2015 Wrap-Up

I think I read 38 books this year. That is definitely the lowest number since I started reviewing. I've had some vision issues that affected my reading and I just got burned out on reviewing for deadlines. I don't know what 2016 holds for me in regards to reading and blogging. We will just see how it unfolds.

Favorites for the year...


Secrets of a Charmed Life
A Memory of Violets


Beyond All Dreams
The Dandelion Field


Ryder: Bird of Prey
Before We Go



The Girl on the Train
Chocolate Beach

This year I did my first film review, Before We Go only because I loved it, not because it was solicited. I also became part of a new book club that has been very enjoyable. New friendships are forming and we've had some great book discussions.

Thank you for continuing to visit and comment. May you discover many new books in 2016!

What about you? Any favorites or not so favorites from 2015?


  1. Sorry to hear about your vision issues. I've been having issues with my eyes as well and will go to a teaching hospital in February to see if they can help me.

  2. I hope the vision issues can be cleared up - I went through it this fall and am glad it has improved because it impacted my reading/reviewing. Sending good thoughts your way.

  3. I've had a little vision trouble, too. I should probably quit reading in spite of the headaches it gives me and get myself to an eye doctor. Hope you figure out the problem and get it cleared up, this year. I loved Girl on the Train, too, btw. Fun book.

  4. Darn that aging and the pesky changes that come with it! Girl on the Train as actually one of my big disappointments. I am finding though, that most people liked it.
