My Year In Books Recap

At the beginning of the year I set out to read a total of 50 books. For some people this isn’t very many at all. I see that on Goodreads, a ton of people set out to read 100 or more. For me, this is huge. That’s about a book a week. Holy crap. Half-way through the year I decided to blog about all 50 books I read.

I finished the year off by surpassing my goal and reading 64 books and writing reviews for all of them! I’m insanely proud of myself and extremely thankful to all my readers.

  1. I know what you mean! I set my goal this year to 65 books and hope that, throughout writing my second novel, I will also be able to read this amount of books AND write reviews. I wonder if I am being a bit ambitious, but I suppose time will tell! Good luck with your new challenge!


    • Holy crap! You’re so ambitious, but more power to you. That’s awesome and I totally feel that this year is bringing some awesome books and reading time. Wishing you luck on your challenge! Keep me updated ❤
