  1. I am so happy that Illuminae is on your favorites list. I just started it today and I am enjoying it so far. Before I Fall was so incredibly good. I just purchased Daughter of Smoke and Bone and loo forward to reading it soon. Great list!

  2. I’m dying to read Illuminae, my top priority next year is to have that book in my arms! Also I want to read Dreamland, that book sounds so intriguing. There are a lot of books from your list that I want to read, hopefully I can get them by this year.

    Here’s my list of Best Reads of 2015! which I had a hard time narrowing down.

  3. ENSNARED!!! Yes!!! That made my top ten as well! It was soooo good! I had to ignore rereads too or else 5 spots on my list would have gone to Richelle Mead. LoL

    I desperately want to read The Cage!

  4. An Ember in the Ashes was awesome! I loved that in 2015 too. I got Illuminae for Christmas, so I’m super excited to start it! Everyone seems to love it, so hopefully I will too! I just started reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone too, and I’m loving it so far. Hopefully I might enjoy it as much as you did! :D

    Some other favourite books of 2015 of mine were Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock and Carry On. I could re-read them again and again, and they were amazing books.

    Best wishes for 2016! <3

    • Oh my goodness, I hope you LOVE Illuminae :) Daughter of Smoke and Bone gets better and better! I need to pick up Carry On…maybe this year. Best wishes to you, too!
