    • Books on your bookcase (1st book on the top left and last book on the bottom right):
      • True confession? I actually don’t have a bookshelf. I had one built into my college apartment but now I’m home visiting and I’m moving in 3 weeks so……yeah
  • Most disappointing & biggest pleasant surprise:
    • Disappointing was the Uglies series.
    • Pleasant was Small Great Things because it very accurately captures reality and I appreciate that
  • Fandom you joined & one you abandoned:
    • I guess I’ve joined the Shadowhunter fandom
    • Haven’t abandoned one
  • Series you picked up & series you quit:
    • Picked up The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments
    • I should have quit Uglies
  • Most lenient & harshest ratings:
    • All of my ratings are completely honest, I don’t do lenient and I’m not going to lie about my opinion.
  • Most hyped & furthest under the radar that you read:
    • Most hyped might be Uglies
    • Under my radar was Shatter Me. Only read it because a friend said I should


  • First…
    • Post of 2016This or That? #21 Conclusion
    • Review of 2016: The Pact by Jodi Picoult
  • Last…
    • Post of 2016: Probably this one!
    • Review of 2016: City of Bones
  • Number of posts in 2016: No clue but when my year in review post is made, I’ll let you know
  • Number of reviews posted this year: 33
  • Least coherent review: I don’t really know if I have any lol
  • Post with the most views (posted in 2016): Rae’s Rules #7: I Respectfully disagree. It was shared not only on WP but but a bunch of my classmates after our school news paper released an article about being “PC”
  • Post you wish you could re-write: None. It is what it is

So there we have it. Pretty good year for the most part. I didn’t meet my goal of 50 but there was a lot of crap going on this year and when I’m low on spoons I fall asleep instead of read. So, not too bad overall.
