2015 Statistic Survey – The Answers

heading

Here are my answers for the 2015 Statistic Survey hosted by myself and Brittany (The Book Addict’s Guide):

NumberOf

  • Number of books read…
    • Under 250 pages (not including novellas): 5
    • Between 400-449 pages: 15ish based on the Goodreads page count
    • Between 450-499 pages: 1
    • Over 500 pages: 6 (although one was a DNF so I guess 5)
    • Over 1000 pages: 0
  • Number of…
    • Audiobooks: 10
    • Re-reads: 11
    • DNFs (did not finish): 2
  • Number of books rated…
    • Five Stars: 20 (but some of these are 4.5 stars. Since Goodreads has failed us for another year with ½ stars I have to go with 20).
    • One/Two Stars:  No one stars as I DNF anything that will be that low. 8 2 star reads since I try to give them the benefit of the doubt too often.
  • Number of authors met in 2015: A lot. I went to (BEA 1 & 2) & I moderated a panel at the Boston Teen Author Fest with Sarah (What Sarah Read) and one for Tiffany Schmidt and AC Gaughen. But I think meeting Sarah Dessen, Amy Ewing and Heather Demitrios were high up there for me.
  • Number of book events attended in 2015: At least 4 I think.
  • Number of books you read in one day: I think one this year. I didn’t have a really good reading year.
  • Number of books that made you cry: 11 maybe. That is a guess though.
  • Number of 2016 books you have on pre-order: 7 although I have already read 3 of the 7.

BytheBooks

  • Book read furthest away from home (vacation reads?): Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen when I went to Austin and San Antonio.
  • Book that took you the longest to read: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. Thanks for that holidays.
  • Book that you personally connected with the most: I don’t know that I personally connected to any one book but Twenty Boy Summer (a reread) is such a human story it is hard not to connect to it.
  • Book that made you love the villain: None
  • Book you said you’d come back to but still haven’t picked up again: None
  • Book you read waaaay before it’s publication date: When We Collided by Emery Lord. I was asked to blurb the ARC so I read it about a year before its release.
  • Book you read on your birthday: Play On by Michelle Smith
  • Book with a character who shares your name: I can’t recall any of them having the name Andi or Andrea.
  • Book you weren’t entirely truthful about when rating (Fluff up any ratings? Rated even though you didn’t finish?): The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick. I love Huntley and I love Tim the main character but I didn’t love the book as much as I rated it. I just couldn’t bring myself to go lower than 4 stars for it.
  • Book you read in 2015 but already want to re-read: When We Collided.
  • Book you borrowed from a friend a long time ago and still have: Black Heart by Holly Black.
  • Book you which you could go back and read for the first time again: Anna and the French Kiss. Duh.
  • Most books read by one author this year: 7 all from Jay Crownover. I binged one of her series and read her spin off Built.

ThisThat

  • Happiest & saddest: Happiest  – Anna and the French Kiss; Saddest – The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand
  • Longest & shortest…
  • Best & worst…
  • First & last…
    • Reads of 2015: First – Anna and the French Kiss; Last – Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
    • Books on your bookcase (1st book on the top left and last book on the bottom right): First – Anna and the French Kiss; Last – Queen of Shawdows
  • Most disappointing & biggest pleasant surprise: Disappointing – Unleashed; Pleasant Surprise – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • Fandom you joined & one you abandoned: I can’t think of any
  • Series you picked up & series you quit: No clue.
  • Most lenient & harshest ratings: Lenient – The Boy Most Likely To; Harshest – Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between
  • Most hyped & furthest under the radar that you read: Hyped – Queen of Shadows and it was worth the hype; Under Radar – The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand (it was FANTASTIC!)

GrabBag

  • Book you read that is red: The Wrath the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
  • Starts with X, Y, or Z: The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen
  • Book you hugged when you finished it: Twenty boy Summer and Parallel by Lauren Miller. It had been a long time since I read both and I just love them.
  • Book you wanted to throw across a room: Unleashed
  • Food you craved while/after reading a certain book: Fries and Pizza reading Saint Anything.
  • Book that became an instant go-to recommendation:  The Deal by Elle Kennedy.
  • Furthest out of your comfort zone:  All the Harry Potter books
  • Read on a recommendation (that you may not have picked up yourself): What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler
  • Forced yourself to finish: Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between
  • Series or author’s works you binged (whether all at once or throughout the year): I binged Jay Crownover’s Marked Men series. SO SO GOOD!
