I’ve done a post like this the past couple of years and I liked the way those turned out so I plan to continue in that pattern this year and post today about what I read in 2015 and what challenges I was able to complete.
So, here goes! 😉
Read a book blurb, find the rest of the books in a series, or learn more about an author by clicking on the cover of the book that interests you.
Looking back on 2015…..
I set 6 reading goals for myself at the beginning of 2015 (2 more than the previous year) and I’m happy to say that I was able to complete all of them! 🙂
New Author Challenge — Goal: Read at least 25 new-to-me authors in 2015
Completed: 09/01/15 — End Total: 42 (though I could only count 36 on my Goodreads challenge)
Library Book Challenge — Goal: Read at least 50 library books in 2015
Completed: 08/20/15 — End Total: 66
TBR list Challenge — Goal: Read at least 50 books from my TBR pile in 2015

Series Challenge — Goal: Finish at least 5 series in 2015
(I completed this goal on 04/08/15 & raised my goal to 10)

Christmas Reads Challenge (for December) — Goal: Read 7 Christmas books in December

I also tried to keep track of all the places I visited in my reading travels. I didn’t get it written down for every book I read, but I did for most of them.
I visited at least 41 states and 17 countries in 2015! 😀
Where did I spend most of my time? In England, Montana, and Texas.
And now I’m looking forward to seeing where 2016 will take me!
Below is a month-by-month list of the books I read in 2015…
Check them out — maybe you’ll find some books to add to your TBR list. 😉
