Top Books of 2015

Posted: February 2, 2016 in Uncategorized

Hello dear friends and welcome to the newest category of my top lists! This one is a little different in that the books didn’t have to come out this year, BUT they had to be a new read to me (or a reread of something I may not have grasped when younger). Reading came back into my life in a big way this year, while I’ve always enjoyed reading, I didn’t read nearly as much as I wanted to over the last few years. So in 2015 I set the goal of reading 25 books, I blew that away. I read/listened (yay being an auditory learner) 61 new books! So here are my top books of 2015, in no particular order but split it into fiction and nonfiction.
