Happy New Year! The End of Year Book Survey, created by Jamie of The Perpetual Page Turner, has been an annual tradition here ever since I started blogging back in 2017. I can’t believe that February 2021 will officially mark four years of Fangirl Fury!
I was originally going to have this final 2020 wrap-up posted yesterday, but I thought this favorite reading survey of mine would be a fun day to kick off the new year. I also finally took a note from my past blogger self and decided to complete this survey once my year of reading had officially ended, since I typically post my end of year survey a week or two before New Year…and end up having to go back to add to my reading total or adapt some responses.
2020 Reading Stats
Number of Books You Read: 133
Number of Re-Reads: 7
Genre Your Read The Most From: YA
One of the reasons I also pushed this post until New Year’s Day vs. New Year’s Eve is because I finally put all of my 2020 reads into a Google Sheet to calculate how much YA vs. contemporary romance vs. other genres I actually read this year. I know I’ve said in so many posts that I couldn’t tell if I had read more YA or contemporary romance in 2020, but YA was the ultimate winner, having read 48 YA books and 38 contemporary romances (this number doesn’t include any adult contemporaries or adult fiction books I read.
I’m here to admit that while I try not to repeat answers, there are at least 4-5 books within my responses that you’ll notice a few times. I do try to diversify my answers, but I want to be as honest as I can and reflect on the books I loved most & stand out the most in my memory.
