January 2022 Wrap Up

I know this seems silly to post on the same day as my WWW Wednesday but one of my biggest failings in 2021 was not keeping track of my reading. So, here is the first of hopefully twelve monthly wrap-ups.

I keep thinking about how burned out I was at the end of January back in 2021. This is a far better end of the month post! Oh wait, I didn’t do one in January 2021. The fact is that I do not need a re-do on any of my reading goals is because, I really didn’t set any yet. I wanted to test out a new process of thinking of larger goals and breaking them down into monthly chunks. I am not entirely sure how to do this so I ran a nice beta test in January. Let’s see how it went!


BOOKS I READ IN JANUARY 2022

Others

And this is how my reading plan has formed, a bit naturally and with a lot of contemplation. Now I am one the hunt for reading challenges that support these goals.

  1. One Book About WWII Female Heroes

  3. An Audiobook
  4. At Least on Library Book
  5. One NonFiction Book

  1. How did you like Three Ordinary Girls? That one was on my radar but I tend to not be so enthusiastic about WWII stories these days unless they’re really special, I think I’ve just read too many over the years.

    And I love Leslie Jordan, he just cracks me up!! I’m sure his book is a delight.

    1. I can certainly understand that feeling. I think I am more interested in the people and their stories of special skills which means I am trying to read about special people during a crisis. This book was, honestly, not fantastic. It did provide me some much needed information about the Netherlands and the connections to Anne Frank were interesting. But, it felt stayed very much on the surface. I am glad I read it but cannot really endorse it as a “much read.”

      Leslie’s book is the best four hours I have listened to an audiobook in YEARS. I just love him.
