My Favourite Books of 2015

51x34awbjkl-_sx323_bo1204203200_1. Did I Mention I Love You? by Estelle Maskame

I had just finished reading DIMILY when I started to edit this list and I knew I had to add this fab book. I couldn’t put it down, and am now desperate to read the second book in the series! My review should be posted sometime next week.

 

51hr3wsrkrl-_sx331_bo1204203200_2. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

I adored everything, absolutely everything about this book. If Nicola Yoon ever writes anything else, I will be the first to buy it! Also, I have to mention the cover design which is gorgeous- it really draws you in.

 

5184qoacicl-_sx325_bo1204203200_3. One by Sarah Crossan

As I finished this breathtaking book, tears were pouring down my face. Sarah Crossan wrote it exquisitely, and I can’t wait to post my review. If you haven’t read it, then go read it- now!

 

51ksnvwvbdl-_sx324_bo1204203200_4. Embassy Row: All Fall Down by Ally Carter

This is another great book by Ally Carter. I was kept breathless until the end, and now have to get my hands on the second book in the Embassy Row series, See How They Run.

 

51pb6ddzpcl-_sx324_bo1204203200_5. Mosquitoland by David Arnold

I had so much fun reading this book! I’d never read anything by David Arnold before and I loved Mim’s story. I thought he covered some serious issues in a highly enjoyable way.

 

51rqkpgbq-l-_sx327_bo1204203200_6. Gorilla Dawn by Gill Lewis

I was desperate to read this and it definitely didn’t disappoint- amazing! Gill Lewis is such a great writer of stories featuring the relationships between humans and animals and I think this is one of her best books.

 

51rx2bg05vsl-_sx324_bo1204203200_7. The Songbird Café Girls: Sunny Days and Moon Cakes by Sarah Webb

The second book in The Songbird Café Girls series, I couldn’t wait to read it after enjoying the first story. It’s a fabulous book about selective mutism, perfectly gauged for readers 9+.

 

 517huudyril-_sx354_bo1204203200_8. Looking Glass Girl by Cathy Cassidy

To see my review of Looking Glass Girl, that I posted a few weeks ago, click here! Cathy Cassidy interweaves her novel with the Lewis Carrol classic story, Alice in Wonderland, in honour of its’ 150th anniversary.

 

41c2b4jgr2bl-_sx324_bo1204203200_9. One of Us by Jeannie Waudby

This book reminds me of Malorie Blackman’s Noughts and Crosses, even though it is very different. I had no idea what would happen next in the story, and it was a very enjoyable read.

 

51f2sqkgkcl-_sx324_bo1204203200_10. The Farm Beneath the Water by Helen Peters

 To see my review of The Farm Beneath The Water, which was my very first review on The Never Ending Bookshelf, click here!

 

There’s a few other books published in 2015 that I think would have made my favourite books list, such as Princess Academy: The Forgotten Sisters by Shannon Hale, Model Under Cover: Deadly by Design by Carina Axelsson, Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne, The Next Together by Lauren James, and Asking For It by Louise O’Neill, but I unfortunately haven’t read those yet!

There has been so many great books published this year, and I only named a few of my favourites. Many of them I haven’t posted a review of yet, so watch this space!

Happy New Year!
