A Year In Books: 2015
First of all, thank you everyone for your kind words in my last post. It’s amazing how looking at the bright side of life can change a somewhat dark time. 2015 wasn’t so bad after all. Thank you guys for making me see this.
But now, it’s time for that yearly book post!! 😀 Am such a bookworm xD
2014 was the year I had an abysmal reading record. I couldn’t even finish 15 I think but 2015 is the year I started another reading challenge. Sure I couldn’t do 50 anymore because of work but since I have now more control of my time, maybe I can do it again in 2016. This year I was able to finish 20 and that’s a huge leap from 2014 so I’m grateful for a little progress. I am delving more into non-fiction and inspirational/business books and hope to continue this in 2016. There is so much to learn from both imaginary worlds and the real world so I can’t wait to explore more incredible people’s minds.
TO A MORE BOOK-FILLED 2016!
Check out my Year In Books c/o Goodreads here.
Best Book of 2015
Tie! A Jesuit Guide to Everything by James Martin and God Is Always Hiring by Regina Brett
Worst Book of 2015
Well it’s not really the “worst” but my least rated is American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin
Most Disappointing Book of 2015
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It only disappointed me because I was expecting 5 stars but it wasn’t something I’d read thrice.
Most Surprising (in a good way) Book of 2015
One Plus One by Jojo Moyes. People kept on recommending Me Before You but I liked the plot of One Plus One better because of its Little Miss Sunshine premise and boy I was blown away. Insanely loved this book!
Book You Recommended to People Most in 2015
Definitely for millenials – God Is Always Hiring and Rework. Or yes ARCHIE#1 reboot and start Saga please!
