January 2018 Stats

jan2018 stats.jpg

I had a really good reading month in January. This could be due to the fact that I was on holidays for some of it and the 24in48 hour readathon took place. 20 books is a lot for me to get through in any given month but at least it gives me a lot of juicy statistics to work my way through. 

I am still working on the best format for these monthly wrap ups but I use a combination of this spreadsheet created by Let's Read on youtube and the Book Riot Reading Log. The combination means I have way too many charts that I know what to do with so I thought I would share.

Note that this is just a selection from my spreadsheet. I track many more categories but it would be a lot longer post if I included them all. The end of year wrap post will include ALL the juicy stats so there is something to look forward to ;) 

Click on the below graphs to my expectations vs reality and explanations behind some of the results. 

At the bottom of the post will be all the 20 books I read, grouped by star rating if you aren't that bothered by the stats. The review of the books will be hyperlinked so you will be able to see what I thought of each book. 

Please click the heart symbol below this post if you like this format for a monthly wrap up and leave a comment if any of the stats are a surprise, if you have read any of the books listed or if you also like to lose yourself in large amounts of book data.

I can't wait to see what the rest of the reading year will look like. 

Happy Reading x
