2017 A Year in Review (Read-olution and Goodreads Challenge Results) + 2018 Goals

2017 at The Book Ramble has been a small year, with very few reviews, and a lengthy hiatus. Reading is something I’m passionate about, and review books is a hobby of mine that I enjoy but find very time consuming. My job demnds a lot of my time and leaves me with little energy to do much else except try to relax. So I read a lot, but I don’t usually have the energy to review. Unfortunately, I don’t see this changing in 2018 as the business I work for is heading in exciting new directions. I hope that I am still able to deliver you content here that is enjoyable!

Army brat Lois Lane has moved more times than she can count—and has caused just as much trouble righting wrongs no one else seems to notice. Now that her family is in Metropolis for good, though, she’s decided to fly straight. Unfortunately, it won’t be that easy.

Armed with her wit and snazzy new job as a reporter, Lois is determined to help. But this isn’t just a case of cyberbullying—something seriously creepy and dangerous is going on. Thank goodness she can always count on her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy… (Source: Goodreads)

Stacking the Shelves (44)

logo 1

This week I’ll once again be taking part in Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. The idea of Stacking the Shelves is to talk about the books you’ve bought, borrowed, etc. and show off and talk about your purchases and borrows. This is basically the perfect feature for me because I buy way more books, and read way more books, than I’ll ever be able to review. I’ll most likely talk about the stores I bought the books at as well, especially if they’re independent stores.

This meme is once monthly for me, where I’ll round up what I’ve gotten since last month’s post.

This month I purchased 9 books, 10 comics, I received 2 books on NetGalley, 2 books on Edelweiss, 5 books from publishers, 2 books from authors, borrowed 2 books, and was given 3 books. Check them out below!
