Sometimes I feel like I never finish a single book, and there are just piles of unfinished books all over the house…
It’s true. There are piles of books in my room and the living room and the school room, full of books I have started and not yet finished reading. Le sigh.
But, I have finished a few books. Maybe even more than a few! I’m joining the party with Haley at Carrots for Michaelmas and listing out all I did read this year. Maybe I’ll be so bold as to share what I plan to read for next year, too!

Now…what should I read in 2015? Already on my list are some books from my wish list, as well as finishing what I started this year and didn’t yet finish.

I’m considering some Jane Austen…any suggestions on which I should begin with? I think I read Emma in high school, but my memory could be fooling me. Also, any light reads that I can enjoy but not spend forever reading? Clearly my list needs some rounding-out with some non-fiction.
What are *you* reading next year? What was your favorite read this year?
