2017 Wrap Up

So, this was going to be about looking back at the reading goals I made in 2017 and seeing if I accomplished any of them but… I TOTALLY bombed.

Instead, here is my year in books according to Goodreads.

Overall, I am actually happy with the reading I did in 2017. Do I wish I could have read more books? Of course! But I managed to read a book a week which is pretty good given the fact that I am also in my last year of grad school.

How about you guys?
Did you reach the goals you set for yourself?

Favorite Books of 2017

The Heartbreaker Bay series is one of my favorite series I have read this year. 
Accidentally on Purpose 
is actually my favorite read of the year but The Trouble with Mistletoe was also amazing and I LOVED the movie.

 Another series I discovered this year that I absolutely fell in love with is the Chicago Rebels series. Kate Meader is a new favorite author for me and I can’t wait to read more of her books. If you like hockey romances, you NEED to pick this series up.

And… the award for my favorite cover goes to this gorgeous book.
Add in the fact that it was an adorable and equally steamy second chance romance
co-written by one of my all-time favorite authors who brought me one of my favorite book boyfriends of the year and you bet I was one happy girl.

Harper Sloan is another author I discovered this year and I am SO GLAD that I did.
The Coming Home series is one I plan on finishing in the new year because this series has ignited my love for cowboy romances.

A new favorite romance sub-genre of mine this year was M/M romance and it is ALL because of this M/M sports romance. I can’t wait to read more books like this in 2018.

Not only was this such a cute marriage of convenience romance with a gorgeous Irish hero but the heroine was also super relatable.

This was such a wonderful surprise!
I loved it so much I actually re-read a few months after the first time I read it.
If you are looking for a cute romantic comedy that will make you smile, pick this up.

This is probably the steamiest read of the year for me and I LOVED every second of it.
I ended up buying the entire series after reading this because I knew I would love it.
This is another series I intend to finish in 2018.
