A Reading Reflection

Last year in January, I set my reading goal at 75 books thinking that it was a fair reflection of the number of books I read. I was surprised that by the end of the year I had read 94 books (this excludes the reading that I do for work). I found the summary on Goodreads to be interesting.

My longest book was a Stephen King novel, the shortest one I had received to review.

My average rating for books is 4 as I have learned to choose my reading material well. I know what I enjoy reading and I carefully read the synopsis of novels that I pick up.

I have read some wonderful books this year by authors that were unknown to me. Three books stood out for me during 2018: The Dutch Wife by Ellen Keith (historical), Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin (contemporary), and The Black Witch by Laurie Forest. (fantasy). I loved the fantasy novel so much that I read the second in the saga and am now eagerly waiting for the third. (If you want to read my reviews, click on the titles of the books).

I enjoyed my reading journey during 2018 and look forward to discovering more authors and stories during 2019.

What was your reading journey like during 2018?

  1. I have tried to amp up my reading in 2018 – adding more fiction to my usual mix of travel, food and entertainment. I just posted about a new biography of Eve Babitz, a legendary Hollywood “IT” girl of the 70’s who is making a huge comeback including a new biography about her life – she’s a great Writer of LA in the 70’s~

  2. A great reading year for you, Colline. My stats on Goodreads are off. I realised that if you don’t click through to the very last page, Goodreads doesn’t record the book as read. I often don’t click through the last few pages of other books and author info. I am doing it now because of this.
