The time has come to say goodbye to another year and welcome in a new one. I had a really good reading year in 2014 and as always I am looking forward to see what this new year will bring. And with the end of one year comes one of my favorite things to do in the new one….putting together my year end review post. So here it is….my 2015 reading year in review. (Caution: Graphs ahead!)
Total Books = 175
Total Pages = 45,722
Total Audio Hours = 223
Average Days per Books = 1.98
Average Books per Day = 0.50
Average Pages per Day = 131
My best reading month was July where I read 20 books for a total of 4213 pages and 19 audio book hours. My worst month was November where I only read 10 books and 2,111 pages which isn’t all that bad in the grand scheme of things. November was also the month were I listened to the most audiobook hours, 42.5 – which was 4 different audios. The full breakdown for books/pages read by month for the year looks like this:
For 2015, I read an average of 15 books, 3810 pages, and listened to 19 hours of audio every month. Which is pretty darn good if you ask me. And now for the first graph of the day…my 2015 reading year, as charted to my previous years, well, those in which I started to keep an excel spreadsheet for stats.
2014 was also a good year for audio books and with the exception of my summer hiatus. As I said above my best listening month was March with over 40 hours of audio listened to. This came in the form of one book, The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, which was absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend it to all. In total I listened to 21 audiobooks and I hope that in 2014 that I can bring this number up to 25 or so.
In terms of book ratings 34% of the books read had a rating of 4 stars or above. Although overall my reads for the year were just average with around 45% of my reads rated at just 3 stars. It seems the longer that I review books the harder I become on them. Though I did rate 31% of my overall books at 4 stars which is pretty darn good if you ask me. So, I’m not that hard….maybe. lol Here are my rating from 2015 done visually because graphs are fun!
Every year I always get asked what my favorite book of the year and as any reader knows that is a daunting task! So I started to chose my top book from each month and then from those twelve books its a little bit easier to chose my favorite of the year. My Top 12 books for 2015 were:
JAN – Lady Thief by AC Gaughen
FEB – Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
MAR – Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
APR – Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
MAY – Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
JUN – The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick
JUL – Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Aimee Kaufman
AUG – Violent Ends by Shaun David Hutchenson, et al
SEP – The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows (review to come)
OCT – Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn (review to come)
NOV – The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas (review to come)
DEC – The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson (review to come)
All of these books are absolutely worth your time in reading them. These are the books that have really stayed with me of the course of the year. From those twelve books I can further narrow it down to the following:
These are the books that once I started them I couldn’t stop reading until I was done. They are the one books that I gave 5 stars to and they are all very special to me in some way. These books made me laugh and they made me cry. They turned me into a book bully for them and they have all been read more than once. But there can only be one book that is the best of the best and I am sure that it will come as no surprise to some that my most favorite of the 175 books I read in 2015.
This is one of those books that really stayed with me and I fall in love with it each and every time I read it. It was the first book of 2015 that I gave a 5 star rating to and I read it in April. Once I finished SIMON VS I promptly flipped to the first page and proceeded to read it over again…and again. And even now it has a permanent spot on my nightstand so I can re-read my favorite scenes. If there is ever an author that I’m all antsy pants excited for a new book from it is Becky Albertalli. SIMON VS also just won the Morris Award so you know its a big deal especially since it had some stiff competition. =)
This past year instead of doing any formal challenges I set a few personal reading goals for myself with some mixed results. Some categories I did amazingly well in and others, well, its as if I didn’t try at all. I’m such a mood reader so it can be hard to rely on a TBR jar and while I am a pretty eclectic reader I’m just not drawn to Middle Grade stories even though I know there are some amazing reads. It should also be noted that some books were placed in several different categories. Even though I “failed” at some of my goals I am pleased with my overall reading year.
I also kept track of the genres that I read. I’ve used my gut reaction to chose one genre for each book. Although I am aware that sometimes it is possible for a book to be classified in more than one. Based on what I read the genres fall out like this:
How does this compare to previous years? Well I am glad you wondered that because I have a graph for that. I know…this shocks you tremendously!
I’ve also tracked what age range of books I read and graphed them out (shocker) and those results can be seen below.
Another thing that I like to track is the gender of the author that I read. And as with previous years I read far more female authors than male authors but I did do better than I did in 2014 so I’m calling that a win.
Another thing I track is, how I acquired the books that I read during a calendar year. This data just encompasses the books that I read over the course of the year and doesn’t include all the books that I have obtained. In 2015, most of the books I read were books that I purchased (54) or that came from an ARC Program (43 titles from Netgalley or Edelweiss). I also read 46 books from that were sent to me by a publisher or an independent publicity firm.
I also track the format that I used to experience a book and because I am a total nerd I made a graph for it. E-books and e-galleys dominated my reading and counted for 95 of the books that I read. This is becoming a bit of a trend as ebooks were the top of my 2013 and 2014 reading as well. For some reason, this always seems to surprise me but it makes sense as my kindle is so much easier for this mood reader to carry around. And its easy to pull up an ebook when I get stuck waiting somewhere unexpectedly.
New to my reading tracker this year were three new categories: Diversity, Year Published, and POV. For diversity, I focused on the characters that were in the books. This could mean that a character was gay or a person of color and I think I may have included religion if it was mentioned. I tracked if the diversity mentioned was in the main characters or supporting and for any book where it was unknown I recorded it as NA. This is a category that I plan to track in 2016 but I don’t think I’ll go back and add in my previous years reading because while I do have an exceptional memory for books I am not a savant and so may miss books. Overall, I am pleased that 49% of my reading included some sort of diversity.
For the year published, most of the books I read were published in 2015 and this is something that I think I want to try and change in the coming year. While I do love reading new titles I do want to put some more focus on backlist titles that I may have missed. If I get bored one day I may go back and backfill my previous years reading to see how I did but I make no promises.
Finally, I decided to track the POV of the books I was reading. I was curious to see how this would breakdown. In some ways, I’m not surprised that the POV of most of the books I read were from female characters as most of the authors I read are females. I was initially surprised to see that I read almost as many with an alternating POV but then when I thought about how many romances I read, well, this shouldn’t shock me. This is another one that I will continue to track in 2016 but not sure I’ll go back and back populate previous years.
Well, that’s it for the graph/stats portion of the post which I hope you enjoyed and if you are still reading then you must have. If there are any stats you think I should track in the coming year then please leave me a comment below. I’m always looking for new graphs to make after all!
2015 End of Year Survey
Best Book of 2015 – Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli!!!!
Worst Book of 2015 – Spintered by A.G. Howard
Most Disappointing Book of 2015 – Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray. I loved the first books, A Thousand Pieces of You (my review), so very muchly and was so excited for its sequel but it just didn’t have the same wow feel for me.
Most Surprising Book of 2015 – The Friend Zone by Kristen Callihan. I’m not really sure why I picked this one up as I really didn’t like the first book in the series, The Hook Up (my review.) But there was something about Gray Grayson in the first book that intrigued me so I gave his story a try and I fell in love.
Best Series Discovered in 2015 – There are a few series that I started this year but I think the one that stands out the most is Elle Kennedy’s Off-Campus series. They are just fun, quick reads with an amazing cast that I just gobble right up. These series is filled with laughs (Winston!) and heart achy feels and I am definitely looking to reading more of them in the coming year.
Series That Went Off the Rails For You in 2015 – Not sure if any series really went fully off the rails for me in 2015. As I said above, I was disappointed in Ten Thousand Skies Above You but I will still read the final book to see how it will all end.
Favorite New Author You Discovered in 2015 – This is a hard one to narrow down but I think its a tie between Becky Albertalli and Elle Kennedy.
Most Hilarious Read of 2015 – This is another hard one to narrow down because I read a few books that made me laugh out loud. There was The Friend Zone by Kristen Callihan, The Mistake and The Score by Elle Kennedy, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, and also The Rogue Not Taken by Sarah MacLean. Ugh…I can’t choose just one….so there you have it, a list.
Book That Made You Cry the Hardest in 2015 – I don’t recall crying over any book in 2015 but I came closest with Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman…oh my stars the feels that were felt in that book!!
Most Thrilling, Unputdownable Book in 2015 – This one also goes to Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufmann. I read the bulk of this 600+ page book in a single sitting….and in record time too. It was just so engrossing and amazing and I am DYING for book 2!!
Book You Most Anticipated in 2015 – Half Wild by Sally Green and Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy.
Favorite Cover of a Book You Read in 2015 – There were a few covers that I fell in love with in 2015 and they were Better Than Perfect by Melissa Kantor, Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally, PS I Like You by Kasie West, Lion Heart by AC Gaughen, Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy, and The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson.
Most Beautifully Written Book in 2015 – Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
Book That Had the Greatest Impact on You in 2015 – I think that every book I read has an impact on me. Every book leaves some sort of mark even if its a book that I don’t end up liking very much.
Book You Can’t Believe You Waited until 2015 to Read – Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead (2010) and Welcome Caller This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell (2012)
Book of 2015 You Wish You Had Written – I’m not a writer so there wasn’t a book that I read that I wish I had written. I am just so very grateful to those who do write for putting out so many great stories for me to read. And thankful to the agents and publishers who gave them a chance.
Best Book You Read In 2015 That You Read Based SOLELY On A Recommendation From Somebody Else: The Deal by Elle Kennedy which was recommended to me by Andi from AndiABCs and Nimona by Noelle Stevenson which was recommend to me by Sarah from Sarah Reads Too Much
Best book that was out of your comfort zone or was a new genre for you? Off the top of my head, I can’t really think of any one book that was out of my comfort zone this past year.
Book You Read In 2015 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year? Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman, Built by Jay Crownover, and PS I Like You by Kasie West.
Favorite Relationship From A Book You Read In 2015 (be it romantic, friendship, etc) Oh my stars this is a tough one!!! I can’t choose….I just….I can’t. There are just so many relationships that I loved. So I’m going rogue and just ignoring this one. Maybe later I’ll have a better answer but as of now I can’t pick.
Favorite Book You Read in 2015 From An Author You’ve Read Previously? PS I Like You by Kasie West, Built by Jay Crownover, The Rogue Not Taken by Sarah MacLean, The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare, Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally….and I could probably go on but those were the first ones I thought of. 2015 was a pretty darn good reading year.
Book you read in 2015 that you recommended to people most in 2016? Pretty much all of the books that I’ve mentioned above.
Genre You Read The Most From in 2015? Contemporary Romance and Fantasy.
Best 2015 debut you read? Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli and Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
Most vivid world/imagery in a book you read in 2015? The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows
1. One Book You Didn’t Get To In 2015 But Will Be Your Number 1 Priority in 2016? You by Caroline Kepnes
2. Book You Are Most Anticipating For 2016 (non-debut)? Half Lost by Sally Green, Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally, The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, The Beauty of Darkness by Mary Pearson, Us by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, Out of Frame by Megan Erickson….and probably several others that I am not thinking about right now.
3. 2016 Debut You Are Most Anticipating? In Real Life by Jessica Love (which I’ve already read and loved! Put this one on your list people!) What debuts are you anticipating that I should know about?
4. Series Ending You Are Most Anticipating in 2016? Mary Pearson’s Remnant Chronicles and Sally Green’s The Half Bad Trilogy.
5. One Thing You Hope To Accomplish Or Do In Your Reading/Blogging In 2016? To get caught up on my review backlog.
