Quarterly Check-in


Oh my god I cannot believe that we are in July already. And what a weird start to the year we have all had. Since we have moved into July I thought give a little update my reading challenges and overall stats for the second 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.


Reading Challenges



Goal: 100

Around the World in 52 Books:

Goal: 39

I am thrilled with my progress of my reading challenges. I’m feeling pretty confident that I can finish all of these challenges this year. And if I do it means it will be the first time I finish the Around the World in 52 Books challenge.

To see the listed a prompts and which one’s I’ve crossed off head to my Reading Challenges page.



Star Ratings

Q2 Star Rating


My 2020 reading year is staying strong even if the amount has decreased. Most of the books that I’ve read are between 4 and 5 stars. 7 books I’ve given 5 stars, 6 have received 4.5 stars and 9 have received 4 stars. The lowest rating I gave this quarter is 3 which is still a pretty awesome in my book.

My average rating is 4.1 stars.

5 star reads

Here are my 5 star reads from April, May and June!



Genres Read

Q2 Genre


My romance fix is still going strong! 50% of the books I’ve read this quarter was romance. My second most read genre is paranormal, which really is the mix of romance and urban fantasy. I did pick up a few more fantasy books this quarter which I’m pretty happy about.

To break the genres down, I have read 16 romance books, 6 paranormal, 2 historical fiction and 7 fantasy.


Target Audience

Q2 Target Audience


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 would like so read more middle grade and YA during the rest of the year.

I read 3 Middle Grade, 5 Young Adult and 24 Adult.




Q2 Format


eBooks are still my top format (13 ebook and 3 digital ARC), which feels weird because I always say that I prefer to read physical books. I’m pretty happy that the amount of physical books were up this quarter (4 hardbacks and 12 paperbacks).

I would still  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 😂😂😂



Series or Standalone


Q2 Series v Standalone


I’m definitely more of a series reader. I’ve read 26 series books (14 first books and 12 sequels) compared to 6 standalones.

Apparently, I’m still horrible at reading and continuing series because I started 14 new series but only read 12 sequels. Next quarter I would love the number of sequels I read to be more then the number of first books I read. Also since I own a lot of sequels in on my shelves so hopefully it will go hand in hand with my goal to read my own books.




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
