This year I have decided to keep a closer tap on the stats of what I am reading. Who is writing it, who are the protagonists, what genres am I reading etc. I will keep this post up to date and put a link in the menu. In the start of the year it probably isn’t very interesting but I hope it will be interesting (at least for me) to see how t develops over the year. Comics are only included on the author list and on the graph with type of work, because I simply read too many. Perhaps I will do a separate post on the comics.
What did I read
Type of work
What genre was the novels, if I only had to pick one per book
When was the work published?
Includes both novels and short stories
Novel authors I have read before: Carrie Vaughn, Charles Stross, Terry Pratchett, Tanya Huff, Ramez Naam, Kim Harrison, Seanan McGuire, Laurell K. Hamilton, Ilona Andrews, Mary Robinette Kowal, Faith Hunter, Diana Rowland, Jim Butcher, Lisa Shearin, Ann Leckie, Gail Carriger, Jacqueline Carey, Tansy Rayner Roberts, Ben Aaronovitch
That means that this year I have read 9 new authors and 19 authors’ work that I have read before. So I have take a chance on almost 1/3 of the novels this year.
The author stats are only on the novel and short fiction writers, not the comic ones (there are simply too many I keep forgetting to track them) and I decided not to list short story authors here or in the stats. You can see the short story stats here. I have included single author collections in the stats here as well as in the short story stats.
I am only doing statistics on the novel protagonists so far.
