Top 15 Reads of 2015

I've suffered through so many book funks this year that it's not even funny but there were a few books that still managed to make it to my favorites list for one reason or another... And surprisingly enough, there were a couple series that managed to make it to my list of all time favorites! That being said, here's my list of my top 15 reads of 2015 in no particular order.

Slammer by Tabatha Vargo is one of those books that has stuck with me since I read it. I loved it and I hated it and in the end there was no way that I couldn't add it to this list. If you haven't read this one yet I highly recommend going in blind! Read my review.
