Big themes: If I make a couple combinations, I get 32 urban fantasy and 26 historical romance. Unsurprising on the urban fantasy front, since it's been "my" genre for a while. The historical romance? I only got into them in the summer. They. Are. Addictive.
What's Missing? I browsed through more than 2 crafty books, but I wasn't counting them unless I read them cover-to-cover. This is also true with some travel books (like guidebooks). Though I do sometimes read guidebooks cover-to-cover. . .
Predictions for 2011:
- Similar numbers for urban fantasy, historical romance, foodie, crafty, and travel.
- More apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic - I'm on the hunt for some more on the end of the world.
- More mysteries, since I have a list of cozies I want to try (even though murders give me nightmares)
- More non-fiction in general, particularly books on language, writing and international issues.
- A possible dive back into historical fiction and traditional fantasy, particularly fairy tales. I had been burned out on these genres in the past, but it might be time to get back to them.
* Not incuding February and March, when I was apparently too busy to write down what I read. Who knows what I might have been reading then!
