This year I had the pleasure to read 134 Jane Austen Fan Fiction titles. Many of them were five-star reads for me and most were books I’d gladly read again. I also had the pleasure to read about 50 Jane Austen Fan Fiction titles that were published in 2015. Therefore, I thought it would be fun to create a Just Jane 1813 Reviewer’s Favorite List for 2015 to share with my readers, and include links to Amazon and Goodreads, where titles and reviews are readily available for readers.
I also thought it would be fun to share some of the features offered on Goodreads to help readers reflect upon their past year of reading. These features are available at the bottom left-hand side of the Goodreads screen when you go to the page that says My Books at the top. The page here is my very own “My Books” page on GR, where you can explore many neat features. You can click on the banner at the top and it will generate a special reading page for 2015, which will reflect everything you read and recorded on GR this year.
Below is a shelf cloud, which takes the names of your bookshelves and changes the sizes of the text based on the number of books you’ve read on that shelf. I’ve rearranged many of my shelves to coordinate with my blog’s JAFF categories.
This feature, found under stats on the bottom left-hand side, shows you an overview of your reading habits from the past year, and sorts your books by their ratings, shows you a pie chart based on your reading shelf habits and tells you what the longest book was that you read this year. It also can be reconfigured to show different stats.
There were a few ways I thought about approaching the following list of Just Jane 1813 Reviewer’s Favorites, but when it came down to it, I wanted to name my favorite JAFF reads that were published this year, to provide my readers with a comprehensive list of JAFF to enjoy. I also wanted to recognize the work done by these wonderful JAFF writers. With several hundreds of JAFF books published in 2015, I worked hard to comb through lists, ratings, and reviews to bring you what I believe, are the most enjoyable and well-written reads of 2015. I’ve also read every one of these books at least once, so I proudly declare them as my favorite JAFF reads of 2015!
I have tried to format this post so that everything appears centered, but different mobile devices may cause this post to look different from my intended vision.
