Top Books of 2015!

Here is my list of top books of 2015. I only read 43 booksthis year with most of them being comics/manga so my actual book count was very low. Surprisingly, my favourites is very low too! I thought I’d had a decent reading year but right now, trying to get a top ten is really hard! (This may end up being a top 5 instead!) So let’s have a look! (In no order)

My Top Books of 2015:

1.  The Well of Ascension – 4.5 Stars (review coming soon!)
2.  The Name of the Wind – 5 Stars
3.  The Girl at Midnight – 4 Stars
4.  An Ember in the Ashes – 4.5 Stars

I didn’t even manage a top 5!! O dear xD I must read more amazing books this year!

The Well of Ascension (Mistborn, #2)An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1)The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1)The Girl at Midnight

Honourable Mentions:

1. Sourcery – 4 Stars
2. Angelfall – 3 Stars
3. City of Stairs – 3.5 Stars

I enjoyed these books a lot but they just weren’t favourites nor have I thought about them since I finished them unlike the ones above.

Sourcery (Discworld, #5)Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)City of Stairs

Disappointments of the Year:

A Court of Thorns and Roses eSampler by Sarah J. Maas

I DNF’d two of these two. But I don’t really need to explain these right?

There we have it! Have a wonderful January 1st!

I finally did it! At 10:30pm last night I finally finished The Well of Ascension! After putting off reading the book for over 2 years(!), I finally got the guts to pick it up and it was amazing! (review coming soon!)

Currently Reading

Nothing. I do want to start Hero of Ages very soon but I think I’m gunna break the 2 and 3 book up by reading a smaller book in between but no idea what that will be. Probably a manga.

TBR

The new year always brings about a new motivation for reading so I’ve been thinking that I’d like to get through these this month:

The Hero of Ages (Mistborn, #3)Orange 3 (オレンジ, #3)

I have a quiet month socially (unlike December which was crazy!) so should be able to get more reading done ^_^

What are your Wraps Up and TBRs for December and January?

2016 Resolutions!

It’s that time of year again!! I am definitely going to try and make more realistic goals this year unlike last year xD Let’s have a look shall we?

 

  1. Read 50 books – I seem to read about 45 books every year and only ever give myself like a 20 book goal, so I wanna see if I can push myself xD
  2. Manga/Book ratio – It’s back this year and I really want my book total to outweigh my manga total.
  3. Get Kindle Books down to 80 – I have an insane amount of kindle books (168 books)and that needs sorting!
  4. Get English Physical Books down to 20 – I think I’m currently at 45.
  5. Finish ALL Arcs – seriously, I need to BAN myself from NetGalley and get some reading done!
  6. Finish 5 Brandon Sanderson books – A serious tone down from last year where I wanted to read ALL the books by him but like I said, I’m being more realistic this year xD. I mainly wanna finish the first Mistborn trilogy and then I am thinking of reading his earlier bookes; Elantris and Warbreaker. Also they are currently not part of a series so I think it’d be good for me to get through those two.

  7. Finish a novel – even if it’s for NaNoWriMo!
  8. Read 2 classics
  9. Finish 3 series – manga is allowed!!
  10. Continue #Project5Books – even though I failed it this year xD
  11. Read a full-length Japanese books – I will do this!!

 

And they are my goals! I definitely have more fun making goals rather than completing them xD
