Again, a bit of a disclaimer: These are books that I have read in the year 2015, not books that were published in 2015. Re-reads do not count. The liking and enjoyment of books is something very personal; a book may be flawed but if it had an impact on me when I read it, then it is deserves a spot in my favourites of the year.
- The Martian by Andy Weir
- Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike #3) by Robert Galbraith
- The Hollow Boy (Lockwood & Co. #3) by Jonathan Stroud
- I, Robot (Robot #0.1) by Isaac Asimov
- Ender’s Shadow (Ender’s Shadow #1) by Orson Scott Card
- The Three-Body Problem (Three-Body #1) by Cixin Liu
- A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R.R. Martin
- Ancillary Justice (Imperial Radch #1) by Ann Leckie
- Solaris by Stanislaw Lem
- Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie / Dracula by Bram Stocker
Dear me! So many books that are part of series!
The funny thing is, 2015 is the year I have read the most. EVER. Well… Actually, it is the biggest year in terms of things read, but not in terms of pages read; so do what you will with this information. But for some reason, few books really stand out to me. Was it just a “meh” reading year for me (quality wise)? Did I become a lot more picky on what makes me like books? I don’t know. There are still a lot of books on my shelf that I have not read yet because I waited for “the right time” to do so. So who knows? Maybe The Name of the Wind will become an instant favourite, or Leviathan Wakes, or any number of books that I own but haven’t got around to read in 2015.
