Favorite Reads in 2015

So, this year I read some great books.  Some were not so great, but overall I enjoyed most of them. In honour of it beings he end of 2015, I am going  to name my favourite reads of 2015.

The name of the wind (Patrick Rothfuss)-5/5
Kvothe was a magician, musician and much more. There was a lot of rumours of what happened to him. When Kvothe helps a travelling scribe Chronicler, he agrees to tell his story. Kvothe informs the Chronicler that the story will take three days to tell.  One day for each book in the trilogy.  The story begins with Kvothe during his childhood, from his time among a group of travelling performers to his years as a beggar in the city of Tarbean and then as he enters university. This is a fantastic epic fantasy book and I cannot wait to finish the rest of the series.

Heir of fire (Sarah J. Mass)- 5/5
Heir of fire is the third book in the throne of glass series.  I won't get into what happens in this book, but in the throne of glass we meet Celaena Sardothien, who is the Assassin of Adarlan   A year after being sentenced to the salt mines of EndovierCelaena is given the option by Prince Dorian to compete in a tournament to see who will become the Kings champion.  If Celaena wins she will serve the king for four years then will be granted her freedom. I definitely recommend this series. Review

the Martian (Andy Weir)- 4.5/5
The Martian is about Mark Watney, who is stranded on Mars.  After a dust storm, which forces his crew to leave while thinking Mark is dead.  With no way to contact Earth or the rest of his crew.  He must find a way to survive with his damaged equipment and supplies slowly running out.  I found this an exciting and thrilling read. Review

Fangirl (Rainbow Rowell)- 5/5
Cath and Wren are twins about to start college.  They do everything together.  When Wren decides she  no longer wants to be part of a pair.  Wren gets a new roommate and is very excited to start.  It is not so easy for Cath.  Fangirl follows Cath through her first year of college I found fangirl very relatable and funny.  While I do not read a lot of contemporary, I really enjoyed this book.  

Poison study (Maria V. Snyder)- 4.5/5
Yelena Zaltana is about to be executed, but when given the chance to become food help protect JIlltaster to the military leader of Ixia Commander Ambros, Yelena takes it.  While General Brazell has vowed revenge against her for killing his son.  Yelena needs to control her magical growing inside her.

The ruby circle (Richelle Mead)- 4.5/5
The Ruby Circle is the final book in the Bloodlines Series which is a spin-off from the Vampire Academy.  Bloodlines centres an alchemist Sydney Sage as she is sent to Palm Springs to help protect a Moroi, Jill.  The Moroi and Alchemist beleive they will be safe in an Human Boarding School, Amberwood Prep.  They soon discover there are dangers both in the school and in Palm Springs

Clockwork princess (Cassandra Clare)- 5/5
Is the final to infernal devices trilogy which is the prequel to the mortal instruments.  I won't get into this book, but this trilogy Tessa Gray as she allies herself with the mysterious shadowhunters as she searches for her missing brother.  Which include Will and Jem,  who Tessa finds herself attracted to.  They must work together to stop a secret organisation of vampires, demons, warlocks and humans.  I thought this was a fantastic ending to an excellent trilogy.

Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone (Illustrated Edition) (J.K Rowling)-5/5
Harry Potter discovers he is a wizard on his eleventh birthday. Harry has been accepted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  The Philosopher's Stone follow Harry's first year along with his new friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. I read the new illustrated edition, which is filled with beautiful illustrations. If you have not read Harry Potter yet you should definitely pick this series up.
