Reading Jar 2017

2017readingjar

Happy New Year!!!

If you’ve been around for a while, you may recall my post this time last year about my reading jar for 2016. If not, do not fret – the idea is very straightforward.

Every book I read in 2017, I wrote down on a slip of paper and put in a jar. The slip usually has the date I finished the book, a star rating and any comments I had about it.

(The comments range from actual critiques of the book to my incessant fangirling. Hey, enthusiasm is enthusiasm, right?)

I didn’t hit my target of 50 this year, instead clocking in at 43. ( I could’ve sworn Goodreads had 44 on it, and that was before I added one in that I’d forgotten. Hmmm.) Hopefully 2018 will prove to be a better year!
