Genre You Read The Most From: Adult, mostly contemporary.
1. Best Book You Read In 2015?
2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?
3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?
This book was surprising because I hadn’t expected to love it as much, although Harlow is one of my favorite authors. I actually think it’s her best work so far.
4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?
This honestly is such a hard question. I wouldn’t say I “push” people to read books. I always recommend books by Eoin Colfer but I don’t think people actually follow that particular recommendation. FOOLS!
5. Best series you started in 2015? Best Sequel of 2015? Best Series Ender of 2015?
Best series ender: Winter by Marissa Meyer
6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2015?
7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?
The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith
I barely read mystery books but these… oh they’re so amazing. And not just because they’re written by Rowling. I genuinely enjoyed them and to be honest, as much as I love the Harry Potter books (and I really do!) I actually liked The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm more. I know they can’t be compared but it’s just how I feel.
8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year?
This definitely has to be The Drafter. It pretty much blew my mind. There was a lot of action and also kind of fucked with my head. Gotta love those books.I can’t wait to read the next one!
9. Book You Read In 2015 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year?
I really don’t re-read a lot of books because there are so many other unread books that I still need to get to but if I would re-read a book (that isn’t a Eoin Colfer or Karen Marie Moning book) it would be Uprooted. Why? Because it reminded me of Howl’s Moving Castle and I loved it so much. Such a fantastic book!
10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2015?
11. Most memorable character of 2015?
12. Most beautifully written book read in 2015?
13. Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2015?
14. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2015 to finally read?
I actually read this book pretty recently and I don’t know what it did to me but wow! I could barely stop reading in it and I loved all the unexpected twists the story took. I’ve had it since 2013 I think and it’s even a signed copy. Why didn’t I read it sooner?!
15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2015?
16.Shortest & Longest Book You Read In 2015?
Longest: Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon – 947 pages

Scarlet & Winter
20. Favorite Book You Read in 2015 From An Author You’ve Read Previously
21. Best Book You Read In 2015That You Read Based SOLELY On A Recommendation From Somebody Else/Peer Pressure
I’ve seen quite a few people rave about this book, especially Bieke from Istyria Book Blog, so when I saw it on vacation last summer I bought it right away and I loved it!
22. Newest fictional crush from a book you read in 2015?
23. Best 2015 debut you read?
24. Best Worldbuilding/Most Vivid Setting You Read This Year?
25. Book That Put A Smile On Your Face/Was The Most FUN To Read?
These books are just so much fun and Thor is awesome to read about.
26. Book That Made You Cry Or Nearly Cry in 2015?
Some parts in this book were so freaking sad, I couldn’t help but cry with it. But it was my favorite book in the series so far!
27. Hidden Gem Of The Year?
This was SO good. As are all books by Michelle Diener. I wish more people knew about it!
28. Book That Crushed Your Soul?
Only because it was the last book and I still can’t deal with that!
29. Most Unique Book You Read In 2015?
This definitely was the most unique because it has angels in it and I actually liked it (shocking, I know!). Also because it was fantasy and there was some hidden greek mythology in it also that I caught.
