My Year in Books – 2018

I was inspired by the “My Year in Books” page on Goodreads last year and decided to share my year with you guys again. (And maybe you will choose to do the same!)

My Average Rating for 2018

4.1 Stars

I know I tend to rate things a 4/5, so I’m not surprised. I’m trying to be a little more critical of books that I don’t love, but still feel guilty rating any books as a 3. I’ve gotten better though, I think!

  1. Wow, this so cool, to see everything you’ve read and reviewed broken down! How was the Spider Gwen graphic novel? I kind of chuckled when it was like, 0 people also read The Wish. Yep, definitely no one in common for that book. I’m guessing it’s a backlogged book.

    And SO MANY PEOPLE read Ready Player One! Some how I thought KoA would have been most read. Huh.

    1. I wanted to love Spider Gwen but it just wasn’t great… I read the first three of them, so I really tried and the storyline was just not there.

      Yeah, literally the author reached out to me and I had to add it to Goodreads to review it. But it was pretty problematic for me and I think she may have decided not to publish it at the end of it all. Thus… just me?

      I think Ready Player One crushed it because it’s been out so much longer than KoA. Trust me, KoA’s numbers will grow over time.

      1. Ah, that sucks. I had hopes. Sometimes the plot just doesn’t work out.

        Whoa, did not expect such a story behind The Wish. That is weirdness. If it was problematic, better that it wasn’t published at least.

        That makes sense. I do see a huge rise for KOA with time.
