2015: A Year in Review


2015


| Books by Proxy – A Year in Review |

Welcome to my first end of year post – and what a year it has been! I started this blog on the last day of July and, over the last half of 2015, have found myself as part of a wonderful community of readers and bloggers. In my albeit limited experience, we book bloggers are lucky to enjoy a very friendly and supportive community, where sharing our books, our reviews and our experiences is all done for a love of reading and can be enjoyed by many. So thank you readers and thank you bloggers for making 2015 such an enjoyable year. I hope you all have a fantastic 2016!heart

I think we can all agree these two very similar and equally profound books, Blood Song by Anthony Ryan and The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, deservedly made it into my longest and shortest book categories.heart

There were so many more amazing books which deserve to be on this list but then it would just be most of 2015’s books!

  1. Thanks and I hope you’ll havea great 2016!

    Sounds like you had a great reading year! I also love Wodehouse and Christie. I’ve only read the first two Leon’s books and need to get back to them.

  2. You have read some great books and 115 is an amazing amount to finish! I love the layout to this post – I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging since July. My top 10 favourite books of 2015 post is up now and it was hard to dwindle it down to so few 🙂

    1. Thank you! It feels like a lot longer too! 115 would seem quite ridiculous if they didn’t vary so much in length.. or that’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it! 😀 I’ll definitely go and check out your post, I’m very intrigued to see which books topped your list!
