End of Year Review: 2020

Hello there! It’s my first end of year review. It’s been a wild ride since I started Toastie Books back in August and I’ve really enjoyed joining such a great book blogging community. So, be prepared for some Goodreads and WordPress stats for 2020.

Goodreads

Shortest Book: The Pale Dreamer by Samantha Shannon (90 pages)

Longest Book: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas (803 pages)

Average Book Length: 391 pages

Total Pages Read: 104, 923

Total Books Read:

268

I read more books than I ever have in a year in 2020, and probably ever will again given the unusual circumstances. The most popular book I read was Twilight by Stephanie Meyer (haha), and the least was Making Relationships Work at Work by Richard Fox.

Average Rating: 4.2 Stars

Average rating is up from 4.1 Stars last year (the first year I tracked every book I read on Goodreads). I think this is pretty good! It means I read a lot of great books this year.

Honestly I can’t even begin to describe how insane this is for me. When I started this blog in August I had no idea I’d have 391 followers at the end of the year. That’s like 3 times as many as I have on Twitter – wild.

  1. Happy New Year! tbh I had NO IDEA that you started your blog this year; I thought you had been blogging for a long time, since you seemed so experienced and chill! Of the posts you’ve made in 2020, which one are you the most proud of? Do you think you’ve learned anything new about yourself through blogging?

    1. Yep it was in August!! Thanks haha, I have been writing goodreads reviews for a while and me and my friends blog together. I think the post I’m most proud of is https://toastiebooks.wordpress.com/2020/08/20/adventures-in-aesthetics/ because my friends created the idea and it was super fun to do. But I am also happy that The Burning God review got the most views because it was an ARC! Not sure I learned anything about myself through blogging, I guess not to worry too much about writing as long as I’m passionate!

      Thank you for the comment!!
