Reading in April

LOL Just 13 books during a #readathon month? I have to remind myself that the count is low because I didn’t grab a stack of picture/early reader books from the Cybils shortlist, like I usually do. So 13 books is GOOD. It’s very good! Gah.

Non-fiction – 9
Graphic novels – 1
YA – 2
Queer – 1
Audio – 1


Reading in March

Oops. Well not really. I knew it would be a light month with two separate trips plus Michelle Belle coming to visit. Still. Eight total. Oy.

2 were audiobooks
2 were YA
NO non-fiction, sheesh

April will be better.

Reading in February

Another good reading month for me. Yay, reading!

16 total!

1 audio
1 graphic novel
1 YA (which was also the audiobook)
5 non-fiction

March is maybe going to be a little less successful… lots of travel coming up.

Reading in January

This was a pretty good month for reading, particularly since I was sicker than I’ve been in ages, for the first couple of weeks of the month. And, I started a new job. And, I did a lot of stuff that didn’t involve lying around and reading.

10 books total. Not bad, not bad at all. Really not bad when I look at what I read. I read some good stuff!

2 audiobooks
3 non-fiction
1 middlegrade fiction
1 that might or might not have been YA. (I don’t think it was, but I’m noting it just because)

Reading in December

Welp. 17 books for the month. Pretty darn good, all things considered.

11 were Cybils.
6 were non-fiction.
1 was an audiobook.

Ho hum.

Reading in November

Welp. Down to the wire. Whatever my overall goal was for the year, I’m not gonna make it. But, let’s look on the bright side — November wasn’t a bad month for me. Not bad at all.

Total Read: 11

Non-fiction: 3
Cybils Shortlist: 6 (mostly YA but some middle grade)

We are listening to the longest audiobook, ever. OMG so long… we may never finish it…

Reading in October

It was another one of those weird months — this one was exceptionally weird since I traveled three times and that hasn’t happened in forever. And, of course, I don’t read much while I’m traveling. So. I’m going to need another couple of #fakereadathon days. (Speaking of which, we missed #readathon again. Sigh. It’s been a rough year. Next year will be better!) Onward…

Total read: 8

5 were from the Cybils shortlist
4 were graphic novels
1 was an audiobook
1 was non-fiction


Reading in September

No complaints from me, this month, on the reading front. It’s pretty much what I expected it to be and I’m good with that. I am pretty sure this will be the first year that I don’t actually complete the Cybils Shortlist Challenge… ugh. But, let’s not think of that right now. Let’s look at the numbers for the month.

Total: 20

Audio: 1
YA: 6
Children’s: 8
Cybils: 12
Graphic Novels: 3 (quit one)
Queer: 1
Non-Fiction: 2 (quit one)

The quits, man. Those were rough… October will be questionable due to all of the travel on my calendar. I’ll be lucky to finish 10. (Forget the Cybils challenge, my EOY numbers are going to be pathetic, lol.)

Reading in July

It was a better month for reading but not nearly as good as I’d hoped. The RNC and DNC got in the way, darn it. Also, the social life. Goodness, the social life!

I read 9 books.

1 was an audiobook
2 were non-fiction
4 were middle grade/YA
3 were Cybils

In August, we’re doing a fake #readathon and that should help. Hopefully.

Reading in June

Lol. This is getting ridiculous.

I read three books in June. THREE. THREE. How can that even be possible? Remember when 13 was a not great month for me? Whatever, I’m going to have a better reading month in July. Seriously.

1 was an aduiobook
1 was non-fiction
1 was HORROR

(Interestingly, two of the three books were written by blogger friends. Funny how that worked out.)
