Details:

Books read jives with what I expected from my Goodreads challenge (which always skews higher because I count picture books I read for work).

Here’s the breakdown for the ARCs I received:

  • Requested: 15
  • Amazon Vine: 15
  • Not requested: 19

I am thrilled with these numbers. One of my goals for the year was to request fewer books. I still have a substantive pile of ARCs to read and review from publishers but it feels very manageable and I feel like I’m in charge of my to read list instead of the other way around.

I also bought slightly fewer books than last year and hope to continue to be even more mindful about purchases (which was an overarching goal I had for the year). I’m not entirely sure I succeeded there but I made progress and that’s kind of the same thing.

So that’s my year in reading according to the blog. You can also see my year in books on Goodreads. And check out my Top Ten list for 2017.
