I track everything through Goodreads. I give a star rating for every book and write reviews for probably 75% of what I read. They're not as in-depth as the reviews I write here but they do the trick.

I've lost track of how many books and online resources I've read on the Enneagram. It's my favorite personality type system. I've been plumbing the depths of my type for several years now and still keep learning new aspects about it. It truly is a dynamic system. These books are... Continue reading

Now that I've added audiobooks into the mix, it's a constant battle to decide whether to listen to that or to listen to a podcast. I feel your pain!

Way to break your current record!

Hey, 100 books is still incredible! Don't sell yourself short.

All the ebooks I've read came from my To Read list. I first see if they're available from the library and if not, I'll buy from Barnes & Noble. If I decide to purchase, sometimes I'll choose the physical copy over the ebook but the ebook is often cheaper so that can be the deciding factor. In 3rd grade, we had a few lessons on speed reading and I've been off to the races ever since. :)

146 is incredible, Janet! Don't let my freakishness make you doubt your accomplishment.

30 books is still great! One of my dearest friends is a very slow reader so that is all the more an accomplishment.

I Hate Everyone, Except You- Clinton Kelly Synopsis Bestselling author and television host Clinton Kelly pens a hilariously candid, deliciously snarky collection of essays about his journey from awkward kid to slightly-less-awkward adult. Clinton Kelly is probably best known for teaching women how to make their butts look smaller. But... Continue reading

The more I read, the more I read. This has proven true the last few years but especially this year. While I've consistently read more than 100 books since 2012, I somehow managed to read 313 books in 2016. That is an explosion compared to 2015's respectable 141 books. There... Continue reading

Especially after reading Meghan's article about the question her grandfather and then father asked their family everyday, which served as the inspiration for this novel. Dear Life by Meghan Quinn Publication Date: January 5th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance Synopsis: Four lives. Four... Continue reading

Yes! I loved that too. Even though it made me more aggravated on their behalf for the reason you gave.
Thanks, Michele! It's by far my best investment this winter.
Thank you, Linda!

While I was in my hometown for Christmas, everyone asked me what I thought about Minnesota. "It's cold and snowy," I replied. Sometimes I'd even joke about how I questioned my decision to move here...and there's a grain of truth to that. I hate winter and I especially hate snow,... Continue reading

Oh, that's awesome! Glad they became your favorites, too. I'm still in the process of reading The New Jim Crow- I started it more than a year ago but I've found I get too worked up if I try to read at my usual pace. Just Mercy was one of my favorite reads from a year or two ago.

Hope you enjoy reading them! I haven't heard of Grit before but I'm impressed by the effect it had on you.

I read a ton of fiction every year. I had the hardest time narrowing it down so brace yourself for a long list. I've divided it by general fiction, YA, and romance. These books were not necessarily published this past year but this is when I read them. I hope... Continue reading

It's time for my annual book roundup! Here are the best nonfiction books I read in 2016. These are the ones I couldn't stop thinking about, that I referenced in conversation and begged other people to read so we could discuss them. If you've read them, I'd love to hear... Continue reading
