My 2015 reading summary is on an infographic this year. I decided to make an infographic, because one of my goals with my blog is to learn new technologies for my blog. This is the first infographic I’ve made and it was fun and quite easy to make using the Piktochart site. There are tutorials and templates which make it quite easy and they even offer to chat with you and help you if you need it. The hardest part was trying to decide what information to include and then how to show it. I hope to make more infographics in the future.
Did the infographic work?
According to Wikipedia, “Information Graphics or Infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly.” What do you think? Was the infographic a success?
One thing I worry about making an infographic like this is whether the graphic is too big and makes the page load slowly. Please do let me know if the page seems to load slowly on your computer.
Have you ever made infographics for your blog? What do you think–are they worth creating?
I read 88 books or novellas in 2013–way down from my 2012 total (118 books). I think the main reason for this is that I started my blog which took quite a bit of my reading time. I would like to’ve read at least 100 books which I’ve done for the last several years, but I’m enjoying blogging so I’m going to accept my reading speed plus I read some great books! When I’m reading a book I love I sometimes so down my reading so I can enjoy the happiness and joy of a great book!
Over half the books I read (60 books or 68%) were fantasy or science fiction. This includes paranormal and fantasy romance as well as young adult fantasies and science fiction. Most of the books I read were fantasies–either urban fantasies or just fantasies.
In 2012, I read many more historical romances than fantasies. This year I read 29 romances–including contemporary romance, historical romance and paranormal and fantasy romance. Most of the novellas I read were romances.

Without further ado…in the order I read the books…
I could continue with a number of other books…I had a great reading year! The above books aren’t always my highest rated books, but these are books which stayed with me through the year. Sometimes after I read a book I can’t even remember exactly what it was about by the next week! The above books are books are really remember and enjoy remembering…lol…not books I hated so much I remember them.
All my favorites are fantasy/science fiction. I’m loving fantasy and don’t see that changing anytime soon!
