2016 End of the Year Book Survey

Hosted by The Perpetual Page Turner

I complete this survey every year and it is fun to look back on to see what books I really loved from the previous year and which books I put as a priority for the next year. 

Number of Books Read: 46
Number of Rereads: 0
Genre You Read the Most: Contemporary

1. Best Book You Read In 2016?
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick, Winter Garden, Winter, My Lady Jane, and Small Great Things.
2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?
The Geography of You and Me. I thought this book was going to be a great romance book and it did have romance, but it also had many slow parts. 
 3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?  
Winter Garden. I knew I would love the book, but I fell in love with the characters and began way more involved with the story than I thought I would. 
 4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?
 5. Best series you started in 2016? Best Sequel of 2016? Best Series Ender of 2016?

5. One Thing You Hope To Accomplish Or Do In Your Reading/Blogging Life In 2017?

 I hope to continue to read the books I want to read. I hope to keep reading in my life as I will start my journey as a first year teacher next year. It's crazy to think this dream I have had since I was a little kid is finally coming true. I know it will be challenging, but I'm ready to face that challenge and make a difference.

 I have not read any 2017 releases yet.
