December Wrap Up/End of Year Wrap Up

My last wrap up of 2017! It’s been a great reading year, I’ve read a lot of books (368 books) and, more importantly, I’ve read a lot of books I’ve really enjoyed. I set myself a secondary goal of 365 books, which I did actually manage to complete, mostly by reading about twenty books in the last ten days. I got a lot of new books for Christmas (three of which I read on Boxing Day) so I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in to those.

I definitely did not read as much during November as I did during October. To be fair, I don’t think I could have ever read as much during November as I did during October.

September Wrap Up

July Wrap Up

If you ever fall into a reading slump, do two 12-14 hour train journeys on your own and you’ll read out of sheer boredom if nothing else. That said, I read some really good books this month and some that have been on my TBR for a very long time. It was a good reading month, in terms of both quality and quantity. The readathons I took part in were really fun and I’m glad I did them (even if they all seemed to overlap).
