Hello all! I’m doing another of my annual traditions today and sharing my stats from the year! Let’s get to it!
Now forgive me, this is the part where I get really geeky with statistics…
My ratings are a little down (they were 3.55 in 2017 and 3.66 in 2018), but I think this kind of variation is to be expected. I’m still happy I’m not choosing too many 1-2 banana books. When it comes to the types of books I’ve been picking, it’s somewhat of a mixed bag. One of the most interesting things to note this year were the couple of cross-genre books- some worked (Evelyn Hardcastle) others didn’t (Behind Her Eyes). Other than that, however, my tastes have remained quite consistent. Classics have been static (at 13% for the last three years!); fantasy was about the same as last year (34% again). Most significantly, YA is down from 47% last year to 40% this year (which I’d say is more like my yearly average and last year was a bit of a blip). Of course, given I’ve read considerably more books this year (last year I read 165), I’ve technically read more YA books in total 😉 Still, what I’m most excited about is that I somehow managed to read 15 non-fiction books- when I usually have to challenge myself to manage ten!! And while I don’t have the stats for this (I didn’t have the forethought to take note when I only listened to a couple a year 😉), there have definitely been more audiobooks (18 this year!)
A quick read about funny football stories 😊
An absolute SLOG!
Two this year, because it seems fitting to show a little balance:
I only DNF’d Otherworld- which is ridiculous- I need to get better at this!
Yeah I can understand that.
So undeserved! My goodness- this book deserves more love!
And, to reflect my new reading habits, I had to include this new category, just so I could recommend these audiobooks…
And that’s a wrap! Do you keep track of your stats? How have your ratings been this year? Let me know in the comments!
