2015 Reading List


New Year. New list of books I want to read!

I love the GoodReads Reading Challenge. Once again, my goal for the year is 100 books. Didn't make it last year, but I'm determined to exceed it this year.

If you'd like to join me, CLICK HERE to be my friend.

Links go to my review site. If I was ambivalent or it just wasn't my thing, I usually don't review or even give a star rating. When I do give a rating, this is what it means:

3 Stars = good; 4 Stars = really good; 5 Stars = AWESOME!

Let me reiterate, 3 stars from me means it IS a good book. Starting this year, I'm rounding up on Amazon and GoodReads because their rating system is different from mine, and a 3 star review actually damages a book. Which is stupid (IMO). So if it's a solid 3 from me, I may not leave a review or stars on those sites, or I may choose to round up if it was a 3 1/2 for me because I'm not going to hurt a book that was good, but just didn't make it to raving status for me.
