Happy New Year everyone! I hope this year brings us nothing but joy and happiness. May we accomplish all our goals this year including those we failed to accomplish in 2016. Speaking of goals, I set a goal of 60 books in 2016 inspired by the 59 books I read in 2015 but I came very short of this goal. Life happened and I got busy with different things so I was only able to read 22 books. Most of the 22 books I read were African fictions. 2016 was my first time really getting into and reading a lot of African fictions. My favorite genre was crime and mystery. I discovered a lot of great authors and great books.
