Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme, since it’s the halfway point of 2015, is the Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015.
I always find it interesting to look back over the books I’ve read over a certain period of time and think about what ones stood out to me. It’s a good way to assess the quality and diversity of my reading. Looking back over the 60+ books I’ve read in 2015 so far left me feeling a bit… underwhelmed. I’ve read some great books this year, but I finished selecting my 10 books wishing that it had been a little harder to decide. I’m not sure yet how to fix that in the second half of the year, but I’m going to try to read more diversely.
The 4 Best Novels, so far:
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (my review)
