A Baker's Dozen of Favorite Books of 2015

Yeah, yeah, I shouldn't even be posting this since I didn't finish my November reviews until after Christmas. I thought I'd do that in the past two weeks! But here it is anyway. If you're looking for the December books, they're all reviewed in Holiday Harbour.

book icon  How to Be a Victorian, Ruth Goodman (Barnes & Noble purchase)

book icon  If Walls Could Talk, Lucy Worsley (Barnes & Noble purchase)

book icon  Pioneer Girl: the Annotated Autobiography, Laura Ingalls Wilder, edited by Pamela Smith Hill (Books-a-Million purchase, since everyone else was out)

book icon  Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein (Amazon purchase)

book icon  A Brief Guide to The Sound of Music, Paul Simpson (Books-a-Million purchase)

book icon  Bluegrass Champion (Harlequin Hullabaloo), Dorothy Lyons (library booksale)

book icon  The Best of Connie Willis, Connie Willis (Amazon purchase)

book icon  The Penderwicks in Spring, Jeanne Birdsall (Amazon purchase)

book icon  The Great Detective, Zach Dundas (Barnes & Noble purchase)

book icon  Eighty Odd Years in Hollywood, John Meredyth Lucas (Amazon Marketplace purchase)

book icon Doctor Who's Greatest Hits, R. Alan Siler (directly from Alan, at Dragoncon!)

book icon  One Man's Meat, E.B. White (Amazon Marketplace purchase)

plus an honorable mention to Winter at Death's Hotel by Kenneth Cameron, but it was so creepy and violent I doubt if I'll ever read it again, and the short story collection A Stone Mountain Christmas.

Looks like you have lots of good NF reads! I want to read that annotated Pioneer Girl. My library has it and it was such a hard book to get when it first came out. I think they must not have realized how popular it was going to be! Now that I have finished the books I want to get it as well for my own library! :) Code Name Verity is also on my reading pile--must get to it soon.... And the Worsely looks interesting, so now to check it out!

Dani, if you haven't read any of E.B. White's essays, I would certainly try some!
