October reading wrap up | 2019

I took a break last week because I wasn’t feeling well and was super busy, and this week I’m even more sick than I was before, typical!

But, ignoring the usual seasonal sniffles, I thought it was finally time that I wrap up the books I read last month, because it’s already the 12th of November! Time flies.

I’m quite surprised that I managed to get through eight books last month, as I also moved house, so the past few weeks have been a bit crazy.

I’ve been using my library quite a lot the past few months as well, which is great.

September reading wrap up | 2019

Hi friends, it’s now October, which means it’s time to do my monthly wrap up!

I had a lot of packing to do last month (and this month), so while I was sorting things out I was able to listen to quite a few audiobooks, which definitely upped the number of books I read in September.

In September, I read 13 books, which I think is the most I’ve read in a month all year. But like I said, most of them were audiobooks so not sure how much that counts!
Definitely a wide range of genres here, and even a few non-fiction.

Apologies for not having proper pictures this month, we’ll be back to normal in a couple of weeks!

August reading wrap up | 2019

Hi all,

The past few weeks have really been getting away from me, but I’m back today to share all the books that I read in August, and how I felt about them.

Last month, I read a total of nine books, which is pretty average for me.

There was definitely some books I really enjoyed, and some that I wasn’t a fan of this month, so a bit across the board reading-wise, which is a shame but what can you do.

Here’s what I read:

Mid year reading wrap up + statistics | 2019

IMG_20190705_214114.jpg

Hello! As always I am infinitely surprised that we have now officially passed six full months of the year.

However, that does mean it’s time to look at my statistics, how much I’ve been reading, when, and what I’ve been picking up.

I don’t normally do statistics in my wrap ups, but I always find them really interesting to see, so hopefully you feel the same way.

My reading goal for the year was 52, which I’ve already met, so I’m now informally aiming for 100.

A full list of all the books I’ve read and what I’ve rated them can be found on my Goodreads, which is linked in the sidebar to the right.

Let’s get mathematical.

April reading wrap up | 2019

IMG_20190505_194114.jpg

Hello! I’ve had a bit of an extended break but now I’m back. With a reading wrap up, on time for once!

I had a bit of a struggle with my reading last month, I wasn’t sure that I would actually be able to make my target of eight books for the month.

I also decided to participate in the O.W.L.s readathon, a month-long readathon during April, for which I finished my last book on April 30. Master procrastinator in action there. I’ll do an entirely separate post for that, which should be up shortly.

This month, I’ve got some stats for you, as my six month wrap up with charts was quite popular and I’d like to put more effort into the stats I’m giving you each month.

There’ll be a list and mini reviews under the stats, scroll down if (like me) you aren’t into maths!

February wrap up 2019

Happy March! This year already feels like it’s flying away at lightning speed, but by some miracle I’ve managed to get through a fair few books so, actually relatively on time for once, I’m here to share with you what I got through.

In February, I read a total of eight books! That brings my final total for the year so far up to 16.

I had a very e-book heavy month in February, my Kindle has barely been out of my hands since the start of the month, but I do want to make a conscious effort to pick up more of my physical books so hopefully that will change a bit for the future.

Reading wrap up | January 2019

IMG_20190205_214715

Hello! It is already February (HOW) and that means it’s time for me to wrap up all the books that I’ve read in the past month. Even if it is now the middle of the month and I’m a little late.

I set my target at 52 for the year which means I should be reading at least one book a week, or four a month, which I was a little bit worried about as I tend to go through phases of reading loads or reading nothing.

However, pleased to say that I smashed that four books goal this month. Despite how sad the above picture looks, in January, I read a total of eight books. Woohoo!

2018 full reading wrap up

book

Happy new year! It seems surreal to be writing this in January 2019, I’m still unsure where the time has gone.

Since it is January, that means it’s time to wrap up the books I got through in 2018.

As with the past few years, my reading goal was set at 50, which I’m proud to say I actually completed for once! I actually read 57 (and three quarters of another one), so let’s see some statistics. I didn’t count the 58th book, as I’ve still got a little bit to finish.
