Aaaaaand just like that, January is over! Before we know it, 2019 will be upon us. And then 2020 and 2021….
Alright I’ll stop.
Anyway. This was a pretty decent month for me, if I do say so myself. You’ll see all the stats in the next part but I did manage to read 15 books. Considering that January was a bit of stressful month, I’m surprised I managed to do that much.
Look for my next post about my february tbr and what I plan to do coming up in the next months.
Alright, I have yammered on long enough. Here are the 15 books I read this month along with stats and I’m going to be trying something a little different in the ratings and reviews section. Let me know if you guys like it!
