What a wonderful year 2015 has been for books. It's always hard to choose "best of" when there were so many great books to choose from.
By far and away, the best book I've read of 2015 was Fish in a Tree. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Ally has dyslexia. But this is a book for anyone who feels like a misfit. It captures so perfectly the pain of not fitting in with kids at school as well as the complete awesomeness when people stand up for others.Read the whole review here: http://foldedpagesdistillery.
There are a lot of things I could call this reading year for myself personally, but I'm sticking with "2015: The Year of Percy Jackson". I read and became obsessed with Percy this year and he entered and secured his place in my top three fandoms. (Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Percy Jackson)
As it stands, I read 125 books this year and need new glasses because of it. Even still there were so many books I didn't get to read! Thanks to everyone for recommending awesome books to me this year!
So here is my Top 10 for books released in 2015 (my copy of Their Fractured Light arrived yesterday, so even though I haven't read it, I kind of think it would have made my list.)
