2017 Wrap-Up

Wrap Up Header

2017 finished over two weeks ago now, and that means it’s time to wrap up what i read in 2017. Without a doubt 2017 has been my most successful reading year to date. I’ve read the most books i’ve ever read in a year and also found some absolutely incredible ones that have stayed with me throughout those twelve months (a post on this to follow).

My challenge for the year was to read fifty-two books. It’s what my Goodreads Challenge was set to, and also just what i wanted to achieve for myself. I felt as though fifty-two was a good, achievable number. Here is the list of what i actually got read from January to December.

I’m really pleased with the amount that i got read this year. It’s the most i’ve read before and i’ve found some of my absolute favourite books from this year alone (there will be a full post on this, i promise).

More importantly, i managed to finish my reading challenge! I set my goal this year to read fifty-two books (one a week) for the year. And although i often didn’t read a book a week and fell a little behind, i managed all fifty-two. I might have finished on the 30th of December, and literally only read fifty-two and not a single page more, i managed to do it!

    1. It just happens that i tend to read more female authors i think. I find myself quite disconnected from male characters sometimes unless their very very well written, and male authors tend to write male characters, so i think i subconsciously avoid that a little bit – Sarah
