Goodreads Challenge – 2017 – COMPLETED!!

2017 Goodreads Reading Challenge Button

Last year, I chose to focus my Goodreads challenge on books that were new-to-me. I succeeded and actually surpassed my goal, reading 83 new-to-me books.

This year, I decided to go back to simply counting books overall. I have other challenges to help me keep track of the various types of books I read; this year Goodreads will just be an overall count. I’m challenging myself to read 175 books this coming year. I don’t know, I may not make that many, but we’ll see!

** UPDATED December 2017 ** I’ve gone through and put the books in genres. The most prolific genre by far was cozy mysteries, followed by romance. Books are in alphabetical order by title within their genres.

Total Books Read:   182 (some were read more than once)
