Top Ten Books Published in 2015

This week’s Top Ten topic, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is the top ten books read in 2015. I decided to narrow down my list by making it just the top ten books I read that were published in 2015. I read more new releases this year than I usually do.

  1. Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson
  2. Selfish, Shallow and Self-Absorbed by Meghan Daum (ed.)
  3. Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart
  4. The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher
  5. Undermajordomo Minor by Patrick deWitt
  6. The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigaupi
  7. Girl at War by Sara Novic
  8. Uprooted by Naomi Novik
  9. Slade House by David Mitchell
  10. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
  11. You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day

I’ll release my final top ten books list at the end of the month, but some of the books I know I’ll include are Americanah, Everything I Never Told You, Station Eleven, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle.

And see here for a list of the top ten new to me authors in 2015.

    • Thanks for the comment! I think Mindy Kaling is great and this book was better than her first. I’ve fallen behind on her show this year though – not sure if it’s the baby or that I just keep forgetting to watch Hulu.

  1. There are some great books there! I loved Undermajordomo Minor as well – Patrick deWitt’s writing is so fun to read. I’m reading Slade House at the moment and I’m nearly at the end. I’m enjoying it, but I’ve seen other people haven’t liked it that much – so maybe I’m liking it because I went into it with lower expectations? I haven’t read anything else by David Mitchell so I don’t have anything to compare it to either.

  2. Great list! Furiously Happy would have made mine, but I’m reading it right now. 🙂 I love Jenny Lawson. Mindy Kaling is on my TBR. I need to look into some of these other books, the covers all look wonderful.

  3. I’ve recently bought Upooted so seeing it here makes me happy about my purchase! Slade House and Furiously Happy are on my wishlist. I need to look into the rest!
