One of our favorite things to do every holiday season is to reflect on what we've read during the year. Here are our top picks for 2015.


Best book that I can't believe I didn't know existed until this year – ROOFTOPPERS by Katherine Rundell

Made me see the world differently – THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST by Holly Black

When I finished this, I instantly went back to the beginning for a re-read – THE ACCIDENT SEASON by Moira Fowley-Doyle

Favourite – NIMONA by Noelle Stevenson

Rooftoppers The Darkest Part of the Forest The Accident Season Nimona


BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY by Ruta Sepetys – This book is slug me in the gut good.

DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS by Laini Taylor – Looove this book, this series, this writer. Manically love it!

CODE NAME VERITY by Elizabeth Wein – Amazing.

Between Shades of Gray Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3) Code Name Verity (Code Name Verity, #1)


A fantastic adventure that kind of flew under the radar (pun intended) – BLACK DOVE WHITE RAVEN by Elizabeth Wein

A haunting tale (pun intended) of fierce friendships – THE WALLS AROUND US by Nova Ren Suma

Heart-wrenching, well-written, thoughtful, and timely (no puns for this one) – CONVICTION by Kelly Loy Gilbert

Black Dove, White Raven The Walls Around Us Conviction


INKHEART by Cornelia Funke
 – I put off reading this for so long because the movie was so mediocre. But the book is beautifully written.

NIGHTBIRD by Alice Hoffman – Magical Middle Grade that made me crave pie. A lot.

THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir – Science Fiction often lacks heart, but this book had so many characters that made me fall in love unexpectedly.

Inkheart (Inkworld, #1) Nightbird The Martian
