    1. One of my most FAQ of 2016 was "how do you read so many books?" Maybe the 9-page count ^ has something to do with it XD2016 has been a real mixed bag of highs and lows for me, both with books and in "real life". This year saw the birth of my baby boy, and a more permanent move to the United States. But I also dealt with a cancer scare and, of course, there has been an increasingly disturbing political climate in both my home country and my current country of residence, as well as the deaths of m [...]


    2. Greetings and best holiday- whichever one you celebrate- and New Years wishes to all my friends. This year I moved from being a stay at home mom primarily reading mysteries and fun books with my kids to a reader who reads a wide variety of genres. No longer do I make my weekly trip to the library, clueless as to what to read next. I attribute this to being active on and to joining groups such as catching up on classics, the southern lit trail, and African American historical fiction. I have re [...]


    3. This was a fantastic year for reading for me. I started reading some classic Batman and Daredevil comics (and keeping up with TWD, Saga, Low, Descender, and Rick and Morty in graphic novels) before a long phase of baroque/classical/romantic composers' biographies which led me to a huge transformation of how I listen to music. I especially loved biographies about Bach, Haendel, Mozart and Beethoven.I finally finished (and loved) Infinite Jest and went on to digest nearly all of Bellow, all of Pyn [...]


    4. I didn't choose to write any comments when introduced this new feature at the end of 2015. Immediately after reading a couple of my friends comments- which were enjoyableI felt satisfied. Many of their favorite books were my favorite books - so I didn't feel any burning desire - need - or pull to add anything more. I have something to share this year. At the bottom of the page you'll see a list of books I read - not all - but books I'm REALLY GLAD I READ!!! I enjoyed every book I've posted on t [...]


    5. Oh 2016. do I love/hate thee?Let me count the ways.Several people asked me if I planned on doing one of these "Year in Review" deals so I figured, why not? I have no clue what to write here really I figureFuck it.I'm just gonna let it ride with some stream of consciousness ish and offend some people, (since that seems to happen with anything I write these days), no?So let's begin. ***2016 has been one FUCKED UP year for the ages, has it not?On the social frontPolitical correctness has become so [...]


    6. ► Writing this post puts a taste of failure in my mouth. Of change. Of disappointment. Since 2014 I've been very active on and the truth is, I've enjoyed these times so much. I mean, reading books, writing reviews, playing with Photoshop to create pictures, fangirling about books I love, ranting about fucking messes of books, what could be possibly better? Yet I will remember 2016 for the year when I grew out of it. I could explain my sensation of not belonging here anymore with several reaso [...]


    7. 2016 has been another great reading year!I've read so much and my to read list has practically doubled. Every time I read a book I swear I find at least three I want to read. I will never finish my list; it perpetually grows, so all I can do is read as much as possible as I travel through life. But in the process I find even more niches I want to explore. Recently I’ve delved into Buddhism, though at the moment I have a stack of books on marathon running that need to be read. There’s just so [...]


    8. This has been a wickedly fantastic year for reading. I decided early on I would gravitate to those GR friends whom seem to have very similar tastes. They did not let me down. Thanks to , I've had fewer bad reads and am much more selective on what I spend my time reading.Not only that, I've learned to utilize my library system which may be borderline abusive. Requesting they buy books, requesting if they don't carry them to have them transferred in from another city, putting holds on my holds! Be [...]

    10. Hi everybody.Jaidee here !!I am mostly going to use the format I did last year but since its still early in December it may be modified as I complete new books until the end of the December.I mostly love but am much less active due to work and personal commitments and I apologize for not reading all the reviews that I would have liked to have read. I have met some fabulous new virtual buddies this year and that makes me feel really happy.Unfortunately I have also been unfriended by some people [...]


    11. 2016 on was both the best of times and the worst of times for me. There were some great books, but it was also a year marked by tragic events that seriously affected my reading.First, my mother died of cancer. (Writing those words still guts me: My. Mother. Died.) The ominous sign that 2016 was going to be a rough year was when my mom had a seizure and collapsed on Dec. 31, 2015, so I spent New Year's Eve and New Year's Day at the hospital with her. The book I carried with me was Jane Austen's [...]


    12. Instead of chatting about the books I’ve read this year I’d rather celebrate the people that bring me such pleasure each day, my circle of friends on GoodReads. Most of you I know only through your participation here. The following is a hodge-podge mix of thoughts about who you are to me. I’m not going to call you out by name though I’ll bet some of you will recognize yourself. I can’t possibly list all of you but each of you has contributed to my tbr lists in some way. When I see your [...]


    13. December isn't over yet so there may be more books added to this list. I don't think I did this last year so I'm doing it now. My friend "Elyse" made me feel inspirational in writing my own feelings here and listing some books. I'm only going to list favorites or ones I loved because I have read almost 400 books. A lot being graphic novels and other short books. This opens the topic that I hate more than anything. I have posted on my profile not to ask me how I read so many books, because I'm ho [...]


    14. Update Now what am I to do? I've thought of what I want to write for 2016 (I gave up on 2015 it was frying my brain) but I've got nowhere to write it since I filled this review up with excusesSo if I can't find anywhere to write it, I just won't bother. I sort of feel a sigh of relief washing over me after that. It's like giving up a diet (for the night) and fetching out the half bar of chocolate solid in the freezer.______Original 'review I'm still at the thinking stage of how to sum up the boo [...]


    15. 2015 - /review/show2014 - /review/showi am finally getting a chance to wrangle my reading year into shape and to read other people's 2016 breakdownsd 'breakdowns' is rightis year seems to have been a shitty one for many folks, and mine was no better.i had back surgery, my employment/financial situation remains wobbly despite having TWO jobs, this was the year my beloved maggie:was diagnosed with cancer, and she is still kicking its ass. it was also the year i shelved my dignity to beg the intern [...]


    16. Thanks to all GoodReads friends for their comments and reviews, and for reading my reviews. Thank you for sharing your insights and for inspiring me to leave my comfort zone and read books that I would not normally have read. It also meant that I read more four and five star books than usual, and I discovered authors new to me. Some friends left and are missed; others were gained and have enriched my life. 2016 was a strange year for me. It was all about the mood of the moment. I didn't read wha [...]

    18. Okay, it's that time of year again. Here are my prizes for books first read in 2016, split up by category:New languagesI thought I'd see if I could read books in Russian and Italian - I did a couple of years of Russian at school during the 70s, and my mother is Italian, though she never taught me her language. How hard could it be? Answer: Italian does in fact seem pretty easy, though so far I've only read a few children's books. Russian is considerably harder! I did however manage to get throug [...]


    19. 2016 may have sucked ass for the world in general, but it was actually a great year for me in terms of reading. And isn’t my happiness the really important thing?The usual suspects delivered in all the ways that I’ve come to expect from them. John Sandford provided new Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers thrillers with Extreme Prey and Escape Clause. My other two book a year guy is Ace Atkins, and he added to his trend with Slow Burn and The Innocents. The authors who make up the James S.A. C [...]


    20. ها قد شارفت هذه السنة على الانتهاء، وإنّي لاعتبرها سنة سعيدة ومجيدة على صعيد القراءة ونوعية الكتببدأت هذه السنة بترك عملي وبناءً على ذلك توقّعت بأن يصبح لدي ما يكفي من الوقت لقراءة المزيد من الكتب.وقد بدأت بقراءة كتاب:حيونة الإنسان – ممدوح عدوان استكمالاً لمشروع كنت قد وعدت [...]

    22. 2016 was a big year for me. I read a crazy amount of books, the second highest number since I started keeping track. I joined Marvel Unlimited. Oh, and I visited Headquarters.While I've already written up The 2016 Dantastic Book Awards, I read many more notable books than I could work into the awards. The Black Dahlia, The Big Nowhere, Radiance, Last Days, A Pretty Mouth, and Bait were all quality reads. I discovered authors like James Renner and Hunter Shea, and read new books by old favorites [...]


    23. If I thought that 2015 was a good reading year for me, examining 2016's readings I dazzled myself. It's not the number of books I read, 160!, but rather what I read. I don’t know how it all begun, maybe it all started with the amazing 'Death with Interruptions', which inspired me towards another masterpiece. But why question my good fortune? Thus, 2016 was an excellent reading year and I could not feel better about it. I read amazing books, how could I not when I focused mainly on the classics [...]


    24. Favourite read of the year – The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. I was unprepared for how much I loved this. Worst read of the year - Some Luck. This is what a novel looks like when the author can't come up with a single drop of inspiration. The equivalent of someone cleaning a house that is already spotless. OCD writing. If you don’t have any inspiration find something else to do. Favourite character – Lila in Ferrante’s Neapolitan series. A woman who makes no concessions to [...]


    25. So far I have read 302 books and I'm sure I will get a few more in before the year is up. So this year in books was good but not as great as last year. Last year I found a ton of books that I just fell in love with. That I really connected with. This year was more of a middle road for me. I gave more 3, 2, and 1 stars this year then all my years rating books combined. I did my first DNF ever this year. Anyone that knows me knows I have OCD so the fact that I dnfed a book is a huge deal. I did a [...]


    26. I'm up to 272 books this year, so narrowing it down to 16 wasn't easy for me. I loved so many books I read this year and could have easily made a top 20, 30, or 40, but these are my absolute favorites <3 2016 may have been a shit year in a lot of ways, but it's been an amazing reading year for me so cheers to that! I know this is about all my books on , but I really like to use it as a reference to all my favorites! 1- The Silent Waters by Brittainy C. Cherry. No surprise there. Brittainy has [...]


    27. سال نوی گودریدزی ها، این موقع هاست، که گودریدز پر میشه از دید و بازدیدهای کاربرها از چالش های تموم شده ی همدیگه و سالنامه ی کتابخوانی، و صد البته "سال خود را چگونه گذراندید".خب، امسال چی کار کردمدو تا چیز به ذهنم می رسه.یکی، خیلی از کتاب هایی که مدت ها بود می خواستم بخونم ولی به ن [...]


    28. *takes a deep breath* Where do I even start? Although I'm not as active on this page, I still love and most of its users. To quote Bilbo Baggins, "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."It has been quite a year. I have completed my reading challenge. I was very reluctant to enter the challenge for several reasons. I don't like the pressure of having to read. Who really cares how many books I've read so far? Is there [...]


    29. I just love , and so enjoy the virtual friends that I have met here. So many of you have led me to some amazing books, this year has been the best in books!! I actually need to stop checking the updates so often, I think I would get more actual reading done, but I don't want to miss anything :)I'm going to list my favorites I have read this year only, in no particular order, and there were so many exceptional ones!!! These were my 5 star reads.The Signal FlameChristodoraThe NestSweetgirlOnly Lov [...]


    30. What a lovely book year! I joined five years ago, but I became an active member much later. On 2015, I started writing reviews, shy and a little intimidated. On 2016, I craved it. I lived for those wonderful moments, when my fingers touched the keyboard and started pouring words. I've been able to lose and find myself in books since I was a child, but lately I realized that sharing this love somehow intensifies it. I am truly honored to be a member of this close-knit book community, a place whe [...]
