Peace out, 2017

There is about an hour until the year is officially over and I’m currently binge watching Blacklist on Netflix. I haven’t really done any kind of partying on New Year’s Eve in a long time and I’m OK with that. I finished a book earlier and plan on watching TV and reading for the rest of the evening. I’m so old!

As far as reading goes, I read 77 books this year. I only tracked a couple children’s books even though I read several per week for story time at my library. For next year’s challenge, I thought about counting every single book I read, including children’s books, just to see how many I’ll read in a year, BUT I feel counting the children’s books is cheating. I just think it would be interesting to see all that I read in one year, children’s books included. Once the 2018 challenge opens up, I’ll decide what to set my number at. Obviously if I include children’s books I will set the number high 🙂 In addition to the Goodreads challenge, I’m doing a few other reading challenges as well. Right now I’m going to try Flourish & Blotts (someone from one of my Facebook groups created this one but I haven’t found a website yet), 26 Books Challenge with Bringing up Burns (I’d saved a prompt for this but I think it was for a previous year, she hasn’t posted the one for 2018 yet), and 2018 Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge. More than likely I’ll add one more. My goal for some of the challenge categories is to choose from books I already own — I have enough of them.

There are several goals floating around in my head and eventually I’ll write them out but right now I’m going to enjoy what’s left of 2017 and pray that 2018 is good to me.

Happy New Year!
