January Wrap Up | 2023

I can’t believe we’re already a full month into 2023? Like, how?! It seems almost impossible but while time was flying by, I certainly managed to read my fair share of books this month.  I finally feel settled into my new routine and while I don’t love commuting, I do love all of the extra reading time I get on weekdays.  Despite the high-for-me-in-recent-months volume of books read, there weren’t too many standouts for me.  Think lots of 3-3.5 star reads.  I’m hoping to have better luck in February, especially since I just downloaded some of my most anticipated books and I cannot wait to get to reading them.

    You read so much! I read Nightflyers a few years ago and I didn’t like it either. I hope you enjoy your February reads more!

    You’re making me rethink how I’ve been tracking books read and post recaps on my blog. I’ve been resisting for literal years but maybe it’s time for a monthly recap like yours with everything in one spot.
