    What a great list! Unfortunately I didn’t read much in 2015, which disappoints me. One of my intentions for 2016 is to read more…& I am reading each night in the tub ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I also read The Girl on the Train and I loved your summary of it! So true. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Michaela says:

    I’ll have to check these out!

  4. Wow you read a good amount of books this year. That is part of my goal in 2016 to read more. I’ve gotten more into autobiographies this past year. I like hearing about the things that made people who they are.
    One of the best books I read last year was Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari it really opens your eyes to the way the world is now days.

  5. Leslie says:

    Wow! What a great list! I’m hoping to tackle 8 or 9 books this year. Hah, I could do more if I didn’t have to work, blah. These look like some good ones, thanks for sharing.

  6. Wow, you read a lot last year! That’s great! I love the short little reviews.

      Thanks for stopping by! I used to write longer ones for blog posts, but it got tedious. The short ones I can keep in my excel spreadsheet as reminders as well.

  7. Victoria says:

    Thanks for this great list! I’ll be commuting via subway now, and I need some books!

    • caendicott says:

      I’ll be commuting to class this semester (1 hour away), and am planning on listening to audio books. That’s another option.

  8. Jen says:

    I like your list! I read several books last year but my most favorite two had to be The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom and The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore. I highly recommend checking those out!

  9. Leslie Rossi says:

    Loved Girl on the Train, can’t wait for the movie!

  10. You read a lot of books! Great job!

  11. angie Scheie says:
