    Gosh those figures are all really high! It’s interesting to see that you’ve read far more novels by female authors than male – I’m exactly the same. And yet there’s an equal number on bookshop shelves I think. :-)

    Wow, you really read a lot this year! I had just over 50 reviews and won’t even get close to your numbers. Congrats, you have a great blog!

    Happy new year, Shelleyrae!

    You read twice as much as me, but I had twice as many DNFs – look like you’re better at choosing books. :-)

    You did very well on your challenges. I unfortunately didn’t get further than 6/12 for the Eclectic Reader challenge, but at least, that’s 6 fewer books on my TBR. For the coming year I’m going to do just one challenge, a Dutch one. No more. :-)
