2016 Wrap Up

So I decided to do my 2016 wrap up a bit differently from my monthly wrap ups. Usually I separate the books I own or borrowed from the library and read, from the ARCs and review copies that I received from publishers. For this wrap up, I think I am going to categorize them by what I rated them and the books are in no particular order! I read a total of 158 books this year, according to Goodreads!
