Statistics Survey 2017

Four years ago, Andi (Andi’s ABCs) and I got to talking about how much we love the end-of-the-year surveys (and really all of the other surveys) that go around, obviously Jamie’s Annual End of the Year Survey (The Perpetual Page Turner) being one of our favorites! After a discussion of our love of stats and looking back on our year in reading through statistics, we decided to devise a survey to help us with our quest and the STATISTICS SURVEY was born! The Statistics Survey is back for another year so feel free to fill out any time you’re ready with your reading year in stats!

Obsessed with your bookish stats like we are? Join us for the 4th annual Statistics Survey!

This survey is more about checking out the facts and details behind what you read and not necessarily favorites and reflecting. Fill out and post whenever you like (my answers will be going up in late December or early January to get the full year in)! These statistics should all be for books that you read in 2017 (not books necessarily published in 2017). We have a linky at the bottom to link up your survey once it’s done! Hope you have fun!

  • Number of books rated…
    • Five Stars: 25
    • One/Two Stars: 6
  • Number of authors met in 2016: Umm I honestly don’t remember! Probably not as many events as last year but it’s hard to keep track with conferences like BEA and ALA.
  • Number of book events attended in 2016: See above haha. I attended ALAMW in January and BEA in May but don’t really know about signings and whatnot. Probably only a handful this year!
  • Number of books you read in one day: 11 (6 of which were novellas/shorts)
  • Number of books that made you cry: Not a lot, to be honest. Probably only a couple… but I did BAWL my eyes out watching the If I Stay movie, if that counts.
  • Number of 2017 books you have on pre-order: None, actually
  • BytheBooks
    • Book read furthest away from home (vacation reads?): When I read EMPIRE OF STORMS on my vacation in Colorado (and used my friend’s beautiful white wooden table for an Instagram opportunity)
    • Book that took you the longest to read: MY LADY JANE (from 7/18/16 – 8/23/16) because I put it down and came back to it later
    • Book that you personally connected with the most: Probably PS I LIKE YOU by Kasie West!
    • Book that made you love the villain: I wouldn’t say she was a VILLAIN but I really wanted more redemption for Sloane’s former BFF in SUMMER OF SLOANE. There seems to be a lot more going on there and I’d love a story from her POV!
    • Book you said you’d come back to but still haven’t picked up again: KISS CAM, LOVE LIES AND SPIES, THE PASSION OF DOLSSA
    • Book you read waaaay before it’s publication date: THE EDGE OF EVERYTHING by Jeff Giles. I got to blurb the ARC!
    • Book you read on your birthday: ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS (it’s a re-read tradition now) and THE GOOD GIRL on audio
    • Book with a character who shares your name: I think there was a Brittany in HOW TO HANG A WITCH… maybe. She’s always the mean girl…….
    • Book you weren’t entirely truthful about when rating (Fluff up any ratings? Rated even though you didn’t finish?): Hmmm well I rated EMPIRE OF STORMS four stars but I’m still very disappointed with it so I feel like I should knock it down to three. I may or may not have skimmed the end of SHADE ME. Like skimmed a LOT.
    • Book you read in 2016 but already want to re-read: CROOKED KINGDOM, the Raven Cycle again now that THE RAVEN KING is out, THE CROWN’S GAME, REBEL OF THE SANDS
    • Book you borrowed from a friend a long time ago and still have: Andi loaned me TWIST, the second book in the LOOP duology. Found it the other day just sitting around……. SORRY, FRIEND! I also finally read THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN so I can give it back to my friend Lisa!
    • Book you which you could go back and read for the first time again: The Mistborn books, because the surprises are just so great, and GEMINA because I was too distracted while trying to read that one and I wish I had more time to sit and revel.
    • Most books read by one author this year: Oh gosh, probably Sanderson. (Isn’t it always??) Nine from him, including all the novellas & extras. Four for JK Rowling if you include those Pottermore collections + CURSED CHILD.
      I also binge read the Mara Dyer trilogy (three for Michelle Hodkin) and the Elemental Trilogy (three for Sherry Thomas). I got on a minor Sherlock Holmes kick towards the end of the year and read one novel and two novellas.

    ThisThat

    • Happiest & saddest: Happiest: PS I LIKE YOU | Saddest: Ummm CROOKED KINGDOM but only THAT PART I guess (I bawled)
    • Longest & shortest…
      • By page number: EMPIRE OF STORMS (693 pgs), THE HOPE OF ELANTRIS (25 pgs)
      • By title: AS YOU WISH: INCONCEIVABLE TALES FROM THE MAKING OF THE PRINCESS BRIDE (12 words), YOU (three letters)
      • From buying to reading: Longest I think is THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER which I have had for at least four years. Shortest would be one of the many novellas that I purchased and immediately listened to on audio!
    • Best & worst…
      • Average rating on Goodreads: Best: ACOMAF (4.74) | Worst: TO DIE FOR by Alice Clark-Platts (a short story, rating of 2.54) or for full-length, THE SMALLER EVIL by Stephanie Kuehn (2.94)
      • Books you read/your rating: Ummm pass, too hard. No but really, many five star books. I can tell you the ones I rated two stars though (books that I finished and did not DNF): SHADE ME, SIX-GUN SNOW WHITE, TRUTHWITCH, THE GLITTERING COURT, WHERE FUTURES END, THE SMALLER EVIL. Some unpopular!
      • Series enders: Best: THE WINNER’S KISS, CROOKED KINGDOM | Worst: THE RETRIBUTION OF MARA DYER, HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD
    • First & last…
      • Reads of 2016: First: SHADE ME | Last: Pottermore extras or JACKABY, if I finish before the new year!
      • Books on your bookcase (1st book on the top left and last book on the bottom right): I forgot to look at this!
    • Most disappointing & biggest pleasant surprise: Most disappointing: TRUTHWITCH. For as much as it was talked about and hyped… I did not get along with it. Best surprise: You know what… I’m gonna say KILL THE BOY BAND. It was silly but SO much fun, like a campy horror movie. I wasn’t sure what to expect and it was just dark and hilarious.
    • Fandom you joined & one you abandoned: Joined: THE MAGICIANS, maybe? I’m not quite at fandom level but I really enjoyed it and really want to watch the show now! Abandoned: I think I’m over Sarah J. Maas. Eeeeeep *hides*
    • Series you picked up & series you quit: Picked up (and finished) The Elemental Trilogy by Sherry Thomas and the Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin. Quit: The Red Queen books by Victoria Aveyard. I kind of dug the first one but ughhhhh I DNFed the second.
    • Most lenient & harshest ratings: Lenient: Again, probably EMPIRE OF STORMS or following that, maybe BURNING MIDNIGHT. It wasn’t a great book but I enjoyed the atmosphere of the beginning. It’s probably more 3 stars than 4.  | Harshest: TRUTHWITCH and SIX-GUN SNOW WHITE. They just weren’t “me” books but I had a really hard time with them so two stars it is.
    • Most hyped & furthest under the radar that you read: Hyped: TRUTHWITCH, simply from its online presence. More so, maybe THE RAVEN KING. Under the radar: Probably THROWING MY LIFE AWAY or FUTURE SHOCK.

    GrabBag

    • Book you read that is red: Continued on with my Janet Evanovich readings with TRICKY TWENTY-TWO
    • Starts with X, Y, or Z: YOU by Caroline Kepnes
    • Book you hugged when you finished it: ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS, as I always do
    • Book you wanted to throw across a room: Oh gosh, any of my two-star books. 26 kisses anna michelsDefinitely EMPIRE OF STORMS and ACOMAF (can you tell I had SJM issues this year?)
    • Food you craved while/after reading a certain book: I wanted those lemon tarts and rose macarons from HEARTLESS!
    • Book that became an instant go-to recommendation: 26 KISSES by Anna Michels. So super cute!
    • Furthest out of your comfort zone: LEAVE ME by Gayle Forman. I really don’t read adult contemporary/realistic fiction so it was not something I would have picked up if it wasn’t Gayle!
    • Read on a recommendation (that you may not have picked up yourself): NEVERWHERE by Neil Gaiman. Without Alyssa, I never would have read any of Neil Gaiman’s books!
    • Forced yourself to finish: TRUTHWITCH. Gosh, it was rough. I went from audio to print to really struggling to finish.
    • Series or author’s works you binged (whether all at once or throughout the year): Ooh yes! The Elemental Trilogy by Sherry Thomas and The Mara Dyer Trilogy by Michelle Hodkin.

Statistics Survey: The Book Addict’s Guide in 2015

blankheader

Obsessed with your bookish stats like we are? Join The Book Addict’s Guide and Andi’s ABCs for the second annual Statistics Survey!
(see the original post with linky here!)

This survey is all about the facts and details behind what you read and not necessarily favorites and reflecting. Fill out and post whenever you like! These statistics should all be for books that you read in 2015 (not books necessarily published in 2015). We have a linky in the original post (without our answers) to link up your survey once it’s done! Hope you have fun!

number of statistics survey

  • Number of books read…
    • Under 250 pages (not including novellas): 4 (The Detour, Calvin, Fairest, Alanna)
    • Between 400-449 pages: 11
    • Between 450-499 pages: 6
    • Over 500 pages: 8
    • Over 1000 pages: None this year! But The Wise Man’s Fear was 994! So close!!
  • Number of…
    • Audiobooks: 34! Wow, can you imagine what my life would be like without them!?
    • Re-reads: 9
    • DNFs (did not finish): 6. Wow, that’s not bad. Usually I DNF a LOT more! I think I’m being pickier this year.
  • Number of books rated…
    • Five Stars: 27. That also includes some re-reads, though. 18 not including re-reads eeeep
    • One/Two Stars: Only two 2-star books! My first one was one of the first ones of the year and I vowed to be pickier. Then I ended up bumping a 2.5 star book from 3 stars to 2 on Goodreads because it just didn’t sit well with me.
  • Number of authors met in 2015: Oh my, I don’t know how to possibly count that. I met every single author at YA Fandom Frenzy so that was quite a few right there plus events plus BEA plus ALA. A lot?
  • Number of book events attended in 2015: Oy, again. Hmmm… Eight, I think.
  • Number of books you read in one day: 5
  • Number of books that made you cry: About ten, give or take
  • Number of 2016 books you have on pre-order: 5 (The Raven King, Heartless, Stars Above, A Court of Mist and Fury, The Skylighter)

by the books statistics survey

  • Book read furthest away from home (vacation reads?): Hmmm. I think the only place I traveled this year was NY for BEA so that will be when I started SIX OF CROWS!
  • Book that took you the longest to read: Hm, on a technicality, TRIAL BY FIRE because I read like 17 pages in 2014 and then finished almost a year later in 2015! In actuality, AMERICAN GODS took me almost a month to read.
  • Book that you personally connected with the most: Hmmm I don’t really think there was a book that I connected with super personally this year so I’ll go with a book I was incredibly invested in… kind of a toss up between QUEEN OF SHADOWS and THE NAME OF THE WIND.
  • Book that made you love the villain: If we’re talking more anti-hero, SIX OF CROWS. Actual villain? Ummm. Let’s go with RED QUEEN, and you know why.
  • Book you said you’d come back to but still haven’t picked up again: I actually didn’t put too many books on temporary hold this year! I did pause on THE KNIGHT OF SEVEN KINGDOMS because my audiobook loaded on my phone all out of order and I need to fix that before I can start again.
  • Book you read waaaay before it’s publication date: Ooh let’s see which one wins. I thought it might be SIX OF CROWS but it’s actually THE SKYLIGHTER by Becky Wallace! I finished in November and it comes out in March 2016.
  • Book you read on your birthday: THE REPUBLIC OF THIEVES by Scott Lynch and a re-read of ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Stephanie Perkins
  • Book with a character who shares your name: This is always so hard! I don’t know if I had one this year…
  • Book you weren’t entirely truthful about when rating (Fluff up any ratings? Rated even though you didn’t finish?): And the truth comes out… I guess the biggest black sheep moment was when I read UPROOTED with my On the Same Page gals. They LOVED it. It just wasn’t the book for me. I think I ended up rating it three stars because I felt so bad (not to mention stupid) but I really had a hard time with it and didn’t connect. Three stars might have been a bit cushy. I didn’t even write a review for it!
  • Book you read in 2015 but already want to re-read: Probably ILLUMINAE! I also have the audio of it so I need to re-read that soon! You wouldn’t think the audio would be great with the formatting but I’ve heard it’s fantastic. 
  • Book you borrowed from a friend a long time ago and still have: That’s easy. Sorry to Andi that I still have her copy of TWIST by Karen Akins. And I still have Lisa’s copy of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN. (Do you guys need these back????)
  • Book you which you could go back and read for the first time again: Probably QUEEN OF SHADOWS! It was so freaking magical.
  • Most books read by one author this year: Five from Janet Evanovich, five from Brandon Sanderson, five from Marissa Meyer

this & that statistics survey

  • Happiest & saddest: Probably re-read of ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS (happy) and ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES by Jennifer Nevin (sad)
  • Longest & shortest…
    • By page number: THE WISE MAN’S FEAR by Patrick Rothfuss (994 pgs), CALVIN by Martine Leavitt (192 pgs)
    • By title: NEED by Joelle Charbonneau (1 word, 4 letters), HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS (6 words)
    • From buying to reading: The easiest route is to go with MITOSIS, the novella for The Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson. I finished STEELHEART and immediately bought and started the audiobook! Longest from buying to reading is any of the Stephanie Plum books! I stocked up on the mass markets back in 2011 and am just getting to some of them now!
  • Best & worst…
    • Average rating on Goodreads: QUEEN OF SHADOWS (4.65), A WICKED THING (3.32 — this was actually my only two-star rating this year. Guess I wasn’t alone!)
    • Books you read/your rating: I’d actually say QUEEN OF SHADOWS was probably the best book I read this year and as far as finishing goes, A WICKED THING is still my least favorite. I have some DNFs that were possibly worse but we’ll still with books I finished.
    • Series enders: WINTER by Marissa Meyer (best), STRANGE AND EVER AFTER by Susan Dennard (worst). I was really disappointed with this last book. Maybe too much time went by… Maybe I fell out of love… Maybe both… But it just felt like nothing grew from the second to the third book and it seemed really hard to get into.
  • First & last…
    • Reads of 2015: THERE WILL BE LIES by Nick Lake (first), HEADS WILL ROLL (A Necromancer Novella,  last)
    • Books on your bookcase (1st book on the top left and last book on the bottom right): HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE (UK Hardcover – first), DAUGHTER OF THE FOREST (last)
  • Most disappointing & biggest pleasant surprise: AN EMBER IN THE ASHES was the most disappointing. There was SO MUCH HYPE and lots of people loved it. Even with my favorite narrators EVER, I DNFed. Pleasant surprise was probably ALANNA! I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it being more MG than YA (at least for the first book of the series) but it was just so delightful.
  • Fandom you joined & one you abandoned: Ooh, the Kingkiller Chronicle fandom is one I joined, hardcore! I think I’m dropping the Lauren Oliver fandom. I loved DELIRIUM but every other book since that one has just been meh for me.
  • Series you picked up & series you quit: I picked up The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss, The Reckoners Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson, and actually kind of got into RED QUEEN. Hmmmmm I don’t know if there was a series that I decided not to continue! I read a couple books that I didn’t totally enjoy but they were series-enders or stand alones.
  • Most lenient & harshest ratings: A few of my three-star ratings were a bit lenient (NEED, WE’LL NEVER BE APART, UPROOTED) because they were closer to 2.5 than three. Harshest ratings… probably A WICKED THING since it was my only two-star rating and CALL ME, MAYBE by Ellie Cahill. I loved the beginning but had a hard time with the middle to the end so I ended up giving it three on Goodreads.
  • Most hyped & furthest under the radar that you read: Most-hyped is probably WINTER or SIX OF CROWS… or QUEEN OF SHADOWS or ILLUMINAE haha. Under the radar… probably THINGS I CAN’T EXPLAIN. It was adult/NA and I feel like no one really read/heard of it.

grab bag statistics survey

  • Post you wish you could re-write: My YA MBTI Personality chart. I got a SUPER nasty reply (that is not in the comments so don’t go lookin’!) about how wrong I was about the personalities and how off-base I was on everything. I did put a disclaimer in there that I was not an expert and did this totally for fun but I guess some people feel the need to be correct and tear someone down over leaving well enough alone. It just made me feel super bad about the post and I almost took it down… But so many other people appreciated it and had fun with it and I realized that I shouldn’t let one stranger’s opinion turn me off. I tried to be as accurate as I could and did put a note in there that it was only for fun. OH WELL.

Thanks so much for joining our 2015 Statistics Survey! We hope you had a lot of fun! Want to share with others? Post the link to your answers in the linky in the original intro post!

Statistics Survey 2015

Last year, Andi (Andi’s ABCs) and I got to talking about how much we love the end-of-the-year surveys (and really all of the other surveys) that go around, obviously Jamie’s Annual End of the Year Survey (The Perpetual Page Turner) being one of our favorites! After a discussion of our love of stats and looking back on our year in reading through statistics, we decided to devise a survey to help us with our quest and the STATISTICS SURVEY was born!

These statistics should all be for books that you read in 2015 (not books necessarily published in 2015). We have a linky at the bottom to link up your survey once it’s done! Hope you have fun!

Discussion | Blogging Statistics: More Than Just Followers

discussion

A couple weeks ago, it came to my attention that there was a bit of talk going around Twitter regarding posting habits (what is “too little” and what it “too much”) and I felt really cringey that there’s still a sort of mention of what bloggers “should” and “should not” do (lots of quotes here, I know… Can you tell I don’t approve?) and what the “norms” are. I don’t often tweet out into the abyss about issues or THINGS but I just couldn’t hold my tongue…

I was mostly upset (and maybe a little ranty) because the tweet that I saw was regarding a person who was frustrated someone unfollowed them due to too many social media posts in one day. I know it’s disheartening when you see someone actively make the decision not to follow your account anymore, but it made me upset because it felt like the focus was on the number of followers for this person’s account and not the reason why they were posting in the first place.

I wrote a previous discussion post about how we as bloggers need to give ourselves a break and not worry too much about the so-called expectations of the blogging community. We read for fun. We blog for fun. It’s a hobby and it should always been enhancing our lives and happiness, not causing stress… and this whole posting thing really follows that message as well. This is the ONLY blogging “rule” I think we should abide by and sort of my own personal mantra for my blogging habits. The “blogger advice” posts are great, but to all bloggers — new AND old — remember that advice does not equal rules. I’ve had some bloggers ask me how I come up with ideas, how I schedule, how I write reviews, and even how to gain followers, and I’m always happy to share my experience and advice but the best possible advice I can ever give is to make sure you’re enjoying your time and that there is no wrong way to do something. What works for me may not work for the next person — and that’s a good thing. I think we’ve all created our blogs to have our own little corner of the internet where we can voice our opinions and share some awesome book information with the rest of the world and this is my one “should” — your blog should be that corner of the internet where you’re 100% free to find your own voice and what content works for you and the originality and passion for what you enjoy is what makes your blog successful, in my opinion, and what will attract the most followers to your blog. I think readers are able to see a genuine voice, original content, and something that they connect to and that’s the best way to “get followers”. I know it’s hard not to focus on how many followers your blog has, but trust me, they will come if you just keep doing what you’re doing in your own way.

Recently, I had a lot going on in my personal life and I couldn’t find the time to blog. I generally post every weekday (and that is in no way a “norm” — I just really enjoy posting and generally have enough content to fill a week) and there came a day when I just had nothing to post and no time to write something up even if I could come up with an idea. I find the time to blog because it’s something I enjoy  but in this case, my focus needed to be somewhere else. It was very silly to have that number of page views in the back of my mind and how it might drop if I didn’t post that day but I know that page hits isn’t why I’m blogging. I’m a human being who has a life outside of my blog and that is the most important thing to me ALL of the time. I do work hard on my blog but because it’s something I enjoy dedicating my time to. It was very weird letting go and leaving that day empty but in a way, it was also freeing. I didn’t have to post every day. I know that I like to, but it was kind of a reminder that this isn’t something I need to do. It’s something I like to do. I think we all get into our habits and whether they’re fun or maybe a little stressful, sometimes they’re had habits to break.

The other side of that posting “schedule” involves my social media habits as well. I’m sure we all feel that there are certain “norms” — like spacing out promo tweets between personal interactions or the amount of Instagram photos we post in a day — but honestly, along with your blog, your social media accounts are YOURS. You get to choose how often you post, who you interact with, what exactly you post, and what you deem important. These accounts are yours to do whatever you want (well, hopefully you’re being respectful throughout). Whatever you post and however you post it just shows more of your own personality and who you are. If someone unfollows you or doesn’t follow you because of what you’re posting or how often you post it, then they’re not your target audience anyway. Your followers enjoy your content and that’s why they choose to follow you or interact with you. The right people will follow you.

I know it’s hard when I’m sure a vast amount of us feel like blogging is a numbers game. How many followers does my blog have? How many people follow me on Twitter? On Instagram? How many page views do I get? And sometimes it’s really hard NOT to focus on the numbers. For me? I’ve always been a numbers person, even before blogging. I absolutely LOVE statistics so my blogging stats are something that I’m just naturally drawn to. I also can’t help that I have a somewhat competitive personality (sports, grades, board games — that’s just how it’s always been) so it’s not that I’m trying to beat out other bloggers in the numbers game, but I do tend to notice when my numbers grow and I can’t help that happy feeling that happens when I hit an exciting milestone.

It’s not a bad thing to keep track of your statistics and I don’t think anyone should feel ashamed for being proud of seeing those numbers grow. If you work hard on your blog, you deserve all of the followers and recognition and rewards for the work you’re putting into it. I WILL say that may be a harmful thing if you’re blogging IN ORDER to increase your stats. (This is speaking for the majority of us who are doing this as a hobby that we enjoy.) I enjoy blogging. I enjoy watching my follower-base grow. But really, more important than the numbers are the people behind them. I created my blog over three years ago with one idea in mind: I was reading some really good books and I wanted to share my reviews with people so they might be able to enjoy them as well. To this day, that’s still my number one goal. I started writing reviews to share that joy with other people and although the some formatting and content have changed over the years, that’s still my main goal — the reviews, the fun posts, the interviews, the giveaways, the discussions — it’s all because I like voicing my opinions in the hopes that it reaches someone else and enriches their life. I hope that each new follower I get is someone who appreciates the content of my blog and maybe one of my posts brightens their day or they find a new book that they’ll enjoy. I don’t have many extraordinary talents but knowing that this blog might bring a tiny bit of joy or excitement into someone’s life makes it worth it every day and that’s what really matters when I see those numbers grow.

It’s another one of those things where there’s no “right” or “wrong” way to blog. I enjoy keeping track of my stats because statistics are just something I always enjoy. Other people couldn’t care less about followers or statistics… But when it comes down to it, the people are always the most important part of this blogging experience and my blogging life. I’ve made life-long friends, received amazing opportunities, traveled to book conferences to meet even MORE bookish people, and have met wonderful authors. I enjoy talking books to people on Twitter every day and I’m so thankful for the community that I’ve gotten to know. I keep on hoping that my blog and my posts connect with someone out there and they’re enjoying what I write because book blogging is very much about the community and what are all of those numbers anyway? They’re the people behind the stats. And I value those individuals and the way they’ve enriched my life more than the statistics they might provide my blog any day!


So weigh in with what you think! Are you a person who follows stats? What are the reasons YOU  blog?

123232132

  1. Number of books under 250 pages (not including novellas): Hmm. Sanderson’s LEGION books I GUESS are novellas, but they’re not like, series novellas in between books. Wow, more than I thought! Total number comes to six even without the LEGION novellas.
  2. Number of books read between 400-449 pages: Fifteen!
  3. Number of books read between 450-499 pages: Three
  4. Number of books read over 500 pages: TWELVE. That’s a lot, I think!
  5. Number of books read over 1000 pages: Actually none this year!
  6. Number of novellas read: 18
  7. Number of books that made you cry: Six
  8. Number of books from a female POV: 64
  9. Number of books from a male POV: 22
  10. Number of alternating or multiple POVs: 20 (though I took out some third person POVs because they covered so many characters but didn’t really alternate)
  11. Number of DNFs (did not finish): 12 (I think) — sounds like a lot, but hey. I’m not wasting my time on books I’m not enjoying anymore!
  12. Number of five star reads: 45 (including 4.5 stars that got rounded up to 5 stars on GR. 2014 was a really nice year!)
  13. Number of one/two star reads: 9 (my DNFs are not rated)
  14. Number of authors met in 2014: Ummm. Lots? Anderson’s hosts so many book events! I was going to count but with Anderson’s events + BEA… There’s just no way to count haha
  15. Number of book events attended in 2014: Hmmmm. BEA was the big one. At least two Fierce Reads events + a couple more. I’ll say between 5-10!
  16. Number of books you read in one day: 13
  17. Number of audiobooks: 26
  18. Number of 2015 books you have on pre-order: 5… for now

2324651324

  1. Book with the highest rating on Goodreads: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (4.61)
  2. Book with the lowest rating on Goodreads: No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale (3.00) BUT since I’m sure there are many 1-star ratings due to the Hale drama earlier this year, I’m also putting down the second book… Undercurrent by Paul Blackwell (3.34). I enjoyed it but I suppose I agree since I think it could have been a lot more detailed.
  3. Book read furthest away from home (vacation reads?): The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord — read it on my honeymoon in Aruba!
  4. Book that took you the longest to read: Burial Rites by Hannah Kent (31 days). I was hoping to love this as much as so many others but it was just a very slow and difficult read for me.
  5. Book that you personally connected with the most: Nantucket Red by Leila Howland. I just LOVE Cricket.
  6. Book that made you love the villain: Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson (it’s complicated), Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
  7. Book you said you’d come back to but still haven’t picked up again: (Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn. I just wasn’t in the mood when I started and I totally forgot about it.
  8. Book you read waaaay before it’s publication date: I read The Start of Me and You in November (March 31st pub date) and A Court of Thorns and Roses in December (May pub date)
  9. Book you read on your birthday: On March 11, my books of choice were The Distance Between Us by Kasie West and The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch!
  10. Book with a character who shares your name: I don’t knowwww the Brittanys in books are always the mean girls for some reason! But Mortal Heart (and all the His Fair Assassin books) take place in Brittany so that counts, right?
  11. Book you weren’t entirely truthful about when rating (Fluff up any ratings? Rated even though you didn’t finish?): Omg, wow, I’m more of a liar than I thought. There are two books and one novella that I didn’t QUITE finish (I skimmed. Hard.) but I rated them anyway (I’m not telling you which. I feel guilty because of where I got the books/what the books where/who the author was) and one book that I fluffed up the rating because I really like the author and her first book but wasn’t AS crazy about this one.
  12. Book you read in 2014 but already want to re-read: Open Road Summer, The Lies of Locke Lamora, Dangerous Girls, Mistborn, When Joss Met Matt (review to come!)
  13. Book you borrowed from a friend a long time ago and still have: All of the books that Lisa let me borrow and a copy of Sharp Objects I borrowed from my friend Maggie and now I own another copy so I can give it back soon haha
  14. Book by a foreign author/originally published in another country: Fairytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near (Australia)
  15. Book you which you could go back and read for the first time again: Dangerous Girls and Mistborn!
  16. Most books read by one author this year: 8 from Brandon Sanderson (if you count a teaser extra (I did) + 4 full-length novels and 3 short stories), and 9 from Sarah J. Maas (if you count her novellas all separately (how I read them) + 4 full-length novels)

Stat Survey This and That

image1            image2

First and last books on my shelves!

  1. Happiest & saddest: Anna and the French Kiss & I Was Here
  2. Longest & shortest: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (870 pgs) & The Truth About Alice (209 pgs)
  3. Best & worst: LOLLLL best book of 2014. Can’t possible choose. Worst was probably Evidence of Things Not Seen. I DNFed because it was just so bizarre and all over the place and graphic and boring all at the same time.
  4. First & last reads of 2014: No One Else Can Have You & Finger Lickin’ Fifteen by Janet Evanovich
  5. First & last books on your bookcase (1st book on the top left and last book on the bottom right): Shane’s books got moved to the upper right so the first is The Encyclopedia of Classic Cars. Last is Wild Hearts by Jessica Burkhardt!
  6. The most disappointing & the biggest pleasant surprise: Illusive (I even requested from the publisher and I was SO BORED that I didn’t even finish) & Mistborn (am now a superfan)
  7. Bandwagon/fandom you joined & one you abandoned: Joined Throne of Glass, abandoned The Testing trilogy. On the last book! I know! I rated both 1 & 2 four stars, but I couldn’t remember what the hell happened and was annoyed when starting book three so I said nope.
  8. Most lenient & harshest ratings: Most lenient? Hmmm maybe Dangerous Boys? I loved Dangerous Girls and I wasn’t QUITE as in love with DB but I had so much love for DG that it… overflowed haha. #scandal is probably my harshest. I finished the book but I was so disappointed. I LOVED TBoBH but this book was so disappointing and just so not my style.
  9. Most hyped & furthest under the radar that you read: Most hyped probably Throne of Glass (since I hadn’t read it yet — and that was a happy result for me!) and I’d say under the radar was Althea & Oliver? I’m not very good at reader under the radar books. I need to do more of that in 2015.

Stat Survey Grab Bag

  1. Book you read that is red: Red Seas Under Red Skies! Double red in the title too!
  2. Book you read that starts with M: Mortal Heart! <3

X // Age of X series by Richelle Mead Z // Belzhar, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (funny story. Whenever I’m tying this I always want to type “Prizoner” because I know the Z is coming up hahaha)
  6. Book that suffered some damage this year (food? water? ripped pages/cover? Ouch!): My mass market paperbacks that I carried in my purse got a little beat up, but that’s what they’re supposed to do, right? Also damaged my ARC of A Court of Thorns and Roses a little more than I should have because it was in my purse for a week or so. I carried it with me everywhere just in case I had time to read it!!!!

  8. First book you read in 2015: No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale

Earlier this month, Andi (Andi’s ABCs) and I got to talking about how much we love the end-of-the-year surveys (and really all of the other surveys) that go around, obviously Jamie’s Annual End of the Year Survey (The Perpetual Page Turner) being one of our favorites! (See a list of some of my favorite bookish surveys below!)
We started talking about our year-end surveys which lead to how many BIG books we read this year and how they should totally count for more than one book towards your Goodreads goal!
