Best book of 2015?

Posted 16 Dec 2015 by Clancy Mason

2015 has seen an exciting year in publishing. As the year comes to an end, what do we think have been some of the best new books so far?

One of TTR's favourite books has been The Secret to Not Drowning by North West author Colette Snowden who was Arts Council England's Fiction Group Book of the Month for November and was also long-listed for The Guardians First Book Award. 

We also enjoyed Andrew Micheal Hurley's The Loney, a chilling debut novel set on the North West coast. The Loney was shortlisted for the 2015 Costa First Novel Award.

Other notable books of 2015 which have made various Best Of 2015 lists in the press can be found here: The Guardian, The Telegraph andGoodReads.

Do let us know if you have a favourite book of 2015?
