The Best and Worst of 2015

31 Dec

Best and Worst

I’m very disappointed that I didn’t reach my personal goal of reading at least 50 books in 2015 like I did last year. Especially since I read an article that said reading 50-60 books a year is one of the things all the most successful people in the world have in common. In retrospect, the move to our first house and our wedding and honeymoon didn’t leave much time for reading. I can’t wait to have all that stress off my shoulders in 2016!

Looking back on what I read in 2015 there were only a handful of books that I felt were worthy of my favorite book of 2015. There were also quite a few books that I couldn’t stand. I don’t know what that says about my reading choices this year…but enough talk; here are my picks for the best and worst book I read and reviewed in 2015!

Best

Horns

This was almost a no brainer for my 2015 favorite read of the year except for the fact that it had two strong running mates. Ultimately though, this book rises to the top of the list because even now when I look at the cover, all the emotions I felt when reading the book are reignited. I was blown away by a book that so wonderfully combines elements of horror, fantasy, romance, and suspense into one story. It’s funny, creative, brutal, and magical all at once. I’d never read anything like it, and if all of Joe Hill’s books are like this, then I have a new favorite author. I hope to review more of his work in 2016 but as of now I can say without a doubt that this book is pure gold.

WhereGringosDontBelong

For such a small book, it was a definite struggle to get through it. The story was all over the place and the characters were the same way. The only interesting part of the book was one scene in the end. Not to mention that the book used Spanish so heavily I could barely understand it. This story needs more character and story development before it can stand up against everything else readers have to choose from out there.
