Books read per month:

As you can see, my strongest reading month was in April where I’ve read a total of 7 books. I’m a slow reader, so reading 7 books in a single month is a big deal for me. My stats may not look like much compared to other readers who managed to read 100+ books this year, but I’ve completed my Goodreads reading challenge and exceeded with 13 books!

Book Formats:

If you know me well, you’d know that I don’t really read a lot of other book formats. I used to read e-books back in college, but it started to strain my eyes and I now have astigmatism, so I easily get a headache whenever I am reading from an e-reader. So my only option is always physical books, not that I’m complaining because I really do prefer them than other formats. It’s just that they are really expensive in my country! Haha 

This year, I tried listening to an audiobook of a specific book because I’ve been seeing a lot of great reviews about it. It’s also been recommended by my favorite booktubers, so I gave it a try. It was one of the greatest decisions I’ve made! Truly, enjoying an audiobook depends on how good the narrator is. 

I’ve already mentioned that I’ve read a lot of books in 2020 compared to the past couple of years, and not only have I read a huge amount of them, I’ve also read really great books content-wise and I am so happy about it. My top read for the year is The Poppy War (Poppy War, #1) by R.F. Kuang and my most hated book is Timeline by Michael Crichton which I DNF-ed at around page 60.

So there you have it, my 2020 reads and stats! What about you? What’s your most favorite read and least favorite read this year?
