Goodbye 2016

Please let 2017 be better, because this year was awful.

So, what did I talk about last year?

I did in fact blog more in 2016 than 2015! When this post goes live, I will have blogged at least once in every month. December kind of got away from me. There was supposed to be a post go up, but I messed up something in it and had to wait for a couple holds to come in.

On books read - I have read 79 books, and have a comic book bind-up I want to tackle before 2017 hits us, so I'm really hoping to hit 80. That's up from 62 in 2015, and I'm really happy about that! And I still think the Goodreads year in books is a super cool thing to see. I am still hoping to add one more to it, but it's fun to look at!

Oh, hey, do you guys wanna see my pie chart? I made one last year and it was really interesting, so I thought I'd do it again.
In 2015, my stats were: YA 46.77%, MG 45.16%, Graphic Novels/Comics 4.84%, Adult Novels 1.61%, and Plays 1.61%. So I have definitely read more adult novels and graphic novels this year!

Should we talk about goals and stuff? I have a few things.

With reading, I want to up my Goodreads goal. I'm thinking going up to either 60 or 70 with an informal goal of "more than 2016". Maybe 65? No need to worry about it yet. And it'd be nice if I read a little non-fiction next year because there isn't even a wedge for that. I have also decided it would be fun to do #DiversityBingo2017 and the 2017 Diverse Books Reading Challenge/#DiverseReads2017. I like the idea of combining those two, and I definitely need to make more of an effort to branch out in my reading.

With blogging, I would really like to post a review or a "Things I've Read Recently" post every week. I would like to do more not-review posts, but I really struggled with ideas. Maybe I'll do monthly check-ins on my challenges/bingo if I can. We'll see.

And I can't really think of anything else! Hopefully you guys have a nice night and next year treats you better than this year.

See you guys in 2017!

Peace and cookies,
Laina
