My Year in Review: 2017

So I’ve been seeing these posts everywhere, and I wanted to be cool so I’m jumping on the bandwagon 😀 No but seriously, these posts are very nice because a) you get to relive your whole year and b) your readers can have a quick glance at everything that went down throughout the year. Let’s get right into it, shall we?

I had set my reading goal to 30 books, and I am very happy that I surpassed it. 38 books is pretty good for someone who has only recently started reading, and never went over 30 books in a year. So I’m very happy about that, and I want to keep increasing this number as the years go by ♡

I am generally a fan of big books, and that’s what I tend to read the most. However, this year I took a few literature classes, for which I was required to read a lot of Greek plays. As you might know, plays are rather short in general, so a lot of my 2017 reads are like under 50 pages. Very unusual for me, but I must say I do enjoy a short read from time to time!

Do you see what I mean when I talk about how underhyped The Inevitable Collision of Birdie and Bash is!? God, how is this even possible that only 200-something people rated it on Goodreads? If I could I would give everyone a copy of this book, honestly.

Four stars is quite an awesome average, I’m very happy that I read so many books that I loved. 2017 was a very good reading year for me, and I hope 2018 will be just as good – hopefully even better!
