Quarterly Wrap Up: October-December 2021

Hello everybody! I’m aware my posting schedule is a bit haywire at the moment, but it’s just because I’m trying to squeeze in end of year content with other things I’m planning for January. Onto the post!

Number of books I read … overall: 70

Number of books I read… in October: 25

Number of books I read… in November: 20

Number of books I read… in December: 25


Average number of pages read (according to Goodreads at time of writing): 300 pages (this is up from last time, which I wasn’t expecting but it’s a nice surprise!!)

Longest book: I’m almost certain it was a Single Thread of Moonlight! I think it was like 500 pages? I loved it so much.

Shortest book: I’m pretty sure it was Blossom by Laura Dockrill, which is a lovely little novella from Barrington Stoke.


MG: 46

YA: 12

Adult: 12


Most-read genre: oddly, as I wasn’t expecting this, I think it might be contemporary! I suppose this is probably because I did an adult/YA review post and one focused solely on MG contemporary as well. As I always say though, I don’t work this out with any scientific method so really it could be anything 😂

Average star rating: 4.2 stars


DNFs: 1

2 stars: 1

3 stars: 1

4 stars: 54

5 stars: 13

Authors I had read from previously vs authors I hadn’t read from before?

42 vs 27 (I feel like this number may not be quite right but I have recounted so many times and still come up with the same ones, so I feel like it may be because I read about 4 books by the one author this quarter and only counted her once? I’ve also fallen quite a lot in the past few days and I’m not feeling great, so my brain is too fuzzy to keep doing maths past this point. So, basically, please forgive me if it seems off!)


Thank you so much for reading! Do you find these posts interesting? Is there anything you think I should add to them going forward in 2022? I’d love to hear in the comments!

  1. Sorry to hear you’ve had those falls. Great stats. It’s always fun to read these figures. I’m too disorganised with books to do that, which is strange as I am a list oriented person.
    Interesting that only one book was at the 500 page mark. A genre thing maybe?

    1. I did have a few that were just under 500 too, but a Single Thread of Moonlight was a lovely, chunky historical romance. I managed not to have a fall (well, at least not a bad one) all day yesterday which was good, although I did have a vestibular migraine at night instead 😭
