  • My reading numbers were quite a bit better than last year. I reached my Goodreads goal of 40. For next year I have upped it again to 50. 
  • I still mourn the passing of classics from my reading.
  • Also fantasy. But I did manage a bit of that again this year!
  • I was happy to read an ARC again! That was like a blast from the past...
  • I think I gave my first 1 star review. Y'all should be proud.
  • I feel like I read more on the Kindle, but that's how the numbers shook out! Maybe I can do better and make better use of that device this next year.
  • I love reading for award long lists! I read some awesome MGs this year because of that.
  • Happy that Utah authors make a pretty good appearance on my list. 
  • I have lots of things I want to read, so I will not be dropping the habit anytime soon.

  • It's very fun to see the growth of the channel by comparing these numbers. I'm worried about what will happen this year. Here's hoping we don't see a huge drop in the numbers by this time next year!
  • Good thing we have that one popular video that is about to 2 million views! This is what is sustaining our channel right now! If only we could think up another video that would be so popular!


  1. No classics? they can be tough. I think I only read one this whole year. Which book got your one-star review? I don't dish those out as often anymore because I'm more likely to just abandon a book if it's that bad (or not a good fit for me). My balance of library/owned reading is about the same as yours! And you have allllmost convinced me to try watching a Kdrama- but I think my husband will be skeptical at first. Of possibility he might enjoy it.

    1. I gave a one start to A Totally Awkward Love Story. It was not good.

  2. Good job! I thought you read all the book club books. Ha! I don't even know how many I read, but it probably similar to your number.

    1. I was surprised that number was so low too! I didn't do any re-reads for book club. And then I think I missed a couple others, like And Then There Were None! :)
