goodbye 2017, hello 2018 ! MY YEAR IN READING !

Hi guys, I’ve seen posts like this everywhere and decided the idea of showing everyone what I’ve read, & logging it permanently is something really cool so I went to my goodreads, and took some screenshots and have decided to talk about my year !

GOODREADS GOAL ? 

I smashed my reading goal of 100 books, by reading 131 books as of the 30th of December! I genuinely cannot believe I have read SO many books and I’ve enjoyed my time reading so much so I’m glad I managed to read so many !

HOW I RATED MY BOOKS !

I thought I wasn’t being ahrsh enough this year, that I was really kind and gentle on my ratings, but looking here now, maybe I was just pretty average with my ratings ? I think next year I’ll think alot more about what rating I actually want to give something rather than going with a gut instinct. ( unfortunatley I went with .5 stars aswell, which is something I do, and makes a difference in what I thought of a book, but it’s really hard to take that info out of goodreads when you’ve read 130 books and they don’t do half stars, so apologies.

WHAT GENRES DID I READ ?

I’m actually pleasantly surprised at how much I feel like I branched out in my genre reading ! I reached for more genres & while I didn’t always LOVE the book, I did tend to enjoy alot of them! (  though I did add alot more divisions & read more books… buT STILL ! )

SERIES STARTED VS SERIES FINISHED

So at the mid year point, I was pretty equal, the only thing was that I had started maybe 4 more series than I had finished, but now, it’s gone bad, I decided to make a difference between series I’ve started (aka only on book 1) and series I’m a little further in, and wow do I need to finish some damn series ! I only finished 7 total this year… whoops ?
