This Is How We Read

How has your reading year been? What types of books have you read? How much? Here’s how our bookish year unfolded.

Tanya – My reading year has been quite mixed – some months I couldn’t finish a book, and others, I averaged more than my usual 1 book / week target.

No. of books read so far: 42 – my goal is 50-52 books for the year

✺ Genre That Got the Most Love:

  • Science Fiction – 11 – As much as I say I don’t like science fiction, I sure read a lot of it! Space Operas That Rock
  • Mystery / Thriller – 6
  • Horror (Vampires & Zombies) – 6

✺ How I Read: Audiobooks – 26; physical books – 12; eBooks – 4

✺ Month I Read the Most: January – I finished nothing!

✺ Month I Read the Least: March and May I read 6 books – although December is usually the month I double down (last Dec. it was 7 books)

✺ When I Read: When I can. I usually read in spurts – although I’d love to say I read a few minutes every day, it usually doesn’t happen. Winter Reading Rituals

✺ Fave Books of the Year (Just a Hint): As usual, I have quite a few favorites – but a hint to one of my favorites is that Kim also read it this year as one of the 2016 Monthly Motif Challenges.

Kim – What an interesting reading year for me! This is one of my lowest reading years ever. However, most of what I read turned out to be a 4 or 5 star book. So I’d say that even though I didn’t finish many books, I had one of my best years yet because everything was so good.

✺ No. of books read so far: 45with a goal to read 50 books. This total is misleading though. See below.

✺ Genre That Got the Most Love:

  • Graphic Novel/Comic – 11 So my total finished books includes these 11 comics. I actually read 34 ‘books.’ 
  • Mystery – 8
  • Fantasy -13
  • Dystopia – 5

✺ Month I Read The Most/Least: It seems I read about three books per month. I haven’t finished any in November.

✺ How I Read: I’m about 50/50 when it comes to audiobooks versus print books. I tend to buy my audiobooks through Audible and borrow my print books from the library. I didn’t buy any new print books this year.

    I came across this at another blogger site and thought it looked like fun- sorry, I’m completely off on the date.

    I love both of your lists! The oddest thing i noticed was that the month I read the least was September- which is such a big release month, so I have no idea why. Also, it was fun to track format because I finally gave in and got a Kindle so had e-book stats!

    Thanks for doing this and happy holidays!

  3. Thanks for hosting this again for 2016.

    I had so much fun last year.

    I can’t believe I missed the first two days. I need a bell to ring so I remember things. LOL!!
