Books read for the second half of the year 2015

Wow, time passes by in a blink of eye! It's first day of year 2016 now! Happy New Year everyone! :)

Happy New Year 2016 (Pic source:

Many of you have come out with year 2016 resolutions, haven't you? Hope reading was among your resolution list lah! ^^

Check out my reading list back in Jan-Jun 2014, Jul-Dec 2014, and Jan-Jun 2015

I spent the second half of my last year mostly traveling around, meeting up, and spending my precious life's time with dear family members and lovely friends all around the place and ended up reading less books. But no regret though! Not at all! ;)

Reading is passion! :D

Anyway, it was not the quantity of the book that I emphasized when it came to read, but it was more into answering my calling, my passion. I just loved to quench my curiosity about the content behind the title and beautiful picture that decorating the cover of the book, or wondered myself on what would this author write in his or her next book :)

So, please find the list of books I read during the second half of the year 2015 as per follow:

I hope many of you keep up your reading passion in your life, not only for enjoyment, but also for learning new things or living other people's lives, and so on. Wish you all a wonderful and great new year!!!

P.S. I listed the books I read before as I am getting forgetful lately. E.g. I borrowed and read the book that I'd read before and only realized when it came almost to the end part, like suddenly I felt reading something familiar before... Lol! Perhaps as the year goes by, age increases, and my memory has faded away... ;P Nevertheless, it won't stop me from continuing my passion lah!! Hope you too! ;)
