My Favorite Books of 2015, and Then Some

love and other ways of dyingIn 2015, I read some really awesome books and whittled down my list to my top 15 but as the year ended I was compelled to add two more books. My list now contains 11 fiction titles and 6 nonfiction titles, or 17 in all. If you asked me which were my top choices I would give you two from each category. My top two Fiction titles are Kitchens of the Great Midwest and A Man Called Ove.  My favorite Non-Fiction titles have to be Love & Other Ways of Dying  and The Only Street in Paris.  This list is all over the place from heartbreaking memoirs to historical fiction to a book with a great quirky character. Enjoy these while I get back to my reading. I’m really enjoying the book I just started and you may see it on my “Best Of” 2016 next January!
