Top Five Reads of the Year December 30, 2015

Shannon always finds the best books. Two of these are on my Monday Classics book clubs selections for the year. I’m adding the other three to that neverending TBR list.

Here are my five favorite reads of the year, a nice mix of old classics and new discoveries. Please post your favorite reads of the year in the comments. (These are books read during the past year and enjoyed, but not necessarily published in 2015.)

  1. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel (my essay on a kinder, gentler apocalypse)
  2. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
  3. The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
  4. A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
  5. Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer

Note: I don’t include rereads in my top 5 list. If I did, I would have to add The Haunting of Hill House, We Have Always Lived in the Castleand Frankenstein to this list.
