My 2015 Book List

Well, I just blogged about goals; which is where I tell you that my single goal from last year was to read 30 books. And now you know just how much more I’ve committed to taking on for 2016!

Here’s my reading list from this last year, listed in order of date completed. There are a couple big gaps in my reading–partly because I was reading some tough books, partly because I went through a period of feeling burnt out on reading. Remember how I enjoy variety? Well, its prevalent again this year. I also included my Goodreads rating (you can read more about my love for Goodreads here), my list of started but not finished books and the two books that are currently in progress that I started before the new year but have yet to finish.
