January Reading Wrap-Up

Writers read. Besides committing to a writing schedule, reading is one of the best things writers can do to improve their craft. To that end, I’ve decided that each month I will share the books I’ve read.

January was an excellent reading month! I finished 14 books! That’s a high number for me; usually, I only read 8-10 books per month. But, some months are better than others! Here’s a snapshot of what I read last month:

And here’s a little breakdown (most books fit into multiple categories):

7 library books

2 audiobooks

3 nonfiction books

1 short story

1 classic

7 from my TBR

Lastly, here’s what I rated each book. I won’t give a full review of each book (who has time for that?), just how many stars I gave them on Goodreads. Plus, a lot of the time, I don’t know what to say in a book review! That may be an odd thing for a writer to say, but there you go. 🙂

The Testaments, 5-stars

The Deal of a Lifetime, 4-stars

Keto For Women: A 3-Step Guide to Uncovering Boundless Energy and Your Happy Weight, 4-stars

A Man Called Ove, 4-stars

The Winter Girl, 2-stars

Gunslinger Girl, 4-stars

Three Women, 2-stars

I Wish You All the Best, 4-stars

A Clockwork Orange, 4-stars

The Dollhouse, 3-stars

Design For Dying, 4-stars

A Tree Grows In Brooklyn, 4-stars

Robopocalypse, 4-stars

Thanks, Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House Years, 4-stars

And that’s what I read in January! I can’t wait to see how much reading I can get in this month! Aren’t books the best? I think so…
