2015 Reading Stats {The Year That Was}

2015 was a weak reading year for me. For whatever reason, I just couldn’t get in to a groove. That being said, I still read some pretty great books. My goal was to read 35 books and I read 32. Here’s how it breaks down…

Fiction– 29

Nonfiction– 3

Audiobooks– 9

Longest Book– The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss at 662 pages

Genre I read the most of– Besides graphic novels, it was mystery.

The Most Memorable Books I Read

The Martian by Andy Weir

The Likeness by Tana French

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids by Laura Markham

{See all of the books I read in 2015 here.}

2015 was the year that I introduced myself to graphic novels. I was looking for something to read that was short, didn’t require a lot of brain power, and kept me entertained, while I dug my way out of my reading rut. Graphic Novels fit the bill. Of the 32 books I read, 11 were graphic novels.

In 2016 I hope to read more nonfiction, continue exploring graphic novels, track my diverse reads, use audiobooks and my library more, and plow through more of my TBR pile.

What genre did you read the most of in 2015?

    I’d say 32 books is impressive! I haven’t read any of the books you mentioned, though The Martian is on my list for this year. I’m not sure how many books I read last year, but in the first half of the year I was on a serious kick with books of short stories. My favorites were The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Redeployment by Phil Klay. Oh and I reread my all time favorite collection- Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri. I ended the year on a poetry kick (specifically Mary Oliver and Carolyn Forche) but now I’m all about the novels 🙂

    • Sounds like you had a great reading year. You’ve reminded me of short stories. I didn’t read any last year but I’d like to add some this year.

  3. That was a good goal, and you almost reached it!! But….if you loved what you read, the numbers do not matter.

    It looks like a very good year for you!!

    I hope this week is good!!
