April was all about The Raven Cycle because The Raven King came finally out. I think it hasn’t really hit me yet that it is actually over. I keep re-reading the series, I keep thinking about the series, I keep talking about the series and it just doesn’t feel like the end just yet because I’m still right in the middle of it, kind of. At the same time I’m super emotional though BECAUSE it is the end. Basically, my feels are all over the place and I don’t know what to do with myself these days.Read More
I’ve done all kinds of recaps before and always ended up not doing them anymore because after some time I didn’t like them anymore. Every single month I thought about how to start doing monthly recaps again but I was lacking ideas on how to set it up and then it was too late to write them anyway. Somehow my own recaps always seemed so boring compared to others.
A new year always comes with a burst of motivation though, so here I am again, doing a monthly recap. This time I thought about only focusing on the positive and lists all kinds of favorite things of the month, meaning I will not only included books, but also other things, which is a first for me, so I’ll have to experiment a little with what I want to include.
In case you didn’t know, I’m a little obsessed with spreadsheets and getting all kinds of statistics about the books I read. So without further ado, these are my stats for 2015:
It’s time to wrap up 2015! It was another amazing year in terms of reading (and making bookish friends! the thing I’ll cherish the most when looking back at 2015) and even though I can’t believe it’s over already, I’m also very excited to start a new year (new spreadsheets and awesome releases for the win!).
This year I’ll make it easy for myself and participate in Jamie’s End of Year Survey. I mostly limited myself to books that I read for the first time this year, or I would answer every question with one out of my few all-time favorites.
Number Of Books You Read: 142
Number of Re-Reads: 32 (really proud of this number and want it to be even higher in 2016)
Genre You Read The Most From: Fantasy (with SciFi close 2nd) Read More
June was weird. It felt like it lasted forever and was over way too quickly at the same time. I feel like May was just yesterday but it can’t be because somehow I read a lot of books in the past month. I don’t even know how I found the time to read all these but I’m happy that I did.
