This month doesn’t have an impressive pile but these books were a wonderful way to start the year. I have been desperate to read more Nonfiction and consider the diminutive pile a success in that regard! Also, and this is truly shocking, I managed to review nearly all of them.
I have still not set any official reading goals or plans for the 2023 reading year. Instead, I sort of wanted to sink into my reading for the year. I am loving the idea of reading one classic a week, one feminist book, and one book on the way people think. By that standard, this month was also a success.
I also re-read a number of random romance books when my brain would not shut down long enough to let me sleep. These authors do not get the praise they deserve for bring these characters into my life to keep me distracted enough to quiet the thoughts that keep me awake.
This is the series I re-read this January. It is such a ludicrous premise but between the Rugby and the romance it was enough to short circuit the mental conversation I was having with myself in the wee hours in the morning.
I am loving working through my Year of Wonder. This book presents a one page synopsis on a classical piece of music. I do not always get a chance to listen everyday, but it is easy to stay on track and I have worked through all of the January pieces.
More than anything, this reading month has been eye-opening and enjoyable and I cannot wait to see what February has in store!
Tell me, please! How was your January reading?
