1. New favorite book blog you discovered in 2016?

2016 was generally not a good year for me in terms of following people and being active, I’m sure I found amazing blogs in the first half of the year, but I honestly don’t remember… Ooops. I think I did start following Cait @Paper Fury in 2016 though, so I’m going with that.


2. Favorite review that you wrote in 2016?

Again… WOW. Guys, do you know that I wrote over 210 reviews on my blog during the year of 2016?! That’s too many for me to remember… I’ll leave 2 very different ones here:

3. Best discussion/non-review post you had on your blog?

I’ve written a few posts that fit this, but again, I’m leaving a few here:


4. Best event that you participated in (author signings, festivals, virtual events, memes, etc.)?

I did a couple of blog tours, but I’m not gonna count them… so, nothing?!

5. Best moment of bookish/blogging life in 2016?

I guess reaching 1000 wordpress followers and hosting my first giveaway.


6. Most challenging thing about blogging or your reading life this year?

I’ve read a lot this year, but my blogging kind of fell a bit. I still posted almost everyday, multiple times really, but my time and patience reduced a bit, so I had a lot of problems in blog hopping and keep up to date with other people’s blogs.

7. Most Popular Post This Year On Your Blog (whether it be by comments or views)?

8. Post You Wished Got A Little More Love?

9. Best bookish discover (book related sites, book stores, etc.)?

Nothing! Damn… eheh.

10.  Did you complete any reading challenges or goals that you had set for yourself at the beginning of this year?


YES! I upped my goodreads challenge a couple of times during the year, but I managed to read even more than I marked the last time, so I’m happy. However I did not finish the PopSugar Reading Challenge, because I decided to read whatever I wanted and that challenge was not a good fit for me.


1. One Book You Didn’t Get To In 2016 But Will Be Your Number 1 Priority in 2017?


2. Book You Are Most Anticipating For 2017 (non-debut)?

4. Series Ending/A Sequel You Are Most Anticipating in 2017?


5. One Thing You Hope To Accomplish Or Do In Your Reading/Blogging Life In 2017?

This year I want:

  • To reach 2000 wordpress followers
  • Be more active on twitter and the bookish community
  • Read more fantasy and Sci Fi than last year
  • Read my backlogged ARCs from Netgalley

    OH MY GOSH! I absolutely loved Archer’s Voice! Definitely one of my favorite book of 2016. Also i’m thinking of starting the ACOTAR series now that the 3rd book will be coming out soon. 😁

  2. taliaredhotink says:

    Great survey! I too loved Him and Us. And BTW, have you read #junkie and #rev by Cambria Hebert? They are the closest thing to the “Him” duet I’ve found 🙂
    P.S.: Archer’s Voice and Wallbanger are two of my all-time fav!

  3. Books 'n' Reviews Oh My says:

    This was great! So many books I haven’t heard of but sound so interesting, I don’t think I’ll ever see the bottom of my TBR pile.

    You’ve read pretty amazing books in 2016! 218 Books??? That’s quite impressive! I’ve read 152 books in 2016 and I’m hoping to read more books in 2017. I loved ACOMAF, The Rose and the dagger, and of course Illuminae. I’ve recently finished Gemina and it was freaking awesome! I haven’t read The Deal yet but I know I’m gonna love it when I get my hands on it. Hope you have a great day! 🙂
