The average rating for the books I read was 4.05 stars per book, broken down as follows:
- 5 stars - 26 books
- 4 stars - 36 books
- 3 stars - 22 books
The 4.05 stars average was an increase from the 3.93 stars per book in 2016.
In January, I said that I would make a conscious effort to tackle the books I already own on my TBR list. My goal was to read at least two books that I already own each month for a total of 24 this year, and I surpassed that goal with 33 books read.
The ratings for these books were distributed as follows:
- 5 stars - 7 books
- 4 stars - 16 books
- 3 stars - 10 books
The average rating for my TBR books was 3.91, a bit lower than the ratings for the other books I read this year. Perhaps there was a good reason I had put off reading them. :-) Nevertheless, I need to continue chipping away at my TBR, so I plan to continue reading at least two books that I already own each month throughout 2018 as well.
In my next post, I’ll list my top ten favorite books of 2017. Stay tuned!
