Happy New Year!
I didn’t read nearly enough books in 2015 to do an official recap or top ten or anything like that. But since I didn’t actually do much blogging about what I read either, I did want to to share a few of the books I read and loved in 2015.
I read 29 books this year. I gave 5 stars to eight of them but two were rereads. Here are my 6 favorite new-to-me reads in 2015, in the order in which I read them:
Betsy and the Great World | Maud Hart Lovelace | print | 5 stars
Where’d You Go, Bernadette? | Maria Semple | audio | 5 stars
Why Can’t I Be You | Allie Larkin | print | 5 stars
A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty | audio | 5 stars
I’ll Give You the Sun | Jandy Nelson | print | 5 stars
Who Do You Love | Jennifer Weiner | 5 stars
Why Can’t I Be You is probably my top pick of the bunch. It was predominately a women’s fiction/young adult year for me as I tend to gravitate toward those genres when my reading motivation wanes, as it very much did in 2015.

My favorite read of 2015 was The Crossover by Kwame Alexander. It made me want to get back into reading poetry…
…as for yours, I’ll have to seek out Why Can’t I Be You. Going to look now. No, really.
