It's finally 2016!! I don't always say this about every year but I have a feeling 2016 going to be a fantastic year and I am so excited to see how it will unfold.
I wanted to do a top 10 favorites of 2015 post, but I was on Youtube and came across Bookadoodles's Bookish Academy Awards video and I thought it'd be better if I highlight my 2015 favorites this way so that you all will know exactly why I picked the books I did as my favorites. I did remove a few of the categories Bookadoodles had and renamed a couple of the categories to fit my books.
I did give myself a few rules so that I am able to feature more books: I cannot pick the same book in multiple categories (except for Best Book of the Year), and I can feature two picks for one category if they're from different genres.
Honorable Mention: Saga Vol. 1-5
My romance pick is Soulbound by Kristen Callihan, which was actually the 6th book in the series but the one started with. Of course I had to go back and read the earlier books because I fell in love with the dark, wet, foggy, shadowy Victorian London Ms. Callihan created and I wanted to know more about the faes, the lycans, the GIM and the other creatures with no easy labels.
Honorable Mentions: Elle Kennedy, Kristen Callihan
Let me know if we share similar favorites. Happy New Year everyone! May 2016 bring ALL the amazing books.
