My Reads for 2015

Another year just flew by! It was my big YA debut year, too, and although I don’t feel like my life has changed drastically, I’ve been floored by the readers who’ve taken the time to reach out to me–thank you! I hope it’s just the start of a longer book writing career.

The past couple of years, I’ve posted a list of all the books I read (not including graphic novels and manga, of which I’ve read many) on this blog to celebrate New Year’s. Why do I do this and not post every book I read on Goodreads? I feel weird publicly assigning grades and criticizing other people’s novels as an author, especially since if I don’t love something, it might just be my own tastes, you know? This is a way for me to celebrate how much I’ve read each year.

  1. Split Second by Kasie West
  2. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
  3. The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
  4. Monk and the New Lieutenant by Hy Conrad

Each year I’ve read fewer books, but I did spend a lot of time reading graphic novels and manga I’m not counting on this list–over 100 volumes, in fact!


Author of YA speculative fiction and cozy paranormal mysteries.

    1. Definitely check out Raven Cycle! Since the last book is almost out, you can marathon them all at once. Six of Crows was a bit slow for me at first, but I’m about halfway through and it’s really picking up speed!
