Best Books of 2015

This year I'm posting about my Best Books of 2015 and my Best Re-Reads of 2015. I started with the latter, but now finally doing my best books post :D I have read 105 books this year. Goodreads says one less, but that is because I read Fairest twice this year. Ack. I wish I had read more, as one hundred feels like so little. But I wasn't able to read more. Sometimes I didn't feel like reading at all. But other times I wanted to read all the time. But I can say that this year I read the best books I have in a long time, I think. I re-read so many. See my Best Re-Reads of 2015 post here. <3 So many amazing books read and re-read this year. The first three are definitely the most favorites, but the rest might be randomly placed. Maybe. But point is, I loved all of these books so much. I loved so many books this year. And I cannot wait to read and love even more next year. Really hoping and thinking that I will read much more. Fingers crossed. Have you guys read any of these books? And do you have a list posted? Would love to see it. I just loved these books so much. Ahh. My Goodreads Challenge. My Goodreads Year in Books.

I also wanted to share a few stats about the books that I read. Seeing it on goodreads, but also including that I read Fairest twice. And all of my other re-reads. So anyway. This year I had one DNF. And I only read one 1 star book. But then I read twelve 2 star books. Sigh. And nine 3 star books. I read twenty one 4 star books. And I gave 5 stars to sixty one books. Eeee. That is a lot. But I loved that many. Though twenty seven of those were re-reads. Hmph. I really hope to read and love much more books next year.
