January Reading Update


Sorry for the delay in posting… I constantly have to do this but I’m not the greatest at time management when it comes to having a blog . Plus I tend to read in large spurts and forget to write and post about what I'm reading.


Anyways I have been reading a lot, as usual (kind of in the name of the blog and all). I challenged myself accidentally to read one book for every day in January of 2022. Yup that is right, 31 books in a month. Why you may ask? I honestly don't even know. It happened by accident and by the tenth day in a row I just didn't want to give up the streak.


I haven’t been writing many reviews but am planning to get started with some of my more recent reads to share my thoughts. Its been a lot of New Adult/Adult content lately and just trying to get caught up on some of my TBR (as if that’s ever possible). I swear my photo’s in my phone are solely books that I want to check out. I love physical books but I can’t believe how easy it is to consume literature when you have a device. Kindle Unlimited and Apple Books have really changed the game for me. I'm flying through novels at an alarming rate.

An update on how this month of reading has gone. I have listed all the books I read for my 31 days and wrote out all the books in my house I need to tackle before buying more, not that I ever actually follow that. Oops, cue the gif of Ariel looking embarrassed here.

That's it. Thirty one books in a month. Not all of them were amazing but for the most part I enjoyed myself. I will now be slowing down my reading to a book every few days, maybe up to a week per book so I don’t lose my mind because this was a lot of reading in one month and though it would be cool to read one book per day for a whole year, I think I would lose my mind if I was to actually follow through.
