A Brief Look at February’s Reading
Well, February definitely included less reading than is typical for me, for both good and bad reasons. :) Let’s play a bit with the numbers, shall we? Just for fun.
Of the 18 books that I read…
- 13 were fiction
- 12 were by authors I’ve read before
- 9 were novels set in historical time periods
- 7 were by authors of colour
- 6 were part of a series (not the same series)
- 6 were by UK authors
- 6 were by US authors
- 6 were by authors from other countries (Trinidad, France, Japan, Canada, and Israel)
- 5 were written by men
- 4 of those books written by men were nonfiction
- 4 were audiobooks
- 4 included supernatural elements
- 3 were graphic novels
- 2 were rereads
- 2 included mysterious murders
- 2 could be shelved in the romance section of the bookstore
- 1 was written before 1900
- 0 were ebooks (I have no clue how that happened, but my hands are not pleased)
I shall have more to say about analysing reading and my wishes for a bit more focused reading for the rest of the year soon, but for now, I’m amused to discover that historical fiction has taken over my novel reading! Here I thought I was a fantasy & mystery girl for my genre reads.
Let me know if you have questions about any of the books, even if it’s just that the cover caught your eye & you’d like to hear more about what’s inside. :)
I have high hopes for March, on both the reading and blogging fronts. It’s the 3rd and I’ve already read two books, both started this month, and both regular length novels. That seems like a good sign! I’m off to snuggle under a blanket with Thistle, and see if I can’t continue that reading streak.
