Books. I continue to read way too few of them. 11 in 2017. Pathetic. I really felt like my book count would be higher this year.
This was the year of Persephone. Fully 9 of the books I read in 2017 were her recommendations. She did not let me down. We have similar taste in books, though she is much more of a hopeless romantic than I am, as evinced by the Laini Taylor books. Everyone should right now go read “This Side of Paradise” and “Night” and “The Alchemist”. “Lolita” too, but that’s more daunting than the others. All in all, a very good reading year despite only reading 11 books. Thanks Persephone!
