Top Ten Books I read in 2015
This is a little strange for me. I looked back over all the books I have read this year (91 out of my 115 goal-oh well), and I realize there was no rhythm or reason to my book selections in 2015. I think I might want to change that in 2016!
So here are the books I enjoyed reading the most.
A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
It by Stephen King
Circling the Sun by Paula McLain
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin
At the Waters Edge by Sara Gruen
I still want to read several of these. But not “It”…. i have a clown phobia haha! My TTT
Me too- but I did love it anyway!
Hey, you could get in a book or two more, especially if you pick up some YA. 🙂 91 is still pretty impressive!
Code Name Verity was a bit painful, but a good story.
Thanks! I think I might only add one or two more- happy with the 91~
Several of these are on my wish list. Here is my list http://videoclimbersvariations.blogspot.com/2015/12/top-ten-tuesday-my-top-reads-for-2015.html
You’ve got some good ones here, especially The Handmaid’s Tale and Code Name Verity. IT terrified me when I read it years ago. I’ve heard so much about A Little Life but haven’t read it.
Little life was a difficult read, but well worth it
Still Alice is definitely up there as a favourite of mine for the year – if not, the favourite!
Me Before You and Code Name Verity — two of my favorite books, despite how much they made me cry. 🙂 At the Water’s Edge and Still Alice are two of my to-read books for 2016. Great list!
Swans topped my list. I can’t wait to read A Little Life!
I had an oral reading student select an excerpt from Code Name Verity to read for the UIL competition last year. She was so enthusiastic about her piece!
