The First of the "Best of 2015 Books" Lists

The 2015 literary awards season is coming to an end; now it’s time for the Best Books of 2015 lists to be published.  The first has already appeared:  Amazon has released its Top 100 Books of the Year

I have read 3 of the 20 titles in the Literature/Fiction category:
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara (reviewed on August 10)
A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler (reviewed on August 2)
Orhan's Inheritance by Aline Ohanesian (reviewed on August 27)

From their Mysteries/Thrillers category, I’ve also read 3 of the 20 titles:
Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith (reviewed on October 31)
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (reviewed on July 25)
The Hanging Girl by Jussi Adler-Olsen (reviewed on September 16)

Library Journal has also come out with its list.  Check out http://reviews.libraryjournal.com/2015/11/best-of/best-books-2015-more-of-the-best/.

And Publishers Weekly just issued its list as well:  http://best-books.publishersweekly.com/pw/best-books/2015.

Look for more of these lists to be published in the next few weeks.
