Books I read (listened to) in 2015


Tagged: , ,

I read over 80 books last year so I’ve put a list below of the ones I can remember or my library history tells me. I’ve mostly been a non fiction reader but since using the app Borrow Box and the app Overdrive I’ve expanded my horizons into genres that I wouldn’t normally explore.

Of the 52 books listed here, 20 were fiction (80% covering 3 compilations – Hunger Games series, Divergent Series, Twilight series and Tomorrow When the War Began Series with only the last series being written by a man – John Marsden) 32 were non-fiction.

Of the non fiction, they were mostly auto biographies or biographies, some historical and some about celebrities.

Favourite book/s? The Tomorrow When the War Began Series, No.’s 1, 3, 5 & 7.  Being a Victorian like the author, I can see the similarities between the locations in the book with locations he identifies in real life, I have kids the same age and know their own tenacity plus it’s such a well written series.
