Top Five Books I've Read So Far In 2015

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's prompt is:

Top Five Books I've Read So Far In 2015

The original prompt was to list my top ten books, but considering I've only read 21 books so far this year (!) I thought a top five list would be more reflective of my favorites so far.  Note to self: now that you're over your April/May reading slump, READ FASTER.  



Such a beautiful, simple, honest, heartfelt story.  This is the only book to have made me cry this year.

Just when I thought I couldn't love Ms. Maas any more, she gives me this phenomenal Beauty and the Beast retelling.

This was my biggest surprise this year.  I'm no sucker for love stories, but this one got me good.

How I loved this poignant and funny look into how memory and time affects identity.

I think everyone should own this book of poetry.  It really hit home for me.

What are your favorite books you've read so far this year?

  1. Good call on choosing only 5. I didn't do this list because I have only read 23 books and 10 seemed like a lot.

    1. Agreed. I usually read more by this point, but my April/May reading slump has me behind on my reading goals.

  2. The Wrath and the Dawn has been on my radar. I also just purchased What Alice Forgot and can't wait to read it.
