TOP 15 BOOKS OF 2015

Hi everyone,

The year is nearly over! Whilst this fills me with panic, it does mean that it's time for the most exciting post of the year- my top 15 books of 2015!

I've read exactly 100 books this year (so far), 20 more than my original goal, so it was really hard to pick just 15 of them to mention in this post. There were just so many great books this year! These are the best of the best, the books that truly blew me away and stayed with me ever since I read them. Because I love these books so much, I might not be entirely coherent when I'm talking about them. Sorry about that!

NOTE: If I read a whole series this year and wanted to include it on the list, my favourite book has been chosen to represent the whole series. Otherwise half the list would just be Harry Potter.

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: SERIES I WANT TO START NEXT YEAR

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY IS A WEEKLY MEME CREATED BY GINGERREADSLAINEY. YOU CAN FIND MORE INFORMATION IN THE GOODREADS GROUP.

Hi everyone,

I know this sounds crazy, but 2015 is nearly over! Where did all the time go? I'm already starting to think about what I want to read next year, so it's totally fitting that this weeks top 5 Wednesday topic is TOP 5 SERIES I WANT TO READ IN 2016.

I actually did this topic last year (when I'd just started blogging!) and...well, I've only read one of the series. Oops. Even so, I tried to think of a whole new list so I'm not repeating myself.

*This list only contains series where at least one book has already been released. Series that begin publication in 2016 don't count.*

'TIS THE SEASON BOOK TAG

Hi everyone,

There's only THREE DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS, and that's counting today! To celebrate, I'm going to be doing some Christmas-themed book TAGs leading up to the big day.

Today I'm doing the 'tis the season book tag, which was created last year by RichardDenney on youtube. Nobody tagged me, but it's fun and festive so I'm doing it anyway.

WRITERS WEEKENDS: WRITING DURING THE HOLIDAYS


Hi everyone,

We're now deep into the holiday season, and my life is getting pretty hectic. With so much going on in these festive months, it can be really hard to try and keep up your writing whilst still having the time to enjoy whatever holiday you celebrate.

With that in mind, I put together a list of five tips for keeping up your writing productivity during the holidays!

DISCLAIMER: I am totally not a writing expert and everybody works differently, but this is just what works for me.

CHRISTMAS TBR!

Hi everyone,

I'm finally out of school for the Christmas holidays, and I'm so excited that I'm going to have time to read over the next two weeks. I feel like I haven't been able to just sit down with a book for ages!

Without further ado, here's a quick TBR with all the books I want to read over the next few weeks...

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: BOOKS TO READ BY THE FIRE (HOLIDAY/WINTER READS)


TOP 5 WEDNESDAY IS A WEEKLY MEME CREATED BY GINGERREADSLAINEY, AND YOU CAN FIND ALL OF THE INFORMATION IN THE GOODREADS GROUP
Hi everyone!

Christmas is almost upon us, and I am practically bursting with festive spirit. Of course it's only fitting that this weeks topic for Top 5 Wednesday is my top 5 Winter/Holiday reads.

These books aren't all about Christmas, they're not even all winter-themed, but they do all have a festive vibe to me. They're also all really good, and I definitely recommend them whether you celebrate Christmas or not!

In no particular order...

OCTOBER + NOVEMBER READING WRAP-UP

Hi everyone!

It's been a busy few months, to say the least. So busy, in fact, that I've hardly had any time to read at all. It SUCKS. Since I only got the chance to read seven full books (and the last halves of two others) across both October and November I decided to just put them all in one wrap up now.

This post is a total mess, sorry! I just wanted to get everything wrapped up so I could move into December without worrying about it. Anyway, here are all the books I read over the past few months...
