{ Yearly Wrap-up } Wrapping-up my bookish year of 2015


Hi Everyone,

I love the idea to rate a whole year of reading. A perfect way to recap all that we have read, to wrap-up 2015 and to start fresh this new year 🙂

So this year, I’ve read 44 books, so that’s 13 122 pages (at first I planned 60, but with full 5 months without reading a single page, only writing my master thesis, so I had to reduce my challenge to 40). My average rating is 3.6, which is higher than my all-time average so we can say that 2015 was a good year 🙂

If you want more of my 2015-year on GR is here

Shadow and Bone (Shadow and Bone, #1) by Leigh Bardugo my review

Favourite quote(s) of 2015: 

“Why won’t you leave me alone?” I whispered one night as he hovered behind me while I tried to work at my desk.
Long minutes passed. I didn’t think he would answer. I even had time to hope he might have gone, until I felt his hand on my shoulder.
“Then I’d be alone, too,” he said, and he stayed the whole night through, till the lamps burned down to nothing.”

― Leigh Bardugo, Siege and Storm

“Though he’d trusted her with his life countless times, it felt much more frightening to trust her with his shame”

― Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows
