108 Book Reviews in 2016

Needless to say, my (foster) grandmother is rolling in her grave because I actually have read more in one year than maybe my entire life. I used to hate reading in high school. I would have rather turned up some music and just dance the night away in my room singing into my hair brush just to be in the moment. Reading was the furthest thing from my teen mind. But..

I did it-- I totally, totally did it!!!!

I made not just 100 books... no...

I exceeded it and scored 108%! (I was always the one to do extra credit, what can I say?)

So here are all the books I reviewed in 2016, for better or worse. Enjoy!

Not all the books are actually present in the picture because some of them I gave away. Actually, to be fair, I also lost some in the move. Even though that move was only a couple of miles, it was the worst move thus far. But now staying here for a while. So a few books got lost along the way but I know some I have given away as well.

At any rate, here is the full list of books that were reviewed in 2016. You will notice my numbers start off small each month. Then as the months progress you can tell I have gotten into my book review programs and start to review a lot more.

My reviews as time when on got better and more thorough as well because of the fact that it was my first year reviewing books. Reviewing books definitely helped out with my writing and critiquing skills. I will be honest, some of the books I had to stretch to find something positive about them. The majority were great and some were the best and I am so happy to have gotten to review them.

So here is the list-- hope you enjoy.
