2018 - Year in Books

Goodreads is my favorite place to track, group or list, and review books I've read and/or want to read. And I absolutely cherish the "Year in Books" list they provide users each year. It is so fun to look back at all the books I've read as I tidy up my to-read list for the new year. 

Here are some fun facts about my 2018 as told by books:

  • I read 8,895 pages across 40 books

  • Shortest book: 28 pages. (When You Wish Upon a Star by Ned Washington)

  • Longest book: 431 pages. (The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn)

  • Most popular: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J. K. Rowling (5,618,905 other people read)

  • Least popular: Led Zeppelin by Martin Popoff (2 other people read) (my review is here)

  • My average rating for 2018: 3.9 stars

  • Highest rated on Goodreads: Sewing Luna Lapin's Friends (4.73 stars) (my review is here)

  • My first review of the year: Crochet Kaleidoscope by Sandra Eng

  • My last review of the year: Sewing Shirts with a Perfect Fit by David Page Coffin 

My goal was to read 25 books in 2018. I surpassed my goal and read a total of 37 books last year! Here they are in chronological order (read on for which are my top recommendations):

  1. Other People's Houses by Abbi Waxman
