Looking for a new book club read? Here are my top books from 2015. Start with the Outlander series if you haven’t yet, and share your other additions!
As I was transitioning from my Nook to my Kindle last weekend, I realized… I read A LOT in 2015. How?
I know. It seems unlikely. But, I find my time. Mostly in the evenings after the kids go to bed. It’s my way to unwind. I also listen to books, which I LOVE. Emptying the dishwasher, putting away clothes, grocery shopping, and tidying are all chores made less awful with a great story to entertain me along the way.
I long ago swore that I would always read actual paper-based books. Then I discovered my Nook. One little device, thousands of books. Plus instant gratification of the next book when I fall in love with a series.
I liked my Nook, until I purchased the Kindle Voyage. I adore this reader. The main reason I purchased it was because of the built-in back light so I can read in bed without disturbing Jon. But it has great battery life, touch and swipe sensors to turn the page, but the best part? The Owner’s Library.
With Amazon Prime membership you can borrow one book from the Kindle Unlimited library per month for no fee. Being the reader that I am, I upgraded to Kindle Unlimited for $9.99/mo. which includes up to ten books at any given time on “indefinite loan” and many with free WhisperSync – meaning I can listen to them through Audible as well. Woot woot!
Consequently, I’ve been plowing books and I’ve read a lot of awesome ones recently. Thought I’d share a few top picks with y’all, and hope you’ll do the same! Just finished Sharp Objects and need a new book to download. Recommendations anyone?
In no particular order:
Sharp Objects, Gillian Flynn
Code Named Verity, Elizabeth Wein
Before He Finds Her, Michael Kardos
A Town Like Alice, Nevil Shute
Yes Please, Amy Poehler
Furiously Happy, Jenny Lawson
Big Little Lies, Liane Moriarty
Church of Marvels, Leslie Parry
Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline
The Darkest Hour, Tony Schumacher
The Island, Victoria Hislop
All the Light We Cannot See, Anthony Doerr
The Nightingale, Kristin Hannah
Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins
The Good Girl, Mary Kubica
What Alice Forgot, Liane Moriarty
The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood
Secrets of a Charmed Life, Susan Meissner
And last but not least, I finished up the Outlander series. To. Die. For. And now, that theirs an Outlander TV series? Even better! The 8 books in this still-to-be-continued series will take you more than a year to get through (each book boasts near 1,000 pages), but it’s well worth the investment! Start here:
Diana Gabaldon, Outlander
