My Year in Books 2016

I started my Goodreads reading challenge at 150 books to read, but that didn't go well. I lowered it at 75 books because I had been stuck in a reading slump for most of 2016. Even when December started, I didn't even believe I would complete it, but guess what... I did and I even read 9 books over my goal. Yup, I read 84 books in 2016. When you compare it to last year, it's like a 100 less books, but still... that's life.

You can check my monthly recap of my reading pile to see which books I read this year, but let's start with a quick summary of my year in books :)

My ratings for my 84 books were the following
 8 were rated 5 stars
★ 1 was rated 4.75 stars
★ 18 were rated 4.5 stars
★ 2 were rated 4.25 stars
★ 44 were rated 4 stars
★ 4 were rated 3.75 stars
★ 4 were rated 3.5 stars
★ 2 were rated 3.25 stars
★ 1 was rated 3 stars

According to Goodreads, the longest book I read was Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare and the shortest would 300 Fox Way Holiday Piece by Maggie Stiefvater.
