Top 10 Books of 2015

One of my favorite parts about the end of the year is the feeling of wrapping things up. I like fresh starts, no matter how artificial they are, and everyone getting that same feeling of conclusion at the same time - looking back, making wrap-up lists like this one - just makes it feel that more complete.

And there is no better way to complete my year than to compile a list related to one of the most important parts of my life: reading. During 2015, 10 books stuck out to me as being new favorites, and the only thing I like more than reading new favorite books is convincing other people to read those books.

The unfortunate part is that when I started keeping track of these books, I still hadn't come up with the idea of this blog, so all I have written down are my very brief Goodreads reviews.

Launching December 31!

A while ago, I decided that I wanted to create a book blog. (Actually, I originally thought about creating a Booktube channel, but my incompetence with camera equipment quickly ruled that out, and I like writing more than talking anyway). Somehow, that turned into a pact with a friend (to be found at thepagesarebookining) to create joint blogs that we update at least once a week starting in 2016.

Here, you'll find monthly wrap-ups, monthly-ish TBRs, book reviews, recommendation lists, monthly (hopefully) posts about whichever book I'm reading with my friend, and, frankly, any book-related content that I feel like posting. It'll all start at the end of this year with a list of my favorite books that I read in 2015, and at New Year's, I'll be going full steam ahead!
