A good month 😁😁
A good month 😁😁
Yay 🎉🎉 broke the 7000 page barrier! Hardly ever happens.
While I don‘t normally post monthly stats, since I‘ve been laid up with nothing to do but read, I‘m quite proud of my March numbers...I‘m normally around 5-7 books. 🎉🎉🎉
Books read: 10
Star ratings: 5⭐️ - 3
4⭐️ - 6
3⭐️ - 1
4 Historical romance fiction, 3 Christian fiction, 1 Historical mystery fiction, 1 Teen & YA fiction, 1 Historical fiction
March was a very good reading month, when it comes to quality. The 3 books in the picture were all 5/5 🌟 I also had several good 4 stars and two ok 3 stars. No pans or bails. Fingers crossed for continuing this trend in April.
Not too bad. I decided not to do a bunch of challenges this year because of my epic failures last year. I set my Goodreads goal at 99 for this year. It was 120 last year, but I spiraled into a deep depression and could barely read anything for a while, so I only ended up with 92 books read. I'm trying to read more by mood this year. We'll see how it works out.🙂
I am trying this reading tracker google doc I found (maybe from bookriot?). It‘s a little tedious to fill out, but I am gonna looove having all these stats.
I try to read fairly widely, and I know my favorite genre is Fantasy, but surprisingly less than half the books I read were in that genre. I‘m also surprised by how many Memoirs I read and how few Graphic Novels I got around to reading. I didn‘t realize how few ebooks I read this year and that audiobooks would take the lead! I also know that I read a ton of Young Adult Fantasy books, but, hey, there were some Adult Fantasy books in there, too! 😄
My GR app wouldn‘t let me screen shot my 2018 stats so I took a pic the old fashioned way! 📸 It was a good year of reading for me! I surpassed my goal of 63 books; I‘m hoping to finish 71 in 2019 🤓
Some more stats. 2018 was my best reading year ever, due to Litsy, I‘m sure!
So, I had some fun making charts earlier... 😂
Top: I still read primarily fiction this year, but I also read a lot more nonfiction than in previous years (last year I didn‘t read any 😬). I‘m going to #blameitonlitsy. You guys have recommended some great nonfiction this year. Thanks for that! 😄💕
Bottom: Usually, I read about 50/50 male/female authors. This year it skews a bit more female.
August was a good month for me. I got through the first three of my #makemereadit books , did a buddy read of Peyton Place, read my book club book, and read a couple more! Hands down favorite was A Little Life followed by A Song of Achilles, both of which were #makemereadit books. Most disappointing was An Unwanted Guest, which was a bit too tidy.
Lots of great progress this month... still a bunch of would‘ve, should‘ve, could‘ve‘s that I need to get on top of next month, I‘m about 1 book behind in a bunch of my ongoing groups, carrying over Mort #PratchettPosse, Lost Stars #StarWarsBuddyRead, and Mansfield Park #JaneAustenReadAlong, and I‘m still working on my #LMPBC selection.
Just keep swimming, swimming, reading, reading 🐠📚🐠📚😂
Lots of reading this week, in part because I can‘t stop checking out library books and two of them had no renewals. Luckily, I‘ve already had some great reads this month that kept me interested!
Welp, as my readcation wraps up its last day, I‘m taking note:
1 partial book finished: reread of Magpie Murders for book club on Tuesday.
2 new books read: Leah on the Offbeat and Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk.
3 new books in progress: Giant Days (vol 5) and The Magnificent Esme Wells, and Emily Wilson‘s translation of Homer‘s The Odyssey.
Also 2 books purchased. I think I‘m slaying this reading thing. 😂🙌🏼❤️📚
Okay guys here's my numbers for #MakeMeReadIt
You guys are all fantastic! We had over 70 people who decided to join us for this awesome reading challenge!!!!
I love you guys all so much you guys are great!!! 🤗😘🤗😘
Thank you to everybody who participated and a big thank you to everybody who voted 🤘🏻😆🤘🏻
This feels like a failure month, but I‘m nearly finished with 2 other books (an audio book and the Famous Five I‘m reading to my son), so in actual fact it‘s not been too bad. PLUS, I managed to read some poetry. I have been sadly slacking on that front!
I managed to finish quite a few books while on staycation this week. Audiobooks on double-speed probably make up half of my reading hours so far this year.
For those who are curious, these weekly snapshots are from the Leio reading app, available on IOS. I‘ve been using it for 6 or 7 months now and it‘s worth the $5 for the paid version!
I‘ve finished 81 books so far this year, and yet, #MountTBR continues to mock me!
Hoping to spend some of my staycation this week finishing my May TBR list. Yesterday was mostly listening to my first Oscar Wilde.
I fell asleep early last night, and when I woke up a few minutes past midnight, the #leio app had refreshed its weekly view. So, no #stats image for this week!
I did finish 3 books, and I‘m reading 4 more. I think May is going okay so far. Hoping to get through a lot of Catch-22 this week.
Pretty good month. Still working on my #netgalley will power...can‘t. Stop. Requesting. New books!!!!
This #bujo spread started out with so much promise. Too bad I ruined it by losing my place and using the wrong markers. I still like the visual though. Oh well, here‘s to April! #readingjournal #bulletjournal #stats #readingstats #marchwrapup
How does everyone else read - little chunks of time, or longer sessions? As you can see above, I average little chunks. A lot of that is due to reading several books at once.
I started 3 new reads yesterday and the pattern continues.
So far my GR‘s challenge goal is ahead of schedule, but based on my other challenges I‘m definitely reading by the oh pretty🦋, precious 🧙♂️🧝♂️, shiny✨, SQUIRREL 🐿method. Because this is how my #ReadingChallenges2018 stand:
#LitsyAtoZ 1/26 😱
But I was able to add 3 to my #192019 this month
& 2 for my #Nonfiction2018👍
So good month, BUT I should probably stop joining challenges!🧐😏😂
Due to spring break and a couple three day weekends, I had many audio puzzle/cleaning days. That is what made this a great reading month for me! I usually don‘t get the time lol, and I listen to audios at a high speed so I get through them quickly!
🤞🏼 here‘s wishing every month was this good! 😂
(we all know it won‘t!)
MountTBR is shrinking little by little!
Another decent month of reading. I rated ten books with 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. Maybe I need to be a bit more critical!
Have read a total of 44 books so far this year - considering my challenge was to read 52 over the year, I'm think I'm on track.
Goodreads tells me I‘m 27 books ahead for the year so far. I plan on finishing 4 in progress reads and a short audiobook by the end of the month, so I guess I‘m staying ahead.
Today also marks 100 days of consecutive reading, according to the app. Where‘s my reward? 😁
Not a bad month - had some great reads over the month including Little Fires Everywhere, Tell the Wolves I'm Home and Columbine but my favourite of the month has to be Six of Crows.
Looking forward to some March madness!

This weekend I read two quick books on #MountTBR to mix things up a bit. I‘ve been doing quite a bit of audioreading and my 3 in progress paper reads are heavy in topic.
Planning on finishing Maya Angelou by this coming Friday. I‘ve got 2 February TBR picks not yet started. We‘ll see how the rest of the month goes!
I spent some time today with a reading spreadsheet I found on YouTube. Time I should‘ve spent reading. Oops!
Still meeting 7 hours a week. I finished one hardcover and one audioread. Three reads in progress.
Going by what I've read so far this year:
1. E: 31%
2. 52/48. This is a bit off from usual because I'm out to destroy La TBR.
3. 455, including digital freebies.
5. Nah, but I never spend much because I try not to buy stuff my library has.
6. I hate owning things, so I want to read & discard all nonessentials.
7. It's the dream.
8. Couple months. I'm actually trying to buy & read 1 new book per month this year.
