Best of 2016 Giveaway Hop

I CAN'T QUITE say that 2016 was my best reading year because even though I've been reading since forever, I've only been documenting my reading experience at FLYLeF for 1+ year. So with only one full year of blogging, I can't rightly say it's my best year—it's actual my only year. But, I can say that 2016 was a very good reading year with many amazing books. It's my pleasure to join the Best of 2016 Giveaway Hop hosted by BookHounds to give one (1) lucky recipient one of my favorite books of 2016 listed below, or a favorite book of their choice published in 2016.

2017 Reading Challenges

I FIND THAT a bit of competition, whether with oneself or peers, is quite fun—even healthy. This year, I've reduced my challenges in anticipation of some new features I hope to launch on the blog. Last September, in my Fall Forward post I introduced FLYTIP, a semi-regular feature where I share tools and tips, and even the occasional digital goodies, to help aspiring bloggers. I'm really excited that I finally have a logo for this feature, to be unveiled in February. I guess in some ways, I've still packed my schedule, but with only three reading challenges, I'll likely not collapse by mid-year. *fingers crossed*
