January 2018 Wrap Up! Over 30 Books!

Yes, you read that right! It was not a type (which to be fair I make a lot of typos), I read 32 books in in January. I know what you're thinking, how on Earth did you do that?! Well, let's not get into the details too much because it still makes me uncomfortable but I quit my job and that left 40+ more hours a week to read. I also read a lot of manga. So it's not like I read 32 long books.

Though when my family moves in either February or March, that will really slow my reading down, so it kind of evens out. Maybe. A little. In my mind in does...

I have noticed that the more I read the more my reviews suck... does this happen to anyone else? It's like when I'm reading that I just want to read and not be bothered to write a review. That's something I hope to work on.

Now that's out of the way, let's just jump into this shall we? It's going to be long, so grab some tea and a snack, you might need it.

So there you have it. All 32 books I read last month. I still can't believe that, I'm now a third of the way into my Goodreads goal for the year! The whole year! Anyway, have you read any of these novels? What did you think of them? Let me know below and have a great day! 


  1. Wow, way to go with 32 reads during the month of January!! Some of the books look really awesome and I'll have to add them to my ever growing reading wishlist.

    I also notice that the more books I read in a month, the more my reviews suck too. I tend to want to keep reading books verses writing book reviews. Then I feel kinda of overwhelmed when I do decide to write my reviews... Or maybe I forget a lot of the details of the book when it comes to writing my reviews after reading so many of them in one month.

  2. wow congrats on so many reads! a great start to the new year :)

  3. 32 books is amazing! On my largest reading months, I tend to push my reviews back and they aren't as precise as I want, so I get the feeling! At least you wrote reviews for most of what you read!!

  4. Wow, 32 books?! I guess jobs really do cut into our reading time. I hope you have a great February!
