The Best and Worst of 2015

Cinder - Marissa Meyer Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian (Audio) - Bob Saget Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1 - Zack Whedon, Georges Jeanty, Karl Story, Laura Martin, Michael Heisler The Witches of Eastwick - John Updike Pulled - A.L. Jackson, Amy Lichtenhan Marrying the Master - Chloe Cox

I know I'm a little behind in this, but here is my short list of the best and worst things I read in 2015.

 

The Best

 

Cinder: Wow, why did I wait to read this?! It was a great read, well written and so creative. I really appreciate that Cinder wasn't a damsel in distress either. She is a strong leading female.

 

Dirty Daddy: Finding a great non-fiction read is hard, but this book knocked it out of the park. Bob Saget is great, vulgar and blunt. He knows himself and is not afraid to tell you his worst memories. I think I love real Bob a million times better than Danny Tanner. 

 

Serenity: Leaves on the Wind: As any red-blooded American nerd, I adore Firefly. And silly me didn't realize there were graphic novels until this past spring. Where the heck was my head? This volume got me bad, since it takes place after the movie and we lost Wash. I cried. 

 

The Worst

 

The Witches of Eastwick: Why was this book so popular? The women are horrible with no moral compass. And everyone uses the term "faggot" way too often.

 

Pulled: I cannot stand a man that calls someone he is clearly willing to bone a bitch. This guy slept with a woman, got her pregnant and then kept referring to her as a bitch. I just cannot tolerate it. 

 

Marrying the Master: This book was outside my comfort zone. I don't tend to read erotica or anything BDSM. And this book reinforced that. The main guy is a controlling asshole that pushes everyone around to get his way. He even humiliates his "wife" in a Japanese restaurant, making her strip down naked in their tatami room. All the while he eats and talls but she has to just sit there naked and starving. Nope. That is not okay.

 

I read a ton of great books last year and I hope this year holds more of the same. Now if you will excuse me, I need to take more cough medicine before my lungs become exterior organs.
