Best of 2015

In 2015, I managed to finished reading 28 books totaling 8,365 pages. Much better than 2014, but still less than I like.

I'm not setting any goals for 2016, but I do hope to find more time to read. Over the holidays, I weeded my collection. Hopefully the smaller TBR pile at home will allow me more time to hit the library. I'm such a mood reader that I tend to read more and faster when I can grab whatever strikes me at the moment.

 Happily, the general quality of my reading seemed to be up this year. Here is the year in ratings.


1 = 10/10 [Best. Book. Ever.]
1 = 9/10 [Excellent!] 
7 = 8/10 [Terrific]
4 = 7/10 [Very Good]
9 = 6/10 [Good]
4 = 5/10 [Meh.]
1 = 4/10 [An "Okay" Book]
0 = 3/10 [Poor, Lost Interest]
1 = 2/10 [Awful]
0 = 1/10 [Don't Waste Your Time]

And here is the year in genres (totals more than 28 due to some books fitting multiple categories).

11 Fiction
4 Memoir
4 Food
3 Non-Fiction
3 Cookbook
3 Juvenile
1 Humor
1 Library Science
1 Young Adult
1 Drama

Finally, here are my top 5 reads for 2015.

5. Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead
4. In Search of the Perfect Loaf by Samuel Fromartz
3. The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
2. The Martian by Andy Weir
1. The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo
