30, I mean 60, new books in 2015.


Remember this.

Well, I've upped the game.

I'm reading 60 New Books in 2015. 


I've read 42 New Books so far this year. Only 18 to finish. I've got a stack of library books and books I've already purchased, and another very long list of books I want to read. 

Commitment. Discipline. Reading. I can do this.

These are my latest reads. By far An Officer and a Spy was my favorite!

An Officer and a Spy by Robert Harris. Historical fiction and amazing! Both in the same sentence and both, so true, regarding An Officer and a Spy. Based intimately on Frances' infamous Dreyfus Affair of the early 1900's, I was captivated in the first chapter, the first pages no less and every page thereafter. While I don't have a stack of historical fiction to bank my review I would definitely put this novel in the stack with which to say, "this is historical fiction at its best!"

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. This book was good. It was guirky and fun! I believe there is a sequel but I won't be reading it. I appreciate the ending to this book and wouldn't care to tackle Don and Rosie's 'married life' and there was enough within the Rosie Project that ircked I wouldn't deliberately pick up another book of the same.

Glory Days by Max Lucado. Uniquely Max Lucado. Pure goodness. I enjoyed plowing through the book of Joshua, solid scripture-based reading, as Max measured our Christian life journey against the Israelite's own to the Promised Land. Max writes to uplift, teach, and empower us to live the life God wants us to live.

All Necessary Force by Brad Taylor. This is the second in the Pike Logan character series. I read the first and didn't like the character Pike Logan or the special operations community Taylor tried to build surrounding Logan. Not impressed with the first book and gave this second book a chance to see if it improved, and disliked it even more. Pike Logan doesn't seem to have any redeeming qualities for me to grip on to (unlike Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series which is totally worth my time, holds my attention, with gripping story lines).
