2017 was a great reading year. Every year Goodreads reminds me of my achievements by showing me the always entertaining list of facts about the books I read that year. I thought I should share some of it with you, since I’m a big lover of facts and lists.
I read a total amount of 66 books which was a total of 19230 pages. 2016 was the second year of joining the Goodreads challenge, picking a goal of 12 books to read that year (one a month). I exceeded that by reading 35 books, and thought that was a good goal to achieve in 2017. Never would I have expected to achieve this, being in my last year of university and starting a job with a lot of hours. Then reading became something I would do about every day, which caused me to finish book after book.
I also feel like this year was a good transition year in terms of reading. This year was all about reading everything I could get my hands on. I still feel like that and still have so much to read, but I want to find a more organised way to do it. You can read more about that in my post about my bookish resolutions of 2018.
The shortest book I read this year was Environmentally Friendly by Elias Zanbaka (3/5 stars) with 19 pages. This book was provided to me by the author. The biggest book I read was IT by Stephen King (5/5 stars) with an amount of 1116 pages. I ended up loving this book, even though it was terrifying. The average amount of pages per book was 291 pages and the average rating was a 4.1. That means a decent amount of good books that I read. Let’s try and keep it that way for next year.
I wish everyone a great 2018 with lots of reading! Happy new year!
