This is the end ….
And that’s when I want to play Skyfall by Adele LOL
Last day of our Blogmas2019, daily posts and I did it alongside several of you! Lucy, Tanya, Em, Talia, HeroesinBooks, Lydia, Mae… thank you for playing with me!
Today is all about our past year. What does your year in books look like? Did you meet your challenges? Have you found a new genre to love? Began something new? How many books have you read?
Let’s see what Goodreads says about my life in books!
This year I have read 136 books so far! 36 more than my goal and more than I read in 2018 and 2017.
Here is a quick look (with a magnifier LOL) of all my reads and ratings
My average rating is 4,8.
Some will say that I am easy to please and …maybe! I like to think that I choose my books wisely and am rarely disappointed LOL
This year, two novelties: audiobooks and historical fiction!
I never listened to an audiobook in 2018 but I began with Becoming by Michelle Obama early january and it was a revelation! Since that book I have listened to 18 audiobooks and discovered an unthinkable love for …chores LOL. Every time I have to clean the house or the garden I listen to some story, making it so much more fun!
I tried to listen to romance, my favorite genre, in audiobooks but so far, The Girl He Used to Know aside, it’s been a failure! I love reading romance but listening to it makes me giggle…. I realized early on though that historical fiction was perfect for audiobooks!
And that’s the second change this year: I read historical fiction again!
I switch between Adult and YA/NA with 52 adult books and 84 young adult ones!
By genres, Adult and YA all together:
Historical Fiction = 11;
SciFi = 8;
Fantasy/PNR = 42;
Contemporary = 75.
But, but, ….am I still a romance blogger then? I dare say yes as 98% of these books had one or more love story. See?
Now do tell me how was your year in books? What does your 2019 challenge look like?
Thanks for reading!
