Faye’s Best of ’15

My 2015 was a little crazy. Unfortunately, a lot of it wasn’t spent reading, and I was unable to really connect with a lot of the books I did read. So, here’s my list of what I did really enjoy this year.

1. Jackdaw by KJ Charlesjackdaw

This book was excellent. I can’t overstate its excellence. Read it. I don’t care if you don’t like paranormal or historical. It’s just really good.

 

2. The Grand Ballast by JA Rock

This was a Reading Experience. It wasn’t always a fun experience. Bodie is difficult to read. The whole book is difficult to read and it can stay with you in ways that are… unpleasant. I was riveted.

3.  Milk Bar Life: Recipes & Stories by Christina Tosi

This book was fun. It was approachable in terms of both the recipes and the ingredients needed. And really, mac and cheese pancakes!

4. Rise & Fall by Charlie Cochet

You know how when you’re reading a series and you get a HUGE cliffhanger and when you finally get the resolution it can feel like a bit of a let down? This book did not let me down at all! I’d have to say this is possibly the best cliffhanger resolution I’ve ever read.

 

 

5. Heat Trap (The Plumber’s Mate #3) by JL Merrow

I love this series. I love Tom. And Phil. And their lewd dwarf friend. It’s like a gay, cozy mystery with a British accent. Not only are these like literary comfort food for me, but they’re very well written and fun to read.

6. Charmed and Dangerous: Ten Tales of Gay Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy

This is a powerhouse anthology. I even bought a paperback of it and plan to get signatures of all 10 authors. This is a book I won’t let other people touch. Except those authors who will be signing it.

Wildcard: Mason-Dixon Knitting: The Curious Knitter’s Guide: Stories, Patterns, Advice, Opinions, Questions, Answers, Jokes, and Pictures by Kay Gardiner and Anne Shayne (2010)

I drunk purchased this book one knight because I was really 35705interested in log cabin knitting. Don’t fake like you haven’t done something like that! This book has actually tempted me to make lace. I don’t want to make lace, but it’s a really cool curtain that looks like champagne bubbles. I’m also going to make the little baby kimono. It’s beyond adorable. In addition to good information and patterns the writing is funny.
