End of Year Survey -2015


Thanks to Jamie @ Perpetual Page Turner for this awesome end of year survey.

This year has been up and down with blogging. The year started with a high and I read so mamy amazing books right of the mark then near the end of the year I had a blogging slump but I am now back on the wagon so to speak and am excited for the next year, reading loads of amazing books and sharing them all with you. Here's to an amazing 2016!

End of Year stats:


Number of books read : 85

Number of Re Reads: 6 series
Genre you read most from: This year surprisingly it was Adult Erotica romance which is strange coming from a usually obsessed YA reader. I blame El James, Sylvia Day and Jodi Ellen Malpas for making me addicted.


Best in books

1. Best Book You Read In 2015?



Yea, I know you either love or hate it, every one has an opinion on it but this started my journey into a totally new genre for me this year. I read the whole trilogy at the beginning of the year and continued to Re Read it a further two times. What can I say am hooked!

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?



I was really looking forward to this book it sounded so good and was getting rave reviews and that cover! But I just ended up finding it meh! I don't know if it was because I was reading it on my kindle and didn't get the full experience of all the pictures or because I didn't really love the protagonist and the story didn't seem to go anywhere but I was really disappointed by this book.

3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?  


Undertow surprised me in a good way, a brilliant way in fact. I absolutely fell in love with this book. Mermaids and me do not get on but holy crap these mermaids are not mermaids but they are and its just so amazing. My Review says it all. 

4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?



I read this book at the tale end of 2014 ahead of its release in the beginning of the year and I fell in love. This book hit me so hard, my emotions couldn't handle it. It felt so raw and just sound a beautifully heart breaking story. Again my review says it all.

5. Best series you started in 2015? 




Best Sequel of 2015?

Richelle Mead hands down. I read all the Vampire Academy Series and all the Bloodlines Series this year and loved them! So excited to read more of Richelle's work.

  1. I totally agree with you about Undertow! I did not expect to like it as much as I did. I am very excited for the sequel in February! Of course, your survey reminded me that I needed to preorder it on Amazon. Thanks! The Last Time We Say Goodbye definitely made my list for books that made me cry this year. And it was so good! Great survey. :)

  2. I haven't read all the bright places but everyone was pushing it at me which is such a great thing! the cynthia hand book was apparently the best book people have ever read [on a few different peoples' opinions] i want to read something lifechanging too! for me, it was dumplin' by julie murphy, which deals with body positivity.
