2015: The 4 Books I Read
Every year, NeoGAF has a 50 books and 50 movies challenge, in which you have to read 50 new books and watch 50 new movies before the start of the next year. There is also a game equivalent, in which you have to beat 52 new video games. These challenges provide that extra motivation to do/finish the things you already wanted to anyway and can lead you to checking out stuff you otherwise may not have (this is especially true with books).
As you can tell by the title of this post, I failed the book challenge by a large margin, but I still wanted to share my list.
My ratings are done on a 5-star scale (no halfsies).
★ - Hated it
★★ - Disliked it
★★★ - Liked/enjoyed/didn't actively dislike it
★★★★ - Really liked it
★★★★★ - Loved it
I'm not very critical of most of the media I consume, so it's not often I give something less than three stars.
Sphere by Michael Crichton - ★★★★
Former Baseball Player Sucks At Crowdfunding: A Time Travel Adventure by Dan Ryckert - ★★★★
Anxiety as an Ally: How I Turned a Worried Mind into My Best Friend by Dan Ryckert - ★★★★★
Curtain Call: How An Unscripted Goodbye Changed The Course Of Pro Wrestling by Dan Ryckert - ★★★★
That's right. 3 out of 4 books I read last year were by Dan Ryckert. We'll see if I complete the challenge this year (doubtful).
