So at the end of last year's BEA I had quite a few books! I still have quite a few to read, but let's look at my STATS.
Total Books: 25
Previously Read: 3
Books Left: 5
Favorite Book: TOUCH OF POWER by Maria V. Snyder, not terribly surprising since I love her books, but this departure from her previous fantasy world (starring Yelena and later Opal) hit its stride much earlier than the "Study" books did.
Least Favorite: RIFT by Andrea Cremer or VENOM by Fiona Paul, I expected quite a bit from Paul's book, but it ultimately let me down in execution. Cremer I was giving a second chance since this was a prequel to the series I had issues with, but it too left me oddly dissatisfied.
Total Books: 27
Previously Read: 5
Books Left: 4
Favorite Book: THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas or REDSHIRTS by John Scalzi, both books were favorites of last year period.
Least Favorite: THE CURSED by Jennifer L. Armentrout, which saddened me a lot because I loved her Luxe series SO MUCH. I just could not like the main character. Or her sister. Or the love interest.
Total Books: 16
Previously Read: 0
Books Left: 5
Favorite Book: PRINCESS ELIZABETH'S SPY by Susan Elia MacNeal, this was a surprise entry to the list that was brought on by Nicole's campaigning for me to try it out!
Least Favorite: THE POISON PRINCESS by Kresley Cole, less surprising since I'm not a fan of her non-YA books either.
So I didn't do that badly! I've read almost half of the books, which is a better than in years past! I plan on reading a couple more during the Readathon.
How did everyone else fare from last year?
