My reading in 2015

Some book bloggers such as the magnificent Sarah Chorn, read in excess of 200 books a year. She's on 192 so far this year and this has been a year in which she gave birth to a second daughter and coped with major health problems.

Author Courtney Schafer is able to read a fat book in about 2 hours...

Me ... I'm sloooooooow. Part of it's being busy, part is mild dyslexia, part being easily distracted.

Since my post this time last year I've managed to read 12 books (I'm on my 13th), 2 graphic novels, and 1 novella.

I also read out loud 16 children's books to my daughter, Celyn (at the bottom of the list).

As is my wont I have reviewed all of these books on Goodreads and you can reach those reviews by clicking on the covers. Listed in chronological order of reading.

Of all of these I have to say The Wise Man's Fear was best read. Alan Garner's Red Shift the most literary (despite allegedly being a children's book!). In Midnight's Silence was also excellent - I could learn to love novellas!


My first self-published read, a SPFBO finalist.
