    What a great list! Unfortunately I didn’t read much in 2015, which disappoints me. One of my intentions for 2016 is to read more…& I am reading each night in the tub 😉

      You like to live dangerously then? (Meaning the reading in the tub) I was always afraid of dropping the book.

      I usually don’t read Best Sellers because they tend not to live up to the hype, but this one did.

    Wow you read a good amount of books this year. That is part of my goal in 2016 to read more. I’ve gotten more into autobiographies this past year. I like hearing about the things that made people who they are.
    One of the best books I read last year was Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari it really opens your eyes to the way the world is now days.

    Wow! What a great list! I’m hoping to tackle 8 or 9 books this year. Hah, I could do more if I didn’t have to work, blah. These look like some good ones, thanks for sharing.

      The cozy corner mysteries (the themed ones) are quick reads. I like escapism, and these fill that need.

      Thanks for stopping by! I used to write longer ones for blog posts, but it got tedious. The short ones I can keep in my excel spreadsheet as reminders as well.

      I’ll be commuting to class this semester (1 hour away), and am planning on listening to audio books. That’s another option.

    I like your list! I read several books last year but my most favorite two had to be The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom and The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore. I highly recommend checking those out!
