80 Books

I'm an avid reader, but I suppose even avid readers have to put their books down every so often. Unfortunately, this school year has been one big reason to put books down. I've simply been amazingly busy and haven't had much time for anything but school. Thanksgiving and Christmas gave me a small respite, so I tried my best to make up for all the books I haven't had time to read since school started. Here's my journey. (FYI: These are all young adult and juvenile fiction books.)

My favorites:

A Court of Mist and Fury - This is book two of a fantasy series. I didn't know I was a fantasy fan, but I've enjoyed this series a lot.

The Thing About Jellyfish - It's endearing and well-written.


Because of Mr. Terupt - I adored this book, and it surprised me.

So B. It - This story ranks at the top of my list, for sure. I loved it from beginning to end.

There are lots of good books on my list, and many of them had great Goodread ratings. Hopefully you found something here that you can add to your list.

P.S. I read 80 books in 2016. That's not a bad total, especially considering my August, September, October, and November.

  1. Always like to read what you're reading. I like YA too. I've noticed my book reading has slowed down -- for me, I think it's choices. Anyway, looked thru my stack beside the bed and got start on one the other day. Yay me.

    1. Sara, yes yah you! YA is one of my favorite genres. Plus, when I'm crunched for time, I can usually count on them being quicker reads.

  4. Thanks for your recommendations, Tammy!
    I used to routinely read 50 to 60 books a year, but I've fallen off in the last couple of years. My goal this year is to get back up to 60 books.
    80 is AMAZING!
    Happy New Year!
