Third Annual The Best of the End of the Year “Best of” Lists of 2015

Don’t worry, lists remained popular in 2015, and I’m willing to bet they’re not going anywhere in 2016 either. This was my third time compiling the best of the bookish best of lists. And each year I’ve done this, I’ve loudly commented to my coworker that there are too many lists this year, and I’m never going to be able to choose between them all. But the reality is, most of you reading this site, you’re book people, and you already know what a lot of the picks will be for this year’s best books are. So here’s a list of some of the year’s bests that hopefully include some new-to-you titles  along with some things that you just knew would be on that list.
