Welcome back for another round of Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Learn more about Top Ten Tuesday and its previous topics here.

Up this week: Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015

I’m at 35 books read so far this year, and I think that’s a good number to choose 10 from. I’m not going to go into detail like normal due to a busy week (meh), but know that these all come highly recommended by me for various reasons, including strong/intelligent/brave/hilarious women, brilliant worlds created, excellent take on history, made me cry, top-notch literary classic, powerful lesson/message, etc. In no particular order…

1. The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

2. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

3. Wild by Cheryl Strayed

4. Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay

5. Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng

6. The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro

7. Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel

8. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy

9. The Martian by Andy Weird

10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

    • I hope you enjoy it better the second time around if you give it another go! It had some slow bits, but overall I really enjoyed it. I also couldn’t help but imagine Carey Mulligan throughout, and that always helps. 🙂

    • I only got through the first episode, but I intend on finishing it. I was trying to watch it while reading it (so read enough to get through the episode, then read more, watch more, etc.) That didn’t work so well once they show went ahead of the book and I got frustrated, haha. But I will get back to the show! I was enjoying it.

  1. I tried to listen to Bad Feminist a week or so ago, but even after a few chapters I couldn’t really get into it. Maybe I should give it another go! I absolutely adore The Book Thief though! And The Martion is on my priority-to-read list. I need to read it before the movie adaptation comes out, because it sounds epic.

    Great list! 🙂

  2. I could see how reading Wolf Hall and watching the series would be a bit tricky. What do you think of the narrative style in Wolf Hall? It took me a long time to get the hang of it. I want to read The Martian, but not sure if I’ll get it in print or try the audio book.

    • The Wolf Hall style was interesting, to say the least, and it also took me some time getting used to it. I’d also forget dates and have to dig around to make sure I was still where I thought I was, haha. As for the Martian, it has a lot of Mars life detail and daily details of trying to figure a way out, but eventually you get rewarded with more plot and characters. Overall, well worth the read/listen.


    • The Goldfinch is definitely a project in terms of size and everything that happens, but I found it well worth my time in the end. I hope you get to some of these books in the future! 🙂
