2017 Reading Summary

In 2017, I set out to read 84 books. This equates to 7 books a month, something that felt like a lofty goal when I set it. I somehow surpassed this goal, partially thanks to the help of starting a few podcasts in 2017. My goal in 2018 is to expand my non-fiction, short story, and poetry readings. And maybe a drama or two.

Below I break down everything I read! If you have any questions about any books read, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

One thought on “2017 Reading Summary

  1. Meddling Kids was one of my faves in 2017 as well! (I actually reviewed it because I found it so interesting). I’m really hoping Edgar Cantero writes more stories for the Blyton Summer Detective Club.
