2015 has been an amazing year for literature and a number of notable books have been released. If you are looking for a gift for the upcoming holidays or just a new read, our top 10 bestseller list is for you.
The Girl On the Train
Everyone in this book is absolutely terrible, and as a result, this book is a masterpiece in character study and development. It’s also a well-written, precisely plotted psychological thriller, and deftly sketches one unreliable narrator after another.
More ridiculous adventures with the author of Let’s Pretend this Never Happened. You’ll laugh out loud, cry a bit and get even closer to one of the funniest women in social media.
A compelling, enrapturing read! I knew how it had to end, but the intimate details, exposed secrets and the vibrant, visual narrative had me praying that maybe this time it would stay afloat.
The Library at Mount Char
Dark, demented, and drop-dead funny, Scott Hawkins’ twisted fantasy morality play is the best genre debut in years!
Stranger Than We Can Imagine
A Bill Bryson-esque romp through the twentieth century. Forget the Wars and the Berlin Wall. This is all about relativity, TV, sex, and SciFi. The big ideas that blew up the century… and held it together.
We Should All Be Feminists
In concise yet powerful words, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie describes how we can achieve equality among the sexes. She will make you believe that change is possible with her passionate voice and indomitable spirit.
Humans of New York: Stories
It may sound clichéd, but Humans of New York: Stories makes you feel human. Flipping through these pages will have you giggling and in tears. Humbling and touching, it is a testament to the sorrows and strengths of humanity.
Seductive and thought-provoking, Hausfrau is an insightful character study into a modern-day Anna Karenina. Love her or hate her, you’ll definitely want to talk about her.
Our Souls At Night
The message in Kent Haruf’s last book is clear, and consistent with all his other work. Live life. Live it today. Live it as if all your actions are eternal.
A spirited story of a shape-shifting girl with a powerful message about the importance of friendship and loyalty, but also enough mayhem and hilarity to keep the action going!
