The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson - actually quite deep for a teen novel...
Pier 21: The Gateway that Changed Canada by J.P. Leblanc
The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss - not what I was expecting but I had been warned about that. One character, no dialogue, and no real plot. Actually surprisingly sweet and affecting.
The Quick by Lauren Owen - I feel a little cheated, since no one told me this was going to be a vampire novel. The point of view shifts were a little jarring, the narrative disjointed, but not a bad read.
Blankets by Craig Thompson - I recently saw a "Top However-many graphic novels" list that featured several of my favorites, so I took notes on the ones that I hadn't read. This definitely deserved its spot on the list: it was beautifully drawn, the story was deeply moving, and I can't recommend it enough.
Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath - surprisingly good, actually; maybe because I was in quite a similar mood.
The Nao of Brown by Glyn Dillon - another one of those Top graphic novels. This one was a little harder to wrap my head around, though the watercolour illustrations were gorgeous.
Flappers: Six Women of a Dangerous Generation by Judith Mackrell - biographies of 6 of the most outrageous, well-known figures of the 20s.
Lament by Maggie Stiefvater - picked up on a whim, because I love the author. Sadly not her best work, though it was still interesting enough for me to get the second volume...
Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater
Night Broken by Patricia Briggs (reread)
Kare Kano by Masami Tsuda, vols. 1-2 - because what's the point of a library carrying manga if I can't give things a try?

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015) - oh, Guy Ritchie, you always make me smile
Straight Outta Compton (2015)
Ricki and the Flash (2015) - so disappointing
Mr. Holmes (2015)
Paper Towns (2015)
