8th Annual End Of Year Survey – 2017 edition!!


Best books of 2017

My silly little survey I created for myself to highlight what I read in 2010 suddenly grew when a bunch of others jumped in and has turned into such a fun end of year event that I have LOVED hosting and has made my TBR list grow immensely! I didn’t count last year (morning sickness hell) but the year before 360+ people linked up last year and I know even more participated on their blogs and on Youtube!! So without further ado: the 8th annual End of Year Book Survey!

So feel to fill this out whenever you feel like it (please link back to this post/credit me)…whether that’s today or in January   — I know everybody will want to reflect at different points! Feel free to link up and share your End of Year Book Survey and visit others on the list!

I’m still up in the air if I’m going to fill it out because I didn’t read A TON this year but I’ll look over my list of what I read closer to January.


Note: The survey is for books you read throughout the year, no matter when they were published, and is not limited to just books that came out in 2017!!

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.
