Reading Jar 2016!

So starting in 2015, I’ve kept a reading jar each year of what books I’ve read, the date I finished them on (not necessarily when I started them) and a rating out of five.

I didn’t have my blog in 2015, but here’s a photo of that reading jar anyway:


And here’s my 2016 one!


So a normal piece of paper in here looks like this:


This year I read 27 books (compared to last year’s 50-something, that doesn’t feel like a lot!) but I am halfway through a lot of others that are scattered around my room.

Anyway, onto my read books of 2016!

I’ve also read The Great Gatsby and Othello too, but I can’t remember when I finished them, so that takes my total up to 29!

Happy New Year!
