Partly because I'm a dork, and partly because half the time I can't remember if I've read a particular book, I started tracking my reading a while ago. I have a word document with every book I've read since 2007. Thanks to the GSMC Book Review Podcast this year's total is 105 (unless I finish one more book today). That's my 2nd highest number for books read in a year.
Obviously this isn't 105 books, just a sampling, and a lot of them are from authors I interviewed on the podcast. Someone on Facebook asked me what my favorite title from 2017 is and I responded by asking which one of her children is her favorite. Not that the books are my children, but I have a hard time choosing a favorite. Often the most recent book I've finished is my favorite. Often it depends on what mood I'm in. I reread the Harry Potter series this year (for the millionth time) and that is always one of my favorites. I loved the Menagerie series by Tui T. Sutherland and Kari H. Sutherland and the Jackaby series by William Ritter. And then there are the authors I have had on the podcast and books that I might not have read otherwise. I won't choose a favorite because I have loved some aspect of every book. Thankfully in 2017 I can't think of a single book that I absolutely hated. Here's hoping for the same book luck in 2018.
