This year I read...

214 books!

118 of those books, I labeled as YA.

67 were Children's Lit and 72 were Middle Grade, with a majority being double-tagged.

107 fantasy titles were read, and 56 realistic fiction. 103 were contemporary fiction, which included modern-feeling paranormal titles. Only 22 mystery novels, a drastic decline. 13 science fiction, and an all-time low of 2 non-fiction. Yeesh.

How did your reading stack up this year? Did you hit your goal in numbers? Any surprise genre-wise? I'm totally looking to up my mystery and non-fiction reading for 2012. The YA number will probably stay high, I'll just have to look into our YA non-fiction!
