2017 on Goodreads

Whether or not you 've had time to write your own reviews, here 's a chance to review your entire 2017 reading and post it under this title so that others can see what your reading year was like. Together, all the reviews of 2017 on Goodreads should make an excitin and varied atalogue of books to inspire other readers in 2018.

For those of you who do n't like to add titles you have n't actually 'read', you can place 2017 on Goodreads on an 'exclusive' shelf. Exclusive shelves do n't have to be listed under 'to read', 'currently reading' or 'read'. To create one, go to 'edit bookshelves' on your 'My Books' page, create a shelf name such as 'review-of-the year' and tick the 'exclusive' box. Your previous and future 'reviews of the wee' can be collected together on this dedicated shelf.

like, I could go to detentio and start my own drug ring or marry bill gates or just sit on this bed for the firs 20 years and there is really just no way to know!! but also I 've really wanted to share a bite sized piece of myself with you guys because I know a lot of you must 've formed opinions on me based on my internet presence and that 's completely valid because it 's still an extention of who I am!!

I 've lived on my own for the third time, paid my own rent, did my grocery shopping, found out that laundry is truly a pain in the ass, slept through so many wake up alarms, took so many wrong buses, made genuine connections with so many people, had a crush on a pretty girl with dark matte lipstick& a denim jacket, cried sitting on the bathroom stall of my college, skipped classes to take a depression nap at 11pm, and was n't too surprised to discover that the olor of my kin and my native tongue are good enough for some ppl to define my worth.It was also the year of making my own hoices.

2017 was the year I let myself feel validated in my queerness.

I 've learned that I do n't need to be assigned who I can love and what it is that I can do or cater to the superfluous sort of binary in the way society thinks about gender.

and I am no longer interested in convincing people that how I feel and who I am is valid and as long as I know my truth and what works for me, that ’ s what matters.

2017 was also the year I have come to know so many people here who have such a warm and kind presence that it genuinely brightens my entire day every time I see/talk to them.

rather than you know.2017 was the year I 've learned that the way people treat you is how they feel about you.

that some " friends " only love themselves through you and will only use you as an audience when their thoughts and desire are needed to be injected somewhere, with no relatio to yours.

it 's also the year that taught me that it 's 100% okay to let people go when they support things that I strongly disagree with, especially when their opinions attack a way of life that I participate in.

I ’ m still learning.but I think the greatest lesson this year has taught me is the inability to say " I 'm a brown queer Muslim woman " without a shred of doubt or shame or hatred and that ’ s omething I ’ ll never take for granted.okay.

so naturally, I 'm going to blame it on goodreads ( listen, 90% of my problems can be somehow traced to this website believe me) since I 'm a human slug and thus ca n't afford the energy to write down every single book I 've read this ear ( in this economy?

Michael ( B+) 77%| Good| ⭐⭐⭐ – 02/14/2017Notes: The writing lacks confidence: drowning narrative in action, cameos and moments, it 's all poster shots and cutscenes.Batman: Battle for the Cowl Companion by Fabian Nicieza, Christopher Yost, David Hine, Royal McGraw and Joe Harris ( B) 74%| More than Satisfactory| ⭐⭐⭐ – 02/20/2017Notes: Closer to a short fiction anthology, its stories are more aptly extensions of other series than the one it 's companion to.Batman: Long Shadows by Judd Winick ( B+) 78%| Good| ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 02/22/2017Notes: Manifests, in ialogue and allegory, an almost theological dispute about the nature, person and constancy of Batman.Batman& Robin: Batman Reborn by Grant Morrison ( A-) 80%| Very Good| ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 02/25/2017Notes: A buddy-cop horror show in pulpy technicolor, it finds voice in freakish foes, bloody violence and twisted reflection.Batwoman: Elegy by Greg Rucka ( A-) 81%| Very Good| ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 03/04/2017Notes: Wherein smokey eyes mean trouble and Mucha-esque art nouveau shines in jagged panels and double-page spreads.Batman: Life After Death by Tony S.

Let ’ s be real, 2017 was kind of a garbage fire year for our world, but at least we had some good books!

I had a pretty good reading year!

I ’ m very happy with the 130 books that I read, and I feel like with each year I get better and better at picking out books, and requesting ARCs, that I am please I will at least enjoy, therefore, my average rating tends to get higher and higher.

This ook taught me that girls can be anything they wish to be, no matter the expectations society, family, and anybody else in this world puts on them.

This nove taught the world that we want black stories, from black authors, with black casts, with lack people on the covers… no matter how many old, racist, white dudes continue to get published.

But this book taught me how much more work needs to be done, and how I need to do ore to boost marginalized voices, and how the world eeds to change and it can begin with me and our generation.# 3.) Tyrant 's Throne ( Greatcoats# 4) by Sebastien de Castell

This nove taught me that found families with unconditional love is the most powerful force in any world.

These books mean a lot to me, and I feel so very thankful, privileged, and blessed that I was reluctant to read them all this year.

I love you all, but these people truly changed my life this year, and I just wanted to give them a special shout out and you should all follow them ( if you ’ re not) to start your 2018 off right! 💗 Paloma became like my best friend this year, and our Snapchat streak is getting pretty intense.

She ’ s charming, entertaining, my book twin, and gives me the best romance recommendations in the world.💗 Elise was totally along for the ride with me and Destiny ’ s buddy reads, too!

💗 Em is like becoming the biggest reviewer on Goodreads, so I hope she remembers me and my love for her when she ’ s iconi.

Not only does he write the best reviewer, read the best ooks, and shows me so much happiness, he also is one of the most talented people I ’ ve ever met.

Joan has helped me with so many reviews this year, while also doing some amazing buddy reads with me.

Also, me and her have like every book in common and if my 2018 isn ’ t filled with buddy reads with her I ’ m just going to cry the entire year away.
