2015 Top 10 Books

2015 is nearing its end, which obviously means it time for Best Of lists to start making their merry rounds.

Here's my 10 favorite reads for this year - note that at least one was not published in 2015, but since I read it in 2015 and since this is my list, I'm deciding it is perfectly OK to include it.

Note, too, that some are audiobooks. There's a bit of a debate, apparently, over whether or not audiobooks count as "read" material. I began listening to audiobooks for the first time this year, and two of my favorites were discovered on that format. Again, the whole "it's my list and I'll do what I want" rule applies.

I'm offering this list without commentary or justification. These are the book that I enjoyed the most; your mileage may vary. I've linked to the reviews I've posted for these titles, either here or at Amazon, so feel to give them a read for my thoughts.

All right - on with the list!

  1. Locke & Key by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez (Audiobook)
  2. A Song of Shadows (Charlie Parker #13) by John Connolly
  3. Flex (Mancer #1) by Ferret Steinmetz
  4. First Light (The Red #1) by Linda Nagata
  5. Snowblind by Michael McBride [published in 2012, but I didn't read it until this year.]
  6. The Z Chronicles (anthology)
  7. Atlanta Burns by Chuck Wendig
  8. Gemini Cell by Myke Cole
  9. Within by Keith Deininger
  10. Masters of Blood and Bone by Craig Saunders
