My “have read” 2015 book list

Another new list to keep track of what books I’ve read in a year, and maybe it will help you find something you’d like to add to your stash. NOTE: if there are any you’d like to purchase please go to my page BUY THE BOOK! to see if it is listed there.

Any book I have marked *(ARC)* is an Advanced Reading Copy I was given for my free and honest review.

Purple is to indicate the books I read listened to on Audible so that I can do other things at the same time as “reading.”(Refer to

My reading interests vary as I like to include exploring children’s books since I hope to one day author one … or, better yet, several. If you’re interested in any on this list or are encouraged to read more, too, do let me know! If you have suggestions of what may look good in my reading stash I’d love to hear about it. :) Happy Reading!
