My Top Ten Books of 2015

I've noticed a glut of Best Books Of 2015 blog posts around as we come to the year's end so thought I would add mine to the mix. In hindsight, it was a daft idea! Choosing my favourite ten reads of the year was tough enough, but trying to rank them into some kind of order of best-ness proved totally impossible! Instead these are my favourite ten books that I read in 2015 in the order in which I read them.

Links go to their relevant blog page so you can see my review and maybe even click through to buy yourself a copy.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

And another ten honourable mentions of five star books that I felt guilty about leaving out!
