My Year in Books (2015 Edition)

      

This year is almost over (how did that even happen?) and I'm really happy because I've read so many amazing books! :D

My reading challenge this year was to read 22 books... and I read 49.


When I was studying I never really got time to read, so I actually thought 22 books would be a lot. Then I finished all my subjects (THANK YOU, GOD) and, while I was going to a bunch of interviews looking for my internship, I had a lot of free time to read :)... Oh and I also discovered NetGalley.

And Goodreads has this very cool feature that shares with you some statistics about your whole year. These are some of mine:


And these are the books I read. You can see the reviews I've written for most of them, and I put a cute, little heart next to the ones that got 5 stars from me :3
