Top 15 Best Books I Read in 2015

Happy Top Ten Tuesday over at the Broke and the Bookish!

I couldn't choose just ten, so I chose fifteen of my favorite reads this year. Each of these books changed my way of thinking this year and continues to linger in my thoughts. Many carried over from my list halfway through the year, and some I read in the past couple months.

1. Kindred by Octavia Butler

2. Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg

3. The Writing Life by Annie Dillard

4. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore

5. Dispatch from the Future by Leigh Stein

6. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

7. The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

8. The Bondwoman's Narrative by Hannah Crafts

9. Every Last One by Anna Quindlen

10. Brave New Girls Ed. Mary Fan and Paige Daniels

11. The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

12. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

13. The Creation of Eve by Lynn Cullen

14. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

15. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith

I had plenty of books I enjoyed this year but I do feel particularly meaningful books were thin on the ground for me. Your list looks like it has a little more heft to it! I did have the last book in the Lunar chronicles on my list, Winter, which I enjoyed very much, obviously.

I still need to finish the Graceling series so I'm happy to hear that the last one is a great read :D

@Stephanie I do feel like I had some especially meaningful reads, particularly late in the year. I need to get to the rest of the Lunar chronicles!

@Amber I liked all the books, but I honestly thought Bitterblue was the best of the three!
