Goodread’s Year in Books Review

So lots of things happened this year, and I’m not going to get into most, but know that I became a full-time librarian/cataloger this year and I read a boatload of books. 93 to be exact.

Yes, that’s an insane number, and a majority are considered juvenile easy readers because I can read them while checking them over before checking them in. Some were really cute. Some were meh. I read a lot of graphic novels/manga this year too.

Goals for next year. More “big people” books. I’ve got about 20 out from the library that would be amazing starts for my 2018 list.

Check out the Goodread’s link at the top of the post to see the books I’ve read this year.

Some favorites:

  • Ghosts
  • I Work at a Public Library
  • 7 ate 9
  • Ms. Marvel- No Normal
  • A Million Ways to Die in the West (tip: watch the movie first)


Book I didn’t like, and ironically it was a kids book titled Miffy at the Library. This book is all sorts of wrong. I know it was trying to teach colors and stuff, but you do not absolutely tell children, arrange the kids books of the library by color. Do you realize how many kids can potentially try that? Keeping the stacks organized is tough enough without a book telling kids something different than the standard library way of organizing their stacks.

Overall, it was a really good book year for me, and I hope to keep up my momentum in 2018.

Have a wonderful new year readers!
