2015

These are my favorites reads of 2015. These books are books that I read in 2015, not books that were published in 2015. I wanted to do something different, so I made my list in categories. 


I raved about the narrator of this book in my review. She truly made the characters come alive. This is one of those books that I wanted to reread it right after I fished it. This was my first Holly Black book, and now I know why so many people love her writing. 

This is the BEST audio book I have ever listened to! I have never heard a narrator who put so much emotion into her work. I honestly believed at times that she was hurt and in pain. Other times it sounded like she was truly crying. It was FANTASTIC!!!! The story in this book has something for everyone. Drama, action, love, suspense, everything. THIS IS THE BEST DEBUT BOOK OF THE YEAR FOR ME. 
Here is the thing about this book, I did not like the first book in this all. I know everyone loved it and raved about it, and I just could not get into it for the life of me. Then this book came out, and people who I trust their taste in books loved this book and recommended it. I cannot tell you how happy I am that I gave this book a chance! I fell into this world, from the first page i was hooked. The writing was beautiful, the world building was magical, and the main character was strong and independent. This book was perfection and gave me a new perspective of the author. 

When this book came out I cleared my schedule. I wanted to be able to do nothing but read this book. I devoured it! If you have been following my blog for awhile then you know my love for SJM is real. I really enjoyed seeing the world she built. Now everyone knows that she is not a one series wonder. She has so many creative and unique ideas. I cannot wait to see where this series goes. 
Here is a confession on this book, I was so excited for this book that I bought the actual book AND the audio book. I wanted to be reading it every second of the day. If I had time I would read the book, if I had to clean or run to the grocery store, I would listen to it. I just LOVED these books. The family dynamic is what did it for me in the first book, and while the family dynamic was still amazing in this second book, the love story got me this time. I just loved watching the characters grow and realize that not everything about love is black and white. 
BEST FUN READS (get you over a reading slump reads) 
This series is the best for a reading slump. They are fun, sexy, lighthearted, not hard to follow, angsty, everything you love from a great YA read. 
This is what would happen if the Lux series was an adult series. Oh how I LOVED this book. It was a fun take on the Lux series, and it was sexy......very sexy. Basically if you are not an adult I do not recommend you reading it. There are a lot of sexy times in this book, and they are very very detailed. If you loved the Lux series, and you are interested in new adult, this book is for you. 
There is not anything else to say about this book besides I LOVED it. Everything about this book was perfection. 

I am not going to go into detail since it was the last book in the series, but it was fantastic. 
I know a lot of people did not like this trilogy, but I LOVED it!! I marathon this trilogy and it was solely because I HAD to know what happened next. I can understand why people got frustrated with our main character, but I enjoyed how she was flawed. 

I was fascinated with this world and the power our main character had. This book showed me why everyone loves Snyder's writing. I plan on reading more of her books in 2016.

What were some of you favorite books of 2015? Let me know in the comments, or if you have made a post about it leave your link! 
happy reading y'all,

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This weeks Top Ten:Villains (favorite, best, worst, lovable, creepiest, most evil, etc.)
I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
