2017 End of Year Book Survey

I haven't mentioned this all week, I'm not even sure if I've let myself think it, but these have been my final end of year posts. I'm only blogging for four more months. That means I will never have a Top Ten Books of the Year, (which might be a good thing because I would stress trying to narrow down that list), or share a yearly playlist (though technically I'll still be making the playlist) or join the End of Year Book Survey again.

That doesn't make me as emotional as I thought it might. Oh well moving on.
