More rain here in Central Minnesota. While I do have a few more yard things to attend to…. I am still thankful for the rain over snow. I am never ready for snow and even more so this year.
I don’t think I have ever felt more out of the loop on what are the best of the best when it comes to books for 2015. I have not stayed on top of reading the great blogs that I enjoy or following up on the It’s Monday meme to see what everyone is reading. I have tried looking up best of the best on line and you can find many on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, Publisher Weekly… etc, but interestingly enough… they all seem to have their own lists of what is considered the best.
Here are a few that I found to be showing up consistently….
The Girl On The Train was released in January 2015. It was said to be “The next Gone Girl” and for that reason my interest was peaked… the book has an interesting synopsis referring to a woman who witnesses something while riding on the train. I read it. To put it lightly… I was not a fan. I was a not a fan to such a degree…. I went on to rant about it a bit on a post I called Girl Fight! Where I discussed why Amy from Gone Girl could take Rachel from Girl On The Train in a fight. It was a passionate post and one I discovered reading it again now… it was fun to see that old passion in me.
Released in February of 2015, Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale has been a book I have heard much about but have not gone there myself. This aversion I seen to have about WWII reads has got to stop as I know I am mission out on several great titles that I have yet to read (Unbroken included).
The Wright Brothers became available in May of 2015. This is one that I would like to read. I love non fiction and seeing this one of best of the best lists keeps this one on my “hope to read” list.
Between The Worlds and Me released July 2015. Has anyone read this? It sounds interesting.
Dead Wake by Erik Larson released in March 2015. I really enjoyed this one and just discovered I never reviewed it. (I have a LOT of review to catch up on). I have enjoyed everything I have read by this author.
I know there are so many more.
Have you read any of these? If so do you agree that these books are the best of the best? What books of 2015 am I missing?
Today I am cleaning up around the house and working on a few projects. Tonight I have the City Library Board meeting but for the most part it is a quiet day here which I am thankful for the time to just be quiet in my spirit. Enjoy your day and I wish for you time as well to just…. BE.
