Mid-Year Wrap Up

Monthly wrap up banner

Hello!

It has been a while! I took a bit of a break from doing wrap ups because I was getting a bit burned out rushing to do it at the end of every month. I decided after February’s wrap up that I was just going to do a six month one and a end of the year one.

So let see my reading stats for the past six months!

Reading Stats from January-June:

Books Read: 314

  • New: 218
  • Re-reads:  96

As you can see, I have been a bit better this year at reading new to me books instead of just rereading everything. I am trying very hard to get my TBR down but its slow going and I do get distracted.

Formats:

  • eBooks:199
  • Hardcover: 2
  • Paperback: 1
  • Audiobooks: 39
  • Graphic Novels/Manga: 56
  • Webcomic: 3
  • Bonus Shorts: 14

Lots of graphic novels and audiobooks so far for this year. I participated in Graphicsathon in February which really pushed me to read a lot.

Sources:

  • Purchased eBook: 132
  • Purchased Book: 9
  • ARCs: 40
  • Library: 50
  • Kindle Unlimited: 21
  • Purchased Audio: 19
  • Audible Borrow: 6
  • Free Online: 30
  • Webtoon: 1
  • Shonen Jump: 6

As you can see a lot of my reading so far this year has been through purchased ebooks, the library and ARCs. I didn’t realize I had read 40 ARCs already this year.

Ratings:

So far I have mostly read books I have enjoyed. A few that were under 3 stars but better than previous years. I have gotten better at picking books that I will most likely enjoy.

Pages: 

As you can see, February was my highest page count and March was my lowest page count.

Listening time:

As you can see, I have been listening to a lot of audiobooks. June was my biggest audiobook month because I listened to the whole Percy Jackson series, which was fantastic.

Genres:

As usual, paranormal romance is my most read genre. Urban fantasy is second, and contemporary third.

Tropes:

Look I know LGBTQ isn’t a trope but I mark it as a trope because I want to know if the LGBTQ romance is a paranormal, contemporary, etc. So its my most read trope right now, with chosen ones and fated mates tied in second, and alien abduction in third.

Most Read Author:

So my most read authors so far are Anna Hackett, Jeaniene Frost, Ilona Andrews, and Maz Maddox. Its been a year of rereading my favorite authors and I don’t regret it.

Goodreads Challenge Update: 

  • 314 books out of 500

One thought on “Mid-Year Wrap Up

  1. What an incredible year of reading! I envy you being able to read so many books so quickly 😍 I really loved Fated Blades and Chef’s Kiss, both of which I also read this year too. I hope you continue to have an amazing year of reading and enjoy all the books!
