For each user, Goodreads just published their “My Year in Books” post.
please click on the logo to read mine.
I never understand why they do this so early: yes, I will not reach my 100 books goal, but I should be able to read 10 more before the end of the year.
Three books that stand out:
is highlighted as the longest book I read this year. And I enjoyed each of its 688 pages.
Love and Invention
is listed as the Highest rated on Goodreads: 4.86! Congrats to Benjamin Constable
I Let You Go
is the most popular of my 2018 reads: 96,330 other people read it as well.
I gave it 4 stars, but didn’t take time to review it!
At the beginning of 2019, I will be publishing my detailed statistics for 2018.
ANY SURPRISE IN YOUR YEAR IN BOOKS?
Wow, you had a great year! I agree, Goodreads puts out that link way too early. A lot can change in a month! I think I will wait until later in the month to share mine.
actually, no, my year is pathetic, basically 25 books less than usual
I have not looked at mine yet. I think it is unconscionable that they post these so early. What do they think? We don’t read anything in December? I think it is a marketing ploy or reeks of click bait mentality. I do know they have one of my books read on my list twice and I can’t get the duplicate removed. Oh well, I guess we all have flaws.
yes, totally crazy
There are so many Marakami books that I want to read, but they are so deep and some of them are very long. Glad you enjoyed that one. 🙂
Colorless Tsukuru is not long, and a good one
I always wait until the last day or so before posting my end of year stats because I’m always hopeful of finishing one more or finding a new favorite. Looking forward to reading your end of year stats!
same here, and I read a lot of books in December!
I agree, I can’t stand to think of my Year in Books as final until December 31st (or January 1st). 🙂
and I read some amazing ones in December that made my list of best of the year
I used to be a big challenges fan, but now I try to stick to perpetual challenges. I’m a mood reader, and I don’t like anyone telling me what I have to read (even myself).
same here, that’s why I’m only at 2 now, instead of 12 or in younger years
