What is today’s topic? So glad you asked!
Mon. | Dec. 5 – This Is How We Read #AMonthofFaves2016 – eg. Number of books read so far, genre you read the most from, picture of favorite (or most often used) reading location, most read author, % eBooks, hardcovers, paperbacks and/or audiobooks, hint at what your favorite read of the year is (let us guess), types of books you wish you read more of, month you read the most and least)
Number of Books Read So Far This Year: As I write this, I’ve read 80 books. I’m way off than my normal numbers. I went through a bit of a slump. I spent a good bit of time re-reading some old fav books (Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Big Little Lies, some early Sue Grafton, Nancy Drew books, and even did a re-read of Gone Girl.
Goodreads Challenge: I challenged myself to read 132 books this year, and early in the year I realized that for many reasons it was not going to work. If I could just read, it would be different- but blogging takes time away from my reading. I eventually changed my challenge goal to 85 books and I’m 5 away from my goal (I feel confident that I will make it!)
Longest Book: On Second Thought by Kristan Higgins (look for it in Jan 2017!)
5 Star Books: 10 (as of writing)
4 Star Books: 50 (as of writing)
3 Star Books: 20 (as of writing)
A Book I was SO Excited to Read That Disappointed Me: Truly Madly Guilty. It’s fine, but honestly by the time it was revealed what happened at the BBQ, I basically could have cared less.
Hints about my (some) of my fav books of the year: One is about choices, another is about Theodosia Burr, another is about missed connections, and a woman torn between 2 men.
Author I Read The Most: I discovered Susan M. Boyer Liz Talbot series this year and flew through the backlist and then read the newly published one.
First Book of 2016: Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave
Audio Books: #currentlylistening Good As Gone by Amy Gentry
