2019 in Review

2019 in Review

As you might know, I track the books I read in a spreadsheet.  As a matter of fact, I showed you a picture of my 2020 spreadsheet in my last post. I do this so the geek in me can spend some time at the end of the year and look at the data.  Here are a few highlights: 

(numbers are not exact, because I’m tallying with a week still left in 2019)

# of books started: 120

# of books finished: 115

Wondering what books didn’t hold my interest?

  •     One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp
  •     The Fairer Sex by Michelle Miller
  •     Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor
  •     The Confidence Code by Katty Kay & Claire Shipman
  •     The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker

46% of my books were in audio format

22% were from the library

9.5% were e-books, I clearly need to dust off my kindle and show it some love!

5 were self development books

5 were re-reads

Fiction was by far the top genre, with sub groups of Historical Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Family Drama, Suspense and Humor showing up often on my list.  I confess, I am not good at assigning a genre.

Total pages read: 38,582!!!!

Wondering what some of my favorite books of 2019 were?  Here are some that I really enjoyed:

  •     Winter Garden – Kristin Hannah
  •     Winter Solstice – Rosamunde Pilcher
  •     Harry’s Trees – John Cohen
  •     Where the Forest Meets the Stars – Glendy Vanderah
  •     The Enchanted April – Elizabeth VonArnim
  •     The Mother-In-Law – Sally Hepworth
  •     The Silent Patient – Alex Michaelides
  •     The Gown – Jennifer Robson
  •     Firefly Lane – Kristin Hannah
