my 2019 reading in numbers

One of the reasons I was faithful in my book log last year was so that I could analyse my reading over the year (nerd alert!). I tracked the genres, number of pages and the star rating I gave each book. Looking more closely at my log here’s what I found:

Total number of books read: 44
Total number of pages read : 16,794
Number of 400+ page books: 16

Books read on Kindle: 20
Books read on paper: 24

Fiction: 42
Non-Fiction: 2


Young Adult: 8
Historical Fiction: 2
Fantasy: 6
Classic: 2
Science Fiction: 2
Memoir: 1
Mystery/Crime: 2
Magical Realism: 3
Self-Help: 1
Middle Grade: 1
General Fiction: 18

3 Star Books: 10
4 Star Books: 28
5 Star Books: 6

Female authors: 31
Male Authors: 13
POC Author: 12

Do you ever analyse your reading habits? I will definitely continue doing this, as I see some interesting trends (clearly I need to read more male authors. Those poor guys……..). It’s going to be interesting to compare this over the years too!
