2019 Statistics and Favourite Books #2| April – June

Another quarter of 2019 has gone which means we are officially halfway through the year. I have no idea where the time is going because it feels like yesterday that I was writing up my previous statistics wrap up. However, I’m back again with another one. My reading this quarter hasn’t been as great but I still managed to read 53 books in 3 months which I am thrilled about. Let’s go onto the stats for this month.

Rating:

ratingIn this quarter, I read many mediocre books. Like they were good but they weren’t ultimate favourites. Over half of my 5 star reads this quarter were re-reads so I discovered hardly any new favourites which is sad. I am happy that I read less bad books and only had 8% 2 star reads.

Age Range:

age range

This was exactly as I expected it to be. I read a lot more middle grade and adult than I thought I did and I’m sad that I didn’t read more UKYA but I knew that USYA was always going to be my largest category.

Genre:

I love how equal this is. Especially since the one novella I read was a fantasy novella so it is exactly 50/50. I usually read a lot more contemporary but I’m so happy that it’s equal this quarter.

This is a really good split. It’s close to being equal quarters but not quite. I’m happy that I had more re-reads as I’ve been loving doing my Shadowhunter re-read and I like how it’s an equal ish split of the others.

TBR:

This graph makes me sad. I’ve really been trying to read more books from my physical TBR but I’ve clearly been failing. I really need to get back onto it and focus a lot more on the books I already own.

Format:

I actually stopped listening to audiobooks back in late April because I found that I kept getting bored and I didn’t want to pay for Scribd any longer so from now, it will most likely be just e-book and physical. I’m happy that I read more physical books this year.

Gender:

Gender

This is exactly how I expected it to be. Most of the books I read are by women so I’m not even surprised at all.

Top 5 Books:

5. Allegedly by Tiffany D Jackson

I actually gave this book 4 stars but it has stuck with me and I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s such an underrated read.

4. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I finally picked this up this year and it was so good (the first book at least, in my opinion the series went downhill). I loved the world building and the characters in the first novel.

3. All The Things We Never Said by Yasmin Rahman

I’m very biased here but I loved Yasmin’s debut novel. It was stunning and wonderful. I can’t wait for more people to read it.

2. The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

This is an adult romance that I think I will be re-reading a lot in the future. It wasn’t quite on par with The Hating Game but it was so adorable and a whole lot of fun so I had to include it on this list.

1. The Paper and Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie

Lucy’s debut was absolutely wonderful and so relatable. I read it back at the start of April but it’s stuck with me and I’m dying for a re-read.

So that’s it for my statistics wrap up for the second quarter of this year. What was your favourite book of the last 3 months? Let me know down below.
