Beyond Books

what i read: january 2018

I did a lot of reading this month. I have surprised myself with the number of books I read in January. I haven’t read like this in a long time. It’s nice to enjoy reading again. I have no idea if this amount of reading will continue through the year, but I’ve happily carved out a good chunk of my goal of 50 books read in 2018. 😉

I read a lot of suspence/mystery this month. I go through phases in what I like to read, and it’s been a while since I had a mystery/suspense phase. It’s been nice!

Total number of books read in January 2018: 14!
