2018 Year-End Statistics Survey

 

Hey guys! Here is my other (very late 😂) 2018 survey! This one is hosted by Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide, and covers all of our bookish stats, so let's go cuz I'm excited! 😄
P.S. I skipped some questions cuz this is so long.
Number of books read: (All of the groups except the last two were supposed to go by the 50s, but I went by the 100s cuz that made it easier for me to track it in my planner.)
  • Under 200 pages (not including novellas): 2
  • Over 200 pages: 11
  • Over 300 pages: 27
  • Over 400 pages: 8
  • Over 500 pages: 1
  • Over 1000 pages: 0
Number of…
  • Audiobooks: 2
  • Re-reads: 0
  • DNFs (did not finish): 2
Number of books rated:
  • Five Stars: 6
  • One/Two Stars: 4
  • Number of authors met in 2018: 0
  • Number of book events attended in 2018: 0. I just don't have opportunities like this where I live. 😩
  • Number of books you read in one day:  1
  • Number of books that made you cry: 1 (and a few others that came pretty close)
  • Number of 2019 books you have on pre-order: 0, but there are at least 3 that I have my eye on that I might pre-order soon.

  • Book read furthest away from home (vacation reads): 
 Strong Is the New Pretty: A Celebration of Girls Being Themselves
This isn't a novel, but if you count this, I read it on our little road trip to Homer this summer.

  • Book that took you the longest to read: 
I picked this up on August 13 at like 1am, read two chapters, realized my brain wasn't awake enough to jump into the complex world building, so I put it down, fell asleep...and didn't touch it again until October. 😳 Then I finally finished it on November 17. So yeah, it took me waaaaay too long. 😂
  • Book that you personally connected with the most: 
 The Neverland Wars (The Neverland Wars, #1)
Hmm, this was a hard one. But I'll go with The Neverland Wars because the main character Gwen had some of the exact same thought processes I do, which was pretty amazing because that was the first time I've ever read a character I feel like I connected that closely to.
  • Book that made you love the villain: 
 Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1) The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire, #1)
Ugh, I really don't ever love villains, but Irina from The Shadow Queen and Grandma Hart (I forgot her first name and I can't find it anywhere 😩) from Pawn were very interesting characters.

  • Book you said you’d come back to but still haven’t picked up again: 
 Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)
I don't think there is any books I've done that with. The closest one is Six of Crows which I put down for a month and a half before I picked it up again.
  • Book you read waaaay before it’s publication date:
I haven't ever read any ARCs so...
  • Book you read on your birthday: 
Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch
I didn't read anything on my birthday, but the day before I was trying to catch up on Frost Like Night.
  • Book with a character who shares your name: 
 Panic (Panic, #1)
The only book I know of that has a character with my name is this one, but I don't really have any interest in reading it.
  • Book you weren’t entirely truthful about when rating (Fluff up any ratings? Rated even though you didn’t finish?):
Blackthorn WinterA Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1)Two Lies and a Spy (Two Lies and a Spy, #1)To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)
I feel like I rated these a star too high. I originally had Blackthorn Winter and A Thousand Pieces of You at 5 stars, Two Lies and a Spy at 4, and TATBILB at 3.
  • Book you read in 2018 but already want to re-read:
 Much Ado About Anne (The Mother-Daughter Book Club, #2)
Not this book, but the rest of the series (except for the last one) which I've already read I want to reread this year before hopefully getting to the finale. 😊
  • Book you borrowed from a friend a long time ago and still have: 
 The True Meaning of Smekday
Uh I don't think I've ever borrowed a book and not given it back. But one of my friends borrowed this book and had it so long that I forgot I even gave it to her! Don't worry, she finally gave it back last year. 😂
  • Book you wish you could go back and read for the first time again: 
Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)
Maybe I would've liked this a little more like everybody else if I hadn't tried to force myself to read it while I was slumping. 😕
  • Most books read by one author this year:
I read 3 by Kellyn Roth, and 3 by Jennifer Donnelly. 

  • Happiest and Saddest:
Happiest:

Geekerella
Saddest:

 Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes, #3)

This may not be the saddest book, but there was a character's death in here that really made me cry. 😭

  • Longest and Shortest:
  • By page number:
 
  • By title:
Shortest:
Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1)
Longest: 

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)
  • From buying to reading: (I have no way to track this so I'm totally just guessing here. 😂)
Shortest:

Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes, #3) 

I know this must be the shortest because I bought it in November because I decided I wanted to read it around Christmastime because of the title. 

Longest: 

Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1) 

I know I've had this for at least a few years. 😂
  • Best and Worst:
  • Books you read/your rating:
Best: 5 stars
 Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes, #3)
Worst: 1 star

The Sound
  • Series enders:
Best:
 Frost Like Night (Snow Like Ashes, #3)
Worst:

Salt & Stone (Fire & Flood, #2) 
It's only the worst cuz it ended on a cliffhanger and there's not another book! It wasn't even supposed to be the finale! 😩
  • First and Last:
  • Reads of 2018:
First:
 The Dressmaker's Secret (The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy, #1)
Last:
Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1)
Technically it's this one since I had to finish Frost Like Night in January.
  • Most disappointing and biggest surprise:
 Calamity (The Reckoners, #3)
As a series finale this was sadly kind of dissappointing cuz it was a series I really loved but the ending was rushed and sloppy. 😔
To Kill a Kingdom

Luckily I was pleasantly surprised at how much I ended up liking this!
  • Most hyped and furthest under the radar that you read:
 

  • Book you read that is red: 
A Thousand Perfect Notes
  • Starts with X, Y, or Z: 
Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die, #3)
  • Book that became an instant go-to recommendation: 
The Shadow Queen (Ravenspire, #1)
  • Forced yourself to finish: 
Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)
  • Series or author’s works you binged (whether all at once or throughout the year):
 Fire & Flood (Fire & Flood, #1)Salt & Stone (Fire & Flood, #2)
Well I tried (unsuccessfully) to binge both of these in one day. 😂

  1. I’m scared of the hype around Six of Crows. I read one of the author’s other books and felt meh about it, so I’m nervous. I’ll probably end up reading it someday.

      Yeah, I liked it enough to read the next book, but I'm just not in LOVE with it like everyone else seems to be. And I got it as a Christmas present a couple years ago so Idk if I actually would've gotten around to reading it if I hadn't. :/
