Book Round Up of 2023

Thursday, January 11, 2024

How many books read in 2022?

98. I would have liked to get to a hundred, but didn't quite. Then I would quite like to have finished the 99th book, but I was really busy over Christmas and New Year, as we all are, so I didn't get it finished until the 2nd of January. Oh well! 

How many were on paper and how many electronic?

I read about 45 paperbacks, about 15 hardbacks, and about 37 ebooks. I've obviously counted wrong but I utterly can't be bothered going back over it because I've been trying to write this post for like a week and it's doing my head in, so I would like it to just be finished! And one audiobook. I had a couple of months when I mostly read ebooks because I was on holiday and find it easier to take my tablets on holiday than a bunch of paper books. I am hoping to listen to more audiobooks in 2024!

Fiction/Non-Fiction ratio?

I think I read nine non fiction books, including an autobiography and a biography. I actually really enjoyed the non fiction I read in 2023 even though I don't often choose it. Two of the non fiction books were for book club

Male/Female authors?

As far as I can see, I read twenty two books by men solely. I read a couple by non binary authors and a few men were included in books of short stories too, I think. 

Most books by a single author?

It's probably still Elly Griffiths. Oh no, I only read two by her. I also read two by Stacy Halls and two by Janice Hallett, I think. 

Favourite book(s) read?

One of my favourites had to be Silas Marner by George Eliot. I also really liked The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O'Farrell. My mum liked it too so I'll lend her other things by Maggie for sure as I love her. 

Least favourite?

I think Only for the Holidays which I reviewed recently, it just didn't live up to my expectations. 

Oldest book read?

Silas Marner, for sure. It was published in 1861!!! My goodness. 


A couple of the last books I read aren't published until 2024, so either Where the Heart Should Be by Sarah Crossan, or The Winter Visitor by James Henry. 

Longest book title?

The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels I think, by Janice Hallett 

Shortest title?

Rizzio by Denise Mina, I think 

How many re-reads?

I am honestly not sure that I reread any books. It's not something I generally do as there are always new books to get to! I have so many!

Any in translation?

Heatwave by Victor Jestin was I think the only one. It was originally in French. 

How many of this year's books were from the library?

Fourteen, I think. But believe me when I say I already have a LOT of books!
