My Top 5 Books of 2015

2015 is coming to an end and it is time for looking back on the year. I read some amazing books this year and here are my top 5 picks of best books of 2015:

 

Sabriel by Garth Nix

Sabriel Book Cover

 

Sabriel is a kick-ass heroine, the worldbuilding is amazing and the magic is different and interesting.

The Invisible Library & The Masked City by Genevieve Cogman

This is a promising new series. Irene is an awesome, smart heroine, the other characters are so much fun and the world it is set in is awesome.

Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth

Zealot: Jesus of Nazareth Biography Cover

The only non-fiction book on this list, Zealot is a fascinating biography of one of the most influential people in history. It is well-written and gives a very good overview over the time in which Jesus of Nazareth lived.

Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence

Prince of Thorns Book Cover

Jorg Ancrath is not the nicest of protagonists. He’s definitely no good guy. But he’s an awesome character in a book full of interesting characters set in a fascinating world.

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

A Darker Shade of Magic


A Darker Shade of Magic is a great start to a new series. It centers on Kell, a traveller between worlds and Lila Bard, would-be-pirate, bandit and thief. The characters are loveable, Kell’s and Lila’s relationship is great and the story is gripping.

There’s mostly fantasy books in my Top 5 and, except for Sabriel, they don’t feature much of a romance plotline. These books made the top of my list because the characters are complex and well-written and the worldbuilding is thought-out and different from the classical fantasy worldbuilding.
