Christine Chhun: Production Editor Lovestruck and Entangled Teen
Winter by Marissa Meyer. It was a great conclusion to a thrilling trilogy.
Hmm. I’ve read so many good books this year, my most favorite of which are of course the ones I edited! Some non-Entangled books of 2015 that stood out to me were The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey, Bone Gap by Laura Ruby, Black Iris by Leah Raeder, A School for Unusual Girls by Kathleen Baldwin, and Start Me Up by Nicole Michaels.
Down the Rabbit Hole by Holly Madison. I’ve actually never sat down and read a memoir before this year and it turned out to be my favorite book. I was obsessed with The Girls Next Door on E! and have been following her career since then, so it was fascinating to read about things she had stayed silent about for years.
This is a nearly impossible question, but if I had to narrow it down, I’d say my favorite book of 2015 was The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. It was suspenseful and atmospheric and a total page-turner.
Believe it or not, I have to say the YA submission I’m reading right now. I simply can’t get over this author’s voice and hope to bring this one to you some time in 2016!
Pretty far from romance… The Fifth Season, by NK Jemisin. Mind-boggling dark fantasy by a brilliant author full of diverse, deep characters and a story so compelling I read the entire 500 page book in one sitting. Catapulted Jemisin up to the top of my list of favorite fantasy authors.
Wow hmm I finally read the entire Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy (after sitting on my nightstand for a while) and I was blown away. Definitely my favorite read of 2015!
Meredith Johnson: Social Media
Decisions…decisions… This was the year to say goodbye to so many of my favorite series. The Revolution of Ivy by Amy Engel totally tops my list. I could not put it down. Bidding farewell to Ivy and Bishop was hard. The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead was another favorite. I’m still mourning Sydney and Adrian…I just NEED more of them.
