The Best and Worst of December

Yes, I know it’s only December 31.  However I don’t think my stats will change all that much in the next 24 hours.  Since it’s December and the holiday season for most people out there, monthly traffic is down from 5, 346 in November to 4, 222 views.  According to WordPress’s new unique visitors feature 2, 255 different people have visited this month.  So what did all these people view?  It may surprise you!

1.  The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

2.  The Hunger Games and Ancient Rome

3.  The Giver by Lois Lowry

4.  Matilda by Roald Dahl

5.  My Favourite Books of 2012

Yes, for the first time in two months we actually have a new top 5 post!  My Favourite Books of 2012 did surprisingly well, gathering 93 views since December 10.  My post The Mad Reviewer Reading Challenge came in a close sixth, however.  And now for the worst posts of December:

1.  Introducing my New Guest Poster: Caleb Flanagan of 20four12

2.  Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

3.  Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

4.  Just Thought You’d Like to Know

5.  The Three Best Books to Read in the Bathroom

Meh, I’m not really that surprised about the bottom five.  I can absolutely understand why #1 was my introduction of Caleb because it’s no longer relevant and wasn’t particularly search engine friendly.  The only real surprise is that Seraphina, after all the hype it received, is at the bottom.  Perhaps the hype has finally died down.  As for the rest, well they’re either old books or awkward non-SEO friendly articles.  Oh well.

So that is how my December looked stats-wise.  What about yours?
