I was reading Andi’s Twitter timeline and saw that she was co-hosting A Month of Faves. I thought I’d jump in with my own Faves, though I probably won’t do all of them. Check out the Event Schedule.
Today’s theme is My Reading Year.I can’t complain too much about my reading year, unlike last year. I forgot what a terrible reading year 2014 was. I’ve read 59 books so far (out of 60 I planned to read for the Goodreads challenge). 9 of those were Lumberjanes, but that’s okay. In fact, I read a number of graphic novels and comics, including Through the Woods by Emily Carroll and Step Aside, Pops by Kate Beaton.
This year I discovered the “dime novel” genre with the crazy The Oath of Vengeance. I found a new real life heroine in Flora Sandes who wrote of her adventures during World War I in An English Woman Sergeant in the Serbian Army. I got up close and personal with two celebrities: Mindy Kaling and Aisha Tyler. I read new-to-me tales from my old pals Edith Wharton, Alexandre Dumas, and Shirley Jackson.
During the RIP X Challenge, I read two different monkey related stories. I also participated in the Monkalong (The Monk Readalong). That was a lot of fun!
Numbers: Four of my reads were short story collections, which was a lot for me. Sixteen of my books read were audiobooks. I love audiobooks! Fifteen books were by non-white authors. Eight were non-fiction, five romance, ten horror, five mystery. I plan on breaking down my book stats later this year, so this is just a quick peek.
So, that was My Reading Year in one short post! What did your year look like?
