It’s time for the obligatory top 15 of the year 2015. Now, as a disclaimer, not all books came out in 2015; this is just a list of my favorites that I read this year.
15. The Misadventures of Edgar & Allan Poe by Gordon McAlpine
So yes, this is a middle-reader book, but when you’re aiming to be a children’s librarian, you’re never too old to hang out in the “kids’ section.” Anyway, this is the first book in a series about these two twins, Edgar and Allan, named for their ancestor (of course), Edgar Allan Poe. These two aren’t just any ordinary twins, though. They’re so similar and so close that they can read each other’s minds and know where the other is if they’re apart (they may be closer than Fred and George Weasley… although I doubt it). This interests some scientists, who wish to experiment on the boys to see exactly how powerful their connection is.
It’s a really cute, fun, and short read, and I really enjoyed it! I wasn’t itching to read the next book, though (although I am older than the intended age, which might have something to do with that).
