My Year in Books – 2017

My Year in Books 2017


When the year started I thought that I would read a lot more books this year, but I still set the same goal as 2016 (50 books). Then life happened and things did not turn out as I had thought.

The result… (last year’s results in parenthesis)

– 46 read books, goal not met (57 books)

– 63% crime fiction (89%)

– 59% Swedish authors (63%)

– 65% female authors (58%)


I read less crime fiction this year than I usually do. For different reasons I have had a hard time reading about evil and people (especially children) being treated badly. It is no surprise that I prefer Swedish authors and just like last year I read mostly female authors.


Happy New Book Year!
