6th Annual End Of The Year Survey -- 2015 Edition!

I'm usually always so late when it comes to bookish things whether is a meme, a tag, or you know anything, so I was a bit lost when a bunch of surveys flooded my bloglovin and twitter timeline. I had no clue who was hosting it, (the lovely Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner btw) neither did I even think I would be non-lazy enough to actually answer all the questions, but after being intrigued and amused by some of the answers I've seen, I decided to say fuck it, and get busy sharing my 2015 in books.
