I'm a little late to the Best of 2015 lists, but I figured a couple weeks late to the game isn't the end all be all.
Plus, everyone, or at least those that read, could always use a couple great books to add to their To Be Read list.
Therefore, today I am giving you Megan Ruth's aka MY BEST BOOKS of 2015!
The Best Books of 2015
According to Megan Ruth
My Overall Favorite Book of the Year:
I am a big fan of Sarah Dessen, but this year she hit it out of the park with her latest book. I love the character development, depth of the story, and how realistic and relatable it was. This is a fabulous young adult book that teens and up will enjoy (mostly girls for this one). It is a clean read, but underage drinking is mentioned.

My Favorite Picture Book:
I just love this picture book about a girl who is a rockstar engineer at a very young age. Rosie creates and builds for people she loves. I love the message that girls can be engineers too, and I love the fun illustrations as well.
This book is great. My son and my daughter both enjoy it almost as much as I do.
My Favorite Children's/Juvenile Literature Book:
aka Kids Chapter Books.
Selznick is fantastic. He creates absolutely beautiful and fascinating stories by combining the perfect words with amazing pictures. Wonderstruck is an all around fun read that kids (both boys and girls alike) and adults will enjoy.
The Fly Guy books are all around fanastic early readers aka beginning chapter books. I love the chapter books and these Presents books, aka non-fiction books, are even better. I love these books for boys and girls alike in the Preschool through 2nd grade age/reading level.
My Favorite YA/Young Adult/Teen Book:
I actually enjoyed all three books in this Legend triology; it is honestly a well written dystopian series with a solid storyline. Boys and girls alike will fly through these books; they are page turners! Marie Lu is a great author!
I have been a fan of Lockhart since her book, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks. This book has the same writing style with solid characters and great character development, but I loved the ending of this one. it's a fun one that I honestly did not see coming.
My Favorite Adult Literature Book:
I've never read a story like this, and I'm not sure I want to read another one like it either. However, I'm not much of a horror/ghosts book reader; though, I do think they are fun every now and again. This book is disturbing on many levels, but it is well written and one I still remember and even think about at times. There is language and some not so great/wholesome scenes, but it is still a great book if you are into those kinds of books.
Picoult always has great books, and her latest one is no exception. I thoroughly enjoyed this read. I loved the complex storyline, the unexpected/mystery aspect of it, and the fact that I learned so much about elephants.
My Favorite Non-Fiction Book:
This graphic novel about the civil rights movement is absolutely fantastic. I can't wait until I am able to read the other books in this series.
I've given you my favorites. What are your favorites so I can add them to my TBR this year?
Happy Fantastic Book Reading!
