I’m doing Jamie’s End of The Year Survey again because it looks like fun and I like reflecting on my past book feelings, so here we go!
FORTY. Let’s just ignore the fact that my goal was 100, okay? 😉
Zero! I meant to do re-reads but…that didn’t happen for reasons, such as, ARCs.
Contemporary! A surprise to no one.
Just one? How about five!?
Let future historians wonder how I reacted when you broke my heart. *breaks out of Hamilton trance*
So, it takes place in New York City, involves the summer before college starts and revolves around three new housemates. It had all the basics for my falling in love and lacked all the execution. 😦 I’ve officially DNF’ed this one, if it didn’t get read in the last six months, it’s just not getting read.
I was surprised by how much I loved both of these books.
I’d heard good things about E&O and I had it for review for a while, but it took me a long time to read. I was surprised at how good it really was. Clearly I shouldn’t doubt people. 😉
And I was surprised by the genres this book falls into, I wasn’t expecting it, but I should’ve.
I’m not really a book pusher, but I guess I’d say Because You’ll Never Meet Me, I don’t know if anyone actually read it based on me, but I’ve pushed it for sure.
The best series I started was Cinder, I didn’t read any sequels or series enders.
Courtney S Stevens!
I read Faking Normal a couple months ago and I really enjoyed it! I’ll be reading her future releases for sure.
And another repeat answer with Cinder. I don’t generally delve into fantasy, but given the moon aspect and the fairytale retelling, it’s no surprise I liked this.
I loved this book, in-between making Disney references on Goodreads while reading and telling my mom “OH MY GOSH, THIS BOOK.” I could not put it down. I thought it was very action packed and thrilling for sure.
I really don’t know. I don’t want to re-read any books as soon as next year. Not new releases anyway. It’d feel too soon. I would probably read Cinder out of any of them though if I binge read the series.
So we’re doing this. . .
I’m just going to direct you to this post I did where I showed off a lot of my favorite covers of the year.
I’m going to go with Cinder again because she’s like part cyborg, so you know, that’s pretty memorable.
And I’m going to go with The Walled City for this one as well. There’s a lot of flowery language in the novel and I really liked it. I liked the descriptions of China and everything.
This isn’t a surprise to me given that it’s based on actual events which makes it way more terrifying really. It made me think a lot and I thought it portrayed everything really well.
It’s Cinder again! I’ve had this book for over a year and I finally read it in either September or October. . . It’s funny, because I remember seeing this book when it first came out (Yes, I’m ‘that’ person) and I was like “Oh, that book looks cool” and forgot about it until years later when I joined the book blogosphere. Of course the book blew up since then.
What kind of question is that? No, really, what kind of question is that? I could make an entire blog post on this question. Don’t tempt me, I will, I’ll settle on this one though. For now. Just kidding, you’re getting at least three.
The more you start to love someone, the more you ache when they’re gone, and maybe it’s that middle ground that hurts the most, when you can see them and still not feel like you’re near enough.

How could someone hurt you so bad but you still wanted to hold him and tell him it was going to be okay?
-I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
I don’t think we should ever try to meet again, there’s such freedom in that. Instead, let our words continue to meet.
-Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
I did not see that coming…
Sky and Josh from. . .
Ollie and Moritz from Because You’ll Never Meet Me.
Emmy, Caroline and Drew from Emmy & Oliver.
Sky, Chris, and Dylan from I’ll Meet You There.
It also helps that I think this is the only book I read by an author who I read previously. 🙂
Josh from I’ll Meet You There
Ooh, just one? Um…More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera.
I’ll go with Cinder, it helps that this is the only book with any real world building I read. 🙂
Fun. Fun. Fun…
Um, psh, I don’t know. Oh! It was fun while it lasted….
Clearly this one:
I really liked Remember by Eileen Cook and I haven’t seen it talked about much at all.
Because You’ll Never Meet Me
What We Saw
Ugh, that book was so, irritating, characters were so annoying and awful.
I don’t know if I really have a new favorite book blog I discovered. That sounds bad, I did meet new people though! Or at least talk to them more. 🙂 Kind of.
This goes to…
Because You’ll Never Meet Me
Romancing The Dark In The City of Light
I really liked my feedreader discussion I had about organizing my BlogLovin’ account. It was inspired by another post during Bloggiesta earlier last year.
Bout of Books and Armchair BEA!
Bookish: Getting on the blogger’s list for St. Martin’s

Going by views, not counting reviews:
Top Ten Underrated Fairytales in The Fairytale Genre with 479 views.
This is still so unexpected. It’s weird.
I gave this post an attention seeking title for a reason, haha. I mean, come on, who reads in strip club? Who reads in a strip club? NO ONE. Except me. More views, more views.
Red Bubble and Society 6 have really fun book related stuff! I still haven’t purchased anything from either, but they have several things I like. 🙂
Not one of them! I completely failed this year. I blame it on committing to too many challenges and going through unforeseen reading slumps. 😦
I don’t like making false promises, however, a book that I didn’t read in ’15 but really, really want to read next year is Not After Everything.
These were the first four that popped into my head.<3 ❤ ❤
How about I list five again!?
Um, I think the Throne of Glass series is ending? Maybe? Either that or The Raven Cycle, I guess. Once again, not a series reader. 🙂
It would be nice to read at least 50 books this year.
