Chuckles Reading Stats 2017 Review




Here I'm taking a look back at my stats in pie chart form as it is nicer to look at than a pile of numbers! The graphics are so easy to construct here https://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/

  1. I'm going to have to check out that site and see if I can make one of these. I'm not surprised by your series chart - it seems harder and harder to find a good stand alone anymore. You rocked 2017!

    1. The charts are really easy to make-they must be if I can manage it in a few minutes! I love playing with these graphics! Most of my stand alone books were non fiction and some horror!

      I am REALLY going to rock 2018! Look out TBR I'm coming for you!!!

  2. I love these kinds of posts. I still need to make my graphs. I make a lot of them, and I decorate them, so they take forever to make. I’ve been procrastinating it.

    1. If I can find a list of DNFs for this year I might do a Read v DNF graph! I'm glad this graph maker is nice and simple or I'd never manage it!

  3. CHARTS!! charts get me excited! I LOVE CHARTS I think I already left a comment about how I ALMOST felt bad about male characters.. but and WOW look at that! Male writers must be very happy for you with all that support! :) I'm very impressed with the % of series!

    1. I love pie charts as they remind me of cakes...The male dominated part is because most of my zombies, apocalypse and horror books this year have been male authors and I DNFed a lot of female urban fantasy writers! I think the massive Rachel Caine series gave the female authors a big boost! This coming year I need to read more apocalypse, more female authors in my favourite genres and more stand alone!

    1. I love the end of the year to give me an excuse to mess around with graphics!

  5. I love how you did this! Now I want to try it for my reads. I bet we'd be very similar in genres and series or stand alones.

    1. It is fun! The worst bit was getting the numbers ready to put in the stupid graphs! I'm still planning a Read v DNF chart if I can do it...

  6. Very cool stats! And the standalone vs series chart is a real eye-opener. I guess a bulk of the books that come out these days are part of a series!

    1. It is quite shocking to see how few stand-alones I read. I want to improve that next year if possible. I have a good pile of horror already waiting for me...

  7. I love posts like this one. I just love to see all the states broken down like this. It looks like you have had a great reading year!

    1. It was a decent year until I got to October and the Land of Slump! I missed out on reading about 50 books I think!
