When I first set out on my 2015 reading challenge I didn’t expect to read anywhere near as many books as I have. I’ve managed to read 52! That’s averaging on 1 book a week! =O Having been unemployed for a period after graduating university and the empty period between finishing my last exam at university and moving home meant I had plenty of time to catch up with some reading that I had sorely missed in the years since beginning university.

My longest book of 2015 was “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” and my shortest book was “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”.

All in all I think my favourite book of 2015 has to be The Beach Cafe by Lucy Diamond and I’m thoroughly looking forward to the next little Beach Cafe Novella “A Baby at the Beach Cafe” coming out in February! 😀

2015 has let me discover several new authors, including Miranda Dickinson, Carole Matthews and Lucy Diamond, all of whom I am very glad to have found.

I have plenty of new books ready on my bookshelf for 2016 and I can’t wait to bring more reviews to you in the New Year.
