And because I’m such a big nerd, here’s a breakdown of the reading categories that took up most of my time last year:


I’m actually a little shocked to see that I only managed to read one historical fiction in 2015. Definitely need to work on that. I’m already reading a few different books on spiritual matters, so that’s going to be upped in 2016. What’s funny to me is that I still managed to read more sci fi and fantasy titles than romantic books (my category includes more than just romance novels, btw – it’s also books that are more serious but also revolve around a romantic premise, like The Rosie Project, an excellent book about an Australian college professor with Aspergers, and his search for love).

This new year is already shaping up to be the year of the trade paperback, if my current list predicates a continuing pattern. However, I’d really like to get a few new WWII books under my belt, as well as some Bernard Cornwell, and some more hefty fantasy and sci fi titles, like The Martian and The Magicians. Wish me luck!
