Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015. (you can do it by only 2015 releases, overall , by genre (top ten fantasy books I read in 2015), etc. however you choose to make your BEST list)
I know I’ve probably talked about many of these books about a BILLION times in the last few months, but what can I say? I LOVE THEM! Sadly, there are others that didn’t make the list, that I did love almost as much as these, but I didn’t want to go over board. If I used every 5 star book I read this year, I would probably be posting my Top TWENTY Tuesday! But I can’t do that. 😦 So, here’s to you lovely books, that didn’t make the cut. This doesn’t mean you’re second best! 😥
Okay, let’s get started. Here are my Top Ten Reads of 2015!
1.) Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson.
2. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon.
3.) The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson.
4.) I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson.
5.) Just Listen by Sarah Dessen.
6.) Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling.
7.) The Duff by Kody Keplinger.
8.) The Sister Pact by Stacie Ramey.
9.) My Heart & Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga.
10.) Before I Die by Jenny Downham.
There it is, the Top Ten Best Books I Read in 2015. May I read even more great books like these in 2016! 😀

I’ve only read My Heart and Other Black Holes as well as the DUFF, but I can definitely agree with those 🙂
Great list! I love Sarah Dessen and Morgan Matson. Everything, Everything was so good. It almost made my list. I should have put it on there as an honorable mention.
Fabulous picks! I really, really want to read Mindy Khaling’s book. She’s hilarious and I don’t know why I haven’t bought that one yet!
Sarah Dessen is probably my favorite contemporary YA author. I’ve been reading her for over 10 years!! And I’m currently listening to Why Not Me right now! Great list!
Seems like you have had a great 2015 in reading! I really need to get around to a lot of these, especially Jandy Nelson since I’ve heard great things. 🙂
Oh gosh, I totally hear you about putting together this list for this TTT, I’m sure I missed a ton more than what I listed, despite of adding an honourable mentions list!, but it was fun to recap the year a bit. Great list! 🙂
Great list! It looks like Everything, Everything made quite a lot of lists this week. 🙂
I loved My Heart and both Jandy Nelson books; they’re three of my all-time favorites. Everything, Everything almost made my list as well. Glad to hear you enjoyed them 🙂
Great list! You can’t go wrong with Morgan Matson or Sarah Dessen. 😉
Thanks for checking out my TTT!

I haven’t read any of these, definitely some new ones to add to my TBR list!
That’s an awesome list!
I want to read ALL of these, but, sadly, I have read NONE. Great picks though, I’ve seen quite a few of them on others’ lists as well. Thanks for visiting my TTT! Happy reading!
Yes, My Heart and Other Black Holes! I really liked that one too. I think I need to reread Everything Everything: it didn’t do much for me but it’s on so many Top Tens I am wondering if I missed something. Good list!
Love your list! 🙂
There are so many on here that I really want to read!
I cannot believe I forgot Everything, Everything! I LOVED that book! Also, I own The Sky is Everywhere. I need to read that one soon.
Yes to all of them. My TTT: https://outlookonabook.wordpress.com
Brilliant list! I’ve read 5/10 and loved those so I’ve just added the other 5 to my TBR. Thanks!!
Great list! I really liked The Duff, too! So many of these I really want to read, including Second Chance Summer and Everything, Everything.
Reading too many 5 star books for a top ten list is a good problem to have! 😉 You already saw that I loved “I’ll Give You the Sun,” but I enjoyed “Everything, Everything” too. And talk about a gorgeous cover!
I haven’t read any of the books in your post, but everyone seems to be raving how wonderful Jandy Nelson’s books are. So, I’ll have to read one!
Here’s a link to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/12/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-best-books-i.html
I still need to read Jandy Nelson’s books. I’ve heard great things!
Everything everything is on my list too! I still need to read quite a few of these though. Here’s my TTT http://angelerin.blogspot.com/2015/12/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-ya-novels-i.html?m=0
Oo two Jandy Nelson books! I’ve yet to read….one! Can you believe it? I need to get on that ASAP! We both have a Jenny Downham book on our list! Mine is YOU AGAINST ME. It’s SO GOOOOD. I don’t know if I’ll ever read Before I Die – like I know it’ll break my heart…just from the title, let alone the synopsis. & Just Listen was the last Sarah Dessen book I read. I loved her back in high school…I need to read more of her books! Great list 🙂
I just received Everything, Everything as a gift and I’m excited to read it!! I also think I’m going to try to read my heart and other black holes.
Thanks for stopping by @TheHappyReader! 😀
I am currently listening to an audio book of My Heart and Other Black Holes, and I am really enjoying it. I have some issues with it, and feel like I know where its going to end, but I am still enjoying it.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
You have some great choices! I have not read Second Chance Summer yet, but I loved her other book (Since You’ve Been Gone) and I hope that I get to read it soon. 🙂 Great list!
I’ll Give You the Sun is my favourite YA novel of all time and I can’t believe I haven’t read The Sky is Everywhere yet! I should definitely remedy that next year! I read Sarah Dessen’s Just Listen about 7 years ago and really, really enjoyed it. I’m hoping to reread it soon because I don’t remember anything about it!!
THE DUFF!!!! That book is one of my all time favourites! I really loved the message and that beautiful romance! 😀
I am so happy to see Before I Die in your list! That book is so underrated! I sobbed so hard while reading it!
Just Listen! It’s such a special book to my life! It made me confess something I’ve kept to myself for some time, and I am eternally grateful for Sarah Dessen for that!
Here’s my list
What a great list you have! This year has been a great year full of books. DUFF has to be one of my favorite this year, along with Winter and so many more. Sarah Dessen is one of my all time favorite authors haven’t read a book of her’s that I haven’t falling madly in love with! Great list! Happy reading!
Thanks! I only started reading Sarah Dessen this year. My sister has read her books for years and for some reason I barely jumped on the band wagon. Better late than never right? 🙂
Hi Giovanna, I really need to pick up a Sarah Dessen book. I’m hoping 2016 will be the year I finally do! I want to read more contemporary stuff so I’m going to go note down all your list and hopefully buy some of them for next year 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, Happy Reading

Great list!! I can’t wait to read Everything, Everything, it sounds so wonderful. I just started I’ll Give You The Sun, and for now I’m really liking it! I read all of Morgan Matson’s books, except the one you put here, ahah. Since I loved ALL of her books so far, maybe I should try this one, too? 🙂
I reeeeeally need to read ‘Everything, Everything’! Like…soon! That cover is so amazing.
Do It! 😀
The only one I’ve read on here is I’ll Give You the Sun but I adore that book, it is so good!! Glad to see it made your list. 🙂
Awesome list! 🙂 I saw the movie of The DUFF but I haven’t gotten around to reading the book yet. I’ve heard some mixed reviews about it which is why I’ve sort of been putting it off, but I really enjoyed the movie.
The book is totally different from the movie, but I still think they are both great! It’s worth it! 😀
I’ll Give You the Sun was one of my huge favorites from last year! This is a seriously great list!
I thought Before I Die was good too and I have been meaning to read Kaling’s books. Great list!
Well, I haven’t read all of these, BUT you do have two of my favorite books here: Just Listen and The Sky is Everywhere! I also adored Everything Everything too. Great list 🙂
I read and loved both of Nelson’s books this year. I can’t wait for her to release something new! And I love your blog background.
Thanks for stopping by the The Local Muse
Great list! I need to read the Sky is Everywhere and I’ll Give You the Sun was on my list too. Sarah Dessen is amazing and Just Listen was the first one I read by her and remains my favourite. I also read My Heart and Other Black Holes this year which was really gripping but didn’t quite make my list.
Here’s my TTT: https://beccaeatsbooksblog.wordpress.com/2015/12/15/top-ten-for-tuesday-best-books-i-read-in-2015/
I haven’t read any of the books on your list! i’ve heard alot of great things about all of them though!
Oh, The DUFF is one of my all time favorites. Great list. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my TTT earlier. 🙂
I love a good Sarah Dessen book and I haven’t read that one yet, but it sounds good. I’ve been on the fence about The Duff but I think I’m going to try it out next year. This list looks like it has a lot of good books on it!
You should. The Duff isn’t what you expect. Its great!:D
Like you, I’ve talked about my favorites of 2015 LOTS on my blog. However that doesn’t stop me from putting together the blog’s annual “favorites list.” Hopefully I’ll get mine up that last week in December. 🙂
I discovered Morgan Matson’s writing this year and loved it. Needless to say, I’m now a fan.
Thanks so much for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon.
No Problem! 🙂
Everything Everything was so very good! Great list! Thanks for visiting my blog. 😀
I’m definitely going to have to check out Jandy Nelson’s first book since I loved I’ll Give You the Sun so much!
Great list! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
I really need to read those books by Jandy Nelson! everyone loves them.
