So I've been doing a lot of thinking over the last week or so. It was probably about November when I took a look at my Goodreads challenge and realized how pitifully short I was falling from attaining my reading goal - initially it was 125 books, then it was 100... In the end I had to settle for 50.
The biggest reason for this is just a lack of focus, if I'm honest. I had the time to read, I just was busy doing other things! I think a small part of it might have been that I lost sight a bit of reading for myself - I was very focused on doing ARC reviews, and trying to keep up with all of the hype and the latest trend, so to speak. This year I've decided to do things a bit differently, and that includes changing up the stuff that I post here - not just review posts, but other things too. After all, this is a *blog*, not a review site!
So what better way to start off than briefly touching on the books that I really enjoyed in 2015? It's a bit late in the month, I suppose, but better late than never, right?
Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake was another one of my favourites. If you love the TV show Supernatural I can pretty much guarantee that you will adore this. It's so much fun, with a character who is easy to empathise with, interesting mythology and a ghost who isn't quite what you might expect her to be! This also has a sequel in case you're wanting more. :D
And there we have it! Since I only read 50 books, I think 6 top favourites is a good start. Hopefully I'll be able to bump that up a bit next year if I read more books!
