2018 Summary

2018

Goodreads has this neat little feature that at the end of the year, they show you some statistics of your reading year. Like how many books and pages you have read. Whats you average in rating and some other fun stuff. And off course I’m going to show you how my reading year have been.

I’m pretty happy with it. I did read some really great books in 2018. I have started to be a lot more selective with which book I do read and feel I hit some real jackpots. But I also have read some not so great books. That’s just life I guess.

Here is some fun facts about my reading year 2018.

December Summary

monthlysummery2

I’m not happy with this months read. I had such troubles with several books. I have yet not finished Strange the Dreamer that I started, but I have not DNF it because I still hope it will get more exciting soon. Santa Claus totally killed my desire to read but I felt I had to finish it and it took way to long. So even though I have had several days free from work, I have hardly read anything. Its sad but now I just hope January will be better for me.

November Summary

monthlysummery2

I’m not that happy with November. I worked so much that I didn’t have much time for reading. It mostly went in audiobooks and I did reread a couple of books for the reason that it was easy on my mind.

But it is starting to slowing down on work now and i’m exciting for the last exciting month of the year. And soon it is Christmas. Woho! :o)

October Summary

monthlysummery2

Horror month is over and even though I did set out to read mostly horror, I did get in some other genres as well. The month have been very up and down but did read some new favorites and several that I can put on my “will read again” list which I like.

I’m glad I got as much reading in as I did because now November is here. The one month of the year I pretty much work nonstop and don’t have a life. Will get some reading in but impossible to say how much and what.

Favorite book this month: Lady Luck by Kristen Ashley.

Faire un voyage

bonvoyageI’m going on a vacation and will not be able to write any reviews in that period. But I will still read and when I’m back, hopefully I have lots and lots of books to review. (Probably not but hey, I can dream.)

A fun thing however is that I’m going book shopping while there, so I probably will have a little book haul to share with you. Wish to follow me on my travel? Take a look at my Instagram.

September Summary

monthlysummery2

Oh what a month. Started of kind of rocky with The witness and out of total boredom I bought the first book to a series I have been avoiding and it turned out I totally loved it. So I ended up reading the three books under just a week.

Been little all over when it comes to genre but it looks like mystery/crime and romance has been the ones I have been in mood for.

Now October is here and that is seriously my favorite reading/movie month and I cant wait to pull out all my horror books I have been saving for just this month. Have you read my Top 5 + 1 books To be read in October list? If not you can do it here.

Favorite book this month: A court of mist and fury bu Sarah J. Maas without a doubt.

August Summary

monthlysummery2

Have had a lot of hit and miss this month. I’m now at my end of my “not to buy any books” ban and I think that’s why I have had such a rocky month. Several of the books I read are those who have been on my shelf for a lot longer than it should. Still I did read some great books in genres I not normally read in. Like for an example Hex by Heuvelt and You by Caroline Kepnes.

September will be the “caching up” month I think. Since I don’t have been able to buy books, I have a lot of series I follow and new books to read. So I will have to get that boll rolling. I’m going to try not to go overboard and buy to many books again. Do NOT wish to be put on another ban in the near future.

Favorite book this month: Hard choice this month but I think it is Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley. That one was wonderful.
Least favorite book this month:
The undomestic goddess – Sophie Kinsella. Not happy with that one. 😦

July Summary

monthlysummery2

I’m happy with this month. I have made a huge dent in my TBR pile in Kindle and I have soon reached my goal. Still have my goal on my physical TBR shelf and when I reach it, my no buy books ban will be lifted. Oh can’t wait. The last couple of months I have focused on getting my pile downsized. Specially in my kindle since I had like a 100+ books on it when the year started. Not to mention all the physical books on my TBR shelf and I have had a hard time stop buying books.

I have been deep in the romance genre this month. Some offside, mindless books and some thrillers just to break the stride. But I’m happy. 🙂

June Summary

monthlysummery2

I don’t feel that I had a good reading month this time. Of my eleven books I read, three of them I gave a one star rating and I even DNF one book because I just couldn’t take it. No one earned a full five stars this month. That is how bad my reading month have been. I don’t know why but I been picking it completely wrong.

I did read some good books however. Like the name of the wind, Simon vs the homo sapiens agenda and dark lover. Red rising and shiver was good books to. So not a completely waste of time and money. I do hope that July will be better for me. Maybe need to be more selective with what books I chose to read. And I’m still working on bringing my TBR (kindle + physical) down to a more acceptable level. 😛
