Best of 2015 in Collector of Book Boyfriends and Girlfriends

What a year we had! 

So much happened in one year. One year ago we were only 3 girls, now our blogger team is bigger, 9 is a good number, right? With a bigger group, we have the chance to support more authors and let all our followers know why we loved their books.

We want to share with you all our 2015 Top 3 of Authors, Books and of course, Book Boyfriends/Book Girlfriends (we are the Collector of Book Boyfriends after all *wink*) But please be assured, it was a no easy task to make these lists because we read TONS of amazing books this year!

Please, let us know your Top 3’s of this year on the comments.

Happy New Year everyone! We wish you all a year full of good health, love, joy and success.

Top 3 Books  

  1. Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy 

… it was one of the best friends-to-lovers-books I’ve ever read, the fact that it was M/M was just a bonus for me. I was amazed by how easily two authors could fuse their writing and make for such a beautiful book!

  1. The Ground Rules by Roya Carmen – Review

… What a beautiful mess!!! That book made me see, that you have to look outside of your ‘normal’ sometimes to live and love full throttle. And OMG, did that book make me fan myself… LOL

  1. Find You In The Dark by A. Meredith Walters – Review

… If I ever read about a ‘damaged’ hero, it certainly was Clay. Oh my, that book tugged on my heartstrings.

Top 3 authors

  1. Jane Harvey-Berrick – Her books

… Thank you, for writing so amazing books and being so awesome. You’re always approachable to your readers and then some. Thank you for an amazing year with you and I’m looking forward to what’s to come next!

  1. Tiffany Reisz – Her books

… Thank you, for writing one of my favorite series ever. The ‘Original Sinners’ changed my life for the better and I’ll forever be grateful for it. Next year will be a completely new experience with you – and I’m really excited for it!

  1. Colleen Hoover – Her books

… Thank you for two of my favorite books this year. You’re my queen of angst! I’m looking forward to next year and the heartache you’ll put me through then  LOL

Top 3 BBF’s

  1. Soren, aka Father Marcus Stearns from “The Saint” by Tiffany Reisz – Review
  2. Sebastian Hunter from “Semper Fi” by Jane Harvey-Berrick – Review
  3. Clayton Reed from “Find you in the dark” by A. Meredith Walters – Review

A little word… I’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ for all authors, who have made this a spectacular book-year for me. I’ve read many books, that didn’t only entertain me, but changed my life for the better. Thank you, for giving me a part of your souls and even thank you for the heartbreak that this can bring sometimes! I can’t name all authors and books I fell in love with this year, but there were quite a few and some books will stay with me forever, I’m sure of it. Granted, there were authors that surprised me indefinitely and others that disappointed me. But I will keep 2015 in mind as a year, that brought many new books into my life, to cherish for all time. And now, I’m very excited to see, what y’all have planned for us next year 🙂

Thank God for 2015. It was an amazing year full of great friends and books. I was blessed with the blogger community, especially my blogger partners, because they make this blogging obsession more fun. I was blessed with all the reading community, it’s a pleasure to share all my crazy thoughts about books with you all. I was blessed with amazing authors, who are not only very talented but also wonderful people. I was blessed with great publicists and PR that make the magic of publishing possible. And of course, I was blessed with lots and lots of flawless books, with the best stories, book boyfriends and book girlfriends. I couldn’t ask for more. I wish you all the best 2016 ever, full of love, success and tons of books.
