My 2015 in Books

Goodreads has this nifty little year-end feature called "My Year 2015 in Books" where you'll find your reading stats for the year, from shortest book to longest book you've read, total pages you've read, etc. I checked it out and here are the results:



And then the rest of the feature goes on to list all the books I've read in 2015. Pretty cool, really.

So I only read 32 books this year. I really don't mind. I'm fortunate enough to be able to have the extra time to read at all, and to be fair to myself, I really did make sure to find time to read. It's something personal, something I felt was non-negotiable because it's the only time I have for myself. Most of my waking hours are devoted to my family and day job, so being able to find time to read was something I felt I needed to do for myself, even if it's just a few pages of reading time every night. Sure, there were times I slowed down because the book I was reading practically bored me, but I always do my best to finish the books I've started. Which reminds me, I'll have to go back to a couple of titles again next year.

Here are the books I've read this year:




I won't pre-empt next year's reading activities because I have projects and stuff to do that need to be accomplished within the year, so as usual, I will just wing it. Next year - tomorrow! - I'll come up with some reading resolutions, but for now, let me leave you with the warmest new year's greetings. Keep safe, wherever you are in the world! Cheers to 2015!

I also find this Goodreads stats feature really cool. I have yet to write my own year-ender post. But I enjoy blog-hopping and reading other's posts more than writing my own haha. Happy new year, Monique! :)

Here's to winging it for 2016! Although I do have some titles scheduled already, so I'm not exactly winging it. Haha. But I have refrained from participating in any challenges this year. Here's to an awesome 2016, Monique!

So, it's a Wing It 2016 for everyone, then?
Cheers to that! ♥
