2015 reading list

I didn't post my list of books last year and was asked about it in, oh, July or so.  Because at least ONE person had asked, I decided to list books this year.  Now, looking at the list, there's only 60 some titles on it.  Which makes me wonder if I just didn't do a good job of writing titles down!  On the other hand, this year, I had a need to re-read several series.  I re-read the entire JD Robb "In Death" series (30+ titles) as well as Anne McCaffrey's Pern books.  McCaffrey's titles are listed below, Robb's aren't.  The Only Robb titles you'll see are the new releases.  I also re-read the Outlander series and they aren't listed.

One of the nice parts of reading ebooks is I can check my reading history.  But for titles I read in print, if I didn't remember to list them, they didn't get listed.  That is what I think has happened to me here.  I'll try to do better this year!

My favorite first reads of the year?   The Red Queen it's a fantasy/young-adult title but very well done.  Favorite non-fiction reads are harder to pick.  One that has inspired me to reduce the sugar I eat (knowingly and unknowingly), A year of No Sugar.  One that was fun?  Pioneer Girl: the annotated autobiography of Laura Ingalls Wilder.   The most moving and disturbing?  Born Survivors.  

So, without further ado, here's my reading list from 2015.
