2014 Book List

Books I have read this year, with reviews as the spirit moves me.

62.  Buried in a Bog by Sheila Connelly-  a lot more book than there was story, and it wasn't a long book.  The Irish setting was pleasant however.

61.  Stuff Matters by Mark Miodownik- a fascinating exploration of materials, and their role in our lives.  Recommended.

60.  Skin Game by Jim Butcher

59.  Vicky Peterwald: Target by Mike Shepherd

58.  The Rhesus Chart by Charles Stross

57.  The Forever Watch by David Ramirez

56.  Resurrection Men by Ian Rankin

55.  Duck the Halls by Donna Andrews

54.  The Longest Cave by Roger W. Brucker and Richard A. Watson
53.  Zero-Degree Murder by M.L.Rowland
52.  Concealed in Death by J.D. Robb

51.  Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews

50.  The Man He Became: How FDR Defied Polio to Win the Presidency by James Tobin

49. Rogue by Gina Damico
This was well paced- despite not really liking the protagonist that much (and as a long-time SF/fantasy reader finding the premise unconvincing)  I was quickly sucked in.  An appropriate end to the trilogy, but I saw what the climax would be halfway through the book.

48.  Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach
A hilarious exploration of scientific research into sex. 

47. Have You Seen Her by Karen Rose
46. You Can't Hide by Karen Rose
45. Silent Scream by Karen Rose
44.  Dirty Secrets by Karen Rose
43.  Broken Silence by Karen Rose
42. You Belong to Me by Karen Rose
41.  The Dark Witch by Nora Roberts
40.  Russian Roulette by Anthony Horowitz
39. The Martian by Andy Weir
A tense, well-paced and absorbing story of survival on Mars. It reads like classic SF adventure- but without needing to hand-wave any of the science.  The hero- in addition to being inventive and determined, was very engaging.  I was rooting for him from page 1 and had a hard time putting it down.  Highly recommended.

38.  Ralestone Luck by Andre Norton (reread)
37.  Scorch by Gina Damico
36.  Croak by Gina Damico
