Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge
I don't read a lot of current books since I keep myself pretty busy mining into my ever-expanding book piles. I buy new (Amazon online, Barnes & Noble brick and mortar, and Scholastic Book Fairs) shop thrift stores, and utilize the King County Library System, so I'm *mostly* here to keep the backlists alive. I've decided to review the 126 books I read over the past year and pick out five of my ultimate faves, and wouldn't you know, a couple "hot and trending" reads slipped onto my reading radar. Here's the breakdown:
1.) CHILDRENS PICTURE BOOK
Pick a Pine Tree by Patricia Toht (2017)
2.) HOLIDAY YA ROMANCE
My New Crush Gave To Me by Shani Petroff (2017)
3.) CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne (2016)
4.) YOUNG ADULT FANTASY
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (2015)
5.) WRITING CRAFT
Super Structure by James Scott Bell (2015)
It was hard breaking the list down to merely five, but I feel pretty strongly about my choices! Definitely good reads. Here are the others I've read over the past year, nearly half of them being childrens picture books.
Goodbye to 2017! It's been a great year of reading.
