Top Ten Books So Far This Year

Posted June 30, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Top Ten Tuesday / 56 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. 

This week is the top ten books I have read so far in 2015. I feel like I have read a lot of good books so far. I double checked with Goodreads on my ratings to see if they matched with how I see it now. I think I still agree so here are my favorites that I have read so far!


Maybe in Another Life: I flew through this book. I enjoyed the parrallel universes. I liked the characters. I loved the ending.

Isla and the Happily Ever After: I loved all of the books in this trilogy but this was my favorite.

Landline: I love Rainbow Rowell. I loved this book. I think besides the magic fucking phone it displayed some real issues that can happen in a marriage. I really liked the way it was resolved.

Bright Side: So many great things here I don’t know where to start. Loved Kate. Made me cry like a baby.

The Rosie Project: Such a breath of fresh air. Funny, cute and quirky. Loved this quick read.


The Nightingale: Good lord I cried. And cried. Beautiful story.

The Girl You Left Behind: See above.

Still Alice: A sad but honest look at devstating disease.

The Girl on the Train: Totally made me feel anxious, queezy and slightly frightened. Can’t ask for more than that.

Because You’ll Never Meet Me: Suprised me how much I liked this one. Great friendship story.

What are some of your top reads of 2015?
What do you think of my picks?

      I actually hadn’t read any book like that but I thought it was awesome! Will definitely be looking for more now.

  1. I LOVE your list. First of all, I’m so encouraged now to read some of these that have been on my to-read list for a while, like Still Alice, Landline and The Nightingale. Especially Still Alice, I’m so intrigued by that one! And secondly, I love to discover new books that other people love. So I’m definitely going to look up Bright Side and Maybe in Another Life! They both sounds incredible.

    Great list! 🙂

      Thanks! The Nightingale was so amazing. Still Alice was really a great book – Hope you enjoy them when you get to them!!

  2. Damn. I haven’t read any of those books. I started reading The Girl on the Train but I didn’t finish it and it went back to the library. I am to review Maybe in Another Life next month. I am happy to see it made your top ten so far this year. I really want to read The Rosie Project, Brightside, and Because You’ll Never Meet Me before the year is done. Great list!

      Oh I hope you like Maybe in Another Life! I really love it and one of the few I finished in a day this year. And I hope you get to finish Girl on the Train and enjoy it!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Bright Side was so epic. I just loved it. The follow up wasn’t quite the same but it is so hard to live up to an amzing book.

  3. I want to read The Girl on the Train! It sounds fantastic and I’ve heard nothing but good things so far. Maybe in Another Life and The Nightingale are also 2 books that come highly recommended from readers. It’s sad, but I haven’t read any books from your list! I’ll have to check out more for sure.
    I hope the rest of the year has some amazing books for you too! 🙂

      The Girl on the Train totally lived up to the hype for me. And I hope you have an amazing rest of the year reading too!!!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      I hate when a book gets too much hype but I really thoght The Girl on the Train lived up to it!

  4. Awesome list! I’m reading “The Girl You Left Behind” right now and I’m really enjoying it so far. I just started part 2, where we meet Liv. (I see it made you cry… uh oh!) I’ve enjoyed several other books on your list — “The Girl on the Train,” “The Rosie Project,” “Still Alice” and “Landline.” And after seeing “Maybe in Another Life” on a couple lists this morning, I added it to my to-read list!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      I am not going to lie – I cry a ton with books so it could just be me! Hope you enjoy The Girl You Left Behind!

  5. OOH great picks — I am even more convinced that you need to read Marrow! Have you read any Tarryn Fisher! If not, put her on your TBR now! My favorite is still Love Me With Lies but a lot of people like Mud Vein (it is also amazing!). I’m reading Swerve by Vicki Pettersson right now and I think you would love it based on this list — totally creepy like Girl On A Train and Gone Girl (same with Tarryn Fisher). I also can’t wait for Maybe In Another Life (jealous!!)

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT!!

      I read Mud Vein and really enjoyed it and I want to read her other stuff too. She is so different I love it. I will totally check out Swerve!!

    Two in common! And the rest of these sound so great! I have The Rosie Project on my TBR already. And Parallel Universes? I am so in! That sounds awesome. I can’t read Still Alice, too close to my heart with my Dad’s passing. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to read that one. But I’ve heard it is really wonderful. As always, love your Top Ten!

      The Rosie Project is perfect for a quick fun read if you have time to fit it in! And right Parallel Universes? How cool!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      I totally wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did but I thought it was great! I love Jojo Moyes so much I really need to get to more of her books.

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Such a clusterfuck! In the best way too. I loved all the unlikeable characters – if that makes any sense.

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Oh I hope you like Because You’ll Never Meet Me – I thought it was so adorable and weird. The Anna series is cute and quick and easy – and I love Isla the best – so get to it lol!!
