Spend your vacation days reading the best books that came out in 2015


As part of our massive Year in Review issue, we published a ranked list of the top 10 books published in 2015 … but that's just one man's opinion. (Burrow Press publisher Ryan Rivas, in fact.) Here A+C editor Jessica Bryce Young adds her own list of 11 don't-miss-'em books (not ranked, because what kind of monster can actually rank books?? Oh, sorry, Ryan) and we jumble them up into alphabetical order.

Happy reading, happy shopping, happy holidays; please buy local.
