Best of 2015

Posted: January 19, 2016 by Vanessa in *Best of 2015

Here at EBR 2015 was a great year. Not only did we get through a record number of books, but we also participated in Mark Lawrence’s Blog-Off and were nominated for a Hugo. Again. We are that awesome. It was hard to limit the best books from 2015 because there were so many, but we do this for y’all so you can spend your time reading the best books possible. The books aren’t in any particular order and of course we didn’t read every book published this year. If we missed something, definitely leave us a comment.

    Is there an EBR Review for the Boy with the Porcelain Blade by Den Patrick?


  2. […] Elitist Book Reviews named Unbound one of their top books for 2015, with Revisionary as one of the most anticipated for 2016. […]

    I want to say thank you to each and every one of the Elitistbookreviews team, you guys are the best book reviewers out there. I thought about praising things in details but you all know what you do well already 🙂 Steve wrote a fantastic article about reviewing, which should be frontpaged. It changed the way I thought of being a critic.

    Back in 2010, not yet proficient in the world of books, I’ve found the old site and as a young guy it shepherd me in a direction that changed me to who I am now. Since my taste in books is mostly parallel with Steves, I want to thank him among others.

    But other genres are covered by wonderful reviewers as well, and here is a special shout out for Vanessa, she’s been outwriting you all for a while 🙂
