2017 Goodreads Reading Challenge: 10 Books Read!

Hey! I finished reading my tenth book of the year last night!

I'm so glad I decided on a 35-book challenge this year; it makes for a gentler reading pace, especially since I'm writing at the moment as well.

Here is my list. Click on the title links if you're curious about my reviews (the one for Silence, I warn you, is basically an essay) What are you guys reading or what have you read?

  1. Yay!! 10 already! I might be a smidgen behind, but I'm going to finish something this week and then I'll be caught up. Of course distraction came this afternoon in the form of an early review copy of a book I'm dying to read! ^_^ But I'm going to be good and finish my anthology first.

  2. A bit of variety there. I tend to do the same or (and this is silly) I re-read a whole series again. Just finished Harry Potter. :-)

    1. I try for variety. It's fun to read a series over again.
