2015 Challenge Complete

Happy 2016! It’s that time of year again… Time to set new goals, eat less Christmas cookies and start a new reading challenge. 2015 ended with a viewing of The Martian (it was great!) and Chicago Rising (it was not). I also finished Brooklyn to top off last year’s reading challenge. I expected it to be more mushy and romantic and was surprised to find it sort of logical and realistic instead! The descriptions of the difference between life in Brooklyn and small-town Ireland were my favorite parts of the book. This goes under a book that became a movie, and the movie is getting great reviews so I’m excited to see it!

Here are the books I read in 2015:

Brooklyn // Ten Thousand Saints // The Sun Also Rises

The Martian // How to be Both // The Girl on the Train

Unbroken // Me Before You // Quiet

The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace // Dark Places

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone // Little Bee

Lake Wobegon // Tell the Wolves I’m Home

..Mission accomplished!

And on to the next one! I had some family members help me pick a few categories from Popsugar‘s 2016 list. More on that next time!
