My Year in Reading – 2014

Firstly if you want to know what my favourite reads of the year were they are all listed here…

The last couple of years I have looked back at my year of reading and specifically looked at the gender balance. This year I decided to track my reading not just on gender but also format, genre and nationality. I did so using a spreadsheet which means *drumroll* charts!


I read 75 books in 2014, 5 more than last year. In 2013 25% of my reading was by female authors, this dropped to 22%. Goodreads released an interesting infographic based on their data about the gender balance among female and male readers.
