H Is for HawkHere are the Top 10 Best Books of 2015 so far:

H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald: Enthralling from the first page, Macdonald’s gorgeously wrought prose describes a journey from crippling grief to something resembling grace on the wings of another deadly bird of prey—the notoriously prickly, and murderous, goshawk.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir: Tahir’s debut is rich fantasy coupled with echoes of historical saga, all vividly rendered on the page. Potent action and liquid language whisk the chapters along all too quickly; there can only be great things in store for the author and her readers.

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of Lusitania by Erik Larson: Larson once again illustrates his gift for seducing us with history and giving it a human face, putting readers right aboard the famous Cunard liner and keeps them turning the pages until the book’s final, breathless encounter.

Ghettoside: A True Story of Murder in America by Jill Leovy: Los Angeles Times writer Leovy masterfully explores the culture of violence in South Central L.A., producing a transcendent, dismaying, and tragic portrait of neglect and injustice.
