Books Read in 2015

January
05 Touch of Power (Healer #1) by Maria V. Snyder*
10 How to Become a Straight-A Student: The Unconventional Strategies Real College Students Use to Score High While Studying Less by Cal Newport (recommended to every college student, especially those in American colleges because they are the primarily addressed, but also to the students from other countries with different systems)
13 Scent of Magic (Healer #2) by Maria V. Snyder*
22 Sweet Revenge by Nora Roberts (I am getting tired of the simple division of black-and-white, villains-vs-heroes reality Nora Roberts produces, esp. when there is a need for the “bad guys”.)
23 Interlude in Death (In Death #12.5) by J. D. Robb (This one was okay. Since it’s a novella, you can pass it up without missing any vital plot.)
26 Taste of Darkness (Healer #3) by Maria V. Snyder*

*If you loved Poison Study but thought the trilogy went a bit downhill from there, if you were hit by the mediocrity of the Glass trilogy, do yourself a favor and don’t read these.
