These are the best books for 2015, selected by Los Angeles Public Library, Librarians and other staff members. The lists do not reflect best-seller or award lists, but are the books selected by those who volunteered to participate and share their thoughts about the best books published this year. The 2015 lists have more books and greater variety than ever before. In addition to being interesting, these book lists might be helpful for gift-giving during the holiday season. We invite everyone to check for the weekly book reviews and book lists featured on LAPL Reads. Los Angeles Public Library has over six million books, and we are always adding to the collection. We hope there is at least one book, or more, that will make you want to read on and on.
