This post may contain affiliate links, but I’m only recommending books that are on my own to-read list this year. All book images are from Amazon.com.
I have always been an avid reader, that is up until I had my son two years ago. I even ran a fairly successful book blog and wrote book reviews like 1-2x a week. Now all I read are books like Goodnight Moon and The Cat in the Hat. As one of my personal progress goals for the year, I am determined to start reading again. This list of 15 books to read in 2015 has book recommendations that cover a little of everything – young adult, historical, dramatic, and romance. I like pretty much every genre, so I’ve included an option for whatever mood I’m in. Next time you need a new book to read, check out this list, and I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll enjoy. Some of these books come from best-seller lists, some come from book recommendations my Facebook fans provided, and some come from book recommendations from my friend Rebecca from Living Better Together.
I’ve included a note about why the book is on my list. Click on the book title to be taken to Amazon for more details, a full synopsis, etc.
