Books Akotowaa has read in 2017

Hey, readers, lexivists and all the other weird people who care enough to keep up with my life! Last year, I had a page where I kept a log of all the books I was reading (Books Akotowaa has read in 2016). For 2017, I’m continuing this on a new blog page. I’ll update this page as and when I finish books. Hopefully in 2017 I will not only read more, but blog more about the books themselves. So, cheers to 2017. 🙂
