2017 Wrap-Up

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).

August 2017 Wrap-Up

August is the first month after YALC, which means i’m naturally more likely to want to read and i can pick any book from my book shelf without worrying if that author is attending YALC or not and i want to get the book signed. So, i’ve had a pretty good reading month. It’s been like walking in to a book shop and pulling whatever i wanted off the shelves, but in my own home, it’s a whole sense of freedom i forget existed (Dramatic? Probably not).
