Every now and then I get on a serious reading/blogging kick and I’m just blowing through books and have reviews scheduled for weeks out. That is where I’m at right now and it’s a nice feeling. I read nine books in January which is the most I’ve read in a month since my daughter was born in 2013 and many were really good. I’ve been working on the Read Harder challenge, too… I’ve already completed 6 of the 24 tasks (most of these are checking off the ones I do without really trying). All that to say, I’m feeling good about where I am blogging/reading wise right now and hoping to ride this wave of enthusiasm for a while longer.

In the Works: I’m currently reading The Smart One by Jennifer Close, whose debut I read last year and enjoyed. I’m still deciding which audiobook to start next, as I just finished the one I was reading this morning. I know my next ebook will be The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth because I have it checked out from the library already. I’m on the library hold list for a bunch of other books right now, too, and I’m sure they will all come in at once. In any case, I’ve got lots I want to read and will surely keep busy on that front.
One goal I have for the next month is to try to post some non-review content. I’m trying to get back onto the Top Ten Tuesday bus, since that is a fun way to participate with the community and having a prompt helps me immensely. Also, I have been reading faster than I can write reviews, so I’d like to take the time to catch up on my review backlog.
How was your January? Read anything good?
