January: What I Read

books, ebooks, reading, recommendations

I've decided to start a monthly series here on the blog. 

I used to keep a very long list of all the books I've ever read. I still have that archived somewhere. And I do still track my reading on Goodreads. 


I'm going to post at the end of each month and share the books I've read. 

Which (HOORAY!) I actually have done in January. 

I also used to make a goal of reading 100 books every year. I never hit that goal. 

So now I'm much more realistic and opt for setting a goal of 52. One book per week. If it's possible, it's possible, if not, I won't beat myself up over it. It's still okay. But it's nice to set a small challenge anyway.

And listen, my plan was to review each book. I really wanted to do that for you. And I will try to at some point, but if I don't submit and publish this post soon I'll be adding any books I read in February to the list. So. Bear with me and feel free to ask me my thoughts on the titles listed below.

The Once and Future Witches, by Alix E. Harrow

fiction, witchcraft, whimsical

Let me know what you've been reading so far this year! Can't wait to hear what you recommend. And be sure to tell me if you've read any of these titles and what you thought. 


  1. Under the Southern Sky, Ten Rules for Faking It, and the following romance books: A Cowboy's Proposal, Love at the Icicle Cafe, A Match Made at Christmas, and Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Sweater.


  2. I started Addie Larue - but put it aside, because some hand issues make it hard to hold a physical book.

    A Woman is No Man, by Etuf Rum
    Bellweather Rhapsody, Kate Raculia
    Someone Else's Love Story, Joshilyn Jackson
    Where the Line Bleeds - Jessmyn Ward

    And I'm currently reading Stay With Me by Ayobami Adebayo and Over the Woodward Wall by A. Deborah Baker; and, a couple of books on ADHD and diet.
