2016 was a good year for reading! I read more books in one year than I ever have before, which is pretty freaking awesome! I think I'm allowed to call myself a reading wizard because of that, and if you also surpassed your reading goal then you should, too. I only really hated one book (you can read the review here) and the majority of the novels I picked up this year I enjoyed immensely, which made picking my top 12 books really, really difficult.
Let me know if you read any of these books and what you thought! What were your favorites?
♥ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
♥ The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
♥ P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
♥ This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
♥ I Am Princess Savage by Cherie Priest
♥ Lois Lane: Double Down (Lois Lane #2) by Gwenda Bond
♥ A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
♥ Madly (The Potion Diaries #1) by Amy Alward (and the second book too!)
♥ Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
♥ Scythe by Neal Shusterman
♥ Junior Hero Blues by J.K. Pendragon
♥ The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1) by Rick Riordan
According to Goodreads, I read 94 books in 2016, but in reality I read 106! Crazy! I've never read over 100 books in a year before. The reason it shows 12 less than I actually read is because I listened to A Series of Unfortunate Events (which I realize now I forgot to review on my blog oops) and I just counted it as one big book.
In 2017, my two reading goals:
1. Read 85 books
2. Read as many of the unread books on my shelves as possible by using this "Read More Books" jar. I'll be picking a new book out of the jar whenever I finish a book. Hopefully this will help me read my TBR shelf! I've already picked the first book of 2017 and it is....Everland by Wendy Spinale!
What's your 2017 reading goal?
