*Includes 3 books that I DNF and have officially decided I never will. Does not include about 5 that I did not finish but haven’t given up on.
**Doesn’t count authors twice if I read more than one of their books this year.The most embarrassing statistic up there (at least to me) is the Female to Male author ratio and it’s actually worse that it appears. I’ve read books by 56 women and 8 men, but when you count multiple books by the same author it becomes 76 books by women and 10 books by men.
As anyone who follows my blog is probably aware I had a job change this year that put a damper on my reading habits for a while during the adjustment period. Can you see the adjustment period?
I think this makes it much clearer (I tend to post reviews out about 6 weeks)
I’m quite proud that my Adult to YA ratio was so close to even (although I may have counted New Adult books as Adult and I’m not quite sure on that one).
Here’s a lovely chart that breaks down what I read by genre
Does anyone else have the same issue with author ratio that I do? Any other interesting discoveries about personal reading habits that surprised you?
