Happy New Year everyone! 2016 was a year of so many changes for me, and I read a total of 124 books throughout the whole year (my goal was 100!). The months near the end of the year were less book-finishing filled, as I started my first (dream) job in my field after ten months of working retail, and I also moved to my dream city. That being said, here’s what I read in 2016! If I’ve reviewed a book, it will be linked.

Unboxings from 2016:

My reading goal for 2017 is currently set to 50 books, as I don’t want to stress myself out but I do really want to get out of my reading slump soon. What is your goal for 2017, and what was the best book you read in 2016?

Feel free to add me on my various social media accounts to keep updated on what I’m reading:Β Goodreads,Β Instagram,Β Twitter, andΒ Facebook!
