Phew! What a great year! To participate in this meme, visit this blog post at BiteIntoBooks to learn more!


  1. Looks like you had a great reading year! I wish I had as many 5-star ratings as you, this year wasn't the greatest reading year for me.

    1. I certainly did! Phew! I hope you have a better reading year in 2018 <3

  2. Wow impressive list! Hope you have a great 2018 :)

    Amy @ A Magical World Of Words

    1. Thank you! I hope you have a lovely 2018 as well!

  3. Ooh fun tag. And 185 books is awesome! I loved big Little Lies, and I need to get to Artemis. That one sounds so good...

    I've heard good things about Fables too but have never read them.

    1. :-D I hope you enjoy Artemis and Fables as much as I did! I gotta snag the second volume of Fables soon!

  4. Oh my! What a year! 41,000+ pages is awesome!!

    1. It's so crazy! I'm so impressed with myself haha! :) Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Looks like you've had a fantastic year, Erica!

  6. I can't believe you've read a book with just one other Goodreads reader; that's very cool ;) my least popular book was Ladders to Fire by Anais Nin, which I think had 800 or so; which is few considering it's rather old. but it was a GORGEOUS book. I truly don't know why it's underappreciated <3

  7. I always love Goodreads Year in Books feature It's such a fun way to look at what we've read in the past year!

    Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

    1. I agree! I always see things that I had totally forgotten about while checking it out :)

  8. Thanks for participating, I love your stats and what a GREAT list of books! I hope 2018 is going to be just as good for you :)
