FMA’s Favorites of 2015! #Giveaway

Posted December 26, 2015 by FMA in Giveaways, Special Post


Favorites of 2015



As I wrapped up 2015, I wanted to take a look back at several things, My Most Read Authors of the Year and my favorites. When thinking of all the outstanding books I read this year, I first took a look at my Favorites by Month.  Then I tried to narrow down my favorite. That wasn’t possible because my internal dialogue went something like this: “This one!” “No, definitely this one.” “Well, but this was outstanding.”  My indecision means I can’t narrow down my favorite book of the year, but rather my Top 15 Books of the Year. (Cop out? eh, maybe, but I put the blame solely on the authors.) My Favorite Series of the Year was much easier to discern. There were others that were so good, I had to mention them. There were many “quote-worthy” quotes this year, and I found a few that really stood out to me, Some Favorite Quotes. Don’t miss the giveaway and a link to my friend’s Favorites Lists –

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay





























“Maybe it’s okay to no longer be the person we thought we were meant to be. Maybe it’s okay to just be who we are now and accept that.”

Brittainy C. Cherry, Art & Soul

“He looked like a whisper sounds. Sweet, gentle and romantic. It was making me dizzy”

Brittainy C. Cherry, Art & Soul

“His kisses tasted like forever soaked in always.”

Brittainy C. Cherry, Loving Mr. Daniels

Emma Chase, Appealed

“But if you truly own her, own her heart, if she is truly yours, abandoned to you, you cannot discard her. She is where she belongs, hence the ownership.” “Possessions don’t have thoughts or feelings; they’re inanimate objects.” “Ah, but the women are never inanimate, not the way I do it.”

    My favorites would have to be Untamed by SC Stephens, Sweet Soul by Tillie Cole, and Scarless and Sacred by Bethany Kris, I just recieved and arc for that one and it was so good.

    I loved The Girl in 6E and Kyland. There was a few that I have on my TBR. I am about to read The Air He Breathes.

  13. Janja

    Along with some of your books, My list to top of 2015 is also Katherine Allerd: The Sweet Gum Tree( i know old book but i just discover that beauty last month),Kathryn Andrews: Blue Horizons,T.M.Frazier: King,Tyran and Lawless and finally Tillie Cole: Souls Unfractured.

  14. FMA

    Janja, I adored Sweet Gum Tree!! You have some on authors on your list I haven’t read: TM Frazier, Kathryn Andrews and Tillie Cole.

  15. Janja

    T.M.Frazier and Tillie Cole are dark read if you like them but Kathryn Andrews is a beautiful standalone love story…
    This year i was trying to read different generes and trying out new authors and i must say that i’ll be doing the same also in 2016.

  16. FMA

    I love that you do that! I read a couple of “new to me” authors this year. But I don’t think nearly enough. Sometimes I find myself reading the same “type of books” because I read the same authors over and over. I think I will make this a new goal for 2016!

  17. FMA

    Judy, I have so many sitting on my Kindle, I never know what to read next? lol Did you have a favorite(s) this year?

  18. Tersea

    I’ve just added a whole heap of books to my TBR???
    47 Things, corrupt, cowboy endings, command,
    So many amazing books this year

  19. FMA

    There were TONS of great books, I agree Tersea! I realized after reading everyone elses favorites, that I missed out on some good ones! I am adding them to my TBR for 2016!

  20. FMA

    I haven’t read anything new from her. But I did love her Consequences series when I read it a couple of years ago. I will have to check this one out! Thanks!

  21. AndieLovesBooks

    Happy New Year 🙂
    This year was about sport romances for me, The Off Campus series by Elle Kennedy, Game On series by Kristen Callihan, Kissing Madeline by Lex Martin, Rusk University by Cora Carmack <3 And not sport themed, but Rush by Emma Scott is a top read, too.

  22. FMA

    Happy New Year, to you too! Great choices, Andie! I need to catch up with some of those, i.e. Callahan, Martin and Cormack! I haven’t read those books.
