Best Reads of 2015


Out of 19 (70 total) books that I rated a 4/5 or above, these 6 made my Best Reads list!



1.  Inside the O'Briens (Genova) ~ Realistic Fiction










3.  Calling Me Home (Kibler) ~ Historical Fiction










5.  Igniting a Passion for Reading (Layne) ~ Professional Non-Fiction










Regarding books (being that this is a book blog and all), I hope that 2016 brings us all lots of great reads.  In all else, much health, joy and happiness.

  2. Interesting. I think of you as reading mostly thrillers/mysteries, but none of your top 6 were thrillers. Maybe you don't read so many thrillers and I only notice the mystery titles?
    I'll write down 1,3 and 6 titles for future reference. (I've already read/browsed the Fast Metabolism Diet. I just need to 'do' it. Did you try it?)

    1. Raidergirl3 ~ I noticed that, too!!! (no thrillers in best reads) I still mostly read thrillers/suspense, but apparently none of them stood out this year. :(

      Don't just write 1, 3, and 6 down . . . READ THEM! :) Sooooo good.

      I'll respond to the FMD question in an email (probably tomorrow).

  3. I haven't read any of these, Joy, but Calling Me Home is on my TBR pile. I hope I enjoy it as much as you did.
