One of the first posts I ever made on this blog this year was 2016 & Book Goals, where I talked about my bookish resolutions for the new year. I can’t believe it, but 2016 is almost ending and 2017 is right around the corner. I had five goals for 2016:
Read 5 classics
- Read all the books I bought and haven’t read
- Re-Read Harry Potter and Hunger Games Trilogy
Complete my Harry Potter collection Read more books than 2015
Depending on your definition of classics, then I either completed two or three of these resolutions. Unfortunately, I didn’t re-read Harry Potter or The Hunger Games, and I’m convinced I will never be done with my TBR pile.
Meanwhile, according to Goodreads,
- I read 88 books
- I read 22,873 pages
- I read and average of 260 pages per book
- The most popular book I read was Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- The least popular book I read was W.I.T.C.H. The Revealing by Parke Goodwin
- The longest book I read was Blankets by Craig Thompson with over 500 pages
- The shortest book I read was The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
- I give an average rating of 3.8/5
My goal this year was to read 23 books (that was one more book than last year), but with the 88 books (94 books, but Goodreads doesn’t count re-reads) I completed my goal by 383% in progress… If that even makes sense. Although many of them are graphic novels, I still read a lot more books than previous years.
