Best of 2015

Hey, lovelies! So I'm hoping to make this blog bigger and better in the new year. I feel like I always say that, but at least for now, I'm really motivated and excited. In addition, I'm hoping to really start up my personal blog, Infinite Golden Floors. At this point, I may still end up combining these two blogs, but I'd probably have to change my blog URL again, and I'd rather not. (Regardless, I'll be changing my Twitter handle.)

But let's talk about this past year! It's definitely been a rollercoaster of ups and downs, but overall, I would say I've had a good year, at least looking back now. I'll admit that I think more in school years/semesters than calendar years, so some of the beginning of the year is fuzzy, but I'm loving where I am now in college.

And here is my Best of 2015 list! Everything is listed in no particular order. (I've reviewed many of these, some won't be reviewed at all, and others will be reviewed in early 2016, by the way.)

Top 10 Reads of 2015

Honorable Mentions: I Crawl Through It by A.S. King, Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom, Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Top 2 Graphic Novels of 2015

I decided to just pick two despite having a read a few because most of the graphic novels I read were all within the same rating range and don't particularly stick out.

Top 10 Albums of 2015

(Though most of these were released in 2015, not all were. In addition, I didn't include albums for musicals.)

Honorable Mentions: Stand By You and Fight Song by Rachel Platten, Rabbits on the Run by Vanessa Carlton

Top 3 Movies of 2015

(I'm very bad at keeping track of movies I watch, so I've only looked at those released this past year. I didn't watch very many movies (probably around 5 in theaters), so.)

Honorable Mention: Avengers: Age of Ultron

Top 6 Shows of 2015

American Ballet Theater November 1st Performance (After You, Piano Concerto #1, The Brahms-Haydn Variations)

The Royal Ballet Junes 27th Performance

Happy New Year!

And that's a wrap! I hope you've all had a good year, and I hope the next year will bring even better things. Have a happy new year, lovelies! <3

What were your 2015 favorites? Do you make resolutions; what are some of yours?


  1. Your favorite books list contains so many titles that I've been meaning to read! Emery Lord's AMAZING twitter feed has convinced me to add her books to my TBR, but somehow I haven't gotten around to reading any yet. And seemingly everyone has been telling me to give Patrick Ness a shot, so picking up one of his books is a 2016 goal of mine.

    Also: have I mentioned how jealous I am that you live in NYC and can see so many Broadway shows? (Yes. Yes, I have. But I will shamelessly do it again.)

    Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful 2016 full of even more amazing books, albums, movies, and shows.

    1. I love Emery Lord and especially recommend Open Road Summer (though I could see more people enjoying The Start of Me and You). And you definitely should! This one was my first of his, but I'm currently one of his other books, More Than This.

      Awww, Boston's gonna be amazing for you too! Come visit me sometime! <3

      Thank you!

  2. Yes, I absolutely love love love Mumford and Son's new album! I also read and loved I'll Meet You There and I'll definitely take a look at your other top books of 2015. I have yet to read any of Emery Lord's books, but I am hoping to change that in the new year.

    Wishing you all the best and Happy New Year!

    1. Yeah! There's a lot of mixed opinions on it, and while I love their old stuff, I also love the new album for different reasons. :)

      You definitely should! Open Road Summer is one of my all time favorites.

      Happy New Year!

  3. I actually haven't read many of those books. I LOVED Every Last Word. That twist though. But I really want to read the Patrick Ness one. I was reading it but I put it down and never picked it back up, unfortunately :(


    – Nova @ Out of Time

    1. They're all amazing (obviously...that's why they're on the list :P)! YES ugh, ELW killed me in the best way. Awww, it's not for everyone but really resonated with me. Hope you'll enjoy it more when you pick it up again.


  4. EVERY LAST WORD AND ILL MEET YOU THERE FOREVER <3333 And I loveeeeed The Rest of Us Just Live Here. HAPPY NEW YEARRRR
