Book round up of 2016

Friday, December 30, 2016

Because I'm a total nerd, I made a few stats about the books I've read this year.

I've read 81 books, which is 13 more than the 68 I managed in 2015. In 2015 I set myself a goal of 50 books, and obviously smashed that, so this year I upped my goal to 70 books. I've smashed that, too! However, I think for 2017 I'll keep my goal at 70 books, or maybe 75. I don't think I'll manage to read many more, even though I'd like to.

Of those 81 books, 35 were paperbacks, including ones I own, ones I borrowed, and ones I got out from the library. 36 were eBooks and were a combination of ones I bought and ones I requested on NetGalley. 8 were hardcover and were again a mixture of ones I bought and ones I borrowed. Two were audiobooks and these were both borrowed from the library.

Of the 81, the vast majority by over half were Young Adult books - 48, in fact. A further 8 were either kids books or middle grade books (where, for instance, I personally place the Wells & Wong novels). 16 books were general adult fiction. 9 were crime novels, which is my second favourite genre but which I've totally neglected this year!

I'm looking forward to 2017 for many reasons. I want to write more, and read more, and maybe read Tumblr less. I've got a few books already on my January TBR and, well, watch this space...


  1. I had a dream to master this profession too but my writing skills have not given this dream come true. That's why I still use uk essay writing services to write quality texts.

  2. This is the book I am going to read, but now I don't have enough time unfortunately. I have a lot of things to do, and especially to write an essay using uk essay writing service.Thanks!

  3. Speaking about internet and technologies these days. It helps us live easier. Like now I store my paperwork in a virtual deal room. I know it's safe for sure.
