I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season and New Years! I took off of one of my jobs so that I could spend more time with my little family. It was awesome.
Now that I’m back to the grind, I thought I’d share some of my favorite books, posts, and other highlights from 2015!
This may get long…2015 was a great year!
Let’s get the longest category out of the way: BOOKS.
2015 Fave books
I’m not really sure if I had a completely #1 favorite book of 2015. There were so many to choose from that I could talk about for hours, so in no particular order here are my top ten! …They are pretty much all Sci-fi/dystopian lit!
I’m sure this book is on everyone’s “best of 2015” lists, but I had to add it. It’s awesome! (See review) I added it to my “read yearly” list on Goodreads, which only has two other books on it right now. I received “Ready Player One” from a LootCrate! Best month ever!

The Treemakers by Christina L Rozelle
This one is classified as YA, but definitely has some scarier parts. I loved it. It was definitely dark, yet remained hopeful through all of the horribleness. Read my interview with Christina here and book reviews here and here.
Christina is a great author, but also a kind and generous person. She agreed to an interview and I look forward to getting to know her more over the years!
Prep for Doom anthology by Band of Dystopian Authors and Fans
This anthology was unique because all the stories intertwined even though multiple authors wrote them! (I was lucky enough to be asked to join the Band of Dystopian team as an assistant in 2015 too. I love BOD!)
In a very short time, Sarah has written a few series. All awesome, all a little different, and all taking place in the same “universe.” Each book is about people called “dream travelers” who each have special abilities. Love.
Zombies, but in a different way than usual. Ann has a way of pulling you into her worlds like no one else! Her book, “Strikers” is also fantastic. Check out my interview with Ann and the review for “The In-Betweener”!
This is a suspense-type romance released as a serial series. It is NOT YA. But I love it. Check out Casey’s other books as well. She writes in all different genres and I loved each world she’s created.
I am truly humbled and excited today because this blog was given an award by UrbanEpics for being one of the best YA blogs of 2015. Check out my best of 2015 post to see which books I really recommend.
