Bests of 2015!

Yes, i'm a bit late.

 Overall, just going for a ballpark figure, I think I read somewhere between 45-55 books last year.  This includes a LOT of comics.  I read some Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye, Saga, and Hellblazer, the one about John Constantine.  I also tore through a good number of mysteries by Dorothy Sayers, and some modern mysteries like The Girl on the Train and Career of Evil.  And I did a bunch of rereading of Jane Austen, the Brontes, Agatha Christie, Tolkien...a lot of rereading. 

So what were the best things?

Books:
  • All the Dorothy Sayers I read was amazing
  • The Girl on the Train
  • Love and Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere by Poe Ballantine
  • I read the first 6 volumes of Hellblazer, the John Constantine Comic
  • The Three Body Problem by Liu Cixin
  • Armada by Ernest Cline
Movies and TV:
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • Mad Max: Fury Road
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens (what's with the subtitle thing I've got going here?)
  • The Martian
  • Game of Thrones Season 6 
  • Jessica Jones 
  • I watched all of the Hannibal show

Life:
  •  I had an amazing daughter who I have the privilege to watch grow and learn
  •  Going on this journey with my awesome husband
  •  Seeing so many of our relatives meet little Eleanor

I really want to get back into blogging but am trying to find the time.  It's just so hard!  Maybe doing some challenges will help?
