2015 has been a great reading year. To celebrate some of the amazing books we read, we got together and each chose books that brought something to our literary lives that touched, inspired, and entertained us. This a snapshot of our reading journey through 2015 and books that brought us joy, although it isn't limited to only 2015 titles. We're excited to champion these stories and research and hope you potentially find something here you might love, too!

I'd recommend Planetfall by Emma Newman. It's a really amazing stand alone science fiction novel, plus it contains elements that I think the reviewers here would like (the protagonist is black and bisexual and a lot of the book focuses on anxiety and mental health issues).

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
