Book Year Review

It is a little bit weird, I give many stars to some books, but in the end of the year I have different favorites.

Favorite photos of the Instagram challenges:

I participated in the booktember, bookstober and bookxmas instagram challenges. I had to take one book-related photo following the rule of every day (for the months of September, October and December).

Did I achieve my 2016 book-ish resolutions?

You can find the post here. My resolutions were:

1. Finish the 2016 readathon. I said I will read 52 books, but I will try to finish all the categories (64 books) Finished 52 but not 64!

2. Read (for the first time):

3. Read:

4. Read some of my cognitive science books Nope!

5. Have lots of fun reading! Done!

 

 

 

That was it for 2016!

Readathon17 is already out with 80 categories!

Hopefully I will have time to write a post with my book-ish resolutions for next year.

      1. Δεν σκεφτόμαστε από τώρα το αύριο! 😛
        Η αφεντιά μου “κοιτάζει” να ζήσει το τώρα της όσο μπορεί καλύτερα και όσο πιο συνειδητά γίνεται, εξ’ άλλου με τόσες επιλογές βιβλίων που προτείνεις και δραστηριοτήτων, δεν της μένει και πολύς χρόνος για μελλοντικά σχέδια ή όνειρα! 😉
