It's not counting the book I finished yesterday, but close enough. I feel good about this year's numbers, as I've smashed my goal of 35! I think I could've made it to 100 if I hadn't adopted the wee kitten monster...lol. 📚💖😊

So this be my year in books. I rate 2 books as 5 🌟, 2 as 4 🌟, 12 as 3 🌟, 5 as 2 🌟, and 2 as 1 🌟. That's pretty common for me given that j really have to enjoy a book for it to be a 3/5.

Finally doing #17in2017! I started off my year a little weak on books but ended really strong and read quite a few I loved. #TheHeartsInvisibleFuries was hands down my favorite of the year.

What was your favorite?

DeborahSmall Great choices ❤️ 2y
cathysaid Cool graphic! 2y
Andrew65 What a great list of books! 2y

Andrew65 Only read (and loved) Eleanor Oliphant, but most of the others are on my to read list. 2y
MinDea @Andrew65 News of the World was recommended to my by Melanie Benjamin (one of my favorite authors). I would highly recommend that one! #THIF and Pachinko too!! 2y
MinDea Thanks @DeborahSmall and @cathysaid! I had a pretty decent year in books! I only read a couple books I really disliked. Most I liked or Loved! @cathysaid just used pic collage and let it randomly place everything! Easy peasy! 2y
bedandabook So many good books on there. Great year! 2y
Andrew65 @MinDea Not one I had heard of, but Pachinko is already on my watch list, just need to locate a copy. Thanks for the recommendation. 👍 (edited) 2y
starrdom Totally agree with you about #TheHeartsInvisibleFuries - it was my favorite of 2017 too. I ❤️ Cyril and Maude. 2y
Jess7 I‘m not sure I could pick just one, but some really good ones were: The Passenger, Good as Gone, and Little Fires Everywhere. I‘m not finished with Furies yet, but I really like it so far! 2y

I was hoping to finish The Chronicles of Narnia before th year was out but did not accomplish that. Here are my stats for 2017. I aim for 1 book a week and was able to accomplish that this year with starting a new job, buying a house and moving!

I have the same goal for 2018; 52 books.
What is your goodreads goal?

Linda906 Wow! That‘s awesome! Great year of reading for you! 2y
2BR02B I'm doing 120. 10 books a month seems feasible, especially since I read a bunch of graphic novels. 2y
britt_brooke Nicely done! I‘m setting my goal at either 85 or 100. I can‘t decide! #booknerdproblems 2y

Christine11 Congratulations! My goal is going to be very similar to yours ! About one a week 🎉😊 2y
Laughterhp I‘m going to set it for 115. I did 140 this year and that was with getting married and going on my honeymoon. 2y
MinDea @Laughterhp Congratulations on getting married! You'll probably be able to read more since you don't have a wedding and honeymoon to plan! 2y
MinDea @Christine11 I wish I could read more but 1 a week is what I can handle! 2y
MinDea Thanks @britt_brooke @Linda906 ! @britt_brooke you can always change it once you meet it! 2y
MinDea @2BR02B wow! 10 a month! I guess graphic novels are shorter, but still! Impressive! 2y
Christine11 @MinDea Me too - I really want to do 100 but I just know 1 a week is more realistic! 😊 2y
Andrew65 Well done and best of luck with your reading this year. 2y
Redwritinghood 👏👏👏👏 My goal is 150. I read over 200 last year, but need to scale back to get to other projects. 2y
Jess7 Great job! I read 52 Books In 2017. I was hoping to finish a few more, but it didn‘t happen. I read the majority of those in the first six months of the year, so maybe I‘ll read even more this year! 2y

alvingregorio Woo hoo! Just curious to hear how you felt about A Little Life. 2y
Christine11 @alvingregorio thank you ! A Little Life was a really hard one for me because it was so well written but it was emotionally really tough and honestly it really upset me so I don‘t know if I‘ll ever read it again. It was such a powerful book though so I would recommend it ! Have you read it ? 😊 2y
alvingregorio Yes, I've read it. I love hearing how others have responded to this book and how it affected them. It was so punishing and sad for me. I always hoped that things would get better but never did. It's hard for me to recommend without a warning of being traumatized. Maybe if it was shorter, I'd be more likely to read it again and recommend it to others. 2y
Christine11 @alvingregorio I totally agree with you. It does feel like it needs to come with a warning because I really think it would be impossible for some people to read without being too traumatised! Like you - I just kept thinking there might be a happy ending and I was so upset ! It‘s a really tough one ! 2y

As I finished my last book for this year earlier this morning, I can finally post my Goodreads stats. 😊

CatLass007 What tab on Goodreads should I look under to find this information? Any help would be appreciated. 2y
scripturient @CatLass007 You need to go to the Desktop site as it doesn‘t work on the mobile one and neither on the app. When you then go to the Home screen and scroll way down, there should be a widget on the left saying ‚Goodreads Blog - your 2017‘ or something like it. :) 2y
laurenbescoby @CatLass007 if it isn't appearing at the top of the main page, there should also be a link to it on your profile 😊 2y

CatLass007 I don‘t have a desktop. I only have an iPad mini and an iPhone. That explains why I can‘t find it. Thank you so much @scripturient and @miralunasbooknook !! 2y
CatLass007 Another question: is there a tab to set up a 2018 reading challenge? 2y
laurenbescoby @CatLass007 not yet, I keep checking too but I think they don't release the ability to sign up until the 1st of January. I also don't use a desktop, but theres usually an option to switch to the desktop site on your phone if that helps 😊 2y
CatLass007 @miralunasbooknook I really appreciate the “tech support.” 2y
scripturient @CatLass007 You can click on the desktop view on your mobile devices too. Just search for the tap in the menu on the left. :) 2y
CatLass007 @scripturient Thank you 😊 2y
Kalalalatja Well done 👏👏👏 2y
Leniverse Wow, you've managed to read a book no one else did! I read some obscure books sometimes, or so I think, but there's always a couple of other people who have read it that same year. 2y
scripturient @Leniverse 😂😂 Yes. Well, I gotta say that the author is a friend and it was published by a rather smallish poetry press, so it wouldn‘t be super commercial. 😊 2y

With a couple weeks left, I will probably read more books, but 200 was a nice round figure, plus the link to this feature is now gone from the top of my #goodreads page and I had to search for it. Oh my #firstworldproblem #readingstats #myyearinbooks #2017reading All I can see is that I am pretty generous with my ratings. Or maybe, I mostly read 'good' books... either way works for me.

tomes4gnomes I find that my ratings skew high because I usually DNF books I‘m not enjoying and don‘t bother to rate them. 2y
Missusb Yeah, and GR doesn't seem to let you mark something as DNF, WITHOUT having to mark it as 'read'. Weird. There were 8 unrated books from me, and mostly they were ones I didn't finish. @tomes4gnomes 2y
Melissa_J @tomes4gnomes I remove the date read from DNF‘d books so they don‘t count in my stats. 2y
See All 6 Comments
tomes4gnomes @Missusb @Melissa_J I just change the status back to “want to read” and add them to my DNF shelf. They don‘t show up in the ratings or end of year totals. Whatever works! But I do wish GR had a clear option for this scenario. 2y
emtobiasz @tomes4gnomes @Melissa_J @Missusb You can create another shelf for DNF and go into the shelf settings to make it another mutually exclusive choice (like Read, Want To Read, and Currently Reading). I think you have to do it from desktop, though-- I can't find the option to adjust shelf settings on the app. I think if you add read dates it automatically moves books to "Read", though. #goodreadshacks 2y
tomes4gnomes @emtobiasz Ah, thank you so much! I will try it the next time I‘m on my laptop. 😃👍 2y

RadicalReader @Redjewel_7734 that sounds like an awesome book I swear I never knew so many books that were worthy of being read and reviewed lived on Litsy lol I swear I never in my wildest dreams ever imagined this to exist a haven for book lovers 3y
Redjewel_7734 @RadicalReader I know! I've pretty much given up other social media and made this home. Littens are my people ☺ 3y
RadicalReader @Redjewel_7734 I have abandoned all other social media Facebook has been dead and buried at least to me when they implemented the using of a separate messaging app to communicate with your friends instead of it being inside the app they was the straw that broke the camels back for me. Realized I also didn't need any other social media. Used most because one other was using it 3y
Redjewel_7734 @RadicalReader for me it was just the fakeness, negativity and constant trolling that drove me away from other social media. It just became such a time-suck that I didn't really enjoy and to often regretted time spent there that it's not worth it. I decided my social needs meant a space I enjoy & that is here. I can keep up with news & other things & people in other ways & spaces. Just glad to have found such a great space here 😊 3y
RadicalReader @Redjewel_7734 it truly is one of a kind makes finding like minded people who enjoy reading and discussing books so much more enjoyable and worthwhile. 3y

Since the rest of today will be filled with NYE festivities with friends, I will call my reading year done! I didn't meet my goal of 60 books, but I have no doubt that I will surpass that next year with Litsy's influence! FTR, I rarely give 5 stars on Goodreads ; therefore, I'd say that an average rating of 3.6 means that I read some pretty good books this year! #bringon2017

"My Year" is a relatively unknown book that Dahl wrote just before he died, with stories from his childhood and gorgeous Quentin Blake watercolors. #RoaldDahlDay #RoaldDahl100
