That's A Wrap

That’s A Wrap – A Year In Review 2017

It’s hard to believe that the year is just about to come to a close! I started my blog last February, so my blog is just weeks away from its first birthday. I’m already brainstorming how to celebrate! Stay tuned…

This has been a fantastic year! Starting my blog has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have read many new-to-me authors and broke my previous record of books read in a year. I had no idea how many wonderful readers, bloggers, and authors I would connect with all over the world. I cannot tell you how much each and every one of you mean to me. As a nearly empty nester I was trying to find myself and wondered what in the world I was going to do in this next phase of my life. I am very happy to say I have found it!

Goodreads Recap….

  • I surpassed my reading goal of 60 and read 72 books this year.
  • I read 25,466 pages.
  • Shortest book – The Stars Are Fire by Anita Shreve (256 pages).
  • Longest book – Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King (702 pages).

  1. I need to read Sleeping Beauties this year! I hope to read all of the Neil Gaiman and Stephen King books I own so we’ll see. It sounds so good! Book blogging is so much fun – I started mine 9 years ago and still love it! Good luck in 2018!
