The 2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge | My Year in Books

The 2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge | My Year in BooksI’ve mentioned before that I’m a Goodreads lover, right? Why Goodreads? Because you can track the books you’ve read, currently reading, divide them up into lists (I love lists), read reviews, learn the books history, about the author, the genre, number of pages, and everything in between. It’s pretty freaking cool — oh and did I mention that it’s F R E E ? Sign up right now (you can thank me later) and then add me as a friend!

The absolute best part about Goodreads, is their annual Reading Challenge. And of course, at the end of the year you can see your stats — who doesn’t love stats?

2016 Year in Books

I’m thrilled to share with you some of my favorites, some no-no’s, and the books I recommend you add to your list for the upcoming year. Let’s dive in!

This year, I read a total of SIXTY books! Yes, 60! I’m pretty proud of myself, not going to lie. And in that mix, I read some wonderful, beautiful books that I still think about, and others that fell short of my hopes.

And I guess it’s now time to come up with a 2017 goal…  After giving it much thought, I’m going to stick with this years completed 60, and see if I’m able to do that. But I don’t like loosing, even to myself, so challenge accepted! Also, I need all the recommendations I can get!

How many books are you pledging to read in 2017? What were some of your favorites this year?

  • I am such a good reads fan too (just sent you a friend request!) and the reading challenge is the number one reason. Each year I have upped my reading goal by 5 books and I can’t wait to see what number I cap off at…hopefully it increases forever!

    • That’s an awesome goal! I really love that! I’m following you now as well, I love the goodreads challenge, I’m all about those stats.

  • I love goodreads too! It’s one of my favourite apps for sure. 2016 was my best reading year since joining. Unfortunately, I don’t foresee that this year will be even better since I had a baby in December and I’m not sure how much reading I can realistically get done with two kids now 😉 My aim is 24 books so that I don’t feel too overwhelmed!

    • Congratulations on the new baby!! I think 24 is a great goal, especially with two littles ones! I’m impressed!
