2018 Monthly Status Update: January


And so ends the first month of the New Year! This month flew by for me between work, reading, and lots of fun activities with family and friends. I’m excited to say that it was a pretty productive month, I impressed myself with how much I got done considering I was at work until 11pm some nights. Anyways, here are some highlights from January for me:

Monthly Stats:
# books read this month: 11

I participated in the Bout of Books challenge this month which was great and really helped me get a jump start this year on my reading. I’m not going to list the individual posts because there were many but here is a link for all my posts for the challenge.

I decided to use this reading challenge to help me decide which books to read from my backlog whenever I get the chance to do so – Bookish 2018 Reading Challenge

Next Month TBR List:

Next month I only have a few titles scheduled

-Christmas Glitter by Ann B. Harrison
-By The Book by Julia Sonneborn
-You Will Be Mine by Natasha Preston
-Maybe This Time by Nicole McLaughlin

Other than these titles I will be trying to catch up on the January titles that I missed (had like 15 to read and I was still behind from December too – there was no way) and also hopefully fit in a couple more from the Backlog list (from 2017 and 2016)!

Hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day and a wonderful February!
