At Least I Have Books: 2018 Wrap-Up

harley baking fail

December seemed to fly by. Along with all things Jason Momoa I’ve developed an unhealthy obsession with baking competitions. I’ve watched the adults and now I’m onto the kids baking shows. They’re so cute πŸ™‚

Except there’s this 10 year old on one season that has a baking business. Like kid go outside and play or something stop making me look bad. At least I have my books!

I had a lovely holiday with my family but it always makes me sad when its over and everyone heads home and back to work. Back to the normal daily grind.

So happy thoughts!

goodreads wrap up

So I read 224 books last year! Which for me is a big aberration. But hey I was at like 178% on my Goodreads challenge which since I’m usually 60-70% on everything else in life I’m celebrating that!

most and least popular books

This is just in terms of number of reviews.

The Girl Who Took a Rocket to the Moon– is a book of short stories meant for children all about dealing with mental health and emotions. Which I think was very good and a great way to talk to your kids (even if the story about jealousy went right over my head.)

highest rated obsidio

This is the highest rated book I read on Goodreads which I’m sorry but that’s a little hard to fathom considering I also read Circe, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Anne of Green Gables, etc.

No I actually checked Obsidio is rated higher than Pride and Prejudice. Not much higher but okay. I suppose Goodreads is a rant for another day πŸ™‚

My average rating last year:

Which sounds about right since in my head 3 stars is average and you build or subtract from there.

I did set a 2019 Goal of 54 books. It’s maybe low for me but than I can feel good about myself if I get to raise it.

The excellent Sophie atΒ Portal in the PagesΒ on Youtube made a 2019 spreadsheet that’s so impressive to my chart loving no real clue how to use Excel heart I’m going to give it a try this year.

Now its time to pack the decorations and start returning things to normal while I think about what I want to do this year (and also try not to think about some of the things I have to!) I hope everyone has a wonderful year πŸ™‚
