According to Goodreads, I completed 76 books this year.
15 were young adult or middle grade books. 9 were children's books. My favorites were the Zooey and Sassafras series by Asia Citro, The Inquisitor's Tale by Adam Gidwitz, and all-time favorite young adult book this year was The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.
For classics I read To Kill a Mockingbird , The Handmaid's Tale, and Murder on the Orient Express.
I read a lot of horror around September and October; 10, with The Last Days of Jack Sparks being my favorite horror read of the year.
Shortest book: Zooey and Sassafras at 96 pages.
Longest book: It by Stephen King at 1478 pages! It took me over 4 months to read that one!
I read a lot more this year! But I found I didn't record as much at the beginning. I really started hitting Goodreads and blogging hard after G started school in September and have been making this my end of the year goals.
Top 5 books of the year:
I guess I needed to share the pain with others this year since I read a lot of memoirs about hard experiences, grief, and pain.
I have a couple of reading challenges this year plus the Classics challenge. I only read 3 out of 10 this year so I need to crank it up for 2018! I may join one more to help me read the books I own!
Here's to another great reading year!
