2017 Wrap up

This was my first year of blogging, and I absolutely loved it! I’m so glad that I have been able to get to know so many of my fellow bloggers. I really feel at home in the book blogging community.

So here’s my year of books, according to Goodreads:

So I read 290 books… yes that’s a lot!
And what may be even crazier is that I’m going to make my reading goal 300 for 2018. Since I review a book everyday, I’m always reading. But I love it so it isn’t a chore for me. And since I almost made it to 300 books with just blogging for the past 8 months, I should be able to reach that goal next year.

Another milestone is that my NetGalley approval rating is 74%!
I made a goal to get it to 80% by January 1, 2018, but I wasn’t able to reach that. However, I made a lot of progress on that goal through December, because my rating was at 60% at the beginning of December. Hopefully I will be able to get to 80% by my birthday (February 22).

Now for some blogging stats:

My most viewed post was my Blogmas – Day 1 post.

My most viewed review was Jane Eyre (Manga Classic). This really surprised me! I didn’t expect this one to be my most viewed review.

As of writing this post, I have 431 followers! Thank you so much to everyone who has followed my blog. I appreciate all of you! I’m planning on doing a giveaway when I reach 500 followers, so hopefully that will happen in the near future!

I have had a fabulous year of reading and blogging! I hope you have too!

Thanks for reading!

Happy New Year and All the Best in 2018!!!
