2015 End of Year Survey: Part 1


This is hosted by Jamie @ Perpetual Page-Turner!  It does such a nice job of wrapping up the year and everything that happened in your reading life!  I know, I know it's a lot late but I'm not all that good at planning ahead!  I'll be posting my resolutions and goals for 2016 in a post shortly after this one!


Number Of Books You Read: 100
Number of Re-Reads: A countless number - I didn't keep track this year!
Genre You Read The Most From: Romance/YA


1. Best Book You Read In 2015?

(If you have to cheat — you can break it down by genre if you want or 2013 release vs. backlist)
 I couldn't choose just one so here are my top 3!

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


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


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

You know, I actually don't have one for this.  I don't think I really pushed people to read a book and they actually did. 

 5. Best series you started in 2015? Best Sequel of 2015? Best Series Ender of 2015?

Best series I started goes to A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas - My review HERE

Best sequel goes to The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen - My review HERE

Best series ender goes to Champion by Marie Lu - My review HERE

 6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2015?

I have two for this!



7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?

I have two for this one as well!


 8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year?

Haha two for this one again!


 9. Book You Read In 2015 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year?

10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2015?

This was really tough, but my pick is:

This cover represents the story so well!  And I've always been a sucker for pretty dresses :)

11. Most memorable character of 2015?

I've got two for this:
Carrie by Stephen King - my review HERE
Carrie as well as her mother were definitely memorable, even though I didn't like the overall book.


Champion by Marie Lu - my review HERE
Day is definitely memorable!

 12. Most beautifully written book read in 2015?

I just can't decide!  There are two for this as well!


13. Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2015?

I have serious decision issues, okay??  I have four for this...





 14. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2015 to finally read? 

 15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2015?


I could never pick just one!  I did a post on this during BookBlogWriMo though.  Here it is!

16.Shortest & Longest Book You Read In 2015?

805 pages

 17. Book That Shocked You The Most

(Because of a plot twist, character death, left you hanging with your mouth wide open, etc.)

18. OTP OF THE YEAR (you will go down with this ship!)

Two again!
Caymen and Xander are adorable together!

Feyre and Tamlin are perfect together!

The relationship between Matt and Annie as well as between Matt and Jeremiah is so great!

    1. I did too! It was so beautifully written and lyrical and had such a great message! I was bawling by the end :) I'm so glad you liked it too!

      It definitely is! There are lulls but the tension never gives way!
