2014 reading statistics

When I uploaded my reading statistics for 2013 last year, I honestly didn’t think I would be doing the same thing for 2014 a year later. The reason behind that, I suspect, is because I didn’t expect myself to keep blogging. But I did, and now here we are.

In 2014, I read a total of 124 books**, of which:

  • 43 were re-reads*
  • 5 were non-fiction
  • 6 were classics
  • 13 were by new authors
  • 116 were by female authors (2 were jointly written)
  • 8 were ebooks
  • 8 were novellas / short stories / extras
  • 3 were in Korean
  • 17 had (predominantly) male MCs
  • 2 had LGBTQQIA+ main character***
  • 3 had LGBTQQIA+ side characters***
  • 10 had POC main characters (heritage)***
  • 19 were written by non-American authors (nationality)

* This is the last year I will make a distinction between new reads and re-reads.
** Unlike last year, I counted the books in a bind-up edition separately.
*** Wow, my reading really lacked in diversity this year :/
