2016: A Year in Review


2016 is FINALLY over. While this year was absolutely horrible in terms of the real world, it was the best reading year I’ve ever had in my life. I read 110 books, and for the first time in four years I’ve managed to finish the #HarryChristmastoYou readathon (I’m still technically reading Deathly Hallows, but I will finish it today if it kills me).

Reading Statistics: 

Total Books: 110

Rereads: 7 (Harry Potter books)

Longest book: A Storm of Swords by George RR Martin (1177 pages)

Shortest book: After the One by Kiera Cass (11 pages)

5 Star books: 46

4 Star Books: 36

3 Star Books: 19

2 Star Books: 9

1 Star books: 0 (this is such a huge accomplishment for me to not have read any books in a full year that I HATED enough to give 1 star)

The Books:
