Since we are already into April, I thought give a little update my reading challenges and overall stats for the first quarter of the year.

Also there are pie charts! Yay for charts!

These stats look at all the books I’ve read so far in 2020, with a little disclaimer that not all the books have been released in 2020.

Star Ratings

Q1 Star Rating 20


My 2020 reading year as started of strong. Most of the books that I’ve read are between 4 and 5 stars. 7 books I’ve given 5 stars, 9 have received 4.5 stars and 10 have received 4 stars. My lowest rated books for this quarter was Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon. I gave both books 2.5 stars.

My average rating is 4 stars.

5 star reads

Here are my 5 star reads from January, February and March!




Genres Read

Q1 Genres 20


I’m still on my romance fix so my most read genre is Romance. My second most read genre is paranormal, which really is the mix of romance and urban fantasy. I’m really surprised that fantasy is a low as it is since it’s one of my favourite genres.

To break the genres down, I have read 20 romance books, 6 paranormal, 4 historical fiction, 2 fantasy,  1 classic, 1 contemporary, 1 poetry and 1nonfiction.


Target Audience

Q1 Target Audience 20


Most of the books I’m reading are for an Adult audience which make sense since most of the book I did read where romance. I am happy to see that number of middle grade books I’ve read has increased on my average.

I read 3 Middle Grade, 2 Young Adult and 32 Adult.




Q1 Format 20


eBooks are still my top format ( 20 ebook and 6 digital ARC), which feels weird because I always say that I prefer to read physical books. Next quarter, I would love to prioritise reading more of the books I have on my shelves. The number of unread books on my shelve is causes me stress 😂😂😂

For the physical books,  I read 2 hardbacks and 9 paperbacks.


Series or Standalone

Q1 Series or Standalone 20


I’m definitely more of a series reader. I’ve read 28 series books (15 first books and 13 sequels) compared to 10 standalones.

Going into the next quarter I would like to the number of sequels I read be more than the number of first books I’m reading. Because I want to finish series so I’m not in the middle of 100000s of series 😂😂😂



That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me know how you’re reading challenges are going so far and what books have been your favourite so far

Until next time, happy reading!
