Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.
This Week’s Theme:
Top Ten Books Read in 2015 –
Thinker Awards Edition
If you remember last year, I expanded the “Top Ten Books Read in 2015” to create my own little award show.
So I’m bringing that back! Again, I remind you that the only requirements are that they involve book/comics I’ve experienced for the first time in 2015.
I’ve enlisted the help of Jenna @ Reading With Jenna to include her choice picks as well!

Now it’s your turn! Let me know what you think of some of these (or all of them if you’re willing). But in particular: let me know which book you read during 2015 that you would award the “Best Overall” accolade.
