January 2019 Wrap Up

It’s the end of January, and I’m pleased to say that I’m keeping up with my reading resolutions (which I’m going to try to keep linking back to here just so I remember them myself).

I read 18 books in January. Here’s the rundown.

Adult Reads

Overall, I’m pretty happy with my reading this month. I’m proud of myself for really stepping out of my comfort zone and reading an adult romance novel. It wasn’t anything like what I expected.

What did you read this month?


  1. I loved Mirage’s world-building so much. I feel like we are seeing more fantasy novels based on non-white cultures, but we rarely see the same in scifi. It was so refreshing to see this kind of diverse space read. Can’t wait for the next one. Hope you have a wonderful February!
