This post a place for me to keep track of the books I read in 2017. Feel free to skip it, or you can share book recommendations, talk about your reading goals for this year or anything book-related.

My goal last year was to read 100 books, which I achieved. Barely. It was pretty touch-and-go there for awhile. But I ended up reading 105 books in 2016. My goal for this year is once again 100 books.

Thanks for the recs! I've owned Station Eleven since it was released but still haven't gotten around to reading it. And I've heard lots of good things about Zadie Smith novels so I'll definitely check that one out :)

Way to go with 133! And of all of those I have only read the Liane Moriarty one, I remember liking it but not so much what it was about?

It's basically about the messy lives of a bunch of rich women and there's a murder mystery lol. I read it after I watched the HBO adaptation (which is AMAZING). The book is a lot lighter than the show but I enjoyed both a lot.
