2018 was an interesting year. I read more than I ever have in a single year, I meet and surpassed all of my reading goals for 2018. I read a total of 150 books and 55,910 pages. I had set my Goodreads goal for 120 books and I set a page goal for 50,000 pages. I am so happy that I had such an amazing reading year. Now I’m going to go through all the stats for everything that I read this year!
I love seeing the little COMPLETED banner on the challenge. I never thought that I would even read 120 books in 2018 but I really wanted to push myself this year and read more.
Of the 150 books I read this year, 27 were rereads and 123 were books that I had never read before. I’m not sure I’ve reread as many books in any previous year as I have this year. I reread a lot of my all time favorite books this year and I reread a lot of books so that I could finish a few series.
I tried in 2018 to be more critical with my reading this year but I ended up still loving a lot of the books that I read and rating them 4 and 5 stars. I rated 3 books 1 star, 7 books 2 stars, 35 books 3 stars, 45 books 4 stars, and 60 books 5 stars. A good bit of my rereads were 5 stars so that is a bit better.
As usual I’ve read far more contemporary than any other genre. I had planned to try to read more fantasy in 2018 and while I read some, it was once again the year of contemporary. It’s my favorite genre, no doubt, but I do love my thrillers and fantasy.
I read mostly YA again this year, but not exclusively like in years past. I read one adult book, which is such a tiny percent its barely showing on the chart, and a few Middle Grade and New Adult.
And below these are every single book I read this year!
I loved most of the books I read this year and I cannot wait to see the amazing books 2019 has to bring!
Happy Reading everyone!
