Best of 2015 Giveaway Hop

best of 2015 giveaway hop

Welcome to the Best of 2015 Giveaway Hop, Hosted by Bookhounds and I Am A Reader.

Usually I just give a Gift Card, but the instructions for this hop are to share our “best of 2015” lists and give away a real book. Or a real ebook. They’re all real to me.

One tiny problem. I have yet to whittle my “Best of 2015” list down to a remotely manageable number. The year isn’t over yet! But seriously, my inability to decide just makes for a longer list of possible “best of 2015” books for the winner to choose from.

The winner of my stop on the hop gets their choice of one of the following books:

Grant Park by Leonard Pitts Jr.
Shakespeare’s Rebel by C.C. Humphreys
Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie
An Ancient Peace by Tanya Huff
Freedom of Speech by David K. Shipler

The links above are to my reviews, so you can get an idea of just why I loved these books so much.

  1. You can’t pick a favorite book, but want us to? Impossible! 🙂 But seeing Uprooted on your list above compels me to mention that I finally listened to all the Temeraire books a couple of months ago and loved them. I’m both anticipating and dreading the final one.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  2. My favorite was the critics’ fave too — A Little Life, hands down…IMHO :-).

    Tbanks for giving us this opportunity — this is a really awesome selection of titles!

    Cheers, Kara S

  3. I finally started the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones. So I’m gonna cheat and say books 1-5 😛 Thanks for sharing!

  4. I finally got around to reading the Lunar Chronicles, and have loved those. But haven’t ready Winter yet! That’s what i’m looking forward to. Also listening to Red Queen right now and loving it.

  5. How do people choose a single favorite? I have read so many great books this year, I cannot possibly choose a single favorite. There’s Owen King’s graphic novel that was cheesy and campy, and filled with tasteless humor that made me laugh and laugh, and Anne Bishop’s Vision in Silver that continued the tale of The Others so beautifully, and works by Stephen King who is so much more experienced than most writers that I often find myself holding him to a higher standard (he’s also one of my very favorite authors), and Pierce Brown whose second book was even better than his first. I wanted to rate it far better than the measly five stars I could grant it, since that’s what I rated Red Rising.

  6. Can’t really choose one favorite so here’s my top 5: Tamora Pierce’s, Anne Bishop’s and Patricia Briggs’ Books, Lumatere Chronicles and Riyria Revelations

  7. I loved Touch by Claire North. Sorcerer to the Crown had a lot to recommend it and you can’t go wrong with the Ancillary series.

  8. I read a lot of different books this year. If i had to choose a favorite, it would be Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews. It was such a fun read and I can’t wait for the next book!

  9. Haven’t read a lot this year, but I enjoyed Rend the Dark (novella by Gelineau and King) and UnCommon Bodies (anthology).

  10. One of the best books I read this year was Hannah Both Ways.
    I’m currently reading Until the Dawn by Elizabeth Camden and I really like it.

  11. I loved Cast in Honor by Michelle Sagara, Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop, Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews and A Red-Rose Chain by Seanan McGuire.

  12. A few of my favorites were V.E. Schwab’s A Darker Shade of Magic, Rachel Caine’s Ink and Bone, the Jim Butcher book above, and Le Child’s Make Me.

  13. I read Doctor Sleep by Stephen King for the first time in 2015 and I think that’s my favorite 🙂

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. I didn’t read any new books this year(yet). But, from what I read, I loved Live To Tell by lisa Gardner.

  15. I have a similar problem, I’ve read too many grate books to have a favorite. Off the top of my head I loved Burned by Karen Marie Moning, Confess by Colleen Hoover, The Shadows by JR Ward. The list goes on and on!

  16. I haven’t read very many books this year :(. but Winter is near the top of my TBR list. Thanks for the giveaway!

  17. I’ve had quite a few books that I would say are favorites, two of them are a reread of Poison Study by Maria V Snyder and The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows.
