Lilia: Us by David Nicholls (ebook). I’m challenging myself this year by reading at least one title from the 2014 Favorite Reads of my colleagues.  Just for fun… 🙂

Nicki: Josephine by Kate Williams (ebook).

Martijn: City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett (ebook).

Ester: Spackled and Spooked by Jennie Bentley.  Why does this question always pop up when I’m reading a guilty pleasure? 😉

Steven: A Geek in Japan: Discovering the Land of Manga, Anime, Zen, and the Tea Ceremony by Hector Garcia.  This follows Tokyo on Foot: Travels in the City’s Most Colorful Neighborhoods by Florent Chavouet (they work great as a set).

PeterL: Just finished Rubbernecker by Belinda Bauer (ebook).  About an autistic young man who solves a crime.  Fun book, makes clear what autism encompasses.  And also what a coma is all about, too.  Now I’m reading Alphabet House by Jussi Adler-Olsen (ebook).  Not sure if I’ll finish it.

Jouke: Daemon by Daniel Suarez (ebook).  Techno-thriller.  On page 160/632, so far = awesome!

Daria: Us by David Nicholls (ebook) and The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo and Cathy Hirano.

Pleun: It by the King (ebook).

Jitse: My Friend Dahmer by Derf Backderf, The Organized Mind by Daniel Levitin (ebook), and Flashpoints: The Emerging Crisis in Europe by George Friedman.

Rick: I am re-viewing episodes of The Walking Dead which I love and also watching for the 20th time the war film “Where Eagles Dare“.

Maarten: Lazarillo van Tormes: Een schelmenroman by Guus Kuijer and Severed: A History of Heads Lost and Heads Found by Frances Larson (ebook).

Sophie: Just finished the excellent Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie (ebook) and now reading Loud in the House of Myself by Stacy Pershall. My reading challenge this year is to fill this entire Reading Bingo chart (the top one, not the YA one).  I have 4 squares filled so far (“A book with more than 500 pages“, “A book that became a movie“, “A book with a mystery” and “A book with non-human characters“.  Pershall’s book will be filling the “A book with a blue cover” square. :-)).
