Happy new year, guys! We made it!

I don’t know about you, but I love looking at the stats at the end of the year, see what I read, what I liked. Of course, I sort of do this with non-book-related things as well, but it’s not really measurable now, is it.

For me the theme of 2019 seems to be being alone. First time in my live I live on my own. I knew it’s going to be awesome, but boy, I didn’t realise just how much! I also spent most of Christmas alone, doing yoga, watching CSI (I’m on season 12, and I’ve never seen these episodes), and reading. For New Year’s Eve I had no plans whatsoever either, and stayed at home, by myself, and spent the afternoon with Modern Family, pizza (the Pizza Express kind… yuck, don’t recommend) and cheesecake. I may even turn into a hermit, who knows.

But let’s see the book stats, shall we?

As I was scrolling through all the titles I’ve read last year, I gasped a few times. Like, how did Jar of Hearts not make it to my top 10 list?! Or what about Dead Stop? I mean, they were awesome!

I also appear to be a generous soul, with my average rating of 3.7yearinbooks2

But let’s not forget the fact that I ruthlessly DNF books, and don’t rate them. Last year, 14 books were eliminated, their existence forgotten.

Just a few titles that didn’t agree with me in 2019…

How was your New Year’s Eve?
Any specific plans for 2020? Or just going with the flow?

    • Haha, i read in a book recently (can’t remember which one tho) that the secret to reading a lot is to have a boring life. I think i nailed that! πŸ˜€

  2. Happy New Year!!

    That’s an impressive number of books and pages, wow! πŸ™‚

    I really, really enjoyed living alone as well! I did so for about 5 years and loooved it. I’m not very social, so feeling lonely was never a thing, really.

    • Oh, yea, i can’t say i’m very social either. Only had 1 guest so far, my best friend. πŸ˜€ Everyone keeps asking me about house warming parties… like they don’t know me.
