Reading in 2015

I looked at my 2015 list in Goodreads and it turns out I have read a total of 52 books this year. I think that’s really good, since I had a lot less time to read this year. Here are some stats:

  • 11 of them were in Turkish. (2 of these were translations)
  • 7 of them were nonfiction. (3 of these were baby related)
  • 10 of them were young adult.
  • 3 of them were rereads. I decided to read the Harry Potter Series and watch the movies afterwards. I’m also rereading the Princess Diaries which I have never finished anyways.
  • 11 of them were part of a series.
  • 3 of them were kids-lit. Or middle grade. I never know what to call these, since I rarely read these.
  • I have finished one series- Divergent by Veronica Roth.
  • 8 of them I found really dismal.

I have to say this wasn’t the best reading year for me. I enjoyed some of them quite a lot, and I will write about them soon, but none of them were what I’d call ‘the best book I ever read’. I have now seen that I have read so little nonfiction. I love nonfiction. I don’t know why I haven’t read much.

I think the best part of my year was rereading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. It was so enjoyable, like coming home again. Visiting somewhere you love. Seeing people you’ve missed. It was the best reading experience of 2015, by far. I’m so glad I decided to reread the series. It’s been years since I read them. I never reread them, since I’m not a big rereader, but now I see why people keep reading these. I’ve missed Dumbledore immensely. He’s my favorite character, in any book I’ve read so far. I think he might be perfection. What’s interesting is that I started reading it, and on the same day, I found out about the illustrated version. It had come out on that day. I didn’t get it yet. I don’t know if they’ll continue on doing the whole series, but if they do, I’d love to buy them as a set for my daughter, Selin. However, I’d prefer if she read a non-illustrated version first, just use her imagination first.

Anyway. That’s all I read in 2015. I’ll do more in depth blog posts about my favorites, the ones that I really enjoyed and the ones I really didn’t.
