My Year in Books 2017

My Year in Books 2017

Time for the yearly book parade! Here is my 2017 Year in Books from goodreads. The summary:

  • 88 books
  • 21,633 pages
  • Average length 246 pages

This year I set my goal at 40 books, but ended up reading 88. I did "cheat" a bit because most of what I read was Bleach, but I also read a number of excellent novels and tech books.

I started reading A Game of Thrones series this year and it has lived up to its reputation as a must read. As great as the books are, there's only one character I like. There are plenty I hope they don't die, but it's hard to imagine a world more full of cut-throat fiends. I only have a couple more to go, but I'm excited to see what direction the story goes (I haven't watched the HBO version).

I should really give a larger range of ratings to my books. I research almost everything I read and I will stop reading books I don't enjoy, but my average rating is 4.7 and that's definitely too high.

If you would like to see what I read, you can email me or send me a goodreads friend request, this is me.
