Taylor’s Yearly Wrap Up – 2015

So 2015 has been an amazing year for me in more ways than one. And a big part of my year has been books. Buying books, reading books, blogging about books. This has been my biggest year for books ever. I’ve had to buy three new book cases to fit my allnew books that I’ve acquired this year. I’ve read 259 books this year, which is so much more than I thought I could read. I’ve read so many amazing books this year and made so many amazing friends though book related social media. Stephanie and I started this blog in February and I couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who’s supported us this year. It’s been amazing and I know next year will be even better.
