MEME: Six in Six

Now this is a fun idea: choose six categories, choose six books you've read in the first half of 2015 that fit in those six categories, and list! I've been looking over the books I've read so far and been remembering the good and the bad. What a fun way to contemplate, analyze, and just remember our reading patterns. This meme comes originally from Jo over @ The Book Jotter. But I first read of it here @ Helen's She Reads Novels. So here we go!!

Well, that's my six in six for this year! Will you be posting yours?


  1. Thanks for joining in. Some new ones for me to investigate.

    1. Thanks for the original meme (at least as far as I know). It was to look back over my read books this year, this way. :)

  2. Great categories! I can see some titles that I've read and enjoyed, and some that I'm looking forward to reading. I love your list of historical romances that are more than just fluff - I'll have to try some of those!

    1. Thanks! It was putting this together. I love HRs that include either dark matter or serious content. While one of the books in that category could be borderline fluff if you look @ it a certain way, but it deals with body image issues that I liked. But I liked that they explored ideas like revolution, misogyny, domestic abuse, neurological lifetime conditions, and racism. Gotta love when that balances out the sweet, sweet romance. :)

  3. I like your selection of categories Sarah, especially historical romances, WWII books and biographical fiction, there are lots of titles here for me to find out more about.

    1. Thanks! It was fun compiling this list, seeing what I read when and how my mood in regards to what to read changed. Enjoy any titles you might choose. They were all great. :)
