Mid Year Wrap Up

Well, I saved a few times before continuing, but I managed to make this post without too many problems. Now hopefully you all will be able to read it!

 

Books read so far: 41

Average rating: 3.4

 

I had a very slow start to the year, but my reading picked up once I started logging onto booklikes again and participating in some of the buddy reads. 


Since mystery represented such a big chunk of my reading, I decided to break it down further. The above genre chart is actually misleading since I included the fantasy mysteries in with fantasy rather than mystery (otherwise I end up double counting books and it gets confusing).

In the above chart, I arbitrarily chose a cutoff publication year of 1960 for the golden age mystery genre. I know it's not strictly speaking accurate, but a lot of the golden age mystery authors wrote well into the 1950s so I figured it was fair.

 

 

 Nothing surprising here...

 

I've started tracking non binary as a gender category, even though I don't read all that many non binary authors (this category basically includes anyone who self identifies as non binary in their bio or uses they/their pronouns).

 My diversity stats are pretty pitiful. I don't usually break down POC and LGBTQA into individual categories, although I realize that maybe I should. It would involve more editing of my spreadsheet and graphs though, and they're not mutually exclusive categories.

 

Author nationality is a fairly new thing I've started tracking, mainly just because I was curious.

 

 

I managed a few small culls of my Mount TBR but as you can see, the summer sales are trying to counteract my efforts.

So many ebooks....

 

 

Finally, some June numbers.

Books read in June: 10

Average rating for books read in June: 3.2

 

So, June wasn't quite as productive as May, but I still managed 10 books.

Phew, so many graphs!

June 2020 Wrap-Up
Maerlin's Storm - Nav Logan
Crystal Zodiac - Katie Huang
The Brothers York - Thomas Penn
The Secrets of Ayurveda - Harish Chandra Verma,Gopi Warrier,Karen Sullivan

I haven't bothered with these monthly wrap-up posts in recent months because I've got so little reading done and with moving my account, it just got lost in the shuffle.

 

So anyway, four books finished in June. Only one fiction that I chose to read and it was pretty good. Three non-fiction from Netgalley. I seem to have a backlog of those all of a sudden. Some of them are a bit woo but I do take an interest in all sorts of things.

 

I'm reading several books at once so I may have more books done by the end of July. I'm still getting back to normal reading after the end of the world in march so I'm just glad to be reading again!

School is out for the summer!
This month I had to find some activists to do with my boy since summer camps are all online and we don’t want him to have more electronics time then need be.  We got a little splash pool, a bubble kit, painting rock kit, and volcano kit.  I also found a baby bat under my outdoor table.  Don’t worry the bat moved on at night.
