June 30, 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015. Here are my faves so far (click on the book title to be taken to my review for each one):

Adult Fiction

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – One of only three 5 star reads this year. I can’t wait for the sequel in September.

Give Me Your Answer True by Suanne Laqueur – Laqueur is a new author for me this year, and I am so glad I have found her. Her writing is so amazingly beautiful.

Girl Before a Mirror by Liza Palmer – A heartwarming read that is perfect for summer!

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin – Another heartwarming read with a strong bookish theme.

Young Adult Fiction

Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman – I’m now a Shusterman fan, and this book gives his readers a glimpse into his personal life and his son’s struggles with mental illness.

Unwind by Neal Shusterman – I enjoyed the unique concept of this one, and the action will keep you engaged.

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven – Another 5 star read that I keep recommending to others. This is a must read for everyone!

Children’s Fiction

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling – I’m officially on the bandwagon and in love with Harry and the gang.

Stella by Starlight by Sharon Draper – A great book on the civil rights movement written from the perspective of a ten year old girl.

Wonder by R.J. Palacio – A great book that helps children appreciate differences.

What are your favorite books so far this year?

    I read Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper with a group of 4th/5th graders. The story is about a girl with cerebral palsy that is nonverbal & confined to a wheelchair. The story produced a lot of opportunities to discuss friendships and the treatment of people with disabilities.

      I’ve heard great things about Out of My Mind! I do want to read it soon! Fish in a Tree is another one that teaches compassion – about learning disabilities. It is currently the global read aloud with classes around the world Skyping about it!
