2015 A Year of Reading in Review

This year I set out to read 50 books. I managed to read 56 books. Next year I'm going to shoot for 60. What were the best books I read this year? I started off by reading the first Harry Potter book in January and then read all 7 of them all the way through in a row for the first time. Every one of those books was amazing. I loved each and every one. I was very impressed with J.K. Rowling's storytelling abilities and of course absolutely loved the characters in her books. Plus they were very fun. Brilliant books. Other great books were The Martian by Andy Weir, The Giver, Storm Front by Jim Butcher (1st Dresden Files Book) and a creepy Supernatural Thriller/Crime Novel called Nocturnal by Scott Sigler. Oh also Looking for Alaska by John Green - literary fiction. Ooh and Jurassic Park. My first time reading that one. Lastly I just finished Lost Stars, the YA STAR WARS book yesterday and it was amazing! I loved it. 

So, scroll down from here and check out the covers for the books I read in 2015. It was quite a ride. This is the most books I've ever read in a year. Last year I set out to read 35 and read 42 books. You can read the blog post for those books and see their covers in the post called My Year in Reading. Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the scroll down. A big thanks to Goodreads.com for generating these great images and for creating the Reading Challenge. I would not have read this many books had it not been for the reading challenge. I love seeing if I'm ahead or behind and seeing my meter fill up! Now to catch up on some podcasts while I wait for 2016 to start reading more books!

That's it! Hopefully there will be even more next year! Thanks for stopping by! Have a happy New Year and Happy Reading!
