I want to take a minute to talk about 2015's reading. I set a random goal: 60 books, that equals 5 per month. I made it by the skin of my teeth! I finished my 61st book right before the end of the year. According to Goodreads, I read 20,631 pages. I like this fun infographic Goodreads made for me!
By the numbers:
Adult Fiction (not historical and including science fiction) 12
Historical Fiction 8
Young Adult 24
So, I will admit here that I am a very picky reader. I only rated FOUR books with 5 stars in 2015. My top choices were:
Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell - a delightful classic about a small English town full of women
The Martian by Andy Weir - science fiction novel about a man who gets left behind on Mars and has to survive on his own (warning, lots of swears)
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - historical fiction set during World War 2, about a German boy and a blind French girl and the way their lives intertwine
Rook by Sharon Cameron - young adult speculative fiction super loosely based on the Scarlett Pimpernell
Hopefully I'll find a few more this year that amaze be, but either way, I know I'll learn some stuff and certainly be entertained. My goal this year is 62 - just so I'm moving forward :) Here's to my favorite hobby!!
