This was, in general, a terrible book year. I had a record number DNF, WTF, and generally horrendously bad books. From creepy ‘like a father to her’ relationship dynamic to books that were completely unoriginal and everything in between – it was gnarly going out there. So much swinging and missing! The level of “ok I guess” C rated books was also record high for me, and this just really bums me out!
Ah, but then I went sifting through the shelves and was pleasantly surprised to find that I had exactly ten fabulous recommend this book reads that released this year. So here is my list of top 10 (in no order) books that released in 2015, and a single sentence review/endorsement on why you might love each one of these as well.
Kate & the beast lord are everything.
This book is KA at her best, oh the feels and the flails.
One of best in recent history – so much love and Arrow feels.
He likes that she’s greedy for his cock. (review)
Our hero Cam does not swan; he strides about with masculine virile purpose. (review)
Black hearted criminal who would dismember any man that dares touch his lady love. (review)
Fake fiancé turns out to be a real brute of a highlander who demands she lift her skirts. (review)
Interesting new ye olde setting ‘magical’ PNR type series. (review)
Smexy panther shifter and super heroes for the win. (review)
Everything a fantasy series should be and 100% amazing.
So despite the disturbing uprising of lackluster or downright unreadable books I came across, there are still some amazing ones out there – and even better I see a lot on the horizon for 2016 that gives me a lot of hope that I will see a lot more excellent and exciting reading coming soon.
