My 2015 in books, thanks to Goodreads. I thought this was the perfect way to sum up how much and what I read in 2015. I’m proud of myself for exceeding my initial target and I’m aiming higher in 2016. This year has definitely reignited my love for reading. I forced myself to make more time for reading and I am so glad that I did. I always had my nose in a book when I was younger and I don’t intend on letting adulthood stopping me from now on, even if work does keep me super busy!
Favourite 2015 Reads.
My favourite reads were Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas, All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Each of these novels gave me something completely different to love and I am so glad that I read them this year. I also particularly enjoyed The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey and The Martian by Andy Weir.
I tried to read a mixture of books this year. Some which were new releases alongside dusting off a few books that had been sat on my shelf for way too long. Many of the books I have read have fallen under the Young Adult umbrella, a genre I find addictive. I have also tried to branch out by reading more Classics, something I intend to continue in 2016. I also enjoyed a couple of Historical Fiction novels and most of all really enjoyed a few novels within the Mystery genre.
What about 2016?
I have signed up for a few yearly challenges next year and have set myself a starting goal of 60 books, 16 books more than I read this year. I have a list of books I want to read this year to reduce my mighty old TBR, but I’ve also left lots of room for the inevitable ‘cannot resist’ novels that I’ll come across next year. More importantly, I’ll be aiming to post a review here for each book that I read.
Wishing you a very happy new year with the warmest of wishes for your 2016!
