#Blogcember | Favourite Books of 2015

Although I've not nearly read as many books as I'd hoped this year, I've definitely read some brilliant ones. For day seven of #Blogcember, I thought I'd share with you my top reads this year. If you've read any of them, let me know!

All I Know Now by Carrie Hope Fletcher
I've read Carrie's blog for a while now, and really wanted to give All I Know Now a read when it came out. I'm so glad I read it, because although it's not entirely helpful as I'm the same age as Carrie, it was great being able to relate so much with stories in the book. Quite frankly, I wish something like this would have been available when I was at school, because it would have made growing up a little easier.

After You by Jojo Moyes
I've mentioned this book/Jojo Moyes quite a lot on my blog, and I absolutely adore it. I read Me Before You last year, and I've labelled it as my favourite book since, so I was extremely excited about the concept of a sequel. It was better than I imagined it could be, and if you've read the first you should definitely give this one a read.

Dream a Little Dream by Giovanna Fletcher
Giovanna is definitely an author who's books I absolutely adore. I can't actually pick a favourite from her three novels. This book was brilliant, and I absolutely loved the story. I'm so glad that she's released a Christmas short to follow up this story, and I'm actually going to an event for it this evening, so look out for a post on that soon!

The Year of Taking Chances by Lucy Diamond
When I spotted this book at the start of the year, I knew it'd be perfect to read. The title made it seem just like what I wanted my 2015 to be, and so I thought this book would be inspirational. It actually didn't get read til a few months ago, but I loved it as much as I thought I would and I am glad I read it.

Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler
Now this was actually one I spotted my friend Kelsey reading, and after seeing her rave about it I knew I wanted to give it a read. It was SO good. Not only is it a great story to read, depicting both the relationship and breakup of Min and Ed through a box of objects she returns to him, it's also beautifully illustrated and such an easy book to pick up. I would read it over and over again if I didn't have so many unread books on my shelf.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler
I actually had this book in paperback, and then bought it on Audible to listen to on the 17 hour coach trip I was taking in America. I knew I wouldn't be able to read on the coach, so I picked something that was somewhat light-hearted and easy to listen to. Amy Poehler did not fail, and it definitely kept me going for that journey. Such a great book, and even better to listen to Amy reading it herself!

Always the Bridesmaid by Lindsey Kelk
I'm a huge fan of Lindsey Kelk's I Heart series, and I actually picked up a signed copy of this for my friend Kirsty, for her birthday. I had a few audible credits in the summer when I went to America, and decided to get myself the book to listen to on my commutes. I absolutely loved it, and have a few more of Lindsey's books to read next too. It's another added to my top 10 books!
