My year in books


2017 has come to an end and 2018 is standing before us. Before I start kicking 2018 ass (yeah I have BIG plans for this year) I want to do a review over the year that has gone by. Book wise of course.

I read in a total 143 (two of them rereads) books. In some funny statistics that is about 48 334 pages, written by 86 different authors. Most of them women (yeah I know). The author I read the most from is Jessica Gadziala with eleven books.

My favorite new author of this year is Jane Harper. She has recantly releasted her second book about Aaron Falk. Looking forward to get my hands on one of those copies.

The longest book I read was IT by Stephen King with its 1392 pages. The shortest book was Dane by Liliana Hart with it’s 51 pages. My average book length is 338 pages.

I gave out 27, five star ratings, 47, four star ratings, 34, three stars, 26, two stars and 9, one star ratings. My average rating this year is 3.4 stars. The book with the highest Goodreads rating in my bookshelf is Eli by Jessica Gadziala. And I of course gave that book a five star my self.

The oldest book I read this year is The Magician’s Nephew by C.S Lewis that was first published 1955.

It is like impossible to choose my top five books this year but I’m giving it a try.

The Rosie project by Graeme Simsion
Wonder by R.J Palacio
Ready player one by Ernest Clive
Wait for it by Mariana Zapata
Renny by Jessica Gadziala.

I have not yet selected which book I will start the new year with yet, but I’m sure it will be great. I wish you all a Happy New Year. 😀
