#AMonthofFaves2016 & Countdown to Christmas

This Is How We Read 

I have read about 293 books this year. My Goodreads says more because sometimes I had to count single volumes of comics instead of the collected editions like I do on my blog.

Most of what I read this year falls in the fantasy category in some way.

I listened to more audio than I normally do. I think I am at 34 for the year and it was partway through the year before I got back into audios. I am hoping to listen to even more in 2017.

I read a lot of graphic novels both off of my shelves, on Scribd, and through Marvel Unlimited. I did not meet my goal of having read all of the graphic novels in my house, though. I need to do that in 2017. There really are not that many I still have to get to...

If I don't count graphic novels, my most read author this year was Mira Grant. I read 4 books under her name and 1 under Seanan McGuire, her other writing name. I think Maggie Stiefvater would come in second because I read 3 books by her. 

I managed to finish a few series this year which is always a plus. There are many others that I am starting to wonder if I will ever finish...

This is How we Blog

I have the most up and down blogging style ever. The only reason I have blogged this much in the last few months is because I have started doing so many 'themed' days. If I didn't know roughly what I was posting each day, I would have likely done one post a week and that's it. 

I don't pressure myself. My goal for blogging was to do my Week in Review post every Sunday and I have accomplished that as of right now. Anything else is just an added bonus.

I am not really technical, I really need to do something about my sidebars, so the only program I really use is Canva to make the graphics I use here and there. Otherwise, I just write up posts and stick random pictures off my computer on them.

The book I'm most looking forward to reading this Holiday season...

I honestly do not read that many Christmas novels. So, I grabbed one off my shelves this week: The Walnut Tree by Charles Todd. It has been a while since I read Charles Todd, so figured it was time to get to some of my unread books by him (well, them, as it is really a mother/son team).


  1. Whoa! Your numbers make my numbers seem pitiful in comparison.

  2. Wow! I can't believe you've read almost 300 books this year. I'll be happy if I get to 25. I wish I had more time to read AND I hadn't had the slump of all slumps this year.

  3. I love your reading style. So jealous over the number of books you got to :-)

  4. Wow - I'm in awe how many books you've read! That's fantastic. I've been blogging more this year that the past couple of years and it's probably because I've tried to be a bit more organized. So I try to plan posts not necessarily write them in advance but at least have an idea. That's helped a lot more.


Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
