The best books of 2015 lists are being published in the newspapers these days and I have collected the best of the ‘best lists’. I don’t necessarily agree with all their choices, but there are lots of interesting books here.
The books that keep reappearing are:
Andrea Wulf’s non-fiction The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt’s New World, which sounds like a riveting read if you’re interested in ecology and natural science, and perhaps even if you’re not?
Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, an African American father’s letter to his 15 year old trying to make sense of racial injustices in contemporary America (which I’ve added to my own reading list.)
The Booker Prize nominated A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler, a family saga set in Baltimore which was also nominated for the Man Booker Prize.
Have a look for yourself!
