Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly discussion feature and meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I don't participate often, just when I have the time and the question interests me.
This week's topic is Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015 (you can do it by only 2015 releases, overall , by genre [top ten fantasy books I read in 2015], etc. however you choose to make your BEST list). I went with the top 10 best books I read all year.
A Red-Rose Chain by Seanan Mcguire
Tight plotting, witty banter, strong characterization, "A Red-Rose Chain" was just about perfect and I love this series.
Silver On the Road by Laura Anne Gilman
Alternative history, a fresh take hero's journey, a story of growth and choices, a coming of age story filled with poetic language, adventure, a different take on the devil. It was entertaining, fascinating, and a wonderful story.
Led Astray by Kelley Armstrong
This anthology really showcases Armstrong's strengths and her diversity plus I enjoyed the stories from her established series that gave us new perspectives from secondary and new characters as well as brand new stand-alones.
NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and The Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman
Full of fascinating information, history, and theories; exhaustive detail; a good introduction to what autism is and is not and to changing our thinking about what is normal and what is different.
Deceptions by Kelley Armstrong
Twisty, fast-paced, and layered; there's mystery, action, romance, mythology, humor, family drama, and family love.
Gaming the System by Laura K. Curtis
Fun, fresh with a good mix of humor, family drama, and sexy times; a sweet romance that delivered delightful characters, some serious themes wrapped in a layer of romance and redemption, and let's not forget the hot sex scenes.
Top Dog: The Story of Marine Hero Lucca by Maria Goodavage
A little too rah-rah, it was still a wonderful story of a dog her and humans and the work they do.
Parenting in the Age of Attention Snatchers: A Step-by-Step Guide to Balancing Your Child's Use of Technology by Lucy Jo Palladino
An excellent resource for parents and teachers, it's clearly written and easily usable. It's respectful of the children as well as the adults.
Crash & Burn by Lisa Gardner
I freaking loved this book; amazing, awesome, wonderful. I was fascinated and captivated from the start, and never lost interest; it was engrossing and utterly enthralling.
Aden by D.B.Reynolds
I enjoy this PNR series and this entry had treachery, hot sex (lots of it) with some light BDSM, vampire politics, and romance. I particularly enjoyed the politics and machinations as well as the flashbacks to Aden's life as a human.
