My 2016 Reading Review

Even though I only read 74 books in 2016 in caparison to 145 books in 2015, it was still a pretty good reading year. I tried some great new authors and read many good books. Besides this, the highlight of 2016 for me is this blog. I started Travelling Through Words and worked on it. I designed my own banner. I posted book reviews and a lot of other posts. I made connections with other bloggers, bookstagrammers and authors. For me, these are the best accomplishments I made this year.

I also completed my 1 year blogging anniversary this month. With this, I want to give a huge thank you to all the people who read my posts, followed my blog, commented on it, liked it and just everyone who supported me. THANK YOU SO MUCH <3

All this said, lets get started with my 2016 reading journey!

  1. Ok. I bought the Cambia Hebert since it’s on Kindle unlimited and the Audio was $2.99. The DAVID Leviathan i bought a year ago and forgot about it. I’ll add it to my Get to Fast list

  2. I love Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series! I haven’t read the Greek Gods and Heroes, along with the Magnus Chase series, but you seem to be enjoying them! Will definitely take a look at them!

    Thank you for the list! 😀
