Books to Read in 2015

Since graduating J-School, I haven’t had a structured reading environment. I’ll go weeks without reading and some days I’ll read two books in one sitting. I’m not faithful to one genre (despite this blog’s title). As long as there’s a story, I’m in. So, not in any particular order, here is my 2015 reading list… at this current moment in time.
