This past year, I fell well short of my goal to read 40 books in a year. That being said, I enjoyed some of the best books I’ve ever read.
My least favorite book this year was King Solomon’s Mines.
My favorite fictional character goes to Tiffany Aching for a third year in a row, Mr. Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching series never seems to grow old.
A Moveable Feast was just that – delicious.
The best book I read this year was Unbroken. I am sure you were told by a friend to read it at to some point over the last few years and you need to listen to them. If not them then me. Please read it. I beg you.
If you don’t trust me just read one of the 15,000+ 5 star reviews on Amazon.com. I finished it a few weeks ago and I am not sure I can say it changed my life but it has changed its trajectory for now. I still cannot believe anyone lived that experience.
Thanks for reading, and please share any recommendations for 2015 in the comments section below. Thank you in advance.
