Year’s Reads in Review – Top Picks for 2015

This year has been…very interesting to say the least when it comes to my reading habits. Never before have I focused so much on WHAT and am reading and WHEN! That was all thanks to the various challenges and TBR tackling I did to push myself to read smarter this year. All in all, I think it was a pretty successful 12 months of reading! I read more books than I expected and definitely crossed off some long TBR shelved series and books from my Kobo (I’m looking at you Grisha Trilogy).

Check out which books I read this past year HERE!

Like I did last year, I’ve decided to compile a list of my top picks from the various categories that I read this past year. Most categories deal with books published only this past year (2015) but there are some noted exceptions. Click on the cover to read my review of the book/series; though a good chunk of these reads will have reviews published in 2016 so no link is available!

Without further ado:

(Books are in no particular order; click on cover for review if available)
