I had the best holiday break. I didn't do any blogging at all, I read very little (boo!), but I had load of special time with my kids--which is really fabulous! I didn't plan on doing a wrap-up of 2015, but I just keep thinking about some of my favorite books, and I just can't help myself. So here it is, people, a list of my favorite reads from 2015...keep in mind that doesn't necessarily mean they were published in 2015!
It Will Be Okay
This book was so sweet. Fear can be overwhelming, especially for a kiddo. Read it if you haven't already! My full review can be found HERE.
Good, classic adventure in this tale of brave siblings. A little bit dark, a whole lot fabulous. Read my full review HERE.
Rosario's Fig Tree
My Tearjerker Picture Book post should be updated to include this one. I cried. This book is just lovely. My review can be found HERE.
Wolfie the Bunny
*CAUTION! Ame Dyckman fan girl gushing ahead!*
Ame is so talented and so kind, y'all. This book is just an extension of who she is. I absolutely loved it, but then that's really no surprise. Read all my thoughts on it HERE.
I Will Fight Monsters for You
This book caught me by surprise. I really enjoyed how clever it is and I think you will too. Read about it HERE.
Two Speckled Eggs
Adored this book. Sometimes we find unlikely friends in life. I will be gifting this one all over the place, I'm sure. Read my review HERE.
The Disappearance of Emily H.
This book was suspenseful and still kid appropriate. A really fun read...read the full review HERE.
Molly Idle is ridiculously talented and she spotlights that fact, once again, in Rodeo Red. I can't imagine being that artistic... Read my full review (and see a few of Molly's amazing illustrations) HERE.
I think this was my favorite middle grade novel of the year, hands down. Read all about it HERE.
The Mermaid's Sister
This was a random read and I ended up loving it! Magical Realism just has a special place in my heart. Read my full review HERE.
Titles for Grown ups that I LOVED in 2015
Find the Good
This is one of those random grabs at the library and I ended up loving it! Such a feel-good book! Read my review HERE.
The Road to Becoming
This one was awesome. As Jenny's story unfolds, your heart breaks and you have to really take a look at your own life. Loved it. Read my review HERE.
For the Love
Wow. This book, y'all. It was amazing, but more than that, it connected me to a whole slew of fabulous women. This book will forever have a special place in my heart. Read my review HERE.
