I struggled with this list of favorites. Here’s a secret: I sometimes read two or three books a week. Other times I might just read one, and occasionally when things are really busy, I don’t finish a book in a week.
But for the most part, I read fast. Also, I don’t sleep much so don’t be overwhelmed with those numbers, I’ve never needed a ton of sleep so I get to read more than the average bear.
I am proud to say that one of my blog goals for 2015 was to post a book review every Saturday, and I actually followed through with it. Those posts are not my most-read and not a large traffic source for me, but like most things, I do them because it’s something I enjoy and the rest really doesn’t matter. I know that most of you skip them–totally cool–but I’m not stopping them either. I have started being more selective of what I review, sometimes it just shows up on my Instagram book account and doesn’t warrant a full review here.
One thing that was hard about this list is that some of these books were so long ago. Because I tend to read fast but only post reviews once a week, I get really far ahead on reviews. The books I’m reading right now won’t be reviewed until March. That’s what birthed the IG account because I couldn’t wait that long to talk about some of the books I was in. That’s also what birthed a more selective review process but I still need to narrow it down a little more, probably.
Oh well. I love books, you might not. I don’t know what is wrong with you, but I still love you because Jesus tells me to.
Here’s what I loved the most in 2015:
What was your favorite book of 2015? There’s no criteria except that you had to have read it this year. I have a never-ending list in my phone of books I want to read, so share your recommendations! On Friday, I’m sharing some of my list for 2016 so brace yourself if the book-talk is not your thing. Or maybe just come back tomorrow and then I’ll see you next week. It’s a free country. Also, I won’t know either way.
