2017 Reading Challenge: A Summary

That’s a wrap on 2017 and its reading challenge! I read a lot of books this year in genres such as sci-fi, fantasy, biography, memoir, fiction, non-fiction, and theology. I started this year with the goal of reading 103 books. While I did not reach that initial goal, I am very happy with completing (and exceeding!) my revised goal of 52 books.

I posted most of this summary in a previous post, but here is my completed 2017 reading challenge “year in review.” I wish I had blogged reviews for all of these books, but I have embedded links to the book reviews I did write. And, if you would like to see my star ratings and short form thoughts on each book, you can find them on my Goodreads profile!

Without further adieu, here are all of the books I read in 2017!
