2020 Year in Review

Hello Kittens! In the interest of feeding my inner data nerd, here are my reading stats for the year:

Books read: 137

Pages read: 43,389

Longest book read: The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon (830 pages)

Shortest book read: The Big Bed by Bunmi Laditan (32 pages)

Favorite book of the year: Legendborn by Tracy Deonn

Runner up for favorite book of the year: The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

Least enjoyable book of the year that I actually finished: The Return by Rachel Harrison. The book itself was…fine. I think my issue was that it was pitched to me as more of a thriller/mystery and it ended up being a weird horror book. It was my only one star book this year, but it has a 3.26 rating overall on Goodreads, so obviously my opinion does not match the majority on this one.

Most books read in one month: 16 (September)

Least books read in one month: 8 (February)


This year I started or continued with 26 different series. That’s a lot of series. I am caught up or finished with 5 of them…That’s not many. I’m hoping to continue working on some more of these this year, primarily in audiobook since a bunch of them are the cozy mysteries that I listen to when I’m driving.

Series I’m working on (you’ll see the series title and my current progress on it):

*I am not including any of the series that I have started that don’t already have a second book published, since my progress on those series is not determined by my willingness to read them, but by the rate at which they will be published.*

Themis Files (1/3)

Hannah Swensen Mysteries (7/27) ongoing series

The Great Library (1/5)

Illuminae Files (2/3)

It’s been an interesting year for reading, and I can’t wait to see what 2021 will hold.
