December is zooming like a rocket sled toward the end of the year. So how about a few Best-Of lists?
My favorite movies of 2015:
Mad Max: Fury Road
Bridge of Spies
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
Note that I still have a few movies to see this year, including Creed and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Oh, who am I kidding? I’m going to add Star Wars to the list.
Favorite TV shows:
Better Call Saul
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
Again, I still have to catch up on Mad Men, and am just getting into some shows like Mr. Robot and The Americans.
Favorite books outside of crime/suspense/thrillers:
The Skies Belong to Us: Love and Terror in the Golden Age of Hijacking, Brendan I. Koerner
A Man Against the World: The Tragedy of Richard Nixon, Tim Weiner
Underworld, Don DeLillo
Abaddon’s Gate, James S.A. Corey
Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel
I read a wealth of amazing crime and suspense novels this year. So many, in fact, that I need to sort through them and post those later.
How about everybody else?
