I READ 148 BOOKS IN 2015, AND I'M REVIEWING THEM 10 AT A TIME. PART 4/15.

  1. β€’
    Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
    I'm a HUGE Maggie fan girl, so I broke my personal "no werewolves or vampires" rule. It was good, but I haven't read the sequels yet, because: werewolves.

    πŸ…The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
    I loved this book so much. I'm an Anglophile, and I just couldn't put the silly thing down. Definitely one of the best of 2015.

    The Princess Bride by William Golding
    I've seen the movie a million times, but somehow I'd never gotten to the book. After reading Cary Elwes's AS YOU WISH last year, I finally got around to picking this up - and I was super surprised by how different it is from the movie!

    Hold on My Heart by Tracy Brogan
    Meh. Not awesome. Which was a bummer, since her Bell Harbor books were so funny.
  5. β€’
    πŸ’£ Gulp by Mary Roach
    I really liked STIFF, but I got so bored while listening to this one.
  6. β€’
    Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled by Dorothy Gilman
    I thought I might do a big Pollifax reread this year. But 2 were enough I think.
  7. β€’
    πŸ’£ The Beekeeper's Daughter by Sofia Montefiore
    Her writing was good, a bit reminiscent of Kate Morton or Lisa Jewell... But blah. The entire book was predicated on multiple infidelities, and I just don't find that romantic.

    Cousin Kate by Georgette Heyer
    My favorite author. Forever and always. This book is so very different than most of her other ones! The Gothicness is so fun.

    Red Rising by Pierce Brown
    Guys, have you read this series yet?? @mhawkeyem got me hooked on the audiobooks, and they're SO GOOD. Dying for book 3 to come out.

    Every Secret Thing by Emma Cole
    A fun thriller, mostly set in Portugal. A great, quick read.
