2017 Reading Wrap-Up

Well hello there my loves!

How are you all doing? I really hope you had a lovely festive period, whatever it is that you celebrate. Today I am going to quickly run down the books that I have read in 2017. The beginning of this year was a total whirlwind for me with work and law school and so I didn’t actually read a single book until the last week of July. Regardless of this, 2017 has probably been one of the best reading years for me in a long while, between the last week of July and today (26th December) I have actually managed to read 62 books which works out at almost 3 books per week! Here is a list of all the books that I have read in 2017. If there is a book here that you would like a review on, please let me know in the comments down below. Here are some stats:
