Top 10 Tuesday – Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015

Oh hey, look, it’s time for the freaking hardest TTT of the year. Hooray. Seriously, this list kills me every year, because there are SO many books I want to love on. If you count ONLY blog books, I’ve read 52 books this year, including 8 DNFs. (Of course, if you want to count work/internship books and beta reads, that adds another 62 books to the stack. Oy.)

I managed to narrow this list down to the requisite ten, despite overwhelming odds, but you need to understand some things. 1. This does NOT include books read for my internship. There are so GORGEOUSLY WONDERFUL titles in that particular section of my spreadsheet, but I can’t talk about them yet. 2. This does not include the 3.25 How to Train Your Dragon audiobooks I’ve read so far this year, because all of them rightfully belong here but would’ve made the list too long.

    I certainly want to read Omega City. It sounds like it’ll be an awesome book and I’m glad to hear you like it. Also, The Wrath and the Dawn sounds like it’ll be a really good book. Glad you’re liking it so far and I hope it stays good. (Totally want to get to read it.)
