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.
