best books read in 2015

In keeping with tradition, I’ll post my best

books read in the year. This year was my Born

Again Author year, :) with heavy travels the

majority of the year, as well as managing the

day to day aspects and challenges of taking care

of a family. I haven’t done a tally, but I think

I’ve read less than previous years. but I still

did read! And some fantastic novels too.


Listed in the order I read them…

“expect nothing, be pleasantly surprised.”
cindy pon

“A plate of roast duck, steamed dumplings, spicy noodles with beef gravy, pickled cucumbers, stewed tongue and eggs if you have them, cold please, and sticky rice pearls, too,' Ai Ling said, before the server girl could open her mouth. "I don't know what he wants." Ai Ling nodded toward Chen Yong.

'I'm not sure I have enough coins to order anything more,' he said, laughing.”
Cindy Pon, Silver Phoenix

“The punishment of vertical rending was given to those who had destroyed marriages to satisfy their own lust.”
Cindy Pon, Fury of the Phoenix
