A Year in Review // ’17 Review

Well, I finally did this. Yes, it’s March, but who really cares, I don’t.

I read* 109 books, which rounds up to grand 29,989 page. That’s almost 30,000 pages which is pretty incredible.

*- when I saw read, this includes audiobooks

I read a lot of YA fantasy, contemporary, literary fiction & memoirs this year, and overall I’m pretty content.

The longest book I read was  It by Stephen King at 1,166 pages

The shortest book I read was Migrating Bird by Elif Shafak at 20 pages.

My average rating was a whopping 3.7 ★’s which isn’t that bad. It could be worse.

Other highlights include the fact that I finally read a Stephan King, I finished some series, and I discovered some really incredible books. I also read some shit books but were not going to talk about that.
