Statistics Survey!

Hi everyone!

I absolutely love looking at everyone’s statistics and although I hate doing it for actual mathematics reasons, I love looking at my own stats too! So when I found this on Literary Me, I couldn’t help but do it! This is hosted by  Andi’s ABCs & Book Addict’s Guide so make sure to give all three blogs some love!

Let’s get on with some good ol’ stats!

      1. I use Goodreads as well. I had an excel sheet last year but I didn’t keep up with it. Hopefully this year I’ll be able to stick to it.
