It’s truly been one incredible year of reading! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed discussing reviews, learning about new authors and books, making new friends, and increasing my TBR up to 13,700! I thought it would be good to look back at some of the books I’ve read this year by doing this Year in Review for 2017!
Starting this blog was a pretty good decision for me and I’ve made some wonderful friendships and met some incredible authors too. I enjoy sharing my reviews in the blogging world and on Goodreads.
This year I’ve completed:
Book Reviews: I counted roughly 390 reviews that I wrote in 2017. I don’t have all of them added here on the blog, but they can be found on Goodreads.
Shortest book= Toby – by Margaret Wild
Longest Book= A Little Life – by Hanya Yanagihara
I read 52,845 pages across 421 books
This year I’ve read 421 books after setting my Goodread’s challenge to 400. Honestly, a great number of those are children’s books which makes the number seem insanely high! There’s no way I could read that many full-length books in one year!
