My Favorite Reads of 2015

  1. The 7th Flavia de Luce book
    One of my favorite characters in literature.
  2. Roald Dahl
    I (re)read almost all of his books this year. I love him. I also highly recommend his two autobiographies. He led a fascinating life.
  3. The Rent Collector
    I reluctantly read this for book club and loved it. An amazing story of overcoming dire circumstances and the power of reading!
  4. Maisie Dobbs
    Strong lady detective in the 1920s. Reminded me of my love for mysteries and England. I'm now on book five in the series.
  5. The Blue Castle
    Why are people wasting their time with Anne of Green Gables when this book exists? Kidding, I love Anne, but this book won my heart. Please read it now. I plan to gift it to everyone I have ever known.
  6. Persepolis
    My first graphic novel. A powerful story that I didn't know much about. It was the perfect format for a tragic story.
  7. Liar & Spy + First Light + Goodbye Stranger
    I'm in love with Rebecca Stead's children and YA novels. Unpredictable and lovely.
  8. The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto
    I will immediately buy anything by Mitch Albom. He once called me "tall". It's just a statement of fact, but I hold it dear.
  9. We Should All be Feminists
    A great TED talk. Really fascinating points that really made me think. Should be read by everyone.
