My Favourite Books of 2015

As 2016 starts, I thought I would take the opportunity to look back on my favourite books of 2015. I've split my favourites into categories and have chosen 3 from each category, in no particular order. I've read some great books this year and discovered some authors that are completely new to me. As such, it has been extremely difficult to pick my favourites and I'm still not totally sure that I've made the right choice in some categories!

FAVOURITE CRIME/THRILLER NOVELS


Silent Scream and Evil Games and Lost Girls by Angela Marsons (yes, I know these are 3 separate books but I'm counting them as one because I can't choose between them!)

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

Crash & Burn by Lisa Gardner


With special mentions also to The Lie by C.L. Taylor and The Dead Dog Day by Jackie Kabler

FAVOURITE ROMANCE NOVELS



The Vintage Guide to Love and Romance by Kirsty Greenwood

Somewhere Only We Know by Erin Lawless

The Grand Re-opening of Dandelion Cafe by Jenny Oliver


With special mentions also to Lost by Elle Field, Secrets at Maple Syrup Farm by Rebecca Raisin, Game of Scones by Samantha Tonge, Truly Madly Greekly by Mandy Baggot and Cocktails at Le Carmen by Isabelle Andover.

FAVOURITE HISTORICAL NOVELS


Playing With Fire by Tess Gerritsen (an odd choice as I didn't know whether to put this one into the thriller or historical categories, however it was the historical aspect that I liked best)

Letters to the Lost by Iona Grey

Secrets of the Tower by Debbie Rix

FAVOURITE OTHER FICTION NOVELS


The Gilded Life of Matilda Duplaine by Alex Brunkhorst

Stonebird by Mike Revell

A Robot in the Garden by Deborah Install



With special mentions also to The Two of Us by Andy Jones, The Life Intended by Kristin Harmel and The Quality of Silence by Rosamund Lupton

FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS NOVELS


What Happens at Christmas by TA Williams

Christmas at Lilac Cottage by Holly Martin

Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Jumper by Debbie Johnson


With special mentions also to Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses by Jenny Hale and The Winter Wedding by Abby Clements.

I've been enjoying comparing everyone's 'best of 2015' lists, and now have a long wishlist for 2016! I hope you all enjoy reading which books I have most enjoyed in the past 12 months.
