Top Ten Books I've Read So Far in 2015

Hey all!  I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke and The Bookish.  It's the first one I've done in ages!

This week's topic is: Top Ten Books I've Read So Far in 2015
Now I don't have ten favorites yet (the year's only half over!) but I do have a few that stand out as being my favorites so far.

1.) Missoula by John Krakauer - This book was so rage-inducing but it was so well-written and about such a fascinating topic.  As someone who works at a university that recently had a sexual assault scandal, it felt very relevant.  I think this is a book everyone should read.

2.) The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah - Seriously, the best book I've read this year.  It's absolutely beautiful and heart-breaking and inspiring all at once.  

3.) The Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder - I re-read the Little House series this Spring starting with By The Shores of Silver Lake and enjoyed them all so much.  They were some of my favorite books as a child and it was comforting to read them again.

4.) Inside the O'Briens by Lisa Genova - This book kind of fell into my lap but it was a wonderful read. 

5.) Redeployment by Phil Klay - I still haven't given a rating to this book because it feels unrateable but it is definitely one of my favorites for the year.  It's a book of short stories about soldiers' experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan and at home.  I don't really have words to describe how I felt reading this book but it definitely stuck with me.

What books have you loved in 2015 so far?


  1. I haven't done a reread of the Little House books in so long! They were my favorite books forever and ever growing up though, so it might be time to cycle back through them!

  2. Nightingale will be on my favorite list too.
