How was your year of reading?


  1. Happy New Year! I managed to read 95 books - last year 105, but I'm still pretty satisfied :-) And I have just put The Night Rainbow on my TBR!

  2. My God, you read so much! I wish I will start reading more and make time for it! www.georgyana.me

  3. Nice stats! In 2015, when I first participated in the Goodreads Reading Challenge I managed to read 63 books (which was SO. GOOD., especially considering the fact that I hadn't read much fiction since I started uni in 2010), but this year I read 34 books. May and October were such busy months that I didn't read one single book. Anyhow, I decided to put my 2017 Reading Challenge to just 12 books - no pressure for me in 2017, haha! On the other hand, while I'm not so happy about not completing last year's challenge, I'm happy with the books I read. They were all books that I was longing to read for a long time - beautiful classics, old favorites ... And, in the end, that's what it is all about, right?

    1. I think that's the best attitude one can have! :D Best of luck on your reading in 2017, and hopefully, all the books you read will be as good as the ones last year! :)
