Quotes of the Week: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

I love quotes from books. They remind me of how I felt when I first read those books and makes me want to read them again. Over the past few years I’ve read quite a lot of books and this is my way of holding on to them – by having a collection of their quotes. So every week I’ll chose a book and I’ll post all my favorite quotes from it. Sometimes I may also post some random quotes I like or just quotes from authors and such. I really hope you enjoy them. Let me know down below what you think of this.

My Reading More Diversely Jar / My Ultimate TBR Jar

For the last couple of  years it has been quite a trend to make TBR (to-be-read) lists and jars in the book community. I had a list for 2015 and was successful in completing most of them. However, this year i didn’t want to put pressure on myself and just wanted to take my time with the books i read. I wanted to discover stories that stayed with me and made me glad that i read them. But underneathall that there was still this huge list of books that i had always wanted to read. There were series i wanted to start and series i needed to complete. There were genres that i had not read anything from and wanted to try them.

So from all this came my ultimate tbr jar.

My 2015 Reading Review

2015 was a pretty good reading year for me. I read 145 books (I know! Amazing, right?) which were mostly contemporaries. Other than that, I read quite a lot of series- 4 of them Fantasy, few Children and Non-Fiction books and 8 Classics.

I discovered many great authors and i hope to do more of that this year. I also read 5 poems. All of them were for school but i really enjoyed them.

Overall, it was a very satisfactory year. Here are 5 books and series that i loved the most in this year.
