I read a lot of really good books last quarter. Usually, these book review posts are heavy on the “books somewhere in the middle” (AKA three out of five stars). This one, though, is heavy on the four and five star reads. I attribute this to becoming pickier with my reading choices, as well as getting off the library waitlist for several much anticipated books. Or I could be getting softer with age and rating my reads less critically. Who knows?
My goal for 2016 was to read 100 books. I’m happy to report that I ended up reading 100, according to Goodreads. Surprisingly, I’ve decided to not try to repeat that feat this year. I set my 2017 reading goal for 50 books, because I want to try to achieve a better balance between reading and writing this year. If I read more than 50? Awesome! But hopefully I’ll be able to get some writing done between books, too.
