Goodreads Challenge 2019 Summary and Stats

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my final blog post of 2019! It is time to look back at all the books I read during the year, and compile some rather interesting statistics relating to them, which provide a useful insight into my current reading habits and preferences.

My Goodreads target for the year was 50 books, which felt very achievable considering that I had managed to read a total of 61 in 2018. I reached the target in October, and have ended 2019 having finished 58 books in all, with two more still on the go.

Considering that I have had less time to read in 2019, and have read longer books, I am really pleased with how many books I have been able to finish! Here are some statistics…
