100 Books for 2017

TOne of my favorite authors, V.E. Schwab, tweeted that she would be reading 100 books in a year. I thought I would give myself the same goal. Not necessarily to finish the goal but mainly to document which books I’m reading and seeing what reading habits I have. My personal rating will be listed next to the book title. Books I reread won’t be documented on this list.

Print books are documented with one * and e-books are documented with two **.

Rating System

I rate books based on how much I liked it and how unique I thought the story was. So, if you don’t like the same books I do then my rating system probably isn’t that reliable for you!

  • 5 Stars: This book was awesome! Definitely one of my favorite books.
  • 4 Stars: This book was pretty good. Would re-read but not necessarily a favorite.
  • 3 Stars: This book was okay. Enjoyed the book but didn’t see anything special or new.
  • 2 Stars: This book was okay. Didn’t enjoy the book.
  • 1 Stars: I didn’t enjoy the book at all. Would definitely not re-read and may have stopped before finishing the book.
