But I have no idea if they read it or not.

I read about half of a AU/Historical Fiction War book this year. It was a really interesting concept and pretty well written. But the book was so long that I just slowly lost interest in reading it. But I still stand by it being a great book, just not exactly for me.

 8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unput-downable book of the year?
Winner's Curse  and Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski get an even tie. I read both books in less than a week.

5. Best moment of bookish/blogging life in 2015?

As of right now, no I did not complete my reading challenge this year. First time since I started doing the Goodreads reading challenge. And I actually am proud of myself for not completing it. It fulfills my other reading challenge of only reading books I actually want to read and not reading a bunch of crap to fill in book numbers.
