What I read in 2015

At the beginning of the year, I joined the Goodreads reading challenge and set a goal of 100 books. If I had known how busy I was going to be this year, I wouldn't have. :-) However, as of yesterday, I somehow managed to finish my 100th book of 2015!

The ratings for the books I read this year broke down as follows:
  • 5 stars - 25 books
  • 4 stars - 44 books
  • 3 stars - 29 books
  • 2 stars - 2 book
This comes out to an average rating of 3.92 stars per book.

Of the 100 books that I read, 47 were indie published, which is almost half of all books read in 2015 and more than I read last year.

The ratings for the indie books came out to be:
  • 5 stars - 11 books
  • 4 stars - 25 books
  • 3 stars - 11 books
As you can see, the average rating for the indie books (4.0) slightly beat out the rating for all books. That's right, the indie books I read this year were collectively better than the traditionally published ones! Furthermore, four of them made my list of the top ten books of the year, which is the highest representation among indie books since I started keeping track.

Next week, I'll list my top ten favorite books read in 2015. Stay tuned!
