I dont know about anyone else but I have no idea how I survived without Goodreads. Especially now we live in the world of Ebooks, and different covers/names for different countries, or just between the hard and paperback. On a couple of occasions I have still been caught out by different versions being available on Goodreads and reading a couple of pages thinking “hmmm this is familiar”.
Dont get me wrong – I dont mind re-reading a book, picking up the hints and clues i missed the first time round, but when you pay to download a book you ve already got it can be frustrating.
But Im going off on a tangent. I wanted to review all of the books I finished in 2017. I set myself a reading challenge of 30 books and managed to complete 55 – I really dont know where I find the time! (especially when the wonderful works of Sarah J Maas and Cassandra Clare have an excess of 600 pages in a book).
When I look back at the covers of the books I read not a single one jumps out, which considering I choose alot of my books by the cover Im quite surprised by – I also cant choose a favorite. A Court of Wings and Ruin is definetly a contender, but so is the Roanoke Girls, Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine and The last Mrs Parish.
Happy 2017 to you all and lets hope 2018 brings many more literary marvels.
