Favorite Reads of 2015

My annual list of books I enjoyed reading over the previous year; not a “best of” list at all, just works that stuck with me. As always, I present these in alphabetical order by author. They are a mix of genres and a mish-mash of books recently published and books I either finally got around to reading or have discovered years after they’ve been published:
