2015 - A Year of Blogging & Announcement


Hi Everyone, this is now the last post of 2015 and what a year it has been. I think although I haven't been as active on the blog as I would have hoped I think I have accomplished so many things that I thought I never would have thought. I have read some incredible books, I have met my favourite author and I've attended some awesome publishing events. I have met some more  awesome bloggers and continue to be in touch with some of my closest friends. I'm even lucky to have so much in common with some of my friends besides books. I guess that for me is the best thing about having a blog and having such an audience such as you. This will be my last post until 4th January 2016. Having a well deserved break, spending Christmas round my grandparents and then relaxing for a week full of reading and sadly working. 

So speaking of books here are my Top Ten Tweleve Books of 2015. I found it hard to choose 10 as I had to add a couple of extras that I've recently read. Links to my reviews and/or Goodreads. If anything that stood out for me it was Am I Normal Yet? This is one author that I'm a HUGE fan of if you haven't already guessed and she is truly an inspiration. There is nothing like her honest words and realistic values of YA fiction. It also could be something to do with the fact I'm quoted in all her books. ;) Close runners up would also be, Everything Everything, Twist and The DUFF!

  1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I really loved The Duff when I read it too. I thought the movie did a good job overall - I mean, it's different, but the overall message is there!
