A little help from my friends 2015

This challenge is my challenge, for me. If anyone else wants to take part, that makes it more fun, but I'm going to do it.
So here's the challenge:
--In some way, get a list of book suggestions from your friends.
--From those suggestions choose between five and ten books that you will read in 2015.
--Make a list of the books that you will read and a few alternates. (I like some flexibility.)
--Copy the picture above, if you like, and post it on your blog. If you don't blog, join us anyway. Just let us know in the comments what you are reading and when you are done.
--Make a post on your blog where you will keep track of the books for this challenge, and link back to this post.
--Please post a comment below with  link to that blog post. Come back and post again when you've finished. Reviews aren't required but they're always fun!
--No book started before 1/1/2015 counts. Books can be used for other challenges.

I will do 10 again this year.

  1. Have you read Still Life by Louise Penny? I read that one just a couple of weeks ago. It was delightful. A mystery set in small-town Quebec. I am going to read the next one too.

  2. Oops, here's the link. http://ishouldntbedointhis.blogspot.com/2014/12/friends-give-lists-of-good-books-for.html

  3. Did you invent this one? Is there a 2016 picture?

  4. I did. But I didn't do a 2016 edition because I have had trouble getting new suggestions from my friends!
