I was going to complain about 2015 being a shitty year overall, but this was the year I got my first book published AND I went to Bizarro Con! So, I can say 2015 was shitty 11 out 12 months.
I'm not going to do a big recap on the year. Instead, I'll pick my top reads of the year.
These are not necessarily the best books released in 2015, but the best books I've read this year. And if you click on the titles, you too can feast your eyes on these exquisite books. After you buy them.
And, if you can, leave a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. It helps authors. It helps A LOT.
Oh yeah, all the lists are in alphabetical order. And they are all top 6s, instead of top 5s or top 10s. Because 6 is a nice number.
Let's get to it :)))
First up, the top 6 books released in 2015 which I haven't read yet, but am most excited about reading in 2016:
Michael Cisco's Animal Money
John Skipp's The Art Of Horrible People
Carlton Mellick III's Bio Melt
Max Booth III's How To Successfully Kidnap Strangers
Michael J. Seidlinger's The Strangest
