So I have been reading my ass off this year. Far more than I have read in any other year of my life. At the beginning of the year I set my Goodreads challenge at 48 books. One book a week felt like too much, so I went with 4 books a month and set a stretch goal of 100 books. Because why not, right? It's good to have goals. I also set a goal to read (eyes on print) every day this year, 365 days, and am currently at 173 days.
For the last 2 years I have been keeping a pretty detailed reading spreadsheet that I got from Rachel Manwill from Book Riot. (NEW YEAR, NEW GOALS, NEW AND IMPROVED READING LOG). It's way more than a casual reader needs, but I'm not a casual reader, yo. And here are my stats:
As of June 23, I have read and listened to:
While I've always preferred YA, I hit a serious wall with YA in April and then all fiction in general. Nonfiction was the only thing that didn't just irritate me (Lumberjanes aside). So in the last couple months I have read The New Jim Crow (infuriating), I Contain Multitudes (fascinating, you actually do have cooties), The Nature Fix (go outside folks), The Orchid Thief (the geographical history of Florida and the world of orchids, my god. I had no idea), The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up, and two very comprehensive books about tea. (I'm kind of a tea expert now). The only fiction that snuck in was A Gathering of Shadows and A Conjuring of Light, both on audio, and both amazing.
