My annual review of the books I read in the previous year always turns up at least a couple of surprises for me. Here is the breakdown:
Total # of books read: 39
34 Fiction 5 Non-fiction
2 Young Adult 2 Childrens
22 by female authors and 17 by male authors
6 Mystery, 4 Science Fiction, 2 Romance, 5 Historical Fiction
6 by Asian American authors, 5 by African Americans, 7 by Latino Americans
I’m surprised by how many books on this list are by male authors, but I’m glad to see I’ve broadened my scope. I’m also surprised that I still read some genre fiction. I read many more mysteries and romances when I was younger, but lost some interest in those “formula” books over the years. Though I’ve never had an interest in science fiction, I have started reading more of it after viewing a DVD course on this genre last year. It’s a genre I plan to explore further in 2019. Happy Reading in 2019!
