Goodbye 2015

4:30 pm 10 Comments A+ a-

Hey Everyone!

Here we are on the last day of 2015, and what a year it's been! So many things have happened this year. Here are the highlights, in no particular order.

I started a newsletter, sharing the highlights from four different parts of my world: blogging, reading, writing and family. If you want to see my previous highlights of the month, check out my newsletter archive. To keep up with future updates, subscribe here.

I joined Camp NaNoWriMo and began writing my first novel. I got a big chunk written in July and I've been plodding away at it since then. I hope to finish the first draft early next year.

I read..... lots! I track all my reading on Goodreads, so if you can find all the books I read in 2015 here.  I read a total of:

  • 284 books
  • 70,584 pages
And blew my Goodreads reading challenge out of the water!


Asking me to choose my favourite book is like asking me to choose my favourite child, so here's a whole bunch of books that stood out this year. Links lead to my reviews.



Chick Lit


Women's Fiction


Fiction


Romance


Romantic Suspense


Rural Romance


Horror


Science Fiction


Thriller


Short Stories


New Adult


Young Adult


Middle Grade


Non Fiction


Free Verse

My most popular blog post of all time is How to ask a blogger to review your book, with three times the views as the next most popular post.

People must be reading it, because I haven't received a carbon copy review request in ages.

How was your 2015? 
What were your highlights? 
Do any of my stand out books match up with yours?
