2015 Book Recap

2015 has been a fantastic reading year for me. In many ways. I started off the year with a Goodreads goal of 80 books, which is A LOT for me. I usually don't read that many books per year. I met that goal before the year was even half over. So I raised my goal to 110 books. I surpassed that with a whopping 177 books read this year. WOW! Here is my Goodreads 2015 year in books.

In 2016 I won't be focusing again on how many books I read. Instead I will be doing my Insane Genre Challenge, info can be found here Insane Genre Challenge, and soon I will be making a Goodreads group for the challenge for anyone who wants to join in! 

Here are some books of note for me that I read in 2015:

The Locke & Key series got me started on graphic novels! I read the first one in the series mid 2014, but I didn't pick up the second one until the beginning of this year. 

The Black Butler series got me started on mangas!! I found out I like some anime this year and Black Butler was so good that I had to give the mangas a shot. 

I found CoHo!! Her writing is so addicting and I hope I get to read more by her in 2016. 

I read all of the books in The Selection Series, The Lunar Chronicles Series, The Madman's Daughter Series, and The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Series.

I finished The Mortal Instruments Series and The Infernal Devices Series. 

I read the first one in the Lux Series and I can't wait to finish that series! 

I started The Fever Series and I'm reading on them now. 

Of course there were a few books that I didn't like. Some of those were: The Passenger, Sugar Skulls, Paper Dolls, Bliss, and A Thousand Nights. 

I didn't have ONE favorite book that I read in 2015. I had many and here are a few of those: Darkfever, Obsidian, Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Clockwork Angel, Everything, Everything, ACOTAR, Uprooted, Slammed, Remember Mia, A Man Called Ove, Ugly Love, Cinder, Eleanor & Park, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath, The Troop, and Wuthering Heights. Any series on here I am including all of the ones I have read in that series. 

Overall I think I had a pretty fabulous year of reading. I found so many new books (and types of books!) to enjoy and love. I started blogging and made a bunch of new friends. It's been pretty amazing book-wise and I can't wait to see what books I discover in 2016.
