Year to date reading summary

I debated whether to post a book summary, but it seems so obvious that all you booklikers help me read more so I thought I'd share some pretty graphs. As you can see, my numbers of books skyrocketed in May. I started posting on booklikes again sometime in April.

 

 

Of course, it's not quite as impressive when you look at the number of pages read. Basically, I read more shorter books. In May, my average book length was 288 pages.

 

A reading summary wouldn't be complete without some information on genres and authors.


 

My average rating for May was 3.6 stars, but this histogram is for the whole year from January to May.

 

Included just for curiosity's sake, here is the spread of publication years I've read so far this year.

 

I continue to pursue a losing battle with my growing Mount TBR.

 

 

And these graphs are just for May!

Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – May 2020

 

WELCOME to May’s


Monthly Wrap Up

 

What did I do in May?  I stayed home… We are still staying home and not going out. The only out is us walking around the block or bike riding on our street. We did buy a treadmill. My husband has bad allergies and every time he goes out he has issues, so we picked one up. I’ve not been into reading/listening and I’m in another slump. What I have been doing is watching TV shows on Amazon Prime. My current two shows are Chicago P.D. and Law & Order SVU. Chicago P.D. has a lot of episodes that continue or pop over from the other Chicago shows like Chicago Med and Fire, so I’m missing out on a lot of plot and completion of episodes; because the other Chicago series’s aren’t on Prime. Not sure what I’ll watch next. Any Prime suggestions?

 

The other news in life is that school is over. THANK GOODNESS!! My son has completed grade two. No news on wither school will start in the fall. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I don’t want to have to teach again. I had to do so much online research and video watching to figure out his work and make sure I was teaching him correctly. 

 

 

It’s been a really slow month on reading/listening for me. I’m in another slump….
It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis (ARC), Wild Cat (Audio), The Beast In Him (Audio), The Mane Event (Audio) & Born of Darkness (Audio).
