WHAT??? 2017 reading wrap up! ðŸ˜®

How is it that I am writing my 2017 reading wrap up blog already? Seems crazy! So I initially set a Goodreads goal of 50 books. By April/May I was so close to that goal that I bumped up to 100. But I fell into a reading slump starting in June. I did read but it slowed down. So I ended 2017 reading 92 books. I’m so happy with this. It’s record breaking for me.
