I usually post a semiannual reading update at the end of June, but I'll post it a little early this year so I can talk about writing next week. I track all books I finish in all formats. My challenge this year is to read 150 books, which is about what I read last year. With 82 books under my belt, I'm well ahead of schedule. (I tend to lose ground during the summer, so it's good I'm ahead for now.) How do I read so much? I make time for it, and I replace other activities (like watching TV) with reading. Cozy mysteries, my favorite genre lately, can be short and fast-paced, so some of them only take two or three hours to read.
Here's the genre breakdown:
Science Fiction: 4
Cozy Mysteries: 48
Other Fiction: 5
Many of the mysteries I read have a paranormal element, but I count them as mystery instead of fantasy.
Here are a few of my favorites so far:
Meet Me in Another Life
The Dawn of Everything
A Spindle Splintered
The Forgotten Beasts of Eld (a reread)
The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics
What are your favorite books so far this year?
