I’ve done a post like this the past couple of years and I liked the way those turned out so I plan to continue in that pattern this year and post today about what I read in 2016 and what challenges I was able to complete.
So, here goes! 😉
Read my review, read a book blurb, find the rest of the books in a series, or learn more about an author by clicking on the cover of the book that interests you.
Looking back on 2016…..
I set 7 reading goals for myself at the beginning of 2016 and I’m happy to say that I was able to complete all but one of them! 🙂
New Author Challenge — Goal: Read at least 30 new-to-me authors in 2016

TBR list Challenge — Goal: Read at least 50 books from my TBR pile in 2016

Series Challenge — Goal: Finish at least 12 series in 2016

I also tried to keep track of all the places I visited in my reading travels. I didn’t get it written down for every book I read, but I did for most of them.
I visited at least 32 states and 7 countries in 2016! 😀
Where did I visit the most? England and Texas.
And now I’m looking forward to seeing where 2017 will take me!
Below is a month-by-month list of the books I read in 2016…
Check them out — maybe you’ll find some books to add to your TBR list. 😉
