The first month of the year already gone. In some ways it’s flown by, in others, it’s felt like a year in itself. Reading wise, I’m off to a good start, because for the first time in at least a year and half, I have read 12 books for the month! That used to be my standard, for so long, but then everything went pear shaped in my life and I’ve struggled to get back that momentum. Here’s hoping 2022 will see me reading so much more again.
I am not doing any official reading challenges, but unofficially, I am doing a couple of things:
22 in 2022: I’m keeping this fairly flexible, but basically, I am going to try and read 22 books off of my shelves that are ‘own purchases’, not review books sent to me. These can either be print or e-book, the only rule I’m setting myself is that I bought it, as opposed to being sent it for free. I certainly have a lot to choose from!
Classics shelf: I am determined to read more from my classics shelf this year. I have a rough sketch in my head on what titles and when, just need to put it into action.
Finish that series: again, this is a very loose challenge I’ve set myself to finish the many series I’ve started and not completed. There are a few in particular I will be concentrating on and there will likely be some crossover with the 22 in 2022 challenge.
Over to this month:
Total Books Read for January – 12
Favourite book: The Maid by Nita Prose and The Paris Bookseller by Kerri Maher
Least favourite book: Nightmare Alley by William Lindsay Gresham
Until next month…good reading!
