2015 was another hard year for narrowing down favorite books. I ended up with the very arbitrary criteria of choosing the books that I most connected with – through laughter (Hellhole), heartstrings (My Real Children), similar shared experiences (Anna and the French Kiss), or plain old awesome execution (Red Moon). I added an “honorable mention” section for favorite books I re-read.
Bean’s favorite books are included as well (for reference, she is 9). The thumbnails are books I read to her, the listed titles are ones she read herself. This past year was the first year she started independently reading chapter books. Before this, the only thing she would touch were graphic novels and manga. That is not a complaint by any means, as I see reading is reading is reading, and the graphic format is a gateway drug into other types of books.
