It’s the most wonderful time of the year… and if you’re like me, this is the time of year to scour all the awesome best of 2015 lists. Sure, best of lists aren’t always comprehensive, they may lack objectivity, they cannot account for everyone’s taste, and I would even go as far to say that they could be wrong. None-the-less, they are fun because you can devise your own list, compare with your friends, flat-out disagree or bond over shared favorites. Best of all, for those time-crunched individuals during a time-crunched part of the year, these lists help to pare down your options and feel good about taking a chance on a book, an album, or whatever your interest might be. Listed below is my best of 2015 – Books for Kids and Teens.
