E-ARCs and Ebooks I got in 2015

Whew, can't believe 2015 has passed! It's 2016 and I'm still the same as ever. Well, guess what. I just started this blog last year on March... or February, I think, and I already got a few e-ARCs and Ebooks for reviewing! I know they're not hard copies like I prefer them to be. But, it still counts as something. The thing is, I live in the middle of nowhere and no publishers would send a free hard copy to someone who lives outside of the U.S or England or Canada.
Okay, so now I'm gonna show you some titles of the review copies or ARCs I got in 2015. They're all electronic, of course. Some of them might have been reviewed before and you can read their reviews if you click the link (if there's one).
