TTT: Favorite Books of 2015 (So Far)

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015. Here are my 5 Star books of 2015 (excluding re-reads). Oddly, with the exception of #5, these are all children’s books. I guess reading with my kids heightens my enjoyment of books. 🙂

  1. The Magna Carta by Roberta Baxter
  2. Bink & Gollie by Kate DiCamillo, Alison McGhee, and Tony Fucile
  3. Zita the Spacegirl series by Ben Hatke
  4. Mustache Baby series by Bridget Heos and Joy Ang
  5. Devoted by Jennifer Matthieu
  6. The Book of Dragons by E. Nesbit
  7. Icky Bug Colors by Jerry Pallotta and David Biedryzycki
  8. A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park
  9. John, Paul, George & Ben by Lane Smith
  10. Elephant and Piggie series and the Pigeon series by Mo Willems

    Sadly, I don’t have much call to read children’s books. I already feel kind of creepy going into the YA and middle grade sections in the library, lol. It’s fun that reading with your kids ups the fun of a book! Nice unique list!

      Yeah, knowing that a lot of my readers don’t read children’s books made me feel a little weird about this list. At least it’s unique. 😉 If you enjoy MG, I’d highly recommend A Single Shard. It’s historical fiction about a potter in 12th century Korea, inspired by the Thousand Cranes Vase:
