A Month of Favorites ~ Sign Up

A Month of Favorites is hosted by Girlxoxo, Traveling with T & Estella's Revenge.

I'm late coming into the party but I just happened to see this blog event today. I'm definitely up for sharing my favorites, so though I'm late, I thought I'd join in. To join in, click the graphic above or visit one of the blogs who are hosting it.

Day 1

Favorites Introduction

About YOU and Your Reading this year (eg. fave genre, fave author, how you read (percentage (%) physical, eReader, audiobooks), when you read, what genre did you read the most from this year, which author was most prolific on your reading list, how many books did you read, give us a clue about what your fave book read this year is – but don’t tell us – let us guess!)

Hey all!! Karsyn here, and my Reading year has been great. As of writing this, I've read 288 books this year, it's been the most that I have read, since I have started keeping track, and I definitely look forward to getting past 300 before the end of the year. :)

I don't have a favorite genre anymore. I'm still partial to suspense, but I've gotten to the point where I don't really pay attention to genres. If it sounds good to me, I read it, no matter the genre. I did lose a favorite author this year. I have said, for the past 3 years, that my favorite author was Maya Banks, but recently I got tired of her books and the last I read finally turned me off of her completely. I plan to only continue to read her KGI series, but other than that, won't read her other stuff. I enjoy a variety of authors, especially Chris Carter, Matthew Reilly, Robyn Carr, Christy Reece, Cherise Sinclair.... and many many more.

I was able to finally get a Kindle back in 2011, and since then, I don't think I've read a "real" book, if I have, it's been less than 10. I LOVE my Kindle, starting with my Kindle Keyboard and now I adore my Kindle Fire, which I got an older version for a VERY VERY great deal last year. Last year, I also found a LOVE for audiobooks. I hadn't read any prior to a year or so, but found that I absolutely love them, and I am always reading a book and listening to an audiobook. If I had to give percentages to what I read, I'd say that it's probably 80% on my Kindle and 20% audiobooks.

I read every day and sometimes all day. I'm blessed to be able to stay home and do what I enjoy, which means reading, playing video games or writing letters to my long letter (15+ typed pages) pen pals. :) I love doing day and week long read-a-thons to get through my ever growing TBR list.

My favorite book for the year was a book that made me realize I no longer cared about genres, as it was a genre I don't normally like. Funnily enough, my two favorite books are from that genre, so weird that! It wasn't a book that I thought I would like and it caught my attention. I ended up loving it, and so did my hubby, it's definitely a book that makes you think! It's a great book, for book lovers. :)

    I'm the same way. I have genres I naturally gravitate toward, but a lot of my favorite books have been from a variety of genres and don't sound like they would go together at all.
