Books Read in 2015

Ah, what a year. Between the extensive reading for my comprehensive exams in the Spring and the laser focus I put into preparation for my dissertation proposal in Fall, this year’s reading list was a bit more fantastical than my usual fare, with me trying to escape into some fun, distracting readings when I got the chance! As I am currently in the middle of two excellent biographies, this trend seems to already be changing for 2016 – but I had a great year overall and still look forward to reading as much as I can.
Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 11.32.57 AMMy two faves this year were “Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore” by Robin Sloan and “Me Before You” by Jojo Moyes. Both of them blindslided me: the former being far more in-depth, thought-out, and fun than I would have expected (plus, didn’t hurt that I gave plenty of love to San Francisco while I was there this summer!); the latter was a thought-provoking, beautifully sad book I never normally would have read, but am so happy I was able to experience. I highly recommend both and would love to hear thoughts about them!

As always, feel free to check out my past year’s faves and reading lists, and my up-to-date progress and reviews on Goodreads. On to 2016!
