If I haven't yet made it clear, I am a near-constant reader. This year I've set the rather ambitious goal of reading 50 books (which is roughly one a week). In 2017, I read 34 so it will be a bit of a jump but one I think I can do. As I pick and choose what I want to read this year, I decided to take a look back at my favorite books from last year. Fun fact: this was only supposed to be top ten but then I couldn't cut this list down. They're in no particular order!

Throughout this year, I plan on popping reviews up every now and then on some of my favorite books so if I do another round-up like this, I can link back to them. I used to have a habit of writing down quotes from books I loved, but I stopped out of pure laziness; as I read through more books, I plan on reforming this habit. Here's to a year of good (and even great) reading!
