My TBR Jar Tasks Completed In 2016

In the beginning of 2016, I made a post called My Reading More Diversely Jar/ My Ultimate TBR Jar. Basically, I made a list of all the books that I wanted to read and a lot of reading tasks that i wanted to do to make myself try new authors and genres. I cut them into little slips and put them into a jar.

My 2016 Reading Review

Even though I only read 74 books in 2016 in caparison to 145 books in 2015, it was still a pretty good reading year. I tried some great new authors and read many good books. Besides this, the highlight of 2016 for me is this blog. I started Travelling Through Words and worked on it. I designed my own banner. I posted book reviews and a lot of other posts. I made connections with other bloggers, bookstagrammers and authors. For me, these are the best accomplishments I made this year.

I also completed my 1 year blogging anniversary this month. With this, I want to give a huge thank you to all the people who read my posts, followed my blog, commented on it, liked it and just everyone who supported me. THANK YOU SO MUCH ❤

All this said, lets get started with my 2016 reading journey! (more…)

Because we are still fools groping in the dark, looking for any sort of guidance that can be provided.”
