Another month in which I continue to be terrible at blogging. I'll remember how it works one of these days, you guys. Hopefully...
In the meantime, let's wrap up my reading month!
Books read: 35. It's beyond ridiculous.
New vs rereads: 18 vs 17. HURRAH. Although this was mostly the product of a decision to spend the last 6ish weeks of the year rereading my favourite books rather than rereading things I'm only half interested in because I feel like I have to.
Most read genre: This one was the product of much work, but it's not contemporary!! It is, in fact, a tie between sci-fi and fantasy.
Favourite book: As far as rereads are concerned? Persuasion by Jane Austen, because it's my favourite book of ever. If we're talking new books? I suspect The Martian by Andy Weir has taken out my favourite pick.
Least favourite book: Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich. Totally unnecessary Christmas special-y novella that suddenly added a bunch of paranormal elements to an existing world with zero explanation.
Favourite cover: OH GOD SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM. I'm going to make it a three way tie between the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling, Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray, and Because You'll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas.
Diverse Books Project: It's...going. I've been making a concerned effort to pick books from outside the western world, especially the US, UK and Australia. But it's proving difficult to find (read: physically get hold of, not discover) books that are set in Africa, Asia, and South America that AREN'T literary fiction. And where time limits are involved, literary fiction isn't usually my friend...
In November, I ended up reading 2 graphic novels, 2 non-fiction books and 31 novels. There are links to all of my Goodreads reviews below.
