2017 In Books

I usually don’t do any of these summaries. Or maybe I just didn’t do them, for I didn’t have much material to write from before. But this year I managed to reach my book goal, and since I challenged myself through the whole year, I figured there’s no reason to stop on the last day either. So, thanks to Goodreads helping me keep track, I decided to apply the one day / day one here too, and tell you what I achieved this year among the books.

  • Officially I’ve read 101 book. Unofficially a 103, one still awaits a review, and one more is reviewed, but waiting (and will wait as long as it needs) for a little cookie entry in my new favorite blog: [Pen&Pin]
  • The longest book I’ve read this year was “Blood and Gold” by Anne Rice, with 752 pages. The shortest one was “The Smuggler and the Warlord” by K.J. Charles with mere, but so very glorious 3 pages of awesome.
  • This year I’ve read “1984” by George Orwell, fully for the first time.

The Best:

  1. Felicia Day “You’re Never Weird on the Internet (almost)
  2. V.E. Schwab “A Gathering of Shadows
  3. Jeaniene Frost “Bound by Flames
  4. Laini Taylor “Strange the Dreamer
  5. A.R. Torre “If You Dare
  6. Neven Iliev “Morningwood: Everybody Loves Large Chests
  7. Adrian Tchaikovsky “Guns of the Dawn
  8. Andy Weir “Artemis
  9. N.K. Jemisin “The Fifth Season
  10. Angie Thomas “The Hate U Give
The Worst:
  1. Hugh Howey “Wool
  2. Kristin Cashore “Graceling
  3. Stephanie Garber “Caraval
  4. Dmitry Glukhovsky “Metro 2035
  5. David Ebershoff “The Danish Girl
  6. Jessica Day George “Silver in Blood
  7. Stephen King “The Gunslinger
  8. Anthony Horowitz “Moriarty
  9. Seth Grahame-Smith “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
  10. Stephen Seitz “Sherlock Holmes and the Plague of Dracula
  • I’ve only read 3 paper books this year, the rest were one way or another all in digital form. I regret nothing.
  • I’ve read 5 biographies / memoirs
  • I finished 12 series, among them being the whole of Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice.

I hope your book year was good too, and the next will be even better. Have a great Yellow Earth Dog 2018 Year!
