2017 Wrap Up – My favorites of the year

This is my first time writing this article in English. For the past two years, I’ve been wrapping off the year with a look at some of my favorite books. And believe me, it ain’t easy 😳. I try not to repeat myself in this article. So if I don’t mention a book you know I’ve loved in one category, it’s probably mentioned in another one.

In 2017 I’ve read 56 books, for a total of  24 101 pages 😲. I’ve read many five stars books, but I’ve also been disappointed a couple of times. I can’t go through every book I’ve read in the past 12 months over here, so you can check it out on my GoodReads.
