Goodreads Year in Review


Whew! 2017 was a BIG reading year for me. I read a little over 100 books which I can’t say that I’ve done in a long time (if ever). It’s nice to use Goodread’s Year in Review feature to see a summary of what I’ve read this year! Here’s some facts about my reading year (all images are from Goodreads):

gr 1

One of my favorite features of the Goodreads Year in Review is seeing how many pages I read.  If I say there are about 250 words per page that means I read about 9,308,500 words in books alone this year. It’s crazy to think how many other words I read per day!

gr 2

I knew for sure that Winter would be the longest book I read this year. Even though I think there were some parts that could have been edited out, I still enjoyed getting more time with some of my favorite characters!

gr 3

I’m actually surprised that The Selection is the most popular book I read this year. I know that a lot of people have read it through blogging, but I wouldn’t have guessed it would have been the most popular book I read this year!

gr 5

I’m not too surprised that this book was the highest rated for me on Goodreads. This series has a loyal following and many people consider this their favorite book in the series (myself included!).

gr 4

For 107 books, I don’t think it’s bad that my average is around 4 stars. I think I’ve gotten better at DNF’ing books that don’t really interest me which probably made my number of one and two star reviews go down.

gr 6

This was one of the first books I read this year and the first I reviewed! It seems like I read this book way longer than a year ago. I’m excited to see what book I finish first this year!
