I haven’t quite finished reviewing all the books from 2017, but I’d still like to look back and see how I did with my reading life this past year. Let’s start with my Goodreads totals. I read 98 novels, and 128 books total, when you factor in all the graphic novels and novellas. That stacked up to 39,744 pages, slightly less than last year but still respectable.
Rereading Challenge: I got four books reread in the Outlander series. I’ve previously read six of the eight currently published books in the series so I’ve still got some work to do. I think I’ll try to finish the series this year.
Finish the Series Challenge: I finished five series, and put a dent in several others that have been lingering for a while. I’ll count that as a success.
Reading the Alphabet Challenge: I missed four categories this year, which is probably the worst I’ve done in this challenge in a while. I did manage to get at least one book in each letter, but I’m disappointed I didn’t finish the alphabet this year.
Overall, I am happy with the reading challenges I set for myself and plan to repeat them in 2018. I’ve still got a lot of series that I’d like to finish, and I didn’t finish rereading the Outlander series yet, so I’m just keeping last year’s challenges for 2018.
