As mentioned in my Favorite Films of 2014 post, I keep a list of every movie I watch in the course of a year. 2015 was my fifth year doing this, documenting movies watched for a British film class, ones seen over the course of a semester in London, and classics that are whipped out during the holiday season, among others.
Looking over the list of books I read this year, I see a lot of patterns in content. I read a lot of celebrity memoirs, kicking off the year with Tina Fey’s Bossypants, finally picking up Lean In, and finishing 2015 by reading Mindy Kaling’s books in pretty close succession. I read the latest books of old favorite writers and, as always, read a lot of World War II-centric novels. This year I also had an ultimate favorite book, so I’m actually curious to see what may end up on this list as I compile it!
