TOTAL BOOKS: 30
Total pages: 9,432

From the MG category:
5 stars: 6
4 stars: 11
3 stars: 8
2 stars: 5
- I'm about 50 books behind my normal. When I say slump, I mean slump.
- But the trend for reading still pretty much followed the same pattern.
- Even with the slump, I read more nonfiction and classics than normal.
- What I really missed because of the slump: some adult fantasy/science fiction books.
- I only did one read along this year. I missed doing more of those too.
- I have a huge pile of books to get to this year. Here's hoping that my focus for reading gets better and my desire to read comes back, and my time for reading can be rediscovered!
- I really love YA contemporaries!
Other Numbers Not Book Related
(that I'd like to record even it it's only for my future knowledge):
Total Kdramas consumed: 18
(9 five hearted ones, 5 four hearted ones)
Total Videos Made for the Kpop Konverters channel: 162
(6 of them with over 10,000 views, 9 with over 5,000 views)
Subscribers for the youtube channel at year end: 4,728
Total views: 395,398 (that's not counting the views that were stolen from us due to the copyright strike)
- the YouTube endeavor has proved to be much more viable than anticipated
- the YouTube kpop community is every bit as passionate and active as the book blogging community
- editing videos takes up a lot of my book reading time
- subjects/ideas/plans for future videos for this year is a long long list. I feel like all my ideas for what to talk about regarding books just switched to kpop music. It's a bit of a whiplash feeling.
Even with the slump, I've definitely had a fun year. Here's to the next one! I'd love to find a balance between the two passions! Wish me luck!!
