At the beginning of this year I decided to track how many books/novellas/screenplays I read in a year because I’d never done it before. (Note: I read a bunch of flash and short stories so I didn’t really track those…)
Here’s the list with dates I finished reading it, and my ratings of the stuff I’ve read…and this is the final part of the list for 2013 for those who’ve been following along.
+=This is a book I’ve already read that I was re-reading
*=Hated It (Usually if I hate something I don’t finish it. Life’s too short.)
**=Didn’t Like it (This usually means the book started off well then fell down OR it had some big deal-breaking plot element that ruined all the good things for me.)
***=I Liked It (I enjoyed my reading experience, probably won’t reread, though)
****=I REALLY Like It (Very much enjoyed, will re-read but falls short of inspiring my gasping, fan-girlish glee)
*****=I LOVED IT (This usually means I want to chase people down the street waving the book and screaming, “READ IT!”)
THE LIST PART FOUR
84. +Holiday Sparks by Shannon Stacey ***** (12/16/13)
^This is my favorite holiday novella. I reread it every year.
85. Twisted by Laura K. Curtis **** (12/18/13)
^I don’t usually read Romantic Suspense (too much people having sex while villains are shooting at them usually) but I really enjoyed this one. The ending was a bit over the top but I will be looking out for more from this author.
86. +Fair Game by Josh Lanyon ***** (12/22/13)
87. Die Upon a Kiss by Barbara Hambly ***** (12/28/13)
88. Wet Grave by Barbara Hambly **** (12/31/13)
And that’s it. Those are all the books I read this year. ^_^
Let’s do some stats…
Total Number of books/novellas/screenplays read: 88
New Books Read: 52
The longest it took me to read a book was 16 days for Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch.
I averaged about 4 days between books.
And the genres?
(If I read something twice this year I didn’t count it twice for this…)
Science Fiction/Fantasy: 31
