2022 Reading Stats

I love stats, so I’m sharing a few of my 2022 reading stats. I track specific stats on a spreadsheet, and others I get from Goodreads and Storygraph. This is just a very small portion of what I like to track. 😊

 Shortest and Longest Book

Average book length in 2022

390 pages

My average rating for 2022

3.9 ⭐

Genres Read 2022

I want to track the graphic novels I read, so that’s why GN appears here as a genre. It’s weird, I know. But it works for me. 🤷

In 2021, Romance was my most read genre (60 books) and fantasy was in second place (42 books). It’s interesting that in 2022 Fantasy took first place with 49 books, more than I read of the genre in 2021 (42), and Romance came second (39 books) which was way, way less than in 2021 (60). I was definitely in a Fantasy mood! I also read less books in 2022 (120) vs 2021 (155), so that’s worth noting.

2022 Reading Mood Storygraph

The Storygraph moods chart is fun to look at. Apparently, my top 3 were adventurous, dark, and mysterious.

Most Read Authors 2022

2022 was clearly the year I fell in love with V. E. Schwab’s writing.
