Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 of 2015 so far!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish


Top Ten Tuesday

I have read 25 books so far this year, here are my top ten so far for 2015! Due to the fact that I just started my blog I only have reviews on one of these titles posted. I am hoping to post more reviews on these titles soon. :) 

I went ahead and made them into a collage, they are in no particular order. 




Listed in the order I read them...

1. Intuitive by Kat Fugate- I read Intuitive back in January, in fact it was one of my first reads of 2015. I absolutely LOVED this book, it's independently published and I highly recommend you get this! As a matter of fact it's free on Kindle! 

2. Alienated by Melissa Landers- The author Melissa had a launch party for the second book in the series Invaded that I attended back in February. This was my very first book signing, she is super nice! I loved Alienated, completely original idea of an alien exchange student. Really fun read! 

3. Until Midnight by Melissa Landers- This is a novella that is on Amazon for free. It takes place after Alienated but before Invaded. Very cute story of Cara & Aelyx! 

4. Invaded by Melissa Landers- Her sequel Invaded is just as good if not better than the first book in the series Alienated! Very fun series, I hope Disney/Hyperion goes ahead and lets her publish the third book in the series. 

5. The 5 Stages of Falling in Love by Rachel Higginson- So I absolutely love Rachel's writing and when I found out she was putting out a new book I knew I NEEDED to read it! The first book I read of her's was Reckless Magic which is YA. The 5 Stages book is an adult contempory, not usually my thing but I will read ANYTHING Rachel writes. I highly encourage you to read this, however hold on to your heart strings and have plenty of tissues handy! 

6. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard- So I read this book in March, I checked it out at my local library. It had a lot of hype, and boy did it live up to it! I will surely buying a hard cover of this baby soon, can't wait for Glass Sword to come out on February 2016! 

7. Uninvited by Sophie Jordan- I won this book in another author's bookclub on Goodreads. I hardly ever win anything so needless to say I very excited to read this! It's about a girl named Davy, her DNA brands her as a killer, she's on her way to Juillard to study music when her DNA test comes back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome. VERY VERY GOOD!! 

8. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover- This is my very first book that I have read by Colleen. I don't remember how I found out about her, I just knew she's ALL OVER THE INTERNET! I just love her writing, and the way she wrote Sydney & Ridge's story, made me feel so much! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

9. Velvet by Temple West- I think I picked up this book almost by accident. I was shopping at Kroger and happened to walk past the book section, of course I had to stop. ;) Well on the front cover there's a blurb that goes "First rule of dealing with vampire bodyguards? Don't fell in love." Well I'm a sucker for vampires, no pun intended! I have a review for this and will be adding the link here: Review for Velvet
The second book in The Velvet Trilogy is expected in 2016.

10. Rampant by Diana Peterfreund- I saved the best for last, this book blew me away! I actually picked this one up from Book Outlet for .49! It was published in 2009, my absolute favorite read so far in 2015! Here is part of the blurb: "Real unicorns are venomous, man-eating monsters with huge fangs and razor-sharp horns. Fortunately, they've been extinct for a hundred and fifty years. Or not." 
My review for Rampant. 
If you want to read about a kick ass female heroine then this book is for you! 

So, what are some of your favorites of the year so far?

All About That Cover: The Awakening (The Vampire Diaries #1) by L.J. Smith - An oldie but a goodie!

"All About That Cover" is a weekly feature that focuses on the differences between various book covers of the same book, such as cover changes, covers from different countries as well as special editions. 
Original Cover vs. TV tie-in edition


I don't know about y'all but I will always love the original cover. There's just something about YA book covers from the 90's. Notice the raven feather, too bad they didn't give Daemon shifting powers in the show!
