Of the books I read this year, only 5 were rereads. Those are marked with an asterisk. Considering how much I actually love rereading books, the fact that this number was so low – even lower than last year’s 7- I’m genuinely surprised.

I also continued to work towards my goal of bringing down my total number of “Unread Owned” books. I started the year with 43 and ended with 30. Its not as much progress as I’d like, but since I finished most of the novels, the remaining books are all pieces of series that require short detours in order to complete.

2017 was also the year of e-books for me. I generally prefer paperbacks, but I found it convenient to read 31 of the books either on my phone or tablet. All were borrowed from the local library through the OverDrive app. If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it.

Check out last year’s list here!
