2015 End of Year Book Survey

Number Of Books You Read: 62 (as of 12/18)
Number of Re-Reads: 8
Genre You Read The Most From: Teen/YA/Supernatural

1. Best Book You Read in 2015?
YA/Fantasy: Winter by Marissa Meyer
YA/Sci-Fi: Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor
Non-YA: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?
Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee, which I'd probably slate as the greatest literary disappointment of the century.

3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?
Either The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer or Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. Their covers and summaries made me think they'd be totally cliche, but they're among my favorite series of all time now that I gave them the chance.

4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)? 
I'm buying my boyfriend's mom some Gillian Flynn books for Christmas so hopefully those, plus I convinced a couple people to read Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.

5. Best series you started in 2015? Best Sequel of 2015? Best Series Ender of 2015? 
Best Series: Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
Best Sequel: Where She Went by Gayle Forman
Best Series Ender: Winter by Marissa Meyer

6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2015?
Gillian Flynn, hands down.

7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?
Linger (Wolves of Mercy Falls #2) by Maggie Stiefvater. I usually avoid werewolf novels like the plague.
