2017 Year-End Statistics Survey



Hi Book Bloggians! Today I am doing another survey! This one is hosted by Andi's ABCs and The Book Addict's Guide. 😊 Again, I am not going to answer all of the questions, but I hope you enjoy!
  • Under 250 pages (not including novellas): 4
  • Between 400-449 pages: 4
  • Between 450-499 pages: 1 1/2
  • Over 500 pages: 4
  • Over 1000 pages: 0
Number of…
  • Audiobooks: 2
  • DNFs (did not finish): 1
Number of books rated…  
  • Five Stars: 3
  • One/Two Stars: 5
  • Number of authors met in 2017: 0
  • Number of book events attended in 2017: 0
  • Number of books you read in one day: 0
  • Number of books that made you cry: 2
  • Number of 2017 books you have on pre-order: 0, but as soon as I get a job I want to reward myself by ordering A Thousand Perfect Notes by CG Drews. (aka Cait @ Paper Fury! πŸ˜„
  • Book read furthest away from home (vacation reads?): 
 The Mother-Daughter Book Club (The Mother-Daughter Book Club, #1)Let it Snow

Well the farthest away I went on vacation this year was only like a four hour drive away for Thanksgiving, and I read part of these two on that weekend but I was mostly busy with other stuff since it was the holidays.
  • Book that took you the longest to read:
Jane Eyre

Ugh, Jane Eyre. It took me like three months, but I wasn't reading it every day. I started it in September but I didn't finish it until December, but to be fair I also had Nanowrimo in November. It was such a struggle to get through, but I stuck it out because I wanted to challenge myself.
  • Book that you personally connected with the most:

Uprising

Uprising. I have been talking about this soooo much lately so I will try not to repeat myself too much but this historical fiction was the first book that actually made me cry real tears during it and I love Jane's character development and it's all about feminism and empowerment and rights and just UGH YOU NEED TO READ IT!
  • Book you weren’t entirely truthful about when rating (Fluff up any ratings? Rated even though you didn’t finish?):

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)
 I don't know, I gave Red Queen five stars, but for some reason I feel like that might be too high? But I'm not even sure WHY I would want to bring it down. Like there's really no reason I can think of why I don't think it deserves it. And four stars seems too low, and I could go for half stars but 4.5 doesn't really feel right either? UGH I'm so torn!
  • Book you read in 2017 but already want to re-read:
Firefight (The Reckoners, #2)Millie's Reluctant Sacrifice (A Life of Faith: Millie Keith #7)All the Light We Cannot SeeThe Mother-Daughter Book Club (The Mother-Daughter Book Club, #1)

I like never reread books, but last year I started keeping a list of books/series I would want to reread someday, and these ones made the list. (for all of them except for All the Light We Cannot See because it's a standalone, I want to reread the entire series of them)
  • Book you which you could go back and read for the first time again:
 Firefight (The Reckoners, #2)

Not this particular book, but the first book in it's series, Steelheart. It's one of my favorite books and I read it for a competitive book club type thing for my high school and I loved it and I just have a lot of great memories reading it.
  • Most books read by one author this year:
Redeemed and Uprising by Margaret Peterson Haddix, and Safe House and Sanctuary by Meg Cabot. (2 by each)
  • Happiest & saddest:
Happiest: 

Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King, #1)

 Alosa's sass just made me laugh so much. I LOVE her!
 
Saddest:

Uprising
The ending to this book made me cry so much! 😒

Longest & shortest…
  • By page number: 
According to Goodreads the shortest is Millie's Reluctant Sacrifice by Martha Finley at 201 pages, and the longest is Disney in Shadow by Ridley Pearson at 576 pages.
  • By title: 
Longest:

Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend (Broken Hearts & Revenge, #1)
Shortest: 
Talon (Talon, #1)
I have multiple one-word ones, so I just picked a random one.
  • From buying to reading: 
Shortest:

Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King, #1)
I swear this is the very first book in my entire life that I've actually read within the year it came out. And even then I barely made it. It was published in June and I read it in December. πŸ˜‚ 
Longest:

Ask Me
I honestly have no idea. So this is my best guess. It came out in 2014 so maybe I got it around the time it was published? I really don't remember. But I think I got a majority of the books I have that I haven't read yet in 2014. Oops. πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚

  • Average rating on Goodreads: 3.4 stars

First & last…
  • Reads of 2017:
First:

Lost in London
I was finishing it from 2016. πŸ˜‚ 
Last:
 Atlantia

  • Most disappointing & biggest pleasant surprise:
Disappointing: 

 Ruby Red (Precious Stone Trilogy, #1)
This was sadly so boring to me. For a time travel book, there was zero action, and everyone just stood around talking the whole time and never actually did anything. 
Pleasant Surprise:

Uprising
 I can't stop talking about this book! The cover makes it not look like much, but trust me, this book is heartbreakingly amazing!
  • Fandom you joined & one you abandoned:
I kinda feel like I "abandoned" Divergent, because I was just so ready to be done with the series by the time I finally got around to finishing Allegiant this year, but I still enjoy faction inspired merch so...πŸ˜‚
And I think I definitely joined the Red Queen and Snow Like Ashes fandoms! πŸ˜„
  • Most hyped & furthest under the radar that you read:
 According to Goodreads, the least popular book I read was Millie's Reluctant Sacrifice by Martha Finley, and my most popular one was Jane Eyre by Charlotte BrontΓ«. But if we're just talking YA, I would guess my most hyped one was probably Red Queen, and the least I think were probably Safe House and Sanctuary by Meg Cabot.
  • Book you read that is red:
 Talon (Talon, #1)
  • Starts with X, Y, or Z:
 Waterfall (Teardrop, #2)
The closest I could get was W.
  • Book you wanted to throw across a room:
  Jane Eyre
I'd be lying if I said anything else, but I tried so heard to enjoy this book. I really did. But WHAT KIND OF PROPOSAL WAS THAT?! πŸ˜‘
  • Book that became an instant go-to recommendation: 
 UprisingAll the Light We Cannot See 
This was just the year of historical fiction for me I guess. πŸ˜‚
