MY 2019 BLOG STATS


I love looking at my stats. Stats are a great way to see your trends when it comes to reading and just blogging in general. 2019 was a great year of reading! My blog also grew a lot this year. I made blogging a main priority this year and I hope it showed.



Let's take a look at some of my reading stats from 2019:

2019 stats

- I read way more this year than last year. This year I read 68 books! Last year, I only read 45. That increase in reading is something to be proud of for sure!

- The top publisher that I read from this year was Atria Books. This was surprising for me to see. I had no idea what publisher would rank on top for me this year. This data took the longest for me to compute. I had to go through every single book that I read and make a list. Nonetheless, this is super cool to see.

- I wasn't surprised to see that Young Adult ranked the highest for me in genre's read. Since it is my favorite genre and I consider myself a mood reader. However, Non-fiction books did make a close second. I knew I read diversely and that I rank on the higher side for non-fiction books. I didn't know that non-fiction would be this close to YA books.

- This past year, I for sure read more backlist books instead of new releases. I am still trying to lower my TBR on my bookshelves at home. I am running out of room.

Favorite Books Read In 2019 (five stars):


- Eight out of the books that I read this year are some of my new favorites. All are equally as good for so many different reasons.


Books I DNF:



- I have no problem not finishing a book that I am not liking. If it's too painful to read, I do DNF books. Even if I am almost done reading them. This past year, I DNF five books. Not too shabby if you ask me.


Blog Pageviews:

- I had a crazy amount of blog views each month! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your love and support. The months with the highest views were June, August, and December.

Top Posts:
The five posts that got the most page views this year were...

1. DISNEY SIDEKICK BOOK TAG (2019)
2. 8 GREAT SUMMER CONTEMPORARY READS (2019)
3. HEARTLESS (2019)
4. THE DINNER LIST (2019)
5. THE CHAOS OF STANDING STILL (2019)

- All of them were made and published in 2019 which was very exciting to see. It's cool to know that my most popular posts were made this past year.

2019 was one amazing year for reading and blogging! I can't wait to see what 2020 brings. My two year blog anniversary is coming up in Feb! Two years of blogging... I cannot believe it. What was your reading year like? Did you hit any milestones? I would love to know in the comments down below. Onto bigger and better things in 2020! I wish you all the best going into a new decade. 

xoxo,

    1. Yeah, I wish I wouldn't have DNF any but I won't force myself to read anything that I am not enjoying. I hope you have a wonderful new year!

  2. I love stats posts! I posted mine a few days ago. I also read more backlist books. I think I only read 2 books published in 2019. I got Evelyn Hugo for Christmas, so I’ll be reading it sometime this year.

  3. I keep all of my information in a spreadsheet so it's easy to compile at the end of the year. It includes publisher info and LOTS more! I know Val @ Voracious Reader created one this year that's similar if you want to check it out. :-)

    2. I second Val's spreadsheets, they're AMAZING and she added so much stuff this year! I'm tracking similar stats using Val's spreadsheet. I love that you also track which publishers you read!

      For your YA categories, are they different genres withing YA? Like I read mostly YA romance and YA fantasy when I read YA, but there are other genres in YA that those two... right?
