  1. Great post, Kay!! Wow, you did a wonderful job of keeping track of everything and I love this statistical type post. Yay, for no DNF's and I see lots of 5 stars as well! Hope this year brings even more favorite new reads :)

    1. I had a LOT of fun working on this survey. :D Fingers crossed that 2016 is also a great reading year.

  2. Oh my gosh, this is such a cool post Kay! Statistics surveys sound cool :) I also really enjoyed Finding Audrey because I also have anxiety, but I do have to say that I was bothered at how anxiety was portrayed in the book.

    1. It was a lot of fun to fill out and look at all the reading and blogging I did this past year. I can see what you mean about Finding Audrey, but overall I loved it.

  3. I have been meaning to read The Royal We and I definitely need to prioritize that baby since it was the happiest book you read in 2015!! And is it bad that I cackled when I saw you listed Selection as the worst hahah. I hope 2016 is just as good of a reading year :)

    1. You must read it!!! It actually makes it better that you cackled. hahahaha
