Review of the Year 2014- Overview


tagblogThis year I’m doing five posts for the first time. This one, a look at my challenges, a fiction post, a non-fiction post, and a (new!) Children’s Hour Post.

This year I have read 61 books, that’s 2 less than last year, I think I’ll stick with the same goal for 2015, which was to read 65 books.

  • 7 have been non-fiction, 54 have been fiction
  • 7 re-reads this year (all the Harry Potter Books)
  • 11¬† have been read as part of reading challenges.
  • I didn’t finish 2
  • I started 1 which I intend to return to

My wishlist currently contains 122 books, which is just 1 less than last year.

My To be Read Pile totals up to 60 books that’s gone up again, despite the TBR Pile Challenge.

Not counting re-reads…

5 books have scored 5/5

33 books have scored 4/5

15 books have scored 3/5

1 books have scored 2/5

0 books have scored 1/5

The numbers are more or less the same as last year, less in the 2/2 category, which is nice, and more in the 5/5 which is also nice.

The Challenges post will hopefully be up this weekend

Review of the Year 2013- Overview


cloudThis year I’m doing the four post thing again. This one, a look at my challenges, a fiction post, and a non-fiction post.

This year I have read 63 books, that’s 15 less than last year, I think I’ll have to down my target for 2014

  • 4 have been non-fiction, 59 have been fiction
  • No re-reads this year
  • 11¬† have been read as part of reading challenges.
  • I didn’t finish 3
  • I started 6 which I intend to return to

My wishlist currently contains 123 books (what a nice number! Err, and despite The Wishlist Challenge that number has gone up, again) and my To be Read Pile totals up to 52 books (which could last me almost all year!), that’s gone up too.

3 books have scored 5/5

31 books have scored 4/5

24 books have scored 3/5

4 books have scored 2/5

0 books have scored 1/5

The only one of those numbers to go up is 2/5, which is a little sad, and two of those were challenge books.

 

Stay tuned tomorrow for my review of challenges

I’m doing things a little different again this year, I’ve decided not to do a post of disappointing books, but as last year I will do a post on challenges, and separate posts for fiction and non-fiction

This year I have read 78 books, that’s 15 more than last year:

  • 8 have been non-fiction, 66 have been fiction
  • No re-reads this year
  • 4 (arguably 5) have been read as part of reading challenges.

My wishlist currently contains 116 books (oops, more than last year!) and my To be Read Pile totals up to 44 books (well if we go by this year’s numbers that should probably last me until October-ish)

8 books have scored 5/5

40 books have scored 4/5

25 books have scored 3/5

2 books have scored 2/5

0 books have scored 1/5

So generally this year I have been reading more enjoyable books (hooray!)
