Statistics Survey 2016

Hi everyone! It’s that time of the year! I found this on Brittany aka The Book Addict’s Guide on Twitter. Brittany and Andi came up with this concept a few years ago and it took off. I saw it last year but never got around to it. So I’m doing it this year.

{See this post for more info and the Linky.}


Let’s see what 2016 was made of!


  • Number of books read…
    • Under 250 pages (not including novellas): I don’t think I read too many novellas this year. So, we’re going to go with 65-ish books.
    • Between 400-449 pages: 2
    • Between 450-499 pages: 2
    • Over 500 pages:  0
    • Over 1000 pages: 0
  • Number of…
    • Audiobooks: 0. I don’t read audiobooks.
    • Re-reads: None that I can think of. I was hardcore working on challenges this year. No re-reads for me!
    • DNFs (did not finish): 3 books. Heirs: Secrets and LiesBecause of YouWrong Then Right.
  • Number of books rated…
    • Five Stars: 27. However, only 10 of those made it into my Absolute Top Ten.
    • One/Two Stars: 0 One Stars and 1 Two Stars.
  • Number of authors met in 2016: Unfortunately, this one is a big old zero.
  • Number of book events attended in 2016: This needs to change. 0.
  • Number of books you read in one day: Maybe 3? From Dewey’s 24 hr readathon.
  • Number of books that made you cry: Quite a few. Maybe 5 or 6?
  • Number of 2017 books you have on pre-order: Just one. THE YOU I’VE NEVER KNOWN by Ellen Hopkins


  • Book read furthest away from home (vacation reads?): Hmm. There’s a few that I read while I visited my parents. South Dakota baby!
  • Book that took you the longest to read: I would have to say it would be The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend. It took me about 3 weeks.
  • Book that you personally connected with the most: It Ends With Us. I can’t say for spoiler reasons.
  • Book that made you love the villain: Too Late by Colleen Hoover. That damn Asa. He was a really good villain.
  • Book you said you’d come back to but still haven’t picked up again: Because Of You.
  • Book you read waaaay before it’s publication date: Uh… A few? Lol Can’t think of any off the top of my head. Usually, I’m late with publication dates. Haha. Unless it’s a physical copy. Reason is completely unknown.
  • Book you read on your birthday: 30 Nights
  • Book with a character who shares your name: None that I read this year!
  • Book you weren’t entirely truthful about when rating (Fluff up any ratings? Rated even though you didn’t finish?): I’m pretty truthful when I rate books.
  • Book you read in 2016 but already want to re-read: Too Late!!!
  • Book you borrowed from a friend a long time ago and still have: None actually. I don’t tend to borrow books
  • Book you which you could go back and read for the first time again: Well now. This is a loaded question. There are way too many books I would love to read for the first time.
  • Most books read by one author this year: Amber Bardan with 5 books!


  • Happiest & saddest: A Wedding for Christmas and I can’t choose the saddest book!

    • By page number: 29 and 474
    • By title: Christmas with Us and Missing Parts
    • From buying to reading: Idk!
  • Best & worst…
    • Average rating on Goodreads: 4.1 stars
    • Books you read/your rating: Not telling yet! Look out for my Top 6 post next weekend!
    • Series enders: Pretty Lost Dolls (best!) and I don’t have a worst series ender.
  • First & last…
    • Reads of 2016: Death in A Major and (currently reading) The Drifter
    • Books on your bookcase (1st book on the top left and last book on the bottom right): Sadly, I don’t have a bookcase right now…
  • Most disappointing & biggest pleasant surprise: Hmm. I would have to say the biggest disappointment would be The Perfect Girl. It just didn’t do it for me. and The biggest surprise would be Thrity Days to Thirty. I heard some not-so-good things about that one but I really enjoyed it.
  • Fandom you joined & one you abandoned: I don’t really have fandoms… Don’t kill me!
  • Series you picked up & series you quit: None actually.
  • Most lenient & harshest ratings: None. I’m pretty good at sticking to my ratings.
  • Most hyped & furthest under the radar that you read: Most hyped would definitely be It Ends With Us. Furthest from the hype would be The Mistletoe Series by Tia Siren. I haven’t seen anyone else read them.

  • Book that became an instant go-to recommendation: It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
  • Furthest out of your comfort zone: The two historical fiction books I read this year: The Lost Girls // The Woman in the Photo
  • Read on a recommendation (that you may not have picked up yourself): Quite a few, especially because of the Quirky Blind Dates.
  • Forced yourself to finish: Not too sure. I did DNF 3 reads this year.

State of the ARC


  1. Too Late was so good. I would totally re-read it, too!

  2. Avatar Random Reads says:

    What a great post! You posted and reviewed so much! I slacked off to next to nothing for around half of the year.

    1. I feel the same way. I feel so pressured to do reviews and I’m not a great writer so I feel pressured about that too..

      1. Avatar Random Reads says:

        I think I feel more pressured to do normal posts. I’m sure you’re a great writer!

        1. Practice makes perfect 🙂 I’ll figure it out someday, hopefully <3 Good luck

    2. Kendra Kendra says:

      That’s ok though. Some slacking off is definitely a requirement of book bloggers. 😉 It can’t be all work and no play…

  3. What a great survey to sum up the year. I may have to steal (and credit of course) this.

  5. Eek! I just got The You I’ve Never Known from Edelweiss, and I can’t wait to read it. Looks like you had a great year! 🙂

    1. I lied. It was Netgalley haha!
