My Year in Review #1/3 | Books

Before the year ends, I’ll be briefly reviewing my wonderful, event filled 12 months here on my blog. Today looks at my (awfully disappointing) year in books.


At the beginning of the year, I set myself a goal of 50 books in the Goodreads 2015 Reading Challenge. I failed epically. I’m not one to normally make excuses but my new job was hugely time consuming in the latter half of the year – until then, I was speeding through my ever-growing “to read” list! When I got home from a tiring day at work, still unfamiliar with the ungodly working hours that adults have to go through, the last thing I wanted to do was concentrate.

Now I’m more comfortable with the work routine, all I can think about is books! In the last few months, I’ve seen hundreds of brilliant story lines come and go, yet I didn’t find the time to read any of them. But, I’ve got a feeling that 2016 is the year of books.

Before then, let’s review my bookish year so far!


Currently Reading:
The Girl With All The Gifts by M. R. Carey

Number of Books Read:
27 (so far). Super disappointed, but I won’t let this happen in 2016!

Number of Rereads:
3. I reread the Hunger Games trilogy!

Most Read Genre:
Young adult fiction. I just can’t get enough of it.

Memorable Reads:
The whole Harry Potter series:
It was beautiful, I’m so glad I finally got around to reading it! But, it made the first Harry Potter movie appear painfully awkward and horrible acted… oops.
The Delirium trilogy:
Super enjoyable, easy reads. A very clever dystopian story of a world who view love as a disease. I’d read these again.
You’re Never Weird on the Internet by Felicia Day:
I absolutely love this book. Felicia is just a beautiful person, and she deserves nothing but happiness.

Book Reviews:
Apocalypticon by Clayton Smith
The Curious Incident of the Dog in The Night-Time by Mark Haddon
Chasing Charli by Aneta Quinn
You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day
