What I Read This Year 2015 Edition

Behold, the mega list of all the books, plays, short stories and poems I read in 2015, complete with ratings. Not as long a list as last year – only 78 works on it – but not bad all the same. Same rules as always apply: re-reads do not count, all ratings are subject to change in the future.
