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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
