The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
This was a bit of a mixed week. The weather has been gloomy for most of the week with lots of wind and rain and I am kinda done with all the rain and wind by now. I am struggling mood wise and I am having a bit of a winter dip. Nothing I do really seems to help, I struggle waking up with so little light, but I set my devices a bit brighter again and try to get enough light and vitamin D in. I also managed to hurt my shoulder and struggled with shoulder pain and a headache for most of the week.
I had a fun lunch with my boyfriend this week. We went to a nearby place for lunch, the place we wanted to go to was closed, so we found a new one. We had a good lunch and afterwards we walked around a bit and bought a few more things before returning home. I took the whole day off and it really helps to take an extra day off now and then, even though I often feel a bit guilty about doing so.
Work has been going well, after taking a day off I had extra energy and got a lot done during the rest of the week. I made good progress on some tasks for the authors I do assistant work for. I did some work on an upcoming tour and put a new sign up live for a middle grade book blitz.
2022 Reading stats
I finally got around to creating some stats of my reading in 2022. I made this graph for main genre that I read. Fantasy combines all paranormal and fantasy books.
I also looked up which sub genres I read most of and those were science fiction romance (17.5%), contemporary romance (15%), paranormal romance (15%), cozy mystery (11.9%) and urban fantasy (10.6%). Which kinda fits with what I thought I read most as those are my favorite genres.
Another interesting stat was that 76.3% of all books I read in 2022 featured adult characters.
And I made this graph for my ratings, that’s a lot of 4 stars. IThis year I am trying to give more 5 stars. It was interesting to see how many books I DNF’d 8.8%, I used to be so bad at DNF’ing and it sure comes easier now. I think this graph shows well that I usually pick books I enjoy, or I DNF them and then have some 3 stars and a few really good 5 stars.
