A Review of 2015

2015 is in the books (ha!) and here's a summary of how the year of reading went for me, starting with my top ten list (in the order they were read):

  1. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
  2. The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence
  3. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  4. Under the Harrow by Mark Dunn
  5. The Border by Robert McCammon
  6. The Happiest People in the World by Brock Clarke
  7. Finders Keepers by Stephen King
  8. The Mirror World of Melody Black by Gavin Extence
  9. Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman
  10. The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
The worst book I read all year was The Lost Island by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, which was very disappointing, since I'm such a big fan of theirs. 

Number of books read during the year--61.

Signings attended during the year: Brandon Sanderson--Firefight, Peter Orrulian--Trial of Intentions, Dan Wells--The Devil's Only Friend, Brian Selznick--The Marvels, Craig Johnson--Dry Bones.

Books I'm looking forward to that will be published in 2016:
