I complete this survey every year (check out my End of Year Book Survey 2014 and End of Year Book Survey 2015), and think it’s a great way to round off your reading and blogging year. Thanks to Jamie @ The Perpetual Page Turner for inventing this Survey, and THANK YOU to all of you who read my blog, comment on my posts, and visit me here in my cosy corner of the Internet! I hope you had an excellent 2016, and wish you all health, happiness and love in 2017!
Number Of Books You Read:
Every year I set my Goodreads Challenge to 52 books. In 2014 and 2015, I was able to achieve and exceed this goal, but 2016 was the first time I haven’t hit it since I started blogging. In the last week of the year I tried to squeeze a few more in (which was greatly helped by the super-easy-to-read and very addictive Selection series!). But in the end, I managed to read 48 books.
Number of Re-Reads:
Genre You Read The Most From:
Contemporary (in all of its forms!) was definitely my most-read genre this year, followed by mystery-thrillers and fantasy, which is probably standard every year.
I’m pleased that my YA and Adult reads are about even, but this year I’m really surprised and loving the fact that my Non-Fiction reads are higher than normal. I’m really wanting to keep that up.
1. Best Book You Read In 2016?
I did a Top Ten Tuesday post highlighting my favourite ten books of 2016, but for this question I’ve narrowed it down to my absolute favourite books from those ten. The Double Life of Mistress Kit Kavanagh (Historical, based on true story), A Court of Mist and Fury (Fantasy), Me Before You (Contemporary Romance), On The Other Side (Contemporary Fantasy), It Ends With Us (New Adult Romance), Empire of Storms (Fantasy).
