The year 2015 is coming to a close. It has been a super wild 365 days. As you know this is the year I became a mom and a stay at home one at that. It is also the year I started my blog.
I have read so much this past year! It is crazy! My grand total is 135 books!!! Can you believe it? That is an insane amount! To be fair though, a good portion of those are picture books, but picture books are still books and they count. Also, it is very rare that you get to read a picture book only once (but I did only count them towards my total 1 time!), so I figure I should count them. Even if they are excluded from the final count, a little over half of these 135 were middle grade or higher. That is still a whole heck of a lot of books!
So for fun, here are my favorites for this past year.
Young Adult Contemporary/Romance
Young Adult Fantasy/Science Fiction
Young Adult Fiction
Adult Coloring Book
It was really hard to choose which books to put into these arbitrary categories (except for biography/memoir...I only read 1 of those, but it was a good one!). I also didn't put the books that I have read already that are coming out in 2016.
2016 January Releases Not to be Missed
I have read a lot of fantastic books, I have made a lot of new book loving friends, and I can only hope for more of the same thing to happen in 2016.
My reading goals for 2016:
- 150 books (gasp!)
- Do at least 1 reread a month
- Read at least 1 indy/self published book a month
- Read one back list title a month
- Read 1 classic
- Read 1 biography/memoir
- Up my Netgalley percentage to atleast 50 (higher would be fantastic!)
- To keep up the love of reading and to share my book love with others
I WISH YOU ALL HAPPY READING IN 2016!
