Because we all like a box of crunchy numbers for New Year.
In 2013 I read 62 books – my target was 60.
Of those 62 books, I gave 8 Five Stars on Goodreads. Six of those were new reads, the other two were re-reads. Those 6 were :
Hive Monkey – Gareth L Powell
The Ocean at the End of the Lane – Neil Gaiman
Farenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
The Lies of Locke Lamora – Scott Lynch
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her own Making – Catherynne M Valente
Between Two Thorns – Emma Newman
I read 34 books by men, 26 books by women, and two anthologies.
As a pie chart, that looks like this :
And this is how it broke down by genre.
I should probably try to read a little more outside of genre in this coming year… Although I’m looking at my Urgent TBR and thinking that’s unlikely. But I’ll have a go!
