As mentioned in my earlier post, I’m doing a 3-day countdown to 2016 and I’ll be sharing with you my year in books, best reads, worst reads, etc.
Yesterday, I listed the top 15 2015 releases that I NEED to buy. Click here if you want to check it out!
Today, I’m doing my ~wittle~ bookish awards! I’ll be picking only from the 50 books I read in 2015, which isn’t much, BUT HEY.
Are you ready? Let’s go!
Cover Lust Award:
Champion by Marie Lu
This cover is just divine up-close. You have to see it yourself! And touch it. And feel it.
Ultimate Heartbreaker of the Year:
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
I can remember bringing this book with me while on vacation and I badly needed sleep but I kept reading and reading that when it’s almost over, I was stuck between wanting to get to the end AND not wanting it to end. It’s a beautiful novel – one that I could read over and over again for the rest of my life.
Favourite Debut Author of 2015:
Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
This is one refreshing read! It’s nice to have diverse books, but this one’s different. The LGBT community was properly introduced and I’m going to lie if I say I did not squeal in a public place while reading this. Woops.
New Favourite Author:
Lucy Christopher, author of Stolen
I absolutely love Lucy Christopher and her writing and just everything about her. She’s incredibly nice, but she also made me cry WHICH IS ACTUALLY A GOOD THING because she made me feel things and Stolen was so beautiful. Holy crap. I’m rambling!
Best Male Protagonist:
Jay Gatsby from The Great Gatsby
This man. This man held my heart from beginning to end. Freaking Gatsby.
Worst Male Protagonist:
Miles Archer from Ugly Love
Need I say more? Lololololololololol
Best Female Protagonist:
Allyson Healey from Just One Day
OH MY GOOOOOD I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M FINALLY SHARING WITH YOU MY IMAGINED ACTRESS FOR ALLYSON! Allyson is and will always be my soul-sister. It’s so rare for people to find oneself in a protagonist, I’m so lucky I found mine.
Worst Female Protagonist:
Bianca Piper from The DUFF
Okay, not the one from the movie adaptation, but the book was so bad. . .
Earl from Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
THIS GUY IS MY HERO! He makes the most sarcastic remarks and swears like a motherf*cker but I love him. Damn, I miss him!
Will Traynor & Louisa Clarke from Me Before You
Did you hear that? That’s the sound of my heart shattering in pieces because this book is everything. And there will be a movie adaptation starring these two awesome actors. How lovely.
Silas Nash from Never Never
OK BYE IT’S DANIEL SHARMAN Y’ALL so I could swoon all the way to Antarctica
June Iparis from Legend
My strong baby. Love June so much I even used “Junebug” as my Twitter nickname for months!
Most Likely to be my Boyfriend:
Willem De Ruiter from Just One Day
Looking bad boy but is really a little puppy deep inside. I could picture Willem and I really getting along. I mean, if he did so with Allyson, who is perfectly like me, then we could work it out! Also, totally cheating for imagining my long-time celebrity crush Callan McAuliffe for this role. Ha.
Most Likely to be my Best friend:
Sloane from Since You’ve Been Gone
In this book, Emily and Sloane are best friends. The reason I enjoyed Since You’ve Been Gone a lot is me being a lot like Emily (although not as much as me being a lot like Allyson) and my best friend being a lot like Sloane. My copy of this book has been living with my best friend for like 6 months and she still hasn’t read it! I WILL NEVER STOP NAGGING HER UNTIL SHE READS IT.
Best Realistic Fiction of the Year:
Just One Day series by Gayle Forman
My first reads in 2015. I could never stop talking about these books. But I must stop now, as you’ve probably heard too much. Ha!
MY OTP FOR LIFE:
THIS. IS. LIFE.
NEVER. LET. THIS. DIE.
Haha, well that was fun! I hope you enjoyed reading through this as much as I enjoyed making it.
See you tomorrow for the last day of this countdown!
