Recently Read | 2017 recap

Monday, January 22

Unsurprisingly, 2017 was a good year in books. They helped me escape certain not-so-good aspects of reality and dive into some timely and important topics.

However ... I didn't meet my goal of reading 100 books; I only read 85. I was a little upset about it for a moment or two, but then I realized that meeting an arbitrary number of books read isn't important. It's enjoying the reading that really matters. And although I read a few stinkers, for the most part enjoy them I did.

My favorite reads of the year were:
  • Wires and Nerve, Volume One (Wires and Nerve #1) by Marissa Meyer
  • Geekerella by Ashley Poston
  • Hunted by Megan Spooner
  • The Memory Book by Lara Avery
  • The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis
  • The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
  • A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed
  • Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore
  • Defy the Stars (Constellation #1) by Claudia Gray
You can check out short reviews of these books, and others I read, in my bimonthly Recently Read posts:
