2015 was the year everyone wondered why songs that weren’t “Hotline Bling” existed. It was also the year gay marriage was legalized in the US, and Emmy host Andy Samberg gave out his HBO Now password to like five billion humans. Most importantly (or at least, very high up there), 2015 was the year of Very Good Books. Like, especially very good books. I felt like I was never not completely absorbed in a novel.
