Book tag – January wrap-up

Between starting the new year, receiving a promotion at work and reviving my book blog, January has been a much slower reading month than I had initially hoped. I didn’t manage to read as many books as I would have liked, at all. By that I mean, it’s been a pathetic reading month.

I’ll just have to make up for it in February. I’ll be doing the Series Crackdown readathon, so look out for my post about that!

What did I read in January?

I read a grand total of four books in January. And one audiobook.

How I manage to waste so much time doing absolutely nothing, I don’t know. It’s on my resume under ‘special talents’.

The books I did read were pretty damn good though. Mostly.

What did I write in January?

In January I wrote 7,054 words, making my manuscript now a total of 36,161.

As much as I like to complain, I’m actually reasonably happy with that number. It’s not quite the 1,000 words a day I had hoped for, but it’s on the right track. Especially considering that I’ve been working on this same manuscript for about 8 years now. Could 2018 be the year?

What am I currently reading?

I’m currently reading More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer. I requested this from NetGalley and have to say I love it so far!

I haven’t decided on my next audiobook yet – I’m open to suggestions!

Let’s chat

How was your January reading? Better than mine? Worse? Are you currently reading (or writing!) anything interesting? I want to know!

  1. Wow, congrats on the work promotion! 🙂
    I’m glad you enjoyed the books you read this month, even if you didn’t read as many as you had hoped. One of Us Is Lying is a book I’ve been meaning to read for a while, so you’ve reminded me to read that soon! 🙂
    I actually had a record reading month this month, but technically I cheated..I read some manga books that only took me about an hour to read each!
    Have a great February! 🙂

    1. Manga still counts! Haha. I don’t read manga but I read some graphic novels and I totally count them towards my book count! You should absolutely read One Of Us Is Lying, I’d be curious to hear your thoughts on it! Thanks for the lovely comment!
