    Well, it's been quite a year! I'm a little late posting this, but I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant and feeling about to burst so that is my excuse for everything :) My 2017 on Goodreads has been a bit of a whirlwind. I've read a lot of great books, some not so great books, and in the year's final quarter I was invited to the Goodreads HQ and took part in an interview for the Goodreads blog. Oh, and I met Margaret Atwood because this year wasn't wo...

    This review marks the end of my fourth year of goodreading! 222 books & 70000 pages = 2017I’ve read so many books this year, some great and some terrible, though I’ve learnt so much and gained so much. I finished my undergraduate degree, started a master’s degree and undertook some freelance review work. It’s been so much fun! So here’s my breakdown: -My top five:1. Siddhartha is beautiful and wise, one of the best pieces of fiction I ...

    You can also see this at https://readrantrockandroll.com/2017/...This has been one incredible year of reading. Even though I joined Goodreads in 2008, I didn't remain active, and this year has been my first full/active year here. I've thoroughly enjoyed discussing reviews, learning about new authors and books, making new friends, and increasing my TBR up to 13,559!This year I started my own book blog which includes most of my book reviews and muc...

    So I used this place as a wish list during 2017, and I'm hoping there will be a 2018 on Goodreads soon that I can start to plan out my year. 2017 was a good year for me. After summer I did have less time to read due to a Master studies I started, which is taking up a lot of time next to my job but did manage 70 reads. This year, probably a bit less. But... the good part is, the studies are very challenging indeed and I do try to keep reading in b...

    Let’s be real, 2017 was kind of a garbage fire year for our world, but at least we had some good books! I had a pretty good reading year! I’m very happy with the 130 books that I read, and I feel like with each year I get better and better at picking out books, and requesting ARCs, that I am confident I will at least enjoy, therefore, my average rating tends to get higher and higher. ➽ And thanks to the amazing Brock at Let's Read, here are...

    Books have always been a safe haven and this year I have needed that solace more than ever. Gone, are the days of blissful complacency and I think my reading choices reflected my introspective mood and internal struggles. The year of 2017 shows a marked change, compared to years past, as the bulk of my reading was dark, serious, angry, and somber. However, it has not all been gloom and doom. Along the way, I have discovered some amazing authors, ...

    This is my final version with two additional favorites added.One of the best things about my reading year in 2017 is the connection I have made on Goodreads with new friends and old . There are few people in my life to whom I can gush about books that I love, complain about the ones that are just so so or the ones I could not finish, and few people who enlighten me with their perspectives on what they have read. What’s with my friends and famil...

    2017 was an amazing reading year for me!!! =)))I got to know so many awesome new series (The Raven Cycle, Six of Crows, Red Queen, Wicked Lovely, ACOTAR, Shatter Me, you name it!!), managed to continue series I loved (Everything, literally everything from Cassandra Clare!!! and J.R.Ward), read my first m/m book and realised that I’m actually addicted to LGBTQ stories! *lol*, discovered Santino Hassell over the summer *moans* ;-P; finished serie...

    2017 IN FICTION : THE GOOD STUFFI ploughed through a number of why-haven’t-I-already-read-this? books – the three by H G Wells turned out to be short, sharp and shocking - The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man and The Island of Doctor Moreau. You don’t read these things because you think you already know the stories well enough but when you do get round to it you find they’re so much weirder and crazier and funnier than you had any ri...

    I have known about Goodreads for a few years now, but not until this past year have I really dedicated myself to becoming an active participant of this site. I'm not sure why I waited, because this year has defined me as a reader in more ways than one. First, I've started writing reviews. It's interesting to look at how my writing as progressed throughout the year. Second, I've read and responded to a lot of my friend's reviews. That singular act...

    This year was wonderful as a Goodreads member but not as good as a reader. I meet new friends and I had thought provoking conversations with my older ones. I grew my book knowledge thanks to my presence here and I am thankful for all the meaningful time I spent on this platform. However, this year was less impressive in reading terms. I made some poor choices and they were due to GR as well. Inspired by other friends, I followed some rewards and ...

    A very good reading year with primarily 4 and 5 star books. Also the most books I have ever read in one year at 137. However, I also had two 1 star books which I haven't had for a few years.Here is the basic breakdown: Best book this year: and my 2017 overall Bradbury experience. Also, I think I need to give honorable mention to Worst book this year: Tie Pleasant surprises: Expected more: Series I liked: Series I didn't car...

    Comforting books, disconcerting books, having not set any reading (or other) goal for 2017 I mostly just ventured into reading what seemed to chime with my mood and whims, besides from the choices fixed by the book club. 2017 turned out a rather excellent year as far as reading and books – ever true friends - were concerned, although the friendship was at times disgracefully unilateral, life often too demanding to write reviews or catch up with...

    Hooray for Goodreads! I’m celebrating my sixth year on this fantabulous site and am now wishing all of my GR friends a Laurel and Hardy handshake and good tidings in this holiday season.2017 was another great reading year for me. In addition to meeting so many new friends and keeping up with my established GR friends, I also spent a great deal of time in Discworld, so much so that my passport was inked over and I got a tax notice from Lord Veti...

    2017 was a busier year than usual for me. I went to Maine, lost my dog of 17 years, and gained a wife and a cat. Thus I didn't read nearly as many books as I would have liked during quieter years.However, I like to think the overall quality was much higher than in previous years. I was a little more selective and a lot less willing to push through things I wasn't enjoying. Reading is for pleasure, after all, not self-torture.While I already compi...

    Well, 2017!You've been a roller coaster of a year for sure, hilarious, nauseating, up and down, fast speed, confusing, - and you leave me somewhat disoriented and shaky on my legs. Best reading experience of the year? Well, there is a lot to choose from, but I have to say that the adventure of reading all of Henry Green's novels over summer was a blast:LovingParty GoingLivingBlindnessBackCaughtDotingConcludingNothingThe other reading marathon tha...

    The end of the year is barreling along like Keanu Reeves on a bus, so I thought I'd post an inventory of the books I've read in 2017.*Sigh* I'm not trying to make anyone envious here, but I have comfortably exceeded my target of one whole book by reading thirty-six, so well done me!And where's my blasted prize? I would like to thank my many groovy Goodreads friends (whose eloquent reviews are often better than the books they've critiqued). We don...

    Last year, the novel was my best friend. We shared morning coffee together, decadence on the banks of the Seine, and evenings with fine wine under starry skies. It played a big part this year, but also took a vacation, paving the way for non-fiction, short-stories, poetry, plays and essays. Yep, 2017 was a time of diversity. Four years on from joining, and goodreads continues to be a great place to hang out. I take just as much pleasure reading y...
