Whenever it gets to this time of the year I like to review my reading exploits from the previous 12 months. This time last year I wrote my Most Anticipated Books of 2017 list containing all of the books that I was really excited about. I normally write a huge list of books I’m looking forward to being released and then edit it down to about 15/20 books. It’s a great thing to do because it gives me a whole list of books I need to buy and means I have a handy guide to the books I haven’t read. I managed a whopping 4 from my list of 17 this year. A whole book more than I managed to read from my 2016 list. Please, hold your applause. No need for a standing ovation. No, I’m not a hero. So, yeah, I kind of fucked up but that won’t stop me writing another goddamn list. Maybe I’ll make it all the way up to 5 in 2018? Probably not but at least writing this keeps me busy for a bit.
