Fictional Friday: 70 Books I Read in 2017

Here comes one of the most important posts of the year, the reading wrap up of the entire year! 2017 for me was pretty great, considering I read 70 books and so many of those books were actually pretty darn good. I did have a few misses but not the worst year, considering I DNF’d only two books, one less than last year. There are a lot of YA romance novels and romance novels in this list because I was pushing myself to finish my reading challenge with easy reads all year. But without any further ado, find out which books I loved, which ones I didn’t and which I felt neutral about!

Reading Wrap Up: May

Images taken from my personal bookstagram account

Here we are, almost at the midpoint of 2017, and I’m enjoying reading just as much as I did at the beginning of the year. Not to jinx it, but I’ve successfully avoided reading slumps and I’m ahead of my challenge which means I can now pick up heavier books. That being said, I do love an occasional adult romance novel these days, so there will be few of them mentioned here and in the future. Also, for this month I wanted to shake things up a bit and I added visuals to my post. It took me ages! Like, honestly, it took me less time to actually write the reviews than to pick the images to accompany each book! That being said, here is my newly refreshed reading wrap up of all the books I read in May.

Commercial Break #76

Since nothing important has happened in these past few weeks, I again skipped a week and bringing you a recap of the past two weeks. Nothing has happened really, but then again, nothing ever really happens with my life these days.

Oh, the health care system is so much fun.

Top Ten Tuesday: Things That Make Me Instantly Pick Up a Book

When I started reading more a few years ago, I didn’t know I had any specific tastes for books.

So I kept reading and I’m still reading and part of me knows that I do have things that I gravitate towards. May it be genre related, may it be plot-point related, or a word-of-mouth situation – I now have these things that instantly make me pick up that specific book. I’m hereby sharing all of my instantly want to read situations.

Reading Wrap Up: November

november-wrap-upIn the month of November I met my 2016 reading challenge – I’ve read 60 books, and by now I’ve hit 64 books. Only 2 of the books I’ve added into my reading challenge this year have been DNF’s (Did Not Finish), which I think is pretty good. Come to think of it, I rarely put books down, but when I do, I have many reasons to do so. But that being said, here are the books I read in the month of November, including one DNF, because I couldn’t be bothered to waste more time on it.
