2015 - Wrap up, part 2 - the rest of the books

Here is a list of the books I read or listened to in 2015 that I haven't written about already.

  • Ruby Red - the first of a series
  • The Death of Ivan Ilyich
  • The Circle - I wanted to enjoy this more than I did.
  • The Rithmatist
  • A Caribbean Mystery - Miss Marple
  • What Now? - An essay by Ann Patchett, based on a commencement address
  • The Nature Principle
  • The Story of Dr. Dolittle
  • Cinder - Cinderella story with a cyborg. How can you go wrong with that?
  • Beauty Queens
  • Vanity Fair
  • Silas Marner
  • A Fighting Chance - Written and read by Elizabeth Warren
  • Who Could That Be at This Hour?
  • How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse - listen to the audio book
  • How to Speak Dragonese - the audio book is read by David Tennant
  • Life of Pi
  • The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - I had already read this, but I'd heard the audio book was good, so I decided to listen to it.
  • The Penderwicks
  • How to Twist a dragon's Tale
  • Work Hard, Be Nice: How Two Inspired Teachers Created the Most Promising Schools in America
  • 29 Gifts
  • The Island of Dr Libris - I like books that celebrate books
  • Wild Born (Spirit Animals series)
  • The Book Thief - Amidst all the horror, this is still a life-affirming, hopeful book. This is on my list of books that everyone should read at least once.
  • Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor
  • Hunted (Spirit Animals)
  • Sapphire Blue - the second in the Ruby Red series
  • Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity
  • Form Norvelt to Nowhere
  • Emerald Green - The last in the Ruby Red series in which our heroine inherits a time-travel gene and must save the world (along with super-awesome time-traveling boyfriend Gideon) from a crazy, sadistic guy from the past. I quite enjoyed this series.
  • When Santa Fell to Earth
  • A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons
  • The Hunger Games
  • Catching Fire
Grand total for 2015: 75 + a few rereads
