Jan 312015

It’s the first monthly round-up of the year! I’m so excited about it.

This has been a very busy month with lots of ups (my son really beginning to eat actual foods) and downs (my grandfather passing away). With regards to books, I think it’s been all good.

Books read:

In Jan – 17 – Oh ya! What a great start to the year!
Year-to-date – 17

Favourite book of the month: No question, my favourite book of the month was definitely Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish. It was actually the first book I finished in 2015, and started the year off great.

Noteworthy Happenings:

I didn’t have any standard discussion posts this month, but I did start a new Book versus Movie post series. I started off by looking at The Maze Runner and Outlander. I have several more titles planned for February already.

Monthly Stats:

I love seeing people’s reading stats, and I thought that I would keep track of some for 2015. I’m maintaining an Excel spreadsheet with lots of information, but have pulled out a few pie charts to share.

Jan stat by age
First is looking at the age genres (is there an actual term for this?) of books I read. It doesn’t surprise me at all that I’ve read mostly Adult books. That’s what I’m drawn to the most.

Jan stat by genre
My genres read is all over the map. I’m keeping track of 1 or 2 genres per book, so the total number looks higher than total books read. I have a feeling there will be a more visual trend a few months into the year.

Jan stat by rating
You want proof January was a good reading month? This is it. Over half of the books read were 4 or 5 star reads! With no DNF books!

What do you think of my addition of stats to my monthly wrap-up post? Numbers and charts make me extremely happy, so I’ll continue adding them, at least until I get sick of tracking everything.
