My Year in Books

Wednesday, January 3, 2018

In 2017 I read seventy books, which was lower than my intended goal of 80, but I had other pressures on my time. I'm still pretty pleased with 70.

I broke it down a bit:

I read 37 books in either paperback or hardback, and 33 as ebooks.

I read ten books for my two book clubs. Forty of my books were either Young Adult or middle grade books. I read 58 books by or jointly by women, and 14 books by or jointly by men (some books were jointly written you see, which is why this number doesn't add up to 70). I can't believe that I'm skewed so much in favour of books by women, but also I'm not really sorry about that. Women rock.

I really enjoyed lots of the books I read, so special mention goes to:

The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle

Becoming Betty by Eleanor Wood

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Freshers by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison

The Wonder by Emma Donoghue

These are nearly all Young Adult books, and at least two are real stand out examples of the genre. I made my partner read The Hate U Give because I thought it was so amazing. He really liked it too, then he made me watch Boyz n the Hood

I'm going to review all my books this year, too, as I've really enjoyed doing so.
