Happy New Year – and my 2017 Reading List/Stats

Standard

 

Happy New Year! Starting 2018 with a fresh reading slate. There are SO many books left on my TBR pile(s), and so many books coming out in 2018 that I’m excited to read.

2017 by the numbers: (numbers may not add up since I included books I didn’t recommend on my sidebar list, and doubled up on some categories like biography and picture book or mg and graphic novel)

114 books read

44 YA

34 MG/Chapter Books

25 PB

9 adult fiction

9 nonfiction/biography/memoir

4 graphic novels

I had a goal of reading 100 books so I surpassed that. I also wanted to read books from genres I don’t normally read – I added graphic novels. (Thanks to Gene Luen Yang for his Reading Without Walls challenge). Here’s m fourth quarter reading list. Links below for the rest of my reading lists. Side bar of my books read/recommended from 2017 will remain up for another couple of days.
