2016 hasn’t been the greatest year for me in terms of reading, I’ve had A-Level exams and I started university so it’s been pretty hectic. My Goodreads goal for this year was 55 books and I’ve unfortunately only read 27.
However, I’ve accumulated tonnes of books which I am anxious to read so am hoping to knuckle down with my ever-growing TBR pile and decrease it significantly. So here is my list of books I’ve read this year, there aren’t many but they’re all lovely.
- The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4) by Rick Riordan – 3.5/5

So there we have it! There isn’t many but I enjoyed them all tonnes and can not wait to see what amazing books 2017 brings me. Icurrently have a huge TBR pile that I desperately need to reduce full of books I’m extremely excited to read, so currently it should be a really good year in terms of reading.
I hope you all had an amazing year and read lots of books that brought you happiness and fun. I hope 2017 brings everyone fantastic adventures literal and not.
