This year I set my Goodreads goal at 50 books, and I surpassed that goal by reading 72!  For this post I consulted my Goodreads Year In Books, I love how Goodreads breaks things down.

  1. I’m a big fan of Goodreads’s breakdown of books read throughout the year. Surpassing your goal by over twenty book is an amazing accomplishment, great job! And so many five star reads, Ashley, that means you must have had a stellar reading year. I hope your 2017 year in books is just as amazing if not more!

  2. I didn’t realize you’d read Life Unaware. I loved that book!! I keep meaning to read The Serefina series and just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Glad you had such a good reading year!

  3. I absolutely ate up The Selection series this year too. It’s another series that I would have never picked up if I hadn’t seen it in the blogging community.

    Congrats on exceeding your goal! I can’t wait to see what you read next year. Happy New Year’s Eve!

  4. It looks like you had a really good year, judging from your five-star reads! A number of these are still on my TBR, including the Fantastic Beasts screenplay and JKR’s Pottermore stories.
