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.


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:


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.
