Happy New Year everyone! I am so excited for all the books waiting to be read this coming year, but first I thought I’d share what I read in 2017.
I BARELY reached my goal to read 50 books (seriously, I made it with 15 minutes to spare before midnight).
Out of 50, 29 of the books I read were novels and 16 were non-fiction. I also read 1 book of short stories, 2 books of poetry, and 1 graphic novel.
43 of the books were books I read for the first time, and 7 were rereads (and actually I reread 2 books twice each–what can I say, I love Harry Potter that much).
My favorite statistic is that 36 of the books I read were by female authors (14 by male). I made a reading resolution for this year to read more books by women after I noticed that last year the majority of the books I read were by men, and I’m so thankful for all of the wonderful books and authors that I discovered this year as a result of it.
I’ve also shared my top 5 favorite reads of 2017 in both fiction and non-fiction. Click on the images below to find out what I chose:
