A Year of Reading: A Visualization of Books Read in the Year 2022 by Irene Alisjahbana

In 2022, my love for books was rekindled. While reading remained a constant in my life, this year marked my entry into the vibrant Bookstagram community, enabling me to share my literary enthusiasm with a community of book lovers.

My visualization showcases each book I read during the year, spotlighting details such as title, author, genre, page count, my personal rating, and the month it was read. The data, diligently curated from Goodreads, was rendered into this artwork using a combination of Python, d3.js, and Adobe Illustrator.

Designed with simplicity and elegance in mind, the visualization's circular form mirrors the cyclical nature of the year, encapsulating my 2022 reading journey. Beyond just aesthetics, this piece stands as a testament to a year of literary exploration and accomplishment—a visual memoir I'll cherish and reflect upon.
