End of the Year Survey 2017

Survey 2017

Hello fellow bookworms 🗓 I have seen this post over at Cait’s Blog last year and wanted to do it, because I looove stats so much and think it’s always an interesting way to recap the reading year! The feature was originally created by PerpetualPageTurner! I have left out quite a few questions, because the Survey is very long and I have answered a few in my Best of and Worst of 2017 Posts. Still, this turned out to be rather long, so grab a hot drink of your choice 😄

2017 Reading Stats 🗓

Number Of Books You Read: 107
Number of Re-Reads: 23 (wow that’s a lot)

Genre You Read The Most From

Unsurprisingly it’s mostly Fantasy, because it’s my favorite genre, but damn I thought that I had read more Historical Fiction this year 😮

Star Ratings

Wow that turned out to be more 5 Star Ratings then I thought. Let’s just say that I had a pretty good reading Year and have gotten really good at trying to determine which books I would possible enjoy 🙂

Year Published

Most books I read were still 2017 releases, but I also read so many backlist books, since they are mostly available at my local library. Surprisingly 15% of my books were published before 2010, which I had not realized up until now.

Where my books came from
Taken Digital Arcs and Library copies together (54%) I have read slightly more books that I didn’t own/pay for than those that are actually on my shelf. I thought it would be more library books though, because I spend sooo much time there every week.

Your Bookish Life 🗓

New favorite book blog you discovered in 2017?

  • Honestly I could never choose one, because I would end up forgetting me, so let’s just say that this is everyone who is following me or who I follow aka all the people who I love interacting with! So if you’re reading this, it’s definitely you as well 💕

Favorite review that you wrote in 2017?

🗓 Queens of Geek (Jen Wilde)

🗓 Passenger (Alexandra Bracken)

Best discussion/non-review post you had on your blog?

🗓 Possible Future Favorites

Best event that you participated in (author signings, festivals, virtual events, memes, etc.)?

  • Angie Thomas actually came to Germany!! I was so lucky to be able to go to the event, which was a reading with a following discussion AND signing. Angie is one of the nicest people I have met, it was absolutely amazing to talking to her 💕 This was also my first time ever meeting an author/going to a signing.
  • Frankfurt Book Fair – Germany’s biggest and most popular book fair. I only went on one day, where I was able to get Kerstin Gier and Jennifer L. Armentrout to sign my books. Both were very nice and it was totally worth waiting for. I also meet two fellow bookworms in the signing line.
  • All the amazing Readathons! This means the Sbooktacular Reading Adventure, The Reading Quest, The HolidayadventureAThon and Tome Topple. I had lots of fun with all of these, especially those who had fun challenges and team interactions.

Best moment of bookish/blogging life in 2017?

  • Starting my book blog here on WordPress. I had a book blog on Tumblr for over 1 1/2 years, because it was the only platform I knew at the time. The time gave me lots of blogging experience, but interaction with other bloggers was sparse. Therefore, I decided to gather my courage and work out WordPress. Best decision ever, as now I can interact with other bloggers, it’s amazing! 💕
  • Getting 50 Followers (you are amazing guys!) 💕

Most challenging thing about blogging or your reading life this year?

  • My third semester that recently started stressing me out so much, that I was not as relaxed about my reading as I usually was. Stress is the nemesis for my reading, as it sucks all the life out of me.
  • I feel like that’s it. There’s nothing else, which is probably a good sign.

Best bookish discover (book related sites, book stores, etc.)?

  • WordPress. Seriously, I was so glad when I managed to set up my book blog, because I am so much happier here than I was all isolated on Tumblr.

  1. More than 100 books is pretty impressive!! And so many of them are 5-star reads, too! That’s actually incredible, it looks like you had a great reading year. And I’m so excited to read Chainbreaker. I miss the cuties, Danny & Colton ❤
