Book 1: The Second World War, by Antony Beevor

Because I clearly haven't learnt my lesson from last year, this one was one gigantic big tome that took me almost six weeks to read. How am I ever going to approach Shem's book-numbers? Other than that, it was frightfully interesting and I learnt tons.

Book 2: The Martian, by Andy Weir

I'm normally not at all into sci-fi, but Marie gave it such an interesting review that I wanted to try it. I did really really like it! Objectively, there were a few rough edges to the writing and with all the sci stuff, I have no clue if it would actually have worked or was bullshit especially that spaceship that couldn't just return to Mars? But obviously it made sense within the story. And subjectively the book was a total page-turner!

Book 3: The Ghost, by Robert Harris

That was an intriguing political thriller with a twisted ending! Also, Blair. That guy basically is Blair by any other name. Just saying.



As for 2016 book goals, I seem to be in the mood for a lot of non-fiction right now. I don't feel any urge towards anything supernatural right now, or anything romance-like. All I have on my reading pile right now is either gritty suspense thriller or gritty non-fiction. My goal is to expand the horizon a little :)

Once you're back in fiction mood, esp. fantasy ... well, keep Patrick Rothfuss "The Name of the Wind" in mind.

Just saying.
