Worst of 2015

[This is the BookLikes version of what I posted on my blog. All images and book, short work, and audiobook links go to BookLikes pages. Everything else links to my Blogger blog.]

 

As far as the stuff I read goes, my "worst" lists include things I gave 1 and 1.5 stars to, although I'll include a few higher starred honorable mentions.

As far as the stuff I watched goes, my "worst" lists will be based on gut feeling. Like I said in my "2015 in numbers" post, I barely kept any stats. I hope to change that in 2016.

Worst Books:

 

Aerisia: Land Beyond the Sunset - Sarah Ashwood  Shadow of the Knife - Jane Fletcher  Her Christmas Eve Diamond - Scarlet Wilson  

 

 

Worst Shorter Works (Novellas and Short Stories):

 

Burning Up - Z.A. Maxfield  Rats! (a short story) - Brett James  Catati Test - Misty White  

 

 

Worst Graphic Novels (Manga, etc.):

A series is listed if one or more volumes got 1 or 1.5 stars. This may not mean that I think the whole series is that bad (although in this case, it probably does), but I'm listing them by series anyway, because I am lazy.

 

 

Honorable Mentions:

 

 

Worst Audiobooks:

 

Like Clockwork - Helen Stern,Bonnie Dee  The Android's Dream - Wil Wheaton,John Scalzi  

 

 

Worst Movies:

 

 

Honorable Mentions:

 

 

Worst TV Series:
