Aaaannnddd… now I have Tina Turner stuck in my head. Sometimes posts have a funny way of making their way “onto the page” – and this one, apparently, is to be accompanied by this old tune.
I know everyone has already made their top ten lists for this year (those of debut authors, new authors, old authors, and so on) and I’m a little late to the party, but I want to share this with you because I like looking back at the end of the year, remembering the great stories (and the not-so-great ones, too). Goodreads says I read 125 books this year, which is pretty damn nice, I think. My average rating was 3.6, which seems quite low, but I had a lot of 5- and 4-star books, so I feel like this reading year was good.
I am fully convinced I wouldn’t have found half of these books if I never started this blog, if you lovely readers never recommend great books, if I never read other book blogs. So thank you all for being the absolute best audience I could ever wish for. *hugs for everyone*
These are some of the best books I read (and mostly even reviewed) in 2015 – in no particular order:
Stardust – Carry On – Attachments – Heir of Fire – Fangirl – All I Want – Half the World – The Handmaid’s Tale – Scarlet – A Darker Shade of Magic – Uprooted – Every Breath – The Accident Season – The Kiss of Deception – The Mad Ship – To Kill a Mockingbird – Daughter of the Forest – Nice Dragons Finish Last – Nimona – Saga – Looking for Alaska
And here are the posts that either got the most comments or ones that I enjoyed writing:
The one that got the most comments was my review of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Ha.
My Fictional Bucket List – Second Chances – Comfort Reads – In Defence of Good Guys – A Castle and a Park – Fan Fic (+ A Ramble on Harry Potter and Sex) – Reading Fantasy in a Tiny Country – How Do You Like Your Romance?
