YiR: 2017 Goodreads Books — Year in Review (YIR)




Goodreads posted everyone’s year in review this past weekend, highlighting all of the books we’ve read. I have a few more to finish, so it’s not complete; however, I thought it would make a good post for today, as I am running around trying to close on last-minute gifts, final Father Figure edits (97% there… will be done on Friday) and meeting a friend for tea, then another for dinner today.

I loved seeing my history of books this last year — since I do enjoy numbers — but also remembering all the wonderful authors, bloggers and reviewers I met through books. Thank you to everyone for all the fun in 2017! I can’t wait to see what 2018 has to offer in the world of books, other than the two of my own I committed to write… am I just glutton for punishment? Oh and the short stories, too. Somebody stop me please. 🙂


About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them.
