Book Wrap-Ups, Hang-Ups & Hopes

New Year Beauty

So I have a weird thing about taking stock of my yearly books. Once the New Year gets closer I have to finish everything I’ve been reading. (Save for that one audio book I’ve been working on for two years.) So that it all counts and I can start fresh in the New Year.

I also completely overthink my first book of the New Year and the first movie I watch as it completely sets the stage.

2015 Book Round-Up: Reading Challenge, Story Sprites and Favorites

2015 BOOK ROUND-UP: Reading Challenge, Favorites & Story Sprites Wrap Up

 I am one of those people that likes to finish a year as best I can. When 2016 dawns I like to be fresh as possible so here’s one last book related post to keep me sane as the year comes to an end.

 Reading Challenge:

 Well, I came close right? And that was with no rereads at all. But I have to be honest I get way to into these things and I’m going to be cutting this down in 2016. I do want to do a couple of rereads this year and my sick need to meet this challenge personally took some of the fun out of reading.

 Favorite Reads of 2015 (in no real order):

All the Rage- Courtney Summers

Ms. Marvel & The Goddess of Thunder

Simon vs. The HomoSapiens Agenda- Becky Albertalli

The Prom-Goer’s Interstellar Excursion- Chris McCoy

  And my top three which are just screaming, “Hey! Make a movie out of us!”

Vengeance Road- Erin Bowman

Naked- Eliza Redgold

Circling the Sun- Paula McLain

 Story Sprites:

 Last but not least I participated in the Story Sprites game from Great Imaginations:

Story-Sprties-Round-2-Autumn

 After an excellent start in October I only wound up finishing two paths so that certainly could have gone better! But it was fun and while I didn’t get everything read I certainly have some good ideas for future reading that are already added to my endless TBR!

 So that’s basically it book wise for 2015!

 I hope everyone has a HAPPY NEW YEAR’S! Bring on 2016!!!
