Maybe this is a bit late, but I decided to do a top ten list of the books I read in 2015, because while I read a lot, there were only a few that were worth recommending.
These are in no particular order:
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I enjoyed this classic soo0 much. Always read classics.
- Argo: How the CIA and Hollywood Pulled Off the Most Audacious Rescue In History by Antonio Mendez and Mike Baglio. This book was ridiculously awesome and taught me a lot about my country. If you haven’t read it yet, do it. And, no, watching the movie doesn’t count.
- Abigail Adams by Woody Holton. Abigail Adams has always been a hero of mine, but I respect her way more now. In a time when women didn’t have many rights, she decided that she would change that. She’s one of the first women to write a will (because legally anything she owned was actually her husband’s). She’s the coolest and Woody Holton did a great job showing her flaws as well as her attributes.
- Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. This is only the first volume and I am anxious to get my hands on the second. The art is good. The stories are captivating, and it’s one of those books I could walk away from and come back to, which I appreciated.
- Written In Red, Murder of Crows, and Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop. This series has captivated me. I’m in love, but I can’t say that I have any character crushes. It’s a first. The next book comes out in March and I can hardly wait.
- The Body Book by Cameron Diaz. Cameron made it easy to talk about the body and I understand some things about myself better now. I like the honesty and the pictures.
- First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen. I waited for this for so long and it didn’t disappoint. This was my favorite SAA book and I love it.
- Sweep In Peace by Ilona Andrews. I love this series. I hope there’s another one.
- Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire. I liked this book, however, I didn’t like the sequel, A Local Habitation. I’m wary about reading the third.
- The Lost Art of Learning by Dorothy L. Sayers. This is basically an essay, but absolutely brilliant and important.
So there you have it. My top ten from 2015.
