The Best and The Brightest Reviews on the Web
Did you mean to post this already? It shows Thurs, Dec 24 as posting date with a Dec 25 ending date....If you DID mean to post this, then I don't actually have a list of favorite books in 2015. I have read over 280 books so far this year and anticipate reading another 30+ more, so I don't dwell on the past books but instead on my future books! So many books, so little time! I WILL say, though, that I discovered eBooks (via Kindle for PCs since I don't own an eReader) and am gradually starting to enjoy them in addition to my printed "comfort" books. A book is a book!
Can't believe holiday season has already started. My favorite books of the year include Elle Kennedy's "The Deal," Lorraine Heath's "The Duke and the Lady in Red," Julianna Keyes' "Going the Distance" and Toni Anderson's "Cold Fear."
Laney, yes... I want to see if I can pin this at the top of the blog so it doesn't get buried. ~Patti~

This list comprises most, but not all, of the books I read in 2015. I rarely rate a book 5 stars. Most are 4 or below. So, to be a good book IMHO, it must come in at 3.5 or 4 stars.
