Suko said...

You are a great reader, Tracy! I will keep your selections in mind, especially the books you enjoyed the most (books of the month).

That's an impressive list, Tracy!

I see some I've read, some that are currently in my TBR pile, and some are on my wish list.

I'm always very optimistic about my reading at this point in the year.

Job well done!

Tracy,
It is definitely a wonderful
achievement and impressive
list! I also appreciated how
you shared your favourite
covers. And perhaps I may
revisit several of your
reviews of 2016.

Brian Joseph said...

This is a very impressive list both in quantity and quality. As usual, I am jealous over the number of books that you have read ")


Happy reading in 2017!

Nikki-ann said...

A good collection of books there. You did really well with your reading in 2016... I'm so behind!

Sherry Ellis said...

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Oh good book year for you and I also like those covers. Hope this year goes well for you reading wise and otherwise. :)

Charlie (The Worm Hole) said...

I make that an even hundred; excellent, Tracy!

So many books, so little time said...

I read We Need To Talk About Kevin, Game Of Thrones and have THE CUCKOO'S CALLING & the Taxidermists daughter (went to the book launch for this) on my tbr. Great list. Are you doing the £1 book jar this year? xxx

Hi Tracy,

That's an impressive tally and puts my paltry handful to shame. You also had an excellent mix of titles and genres.

I see that you have made a flying start to your 2017 reading challenge, so Good Luck with that :)
