2016 Wrap-Up

goodbye-2016

The year is ending, and as it comes to a close a look back at the year seems only natural. I really tried to blog regularly this year, but I feel that I fell a bit short of my own goals.

Lets take a look at this years blogging stats!

My favourite new (to me) books read in 2016:

I read 36 books this year! The longest was my re-read of Lirael (706 pages), and the shortest was my read of Poet Robot (111 pages).

My most popular posts this year were Akata Witch and Star Wars: The Force Awakens – tied in first place.

I got the most visitors from Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

My top referrers were the WordPress Reader, Facebook, and Search Engines.

My top search terms were daniella writes, opal koboi a villain we love to hate,  and bone gap literacy.

Coming in 2017:

  • Reviews of fanfiction, both quick and in-depth
  • More discussion posts
  • Some of my own original fiction
  • Art, film, game, and comic features
  • More organized blogging! (A schedule even?)

In the new year, I want to strive to be more organized. I want to include more original content and give you an idea of what I’m doing when I’m not reading a novel. Narratives are a huge part of my life – but in various commendable formats that I’d like to write more about. I’ll still be active with NetGalley picks, but I’m also going to try to read all of the books that I already own and have neglected for too long. Be on the lookout for some of my original short fiction as well!

My Favourite Bookish Blogs of 2016:

(I was inspired to do this post by all the wrap up blog posts I’ve seen, but especially the ones at Pages Unbound, and Nut-Free Nerd.)

How was your bookish 2016? Have you made any blogging or reading goals for 2017? Feel free to share in the comments below, and have a Happy New Year!
