My Reading List for 2015

I’ve never actually tracked the books I read in a year – because that simply sounds like a little too much organization for me. But considering I read very few dead-tree editions, it’s pretty simple now: just look at my kobo list, my kindle list, and try to remember the physical books (I tend to give away physical books, except for signed copies). I

There is no order to this list:

  • Star Wars – The Force Awakens by Alan Dean Foster
  • Sons of the Black Sword  by Larry Correia
  • Abaddon’s Gate by James S.A.Corey
  • Caliban’s War by James S.A.Corey
  • Fear the Sky by Stephen Moss
  • Much Ado about MacBeth by Randy McCharles
  • Spellbound: Book 2 of the Grimnoir Chronicles by Larry Correia
  • Spell Blind, The Case Files of Justis Fearsson Book 1 by David B. Coe
  • The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R.Carey
  • The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healey and Todd Harris
  • What it’s Like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes
  • Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia
  • Confessions of a D-List Supervillain by Jim Bernheimer
  • Broken Angels by Richard K. Morgan
  • Willful Child by Steven Erikson
  • Terms of Enlistment by Marko Kloos
  • The Deep by Nick Cutter
  • 14 by Peter Clines
  • The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
  • Hard Magic: Book 1 of the Grimnoir Chronicles by Larry Correia
  • The Martian by Andy Weir
  • The Name of the Wind: Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 1 by Patrick Rothfuss
  • Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
  • Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi
  • Nigh by Marie Bilodeau
  • The Undead Situation by Eloise J. Knapp

  • Aftermath: Journey to the Force Awakens by Chuck Wendig
  • Dance of Dragons by George R.R. Martin
  • Half a War by Joe Abercrombie
  • The Border by Robert R. McCammon
  • Expendables by James Alan Gardner

Sure seems that I read a lot of Science Fiction (considering I’m generally a dark fantasy writer, I found this interesting). Plus, no hard Sci Fi other than the Martian. Other than that, it’s all about laser beams, rockets, and aliens. Total read: 32 books. Some of them were absolute bricks (I’m looking at you Dance of Dragons and The Name of the Wind).

If I had to pick favourites, I’d tend to Hard Magic by Larry Correia, Wilful Child by Steven Erickson, and the Expanse Series by S.A.Corey (think Game of Thrones in outer space).
