Best Books of 2015

It’s almost 2016, and that means that it’s time for a round-up of the best books I’ve read over the past year. As of the writing of this post, I have read a total of 32 books this year, which means more selection than ever for my Best Of list.

Once again, the list is a mixture of old and new titles; the only requirement is that I will have first read the book in 2015. There are also a few runner-ups this year, because some I felt some of the books I didn’t select deserved extra attention nonetheless.

And my last note before I start my list is that there is no winner in the Best Fiction category. This is because, aside from books I read as part of my job, I didn’t actually read any non-genre or non-YA fiction this year. I’ll have to do better in 2016!  And now, on to the list. . .

Best Overall: Uprooted by Naomi Novik


Best Fiction: n/a

Best Nonfiction: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
Runner Up: Just My Type by Simon Garfield

Best Fantasy: Uprooted by Naomi Novik


Best Science Fiction: Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
Runner Up: Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie

Best Young Adult: Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs


Best YA Fiction: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
Runner up: Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando

Best YA Science Fiction or Fantasy: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell


Best Cover: Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer

    1. Ahh, sorry for such a late reply. I liked Everything, Everything. It’s not the most believable book, but it had lots of cute, romantic moments in it that made up for the plot twists.
