What did you read in 2015?
In 2015, I didn’t write much, but apparently I read a whole lot.
I finished 70 books—some paper, some e and some audio. (There were 5 more I started but didn’t finish.)
The way they break down is interesting:
1 ghost story romance
2 literary novels
3 middle grades
8 urban fantasies
And 37 Young Adult novels
But Gina, that’s only 69.
Yes, 1 read only 1 non-fiction book this year.
And of that 70 books, 4 were re-reads.
Each year I vote for BOOK OF THE YEAR.
Of the 37 YAs I read in 2015, I’d say my fave was ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL by Jesse Andrews, although DUMPLIN‘ by Julie Murphy ran a close second. And if you liked DUMPLIN’, read THE JOCK AND THE FAT CHICK by Nicole Winters.
Of all the others… The two Cormoran Strike mysteries, CU
CKOO’S CALLING and THE SILK WORM by JK Rowling w/a Robert Galbraith. Interesting to contrast Striker with Reacher, having just mainlined 32 of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher books before reading the two Galbraiths. And there’s a third Cormoran Strike book out now. I’ve put a hold on the various versions at the library. Whichever one comes first: audio, e or print, I’ll grab that and cancel the others.
So that’s what I read in 2015. How ’bout you?
