2017 Reading Recap

I did an AWFUL job at keeping up with book reviews. There are still some from 2015 I have not yet written, and about half a year's worth from 2016. I had strong feelings about many of these books, so there's really no excuse except my own laziness. I did manage to keep track of them all in Goodreads. And I completed THREE reading challenges. So the year wasn't a complete failure on the reading front.

Number of Rereads: 5

Reading Challenges Completed:
2017 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge (all 52 prompts)
