Top 5 Wednesday: Top 5 Books I Read in 2015



Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by the booktuber, Lainey aka gingereadslainey. You can find the topics and the Goodreads page of the book meme here.

YAYAYAYAYAY!! I was waiting for this one. So when I did the Top 10 Tuesday – Best ‘Scifi and Scary’ Books I 2015 – I really restricted it with the addendum of they had to be published in 2015 also. That made it somewhat difficult.

This list, though, is purely the best books I’ve read this year, and yes, they are in order starting with least favorite to most favorite. However, considering I’ve read over 180+ books, even number 5 is still pretty good!

Okay, okay, here we go!


The Kalbrandt Institute Archives: Book I: Hauntings

5. The Kalbrandt Institute Archives: Book 1: Hauntings by Chris Chelser – I’ve linked this one to Goodreads, whereas the others got linked to my reviews, simply because my review for The KIA Bk1 isn’t due out until February!




I Came to Find a Girl



4. I Came to Find a Girl by Jaq Hazell  – I still remember the heavy feeling I had in my gut reading this book. It really stuck with me, and was a fantastic read.



The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1)



3. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

“Need a poo, Todd” – Dammit, Manchee!




Bird Box


2. Bird Box by Josh Malerman

Fantastic, fast-paced, evil-never-seen, best horror book I read in 2015!




…and number 1. Okay, do I seriously even need to say it? Anyone who has followed my blog for any length of time should be able to guess that my

Number One Book I Read in 2015 is 

The Martian by Andy Weir

  1. Ah, yes. The Knife of Never Letting Go is a literary masterpiece, and it needs to be read by everyone everywhere. I have the Martian on my shelf, and I can’t wait to get to it! Great post! x

    1. Yeah. That was rough.

      Question: I’ve recently been making some changes to my site (re-ordering stuff at the sides, making links stand-out, etc), does everything still look easy to navigate??

    1. I really like Chaos Walking Bk 1, and A Monster Calls had me in tears, but his More Than This book.. It took over a hundred pages before it ‘hooked’ me. So like any author he’s got some fantastic work and some not so fantastic stuff.
