I still can’t believe that 2017 is already over!!! Wow did the year go fast or what?! I’ve already established that 2017 wasn’t the best reading year for me and that’s ok.

  1. I didn’t take part in any of the reading challenges – but they do look fun, so maybe I should sign up for a couple during 2018:)). I’m very impressed with how many books you managed to get through:)

  2. I also failed almost all of my challenges. All but one. Technically I guess I made my Goodreads, too. For some reason I left off my DNF in September, and my policy is to count DNFs. I feel like I should give it another chance, though. I think it was me. Anyway, CONGRATS on your NetGalley progress!!! That was my focus last year and my hyper focus this year. It will be YEARS before I reach 80%, but if I knock out 60 every year, I’ll get there fast(er). Good luck with your new challenges!
