2017 Awards & Superlatives!

This sure was a busy reading year for me! I read 274 books in 2017, totaling about 54,927 pages. Whoa. It was actually less than I had thought I would read, but I also did quite a bit of writing this year. I even took some time off, here and there, from both reading and writing to spend with my family (mostly playing video games!). It was a pretty great year. 

Among the books I read, there were some surprises and a few flops. I started some new series and finished a few others. I laughed and I cried, and everything in between. So for a recap of 2017, I will be awarding superlatives to the books on last year's shelf. These are just for fun and if you'd like to join in and share your own, the more the merrier!

One rule: Books cannot be used for more than one superlative/award. The only exceptions are the Best Series and Leading Ladies/Lads categories. This means there won't be repeats of the same books over and over. But don't worry, I had plenty of favorites for each category!
