Danse Macabre by Laura M. Hughes
My first review of the year

As always my full review can also be found on my blog: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress…

This is a stunning read, in just 56 pages Hughes crafts a fully fledged story with a captivating main character in Blue and a fitting if somewhat tragic ending. Being a novella you know that words and space are to a premium and Hughes utilizes these perfectly, giving you a tale that keeps you intrigued, guessing and mesmerised. It’s dark and ominous wit …more

My last review of the year

As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress…

I received a free copy of this book courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I’ve never read a book by Brent Weeks before! I know, I know, I fully expect some haughty derision from all you fantasy fans out there! He’s an author I’ve heard many good things about but have never managed to get around to reading until n …more

  1. wow 53 books is actually a lot well done and the amount of pages is brilliant, better than seeing the amount of books! Congratulations great year in books, hope you continue to enjoy it next year 🙂 By the way do you ever set yourself a reading challenge on Goodreads?

    1. Is the reading challenge the amount of books you hope to read? If so then yeah, I do. It was for 35 books this year and will probably be around the same next year too. I hardly ever bother with Goodreads and prefer a low goal I’ll achieve than a high goal I’ll fail at.

      1. I did that this year, put a goal that was bigger than last year, of course last year I read lots of very short books on my other blog, this year I’ve read longer books and done other things so I failed my Goodreads Challenge by a long way. You’re right, better to put a low goal than a higher one, or not even have a goal if it’s something that can upset you to not achieve.

  2. Quite the year it was! But.. that shortest book you’ve read… LOL Your curiosity was piqued huh? 😛 Also amazing how high your average rating is. Glad to know you’ve went through great books this year sir. Here’s to even better books in 2018!

    1. I’m very picky about what I read which is why the average is very high and lucked out with only a few poor reads this year. I guess I’m a slow reader and if I read double the amount of books then I’d probably be a lot unluckier with them and the rating would be lower.

      Yeah, my interest was piqued! When I was doing the fun and inappropriate book covers posts there was a few that were free on the Kindle and I picked that one just for a laugh. Not surprised it was the shortest book, it was bound to make it onto the challenge somehow, damn book!😂😂

  3. I joined Goodreads this year so I can’t exactly say how many I read. I have decided not to do the challenge because I would be reading instead of working to pass a goal and that is not good.

  4. This is so cool – I wanted to share my year in books report on my blog but couldn’t figure out how to make it display. Yours looks so nice!

    1. Thanks. I saw quite a few and couldn’t figure it out either then I just tried a copy and paste of the Goodreads page and it surprisingly worked!😂 I had to edit it very slightly, remove a couple of gaps, bolden some font but just copying and pasting it worked.👌
