End of the Year Survey

Perpetual Page Turner has created a survey that covers an entire year of reading! This is deff one of the more thorough surveys that I have seen floating around, but I kind of like that! The fact that she created this for herself 8 years ago, and it has taken off since then is absolutely amazing.

Without further ado…

Number Of Books You Read: 47
Number of Re-Reads: 1
Genre You Read The Most From: Unsure

“Look around you” he says, waving a hand at the surrounding tables. “Not one of them even has an inkling of the things that are possible in this world, and what’s worse is that none of them would listen if you attempted to enlighten them. They want to believe that magic is nothing but clever deception, because to think it real would keep them up at night, afraid of their own existence.”

“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words.”

  1. I feel like I really need to read The Hate U Give! I’ve seen so many great reviews for that one and it’s on my list. I see that you mentioned The Night Circus and Ready Player One a few times and those are two of my favorites so if you love those, I really need to read The Hate U Give!
