  1. I am hoping to read The Humans and Gone Girl within the next month so I'm really glad to see that you gave them pretty high star ratings!

  2. This post is great, I am on the lookout for some new books so read so i'll be adding some of these to my reading list. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought Eleanor and Park was just "okay". Everyone raved about it and I just didn't get why.

  3. I love the idea of taking a photo of each book you read - it might help me keep track of my 100 books in 2015 goal!

  4. What a brilliant collection of books, there are so many that I really must get around to reading this year! I typed my collection of what I read in 2014 the other day, so I sympathise with how long the links must have taken to put in, haha! I hope you have a wonderful new year, lovely.

  8. I really didn't read enough last year. I need to start reading on my lunch break instead of fussing about with my phone xx

  9. What we Talk About When We Talk About Love... so good. The White Album, I read that a long, long time ago. I got to Didion via Lloyd Cole and The Commotions and a track off Rattlesnakes. I love the book and the LP
