What a pleasure, to look back at everything you have read during the last year! Here is my summary, regarding literature, of this year.
In 2015 I have read a total of 65 books. Alright, I’m reading the 65th right now, but I’m confident I’ll finish it by Thursday.
I read 16 books in English and 33 in Spanish.
29 books were written by women and 36 by men.
I read 24 non-fiction books.
I read 11 ebooks on my kindle.
I listened to 16 audiobooks, all of them in English.
Best books of the year:
It’s easy to know them if you read my blog, because I don’t review all the books I read; only the ones I like the most. So, in no particular order, the best are:
◊ As you wish, by Cary Elwes: well, this one is in order
◊ The unicorn road, by Martin Davies.
◊ September, by Rosamunde Pilcher.
◊ A short history of nearly everything, by Bill Bryson.
◊ Sparrow: the story of a songbird, by Giovanni Verga.
◊ The martian, by Andy Weir.
◊ The bookseller, by Cynthia Swanson.
Worst books of the year:
Fortunately for you, most of them are only in Spanish, but there were a couple of them in English you should know about:
◊ With every letter, by Sarah Sundin: I didn’t even review it here. The characters were dull and they were praying almost all of the time, so this was not my book.
◊ Go set a watchman, by Harper Lee: yes, I do think To kill a mockingbird and Go set a watchman can’t coexist. They are two different stories with the same characters, and that’s why it was not published in the 60s: because it’s not a second part.
Oh my! This is embarrassing, but I didn’t finished any challenge. Only the Non-fiction reading challenge can be considered accomplished, but I didn’t review ten books, so I can’t say I did it.
I didn’t even finished my own challenge about reading 20 books in English, you know 😥
Well, it’s not that bad for this busy girl.
I don’t think I can read a larger amount of books in 2016, but I hope every one of them deserves to be reviewed, because that would mean I had a good time reading them.
May your reads for this new year be enjoyable!
