My 10 Best books of 2015

 

After a year of reading some wonderful books it has been an extremely difficult choice to choose just 10 as my best books of the year. But after thinking long and hard I have made the choices.

These 10 books are the ones that have stayed with me long after the final page has been turned and just writing them down here again makes me want to re-read them. I have reviewed all of them and put links to the reviews below the photos.The first 3 are my top 3, the rest are in no particular order.
