Blogging Year 1 in Review
Total Books Read: 75
Library Books: 24
Books On My TBR List: 3
Books in a Series: 28 (This depends on how broadly I define "series". I went pretty broad and counted books like "Stolen Prey" by John Sandford. The Prey series has all the same characters but the plots are pretty independent - more enjoyable if read in order but unnecessary).
Authors I’d Never Read Before: 55
Male/Female/Both Authors: 16/58/1
Kindle books: 29
Audio Books: 2
Books I owned or purchased: 20
Young Adult: 33
Women's Lit: 29
Favorite Books of 2012: "We Need to Talk about Kevin" by Lionel Shriver, "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green, and "Eleanor & Park" by Rainbow Rowell
Least Favorite Books of 2012: "Outlander" by Diana Gaboldon and "Angry Housewives Eating Bon-Bons" by Lorna Landvik
My biggest take-away when looking at these stats is that Young Adult fiction was a huge percentage of my reading list and that I have a pretty heavy disparity between Male and Female Authors read. In 2013 I'm going to set a lower reading total while shooting to review everything I read and getting a better mix of material.
