2017: A Year in Books and Blogging

At this time of year, I like to take a look back over the last 12 months at my year in books and blogging.  It’s partly an excuse to roll out some funky graphs, but also a chance to send a big thank you to the authors and publishers who’ve provided copies of their books for review, as well as to my fellow bloggers – book people really are the best kind of people!

I’ve already posted by favourite books of the year, which you can see here.  It was particularly difficult to put the list together this year, as I’ve read some fantastic books, and there were several that I really wanted to include in my list.

To put it into context, during 2017 I’ve read 123 books, totalling 42,195 pages, which breaks down like this:

Not too shabby, eh?

Of the titles I’ve reviewed this year, the most viewed were:

  1. The Baltimore Boys by Joël Dicker
  2. Autumn by Ali Smith
  3. Final Girls by Riley Sager

Happy New Year!


    1. Thanks! I do love a graph or three! 😀 I liked The Baltimore Boys, although it didn’t quite reach the same level as Harry Quebert for me.
