2018 Bookish Year Recap

Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

I cannot believe that I am writing my last post of 2018 already! While I wrote before that I thought this year went by pretty slowly, this month went by extremely fast!

In 2018, my reading goal was twelve books. I knew that I would not have a lot of time to spare for reading this year, and that was very evident by my complete lack of blogging for the majority of the year. However, I came back in October and have been blogging (and reading) ever since! I ended up finishing fifteen books, and am still in the midst of reading two novels for schools which I plan on finishing in January. In this post, I will only be sharing the books that I fully finished this year during the months of October to December of 2018.

You can click on the name of the month to directly read my wrap-up post for that specific month. You can click on a specific book cover to read my review of the book (if you click on a cover and nothing happens, that is because I have not yet written a review for it yet).

2015 Year In Review: Most Disappointing Books of 2015

Hi everyone!

Today is the first time in a LONG TIME where I’m actually posting the proper post on the proper day! As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been catching up on my posts so for the last few days I’ve published almost 4 posts a day but dated them different days… Oops! Anyways, I was looking for something to post today and I came across a post that I did last year about the most disappointing books of 2015. I don’t like to be a “Debbie Downer”, but I thought that it would be kind of fun to write this post, just to voice my opinion and say that not every book I read is 4 or 5 stars!

You can read last years post here!

So, today I’m going to share with you my top 3 most disappointing books of 2015…

  1. Kissing In America by Margo Rabb.

This book has excellent ratings and I thought I was going to love it… turns out this is the worst book I have ever read, and I’ve read a lot of books. I received this book from HarperCollins Canada and it was my first book I’d ever received from them. I felt so bad that I hated it, and didn’t end up reviewing it. Now that I’m a lot more comfortable with them, I figured I would share this with you now! I ended up giving this book 0/5 stars. I hated the setting and all of the characters. Especially the whiny emotional wrecked “bee” (what do you think I mean…) Eva, the protagonist. UHHH I hate even thinking about this book!

2. Red Scarf Girl by Ji-Li Jiang

This book has been out for a while, and I ended up reading it for school. The fact that I read it in school has NOTHING to do with my opinion of it. In fact, the other 2 books I’ve read for school have been amazing! These include Night and Stargirl! I really didn’t like this book because the story line was not very good. Once the book ended up picking up the pace, there were only 20 pages left! I still had a lot of un-answered questions, and I was very upset about it.

3. The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige

Don’t get me wrong, I love Danielle Paige and Dorothy Must Die, but this book was not very good. I still gave it a decent rating (3/5 stars), but it was very boring and didn’t really answer any questions I had about the previous book. I hope the 3 one that comes out in early spring really picks up and I end up loving it!

Those were my most disappointing books of 2015. Did you have any? Comment below or tweet me @readingreadingreading and we can discuss!

Anyways, I received a wonderful email from WordPress about my stats for this year, and thought that I would take a chill blog day by sharing it with you! It’s so cute and I love how they made it this year!

Enjoy it by scrolling down and clicking on the link below!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,000 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.
