My Year in Books 2015

Today I am sharing with you all the books I read. But first some stats!

This year I read 75 books for the very first time.
This year I also re-read 12 books.
This year I read 28 of those books from the library.

In total, I read 87 books in the year of 2015.

I will go from least stars to the full 5 star ratings!

First is no ratings, these are either books that I felt uncomfortable about rating or I just could never figure out where I stood with it OR I just never finished and plan to re-read it later on.
