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

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.
The new books by Sarah J Maas, “Ten thousand skies above you”, “Uprooted” and Six of crows! Thank you for the giveaway!

I’ve read a lot of great books this year but Visions in Silver had to be one of my favorites.

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.
I can’t pick a single favorite, but I suppose I’ll name Golden Son by Pierce Brown.
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. ^^
The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley
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
I really enjoyed reading A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas as well as Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Penguins Can’t Fly by Jason Kotecki
Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂
