Month in Review: January

It's hard to believe January is over, but I must say "Good riddance!" It was not a good start to the year for many personal reasons, so my husband and I are starting the new year with this new month. Things are bound to get better!

I did manage to read some good books in January, so that's the one positive. Actually, I realized that all four books I read in January were for my pleasure only. I didn't read any review books or book club books last month. It was refreshing, but now I need to get working on all those review books!

  1. I don't know if it's the weather or things are just crazy, but I have been seeing a lot of people who said January did not go well for them. I hope February is much better for you and your family and that you have the chance to read lots of wonderful books!
