A Roundup of Book Roundups

A Roundup of Book Roundups

I love book recommendations. So when various friends take the time to put together lists of their favorite books in 2015, I enjoy seeing not only what they recommend, but why. So I thought I would compile a variety of book roundups that I’m aware of for this past year:

Another list that may be of interest is Englewood Review of Books’ compilation of Top 50 Books For Christian Readers to Watch for in 2015. Similar in concept is Brian Dodd’s list, The Top 15 Books Christian Leaders Should Read In 2015.

Here are some books that turned up numerous times on these various lists:

If you are looking for some mainstream lists, consider the New York TimesAmazonWashington Post, NPR, Publishers Weekly, and Barnes & Noble.

Finally, these lists can help those of you who would like book ideas for The 2016 Reading Challenge.

Happy reading!
