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.
In 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
