The Books I Read in 2017

I set out to read more books this year than I did last year, but it was not to be. In 2014 I was shooting for reading 35 books and I ended up reading 42. In 2015 I aimed for reading 50 books and I managed to read 56 books. Last year I thought I could get to 60, but as the year progressed I got really busy and reset my goal to 50 and managed to read 51 books. This year my number was much lower at 25 books, but it's because I spent a lot of my reading time writing my own book! I'm not sad about that, and I still managed to get quite a bit of reading in.

So yeah, hitting 25 books this year all things considered is something I'm happy with. I reread the entire Harry Potter series because my oldest son was. That was fun reading it at the same time as him. I bought him the first book last Christmas and he finished the series before this Christmas. That's a lot of reading! It was so cool to see his love for reading grow this year.

I hope you had a great year of reading! Thanks to the amazing people at Goodreads I have these fun graphics to show off my 2017 reading adventures below. If you're not on Goodreads, why not? It's the best! You can track the books you're reading, have read, and want to read. It's my digital bookshelf for keeping track of all my reading and a great place to read reviews and make lists of books you want to read. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year. Enjoy.
