January Wrap-Up

February 1, 2018 Uncategorized 10

It’s been a pretty great January for reading! I’m making good progress on all my challenges and I feel like I’ve been reviewing more thoughtfully. I haven’t had any five star reads yet though, so if you have any recommendations for something stellar I should pick up in February, let me know 🙂

Books Read

I read 12 books this month, which was my goal, although I’m not sure I ever wrote that in a goal post. Here’s what I’ve picked up:

Top Post

My top post this month was one of my Nonfiction Friday posts, but my Beginner’s Guide to Nonfiction was a close second and more exciting so it’s what I’m sharing here:

Challenge Progress

  • 365 Commenting Challenge – 31 new-to-me blogs commented on!
  • Reading Deeply Challenge – read 1 of 3 remaining books to read by Ellen Ullman
  • Beat the Backlist – 2 of 24 books I own read
  • Platypire’s Diversity challenge – 1 fiction book read for Biracial awareness month, no nonfiction
  • Nonfiction challenge, read 40% nonfiction – currently at 50%, 6 of 12 books so far


The only event I’m aware of in the next month is Winter Bloggiesta, happening this weekend. I’ll probably mainly be catching up on normal blog maintenance this weekend, rather than the more long-term things I usually try to do during Bloggiesta, but I will be joining in. Are there any other events you’re looking forward to in February?

    Congrats on doing so well in January! I just borrowed two nonfiction reads from the library so I’m excited about those although not sure if I’ll get them read in February as I’ve got a few other reading projects going on. Happy weekend!

      I know my eyes are always bigger than my stomach at the library! I’ve picked up some more nonfiction this weekend and I’m just hoping to get to them before I have to return them, which could be 6 weeks out if I’m able to renew them 🙂
