A Year in Review | 2020 Reading Stats

Hello Everyone! I think we were all relieved to see 2020 end. This is the first year I’ll be doing a survey of my reading stats and I’m really excited to look back at all the reading I did. I read significantly less than I have in the past years but I noticed I focused a lot more of reading what I wanted to read, instead of what I felt like I had to.


TOTAL NUMBER OF BOOKS READ: 97 / 100

PAGES READ: 39,368

LONGEST BOOK: 766 pages

SHORTEST BOOK: 267 pages

AVERAGE RATING: 3.8 stars

MOST READ GENRE:
I’m really not surprised my most popular genre is fantasy. However, my goal was to read more diversely across the genres so in that aspect I’m actually pretty happy that it was less than 50%. Contemporary romance is my next most read genre which makes total sense considering I’ve really gotten into reading those books in the past few years.

MOST READ AGE GROUP:
I’m so happy with my stats for this! In past years, I would bet the majority of my reading was Young Adult books. In the last year I’ve not only felt that I’ve begun to grow out of YA, but I really wanted to explore more adult books in genres I love. I’m hoping to continue this trend into 2021 as well!

MOST READ FORMATS:
Unsurprisingly, I read mostly e-books on my Kindle. Although, I do believe I read more physical books this year than previously and I made a more of a conscious effort to read the hard copies of books I already owned. My goal for this year is to increase that number to 25%!

I will say that I’m really impressed with the amount of backlisted titles I was able to read this year. And I cannot believe half of all the books I read last year were ARCs. That seems like such an absurdly large number!


I’m looking forward to another year of reading some wonderful books and I can’t wait to see how my stats compare at the end of 2021!
