The 2016 Bookish End of Year Wrap Up

giphy

Hey folks! I’m sorry I haven’t been around for a while. I’ve been in some terrible reading slump where I wasn’t enjoying what I was reading and boycotting writing blog posts about it. Also, there was that big holiday that happened that kept me away from the computer.

No, honestly I’ve been reading a great book and any time outside of reading that book is wasted time. I’m just a reading machine.

Anyway, it’s been another amazing year of reads. I’m obviously going to list all the books I’ve read this year, but I do want to highlight some of my favorites. I’m not a huge fan of saying a book was good or bad because liking something is entirely subjective. Instead, I’m going to just point them out. Perhaps you’ll like them, but perhaps you won’t. Either way, reading will always get you #woke.

Also because I’m a data nerd, I’ve decided to put down some stats I’ve gathered from my reads:

  • # of books read this year: 37 (not as impressive as last year, but I’m OK with that)
  • # of books about POC: 5/37 or 14% (not bad, but I can do better)
  • # of books written by women: 35/36 or 97% of the books I’ve read this year (holy cow!)
  • Most read author of the year: Leigh Bardugo
  • Favorite books of the year:
    • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
    • The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
    • A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
    • It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
  • Author I fell in love with: R.S. Grey!

Here’s my book list. For some reason I feel like I haven’t read a lot of books this year, but in hindsight I’ve read a ton of books:
