2016 Recap

AHHH. How is it already 2017??? (Gross.) I made two major goals in 2016 again: finish 40 books and check off all 24 challenges as part of Book Riot’s #ReadHarder campaign – and, well, I failed, AGAIN. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (You can see my actual goals here.)

If you’re interested, here’s how my stats broke down:

#ReadHarder

Book Riot introduced their #ReadHarder challenge in 2015 and I loved the idea. It got me to actually think about what book I was reading, and, in some cases, gave me that extra nudge to read something that was already in my tbr pile. I went through all the challenges and made a list to help guide my reading… but again decided to bypass that list and start reading books just because I wanted to read them. I also started a food memoir (Fresh off the Boat) and a book about religion (The God Delusion) – but didn’t find them interesting enough to finish – and couldn’t find anything on my tbr list that was 100 pages or less (although Adulthood Is a Myth came close).

I read 9 books, or 38% of my goal of 24.
