The books I read in 2015

February 10, 2016

Ok, so normally I would have posted this already but 2016 has had a busy start so only just getting round to it now. In fact 2015 was a busy year all up and i can tell that by the number of books I read, just a paltry 27. My biggest disappointing of the year was Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee, but then To Kill A Mocking Bird is one of my all time favourate books so i had very high expectations.

There are lots of 4’s but interestingly not one of them got a full 5 out of 5, but one did come close…

  1. Faggots by Larry Kramer = 2.5
  2. The final confession of Mabel Stark by Robert Hough = 3.5
  3. Small crimes in an age of abundance by Matthew Kneale = 3.5
