For my first year blogging, I think I did a really good job at posting. It definably helps that I read a lot so I have lots of reviews to post.
Books Read: 543
This year I read a lot of books as you can tell. My worst months was February, with August and September right behind it. July was my highest read count, but that was because I was furloughed and didn’t have anything else to do.
- Re-reads: 198
- DNF: 19
- ARC’s: 80
- eBooks: 442
- Audiobooks: 26
- Comics: 30
- Webcomics: 5
- Paperback: 25
- Hardback: 11
I am surprised by the number of audiobooks I listened to this year. I didn’t get into audiobooks until late last year so wasn’t expecting that many. I really enjoy listening to them while working on projects though.
I was surprised by this chart. I wasn’t expecting to have so many 4 star reviews but I am glad. This was a surprisingly good reading year, even with a lot of it being rereads. I did have 19 DNF which is my highest amount, but I no longer force myself to read books I am not enjoying. I hope this year I don’t have any 1 or 1.5 star reviews but we will see.
- 130,245 pages read
- 129 hours 19 minutes (roughly five days)
Genres and Tropes:
My most read genres this year were Paranormal (188), Science Fiction (97), Contemporary (89), and Nonfiction (47). These stats weren’t really surprising, except for the nonfiction part. Before this year I struggled to read 5 nonfiction books a year but this year I found a new love for nonfiction. I hope to continue this trend and read just as many nonfiction in 2021.
I read a lot of different tropes this year, with the most common one being fated mates. This makes since because I read a lot of paranormal romance. The other most common tropes were alien abduction, post-apocalypse, romantic suspense, and instant love.
Most of my reading this year was done with eBooks I purchased. I read 61 ARCs from Netgalley and 18 from Authors. I also utilized my library this year and checked out a lot of comics and eBooks through them.
Most Read Author:
Here are my most read authors for 2020. I am not surprise by Anna Hackett being my #1 author this year. I reread five of her series this year, one of which was 20 books. Anna is one of my go-to authors for when I am struggling because her stories have a lot of action and a lot of love.
Almost all of these were rereads of series except Anna Lowe, Beverly Jenkins, Cathy Yardley, Kaylea Cross, and Neil Gaiman. These authors were all new novels/series for me. Beverly Jenkins and Kaylea Cross are my new favorite authors of 2020.
