Reading Tally for 2016

Happy New Year!

Many people are looking back at the year we leave behind and I figured that it would be appropriate to do here since keeping track of what I read in 2016 was what eventually began this blog. It started as simply seeing how many books and graphic novels I would read in a year since I had actual time to devote to recreational reading rather than articles or required reading while I was in college.

You will find below the total number of novels, nonfiction books, and graphic novels I read in 2016 as well as the amount of pages and what I read each month. The type of book is listed before the title and the authors are in parentheses.

I look forward to what 2017 has to offer and have some very exciting reviews and editorials planned.

As always, thanks for reading!
