I have yet to read my favorite book of 2015. Putting together this list was really hard because I haven't felt super wow/in love with my many books so far this year. I mean, I almost put a novella here (Jennifer E. Smith's Happy Again), and I had to mention more than one book from a series because otherwise this list wouldn't have ten books. (Note: I have yet to read Mortal Heart, shame on me.) An honorable mention should go for a book I didn't exactly read: the audiobook version of Code Name Verity (read it last year), which was just sensational. I definitely liked all the books on this list--the first five probably have my highest ratings of the year so far and the majority of the very few five (and even four and up?) star ratings I've given. There's a certain Beauty and the Beast retelling on this list by a favorite favorite author, and I highly doubt it will make my top ten list at the end of the year, and it really only made this one because I didn't know what else to put. (And that super sucks.) In short: I have most definitely liked and really, really liked a lot of books this year. (But I'm like nine books behind on my Goodreads goal so shush.) But I have loved or been wowed (by a book as a whole, not just certain scenes) by very few books, and that's a total bummer. Get on it, 2015 releases. You have six months.
What books are you favorites so far this year?
