Yearly Wrap-Up 2016

The new year is upon us, and with that, we have to let go of the old. 
2016 was an... interesting year. While it had lots of bad, lets take a moment to remember the good.
This year, my university life was absolutely hectic, I had a lot of hard classes and even harder exams, but what I am most proud of, is that I finally learned how to balance blogging/reading with school.
I set some blogging goals for myself last January, and they weren't the best. They were very vague and boring. So I decided to set some new goals for September, and I am very glad I did.

What Were My Goals?
1. Read on the bus
2. Listen to more Audiobooks
3. Schedule posts around exams
4. Be a part of more tours, blitz, and cover reveals

How did I do?
Surprisingly I did fairly well.
While reading on the bus was still challenging (mostly because my bus is super full), I did manage to listen to quite a few audiobooks on the bus, as well as walking my dog. I scheduled posts ahead of time around my midterms and finals so I could focus on my schooling, and I managed to be a part of a lot of more Tours, Blitz and Cover reveals. So I would say, this was a fairly successful year in blogging.

Reading Stats
This year I read 45 books, with a total of 15,635 pages.
I completed my Goodreads Reading Challenge, and beat it by 10 books.
I completed the Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge, and beat it by 9 books.

Favourite book read this year
