Monthly Wrap Up

Monthly Wrap Up January 2022

Just when I thought December was my best reading month, I managed to read even more in January. Somehow I read a ridiculous number of books (40!), and still stayed on top of a bunch of other stuff that needed to be done. I’m hoping this is a good sign for how 2022 is going to go. My TBR is still out of control, as are my NetGalley ARCs, but I’m definitely not complaining because I have some truly incredible books lined up for February. In addition, making progress towards my 2022 goals is going well:

  • I finally reached 500 followers on my blog, so thank you to all the amazing people taking the time to read my blog.
  • I read 6 of the books that I own, so only about a zillion to go, but slow progress is still progress, right?
  • I’ve wanted to read a little more nonfiction each month, and hit that goal for January with 6 nonfiction books under my belt.
  • Finally, I have been working to incorporate more diverse books into my reading, and hit that goal as well.

Here’s my breakdown of monthly/cumulative totals for January:
