Two years ago, when I started my Monthly Goals and one of the very first ones was to read 2 books a month…well, that was one of THE BEST things I’ve ever done for myself! And bonus…I have looooooved sharing books with YOU! Thank you so much for being a part of this with me!
Okay, first up, December’s books and then I’ll recap my books for the year…all 63 of them!
I wrapped up 2015 by reading Simply Tuesday by Emily P. Freeman. I love these types of books. This book was uplifting and encouraging. If you’re a lady buzzing through life so fast that you feel like you’re missing things, if you live with mom guilt about being too busy, if you just need someone to encourage you to slow down and appreciate the little things…then this book’s for you.
So, that was December!
Now, I wish I could go back and revisit all 63 books from 2015…but, since that would take forever and be the longest blog post in history, I’ll just hit some highlights below…
…I read eight Elin Hilderbrand novels this year and loved them. Her writing is so easy, her characters are so lovable…these are just good, simple reads. The only two books that you need to read in order are Winter Street and then Winter Stroll. The rest of the books are independent and can be read in any order…but Winters Stroll is the sequel to Winter Street, so make sure you read them in that order.
The novel that surprised me the most this year was…
That wraps up my books for 2015! I cannot wait to see what we read together in 2016! As always, thoughts, opinions, book suggestions and recommendations are coveted in the comment section below.
Don’t forget! You can keep up with me on Goodreads here.

It’s Monday…so, I’m Meal Planning…
And one last thing, since my kiddos are off for the next two weeks, I will be blogging a little more sporadically. I’ll be here some, but then on other days, I won’t. Things will be a little inconsistent until the week of January 4…which also happens to be Ashby’s Gotcha Day :). Enjoy your Monday!
