Today is the LAST DAY OF 2019! I love stats and graphs so here’s some fun stats about all the books I read this year ♥
Total books: 113
Total Pages read: 34,379
Average rating: 3.6
I took this graphic from Goodreads because I thought it was cool to see where all of my books fell. It’s not 200% accurate since Goodreads doesn’t allow for half star ratings but it gives a good idea of how many books fell into each star rating.
This was a really heavy 4 and 3 star year unfortunately. I didn’t discover nearly as many new all time favorites as in years past.
Below is a graph of all my star ratings + DNFs. I had a total of 11 DNFs on top of my 113 completed books this year.
Apparently spring and fall are my biggest reading months. Who knew.
I had pretty solid split of new releases and backlist titles, which I’m proud of! I want to keep up with new releases but there are also so many backlist titles I want to get to as well.
This was my first year receiving ARCs so I was curious how many I read in comparison to books I own, audio, KU, etc. I can’t believe I read *40* ARCs this year! I definitely need to prioritize my physical TBR in 2020 though.
Standalone vs Series
I can’t believe I read an even split between standalones and series! Definitely didn’t see that one coming. Although a lot of these are romance standalones that are a part of a series.
No surprise here, romance dominated my reading this year
The majority of the books I read were adult or new adult – which isn’t surprising since most of the books I read were romance or mystery/thriller/horror.
