2017 in Review

2017 is over. I honestly don't know where this year has gone. I read a whopping 184 books this year (don't ask me how because I have no idea). I feel like I've branched out a little bit, reading more comics and nonfiction and even middle grade than before. I am going to break up my favorite books of the year into categories, because there are a lot and hopefully keep it narrowed down.





Some rambles: Although I did not read as much nonfiction as I would have liked (only 39 of the 184), what I did read was amazing. That was actually the hardest category to narrow down. I didn't add categories for children's or poetry, but those are some things I would like to try and read more of in 2018. I don't have many reading goals for 2018, other than diversifying what I read. I want to read widely in every category, instead of just the few I gravitate towards. I'm not going to pick a top book of 2017, because honestly how can I decide??

Other favorites




And that is it for 2017! And sadly, also for this blog. I know you're probably like "didn't you quit another time too? Obviously that didn't work out". Yes, I did, but this time is (probably) for real. Not to worry! My other social medias (tumblr, instagram, twitter) will stay exactly the same, and you can still keep up with everything I read over on Goodreads

What were your favorite for 2017? Hope everyone has a lovely and joyous new year.

December Wrap Up

Well, another month over. I wasn't sure about doing a December wrap up since I have my year wrap up posting tomorrow, but decided to go ahead and do one.

Notable Favorites: Courage is Contagious, Wonder Woman

TV: I watched the latest season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which is one of those shows that I know is super dumb and yet I still keep watching. Also started Mindhunter and I'm not finished yet but I'm already obsessed.
Movies: I saw The Greatest Showman, and honestly did not have high hopes but I ended up LOVING it.
Music: And I have basically only listened to the soundtrack for The Greatest Showman since coming out of the theater. No shame.
