15 Most Favorite Books of 2015

2015 has been a good reading year for me because not only did I finally decide to try a hand at book blogging, but also because I never thought it would be that fulfilling. Sure, formatting and doing Photoshop work can be so freaking tiring, but I get that satisfaction whenever I see that it’s been received well/appreciated. It means a lot especially for a one-man team and small-time blogger like me. Hard work paid off, really. I got to meet a lot of local authors personally, too, and even be that somebody who does things for a bookish circle. Best year yet!

2015 was also the year that I got to read over a hundred books! 109 to be exact according to Goodreads. To be honest, I think I may have forgotten adding other books there. I was one book short because I finished at 110 in 2014. But anyway, I moved on and listed the top 15 that literally had me feeling riding a rollercoaster a lot of times, where the ride got stuck in the middle upside down once or twice. Those emotions. No regrets, though, because I have a thing with rollercoaster rides!
