My Favorite Books in 2015

It’s no secret that I love reading pretty much all books, but I especially love a book that I can get lost in. I love fiction, mysteries, fantasies and history. Books that are fast paced, magical, exciting and imaginative. For me, reading is for adventure and escape.

At the start of 2015 I had made a few goals. One of my more personal goals was that I wanted to get lost in one book every week of the year, to read 52 books. Looking back, I realize that this was quite an ambitious goal to set for myself. Although I tend to be a quick and determined reader, it is really no surprise that despite a strong start last January, come February I had fallen off the reading wagon.

Despite my failure, I still did a pretty good job and read more than I have in the last few years. In total, I read 29 books in 2015 – almost one book every two weeks. It definitely isn’t 52 books, but not all that bad if I do say so myself.

For 2016 I decided not to set a reading goal for myself. My hope is that thanks to all the practice I got in the last year, I will be able to continue the habit of reading a book every two weeks going forward. But if I don’t, that is okay too! For now, here are the books that I loved reading the most in 2015:


The Nightingale, Kristin Hannah


Career of Evil, Robert Galbraith


The Universe Versus Alex Woods, Gavin Extence


The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins


Wild, Cheryl Strayed
