Hope you all had a Happy New Years! Thanks again for following Below you will find my wrap-up post for 2016
This year I ended up reading 260 books, again less than last year but still respectable. My goal was 250 books, which I hit. So it was a great year for reading. You can go to the full list of books read here. I have also broken them down into category below by genre and age group.
I focused mostly on book reviews (about 5 per week) and blog hops this year, those are what seem to generate the most traffic.
If there is anything you would like to see more of next year? Please comment and let me know!
Urban Fantasy/Paranormal: 79
Science Fiction: 26
Graphic Novel: 80
Historical Fiction: 6
Contemporary Fiction: 13

I was hugely successful in reducing my TBR pile this year. I ended 2015 with 230 books in my TBR pile. I ended this year with 194 books in my TBR pile. Yay!!! If only I can do that for a few more years in a row I might actually get through all my books at some point! Below is a chart of my progress since 2012.
