  1. Oh such good books! My list is coming out on Wednesday, after spending a good few hours putting it together (sigh!). I think I should just start working on the 2016 recap post now to save myself some time next year!

    1. Melinda - Haha! I know what you mean. I've learned to create a post at the beginning of each year and each month (or whenever I remember), I add to my running list of books read during the year, along with the links to my review. That way, the overall list of books read is nearly done come December. It's made things so much easier for me.

  2. You had a great reading year! I like seeing the full list of all you've read. There's too many here that I want to read to name but I know I definitely want to read The Girls of Atomic City. Happy New Year!

    1. Katherine - I didn't quite read as many as last year, but I was very close. I hope you do get a chance to read The Girls of Atomic City. It's worth it!

  3. Happy New Year Wendy. You really read a wide variety of books last year. Wishing you and yours much happiness in 2016.

    1. Diane - Same to you, Diane! Looking over the titles, I did read quite a variety. It was a good reading year. :-) You did too!

  4. Looks like you had an awesome reading year. Lots of your books are on my to-read list, so I'll have to check your reviews. Anne Bishop is one my must-finally-try-in-2016 list! Also, I'm intrigued about this Sandra Boynton chocolate book...

    1. Lindsay - I feel satisfied with what I read. So many good books. I hope you do get a chance to read Anne Bishop someday. Written in Red is a good place to start. :-) And you can't go wrong with Sandra Boynton. She's so funny.

  5. Excellent reading year for you! I see quite a few that I've read and many that I want to read Happy New Year.

    1. Nise' - Here's hoping for another year of great reading this year!

  6. Looks like an awesome 2015 list! I really enjoyed Written in Red and really need to catch up on that series soon!

    1. Cyn - I'm glad to hear you enjoyed Written in Red too. It was such an awesome book! I can't wait to read the latest.

  7. What a great list of books! And I'm impressed by how many of your books you've reviewed. That's something I'd like to work on this year; there are too many reviews I've let slide.

    1. Lark - Thank you! I try not to let too many of my book reviews pile up, but it happens.

  8. Happy New Year to you and your family Wendy! You had a great reading year! I've been wanting to read The Girl on the Train, maybe I will get to it this year.

    1. Naida - Same to you and your family! I enjoyed The Girl on the Train and hope you do to when you get to it! Avoid spoilers at all costs!

  9. Not a bad list! well done on a great reading year.
