#AMonthofFaves: This is How We Read

Today’s #AMonthOfFaves post is all about how we read!

Mon. | Dec. 4 – This Is How We Read #AMonthofFaves– eg. Number of books read so far, genre you read the most from, picture of favorite (or most often used) reading location, most read author, % eBooks, hardcovers, paperbacks and/or audiobooks, hint at what your favorite read of the year is (let us guess), types of books you wish you read more of, month you read the most and least)

Number of books read so far: At current time- my Goodreads says 63, but I don’t think I tracked in the beginning of 2017, but maybe I did! Actually since I finished this post, I know I didn’t account for some Harlan Coben books so I will give myself 70.

Genre I’ve read most: Romance- duh!  I used to read more general fiction, but the heart wants what the heart wants, sigh.

Reading location: I mainly read in my bed that I share with my husband and two kids, so if I can find my 2 inches that I have been allotted, then I will be content.  Otherwise, B built me a reading nook that I LOVE (see picture below) or the couch.


Most Read Author: This year has been Karina Halle- I recently found her and I believe it is about 22 of her books that I have read. HOWEVER, I did read a bunch of Harlen Coben books that are neither accounted for in my Goodreads log so he might be the real winner.  In the past, I have read a lot of Greg Isles, James Patterson, Mary Higgins Clarke (much younger days) and a few others.  I am pretty loyal when it comes to authors, so if I find one I like, I typically stick with them for a few months until I read all of them!

Paperbacks, E-books, Hardcover: If you would have asked me this 3 years ago, I would have sworn by paperbacks.  Now because of lovely technology I mainly read on my iPhone or Kindle.

Some hints at my fave books: Anything that has a “Southern” atmosphere- I adore books based on where I live {Louisiana} I am also a sucker for high school sweetheart stories, friends to lovers, and enemies to lovers.  I also enjoy a book that I cannot guess or predict what will happen.  When my mouth is left open, there is your sign.

Types of books I wish I read more of: Thrillers- but I really have to be in the mood for them.  I guess this year just hasn’t been my mood.

Month I’ve read the least: Probably last May- I have a huge deadline at work, and usually work until about 2 in the morning.  I tend to slack off around that time, but it’s usually the beach a week later so I get back in the game pretty quickly.
