The 2014 Statistics Survey

I always love filling out Jamie's End of the Year Book Survey, so I was thrilled when I saw Brittany and Andi's Statistics Survey. What a fun way to highlight random bookish facts and details! I'll admit that I eliminated a few questions and added one or two of my own - a couple of these stats were a little challenging to look up. I think my favorite part of this survey is that I was able to highlight such a variety of books. I relied on Goodreads and my memory in answering these questions, so let's hope they're at least close to accurate...

  1. Did you actually read Someday My Prince Will Come? If not, I'd definitely recommend it. And funny enough, I actually lent my copy to a friend and never got it back. Although I did buy a second copy to replace it.

    1. No, I still haven't read it! But my friend said there's no rush to get it back to her, so I do plan to read it before returning :) I *think* it will be my non-fiction read for next month!

  2. 8 Books that made you cry Hannah!! That's amazing, I remember our conversation so long ago about how you don't cry when you read :) I think I had 18 that I could remember and I even said that was a surprise it was so low bahaha. Meeting 16 authors is fabulous... wow, what an awesome year 2014 was for you!

    You had so many posts and reviews in 2015, that's amazing. The Lynburn Legacy Series and Get Organized on Goodreads were two of my favorite posts from you aswell and obviously everyone else thought that as well :)

    I hope you have an amazing year in 2015 also <3

  3. It's seriously so fun to see your choices for this random survey! I spy with my little eye a lot of favorites on here ;) But I also spy a lot of titles that you've recommended or that I'm now interested (particularly adult ones) and I can't wait to take a chance on some of them <3
