6. A 2016 Release You’ve Already Read & Recommend To Everyone:


  1. Ooh '89 Walls has been on my kindle for a bit but I haven't got to it yet! And I haven't even heard of Your Voice Is All I Hear! Great year in books!

    My 2015 Survey!

    1. You really should read '89 Walls! It is such a great book and I learnt a ton of American History too! Your Voice Is All I Hear is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read.

  2. I loved reading your survey because I haven't heard of most of the books, so you've given me some new titles to check out! I think my favourite question in each survey that I've read so far this year is the "best book of 2015" because each person's is so different, and I've already added some awesome new books to my teetering TBR pile -- tee hee! Here's to another great year of reading and blogging =)

    1. I'm glad I've given you some new titles. Good luck with you TBR haha! I know mine is increasing quite a bit with these surveys. So many great books being recommended!
