It’s hard to believe that today is the last day of 2015! I feel like this year flew right by. This year was up and down for me. Sometimes I read a lot (i.e. in the summer) other times I barely read at all (September and October – I’m looking at you). I haven’t blogged a whole lot either, and while I wish I blogged more I also don’t regret not blogging. If blogging becomes a chore I will hate it, so instead I blog when I want. I’m hoping to get some mojo back for 2016.
Best of 2015
Ten books that I would consider favorites this year. I think the best of the best is Where the Stars Still Shine and Missing Dixie. So many feels!
I read 127 books this year and here is a quick overview.
I really like this new Goodreads feature so here is a snippet of my year in books. Pages are probably off though as I rarely select the audio version of the book when marking it on Goodreads.
I saw this cool graphic making feature over at Chrisbookarama and really wanted to try it.
This is the first year ever that I purchased less than 50% percent of the books I’ve read. It’s definitely because I’ve started using the library (digital only as I suck at returning books) a whole lot more than ever before.
Again, contemporary ruled my world and I don’t see that changing any time soon. I had a pretty good split between YA and Adult this year which makes me happy.
Looking Towards 2016
I’m not sure how much blogging I will do but my goal for reading is going to be the same – 125 books. I’m also on a mission to reduce my TBR – for real this time. Currently I sit at 152 books and I’d like to reduce that by 50% – either through reading them or weeding them.
I think 2016 is going to be a great year for me and can’t wait to see what it brings.
Happy New Year!
