An end-of-year post from Brandy at Random Musings of a Bibliophile reminds me that I need to look back over the year’s reading, too. I’ll be curious to see how many books I actually read this year. I know it’s way under the number I’d have read if I hadn’t been pouring so much of my time into writing.
By this time of year I have no real idea what books I read back in January and February. And March and April, honestly, who can keep track? That’s why I write them down.
I’m curious, do any of you also keep track of what you read over the course of the year? I’ve only been doing that for a few years, but it really is interesting to look back and just see what I read and in what genres and how the list compares to previous years.
Update: here’s a “readers’s choice” for best books of 2015 from tor.com. Of the entire list, I have Sorcerer to the Crown already on my TBR pile; other than that, I think the ones I’m most interested in myself are Karen Memory. I recently read a review of Red Rising that makes me want to try that one, too, and then Golden Son is the sequel.
The one I’m least interested in off the tor.com list is obviously Half the World by Joe Abercrombe. After four of his books, I’m quite sure that I’m not the intended reader for his work.
