Survey Says:

1. Best Book You Read In 2015?

(If you have to cheat — you can break it down by genre if you want or 2013 release vs. backlist)

Memoir: Last Night At The Viper Room, I am a child of the '80's.
Fiction: The Book Theif, took me a while to get to it but it did not disappoint

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?

Landlines and The Room. I had heard lots of good stuff and,

3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read? 

Called, the actual story about the day was SHORT. A good portion of the book was just stories other other family members, which in my opinion is a whole other book.
4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?

I don't really do this. If someone asks, I'll offer suggestions...but I don't push books. Everyone's interests (and tolerances) always seem so very different.

5. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2015 to finally read? 

The Book Thief

6. Book That Made You The Most Mad (doesn’t necessarily mean you didn’t like it)?

Gone Girl. Just....wordless.

7. Did you complete any reading challenges or goals that you had set for yourself at the beginning of this year?

I failed every challenge this year. Oh well, here's hoping 2016 is more productive!
