Reading Recap: January 2017


January is over! How did you do with your goals? I love the chance to start the year really well. Here are the goals I set for this year:

  • Total: 150
  • Pages: 60,000
  • 40 non-fiction
  • 10 classics
  • 10 translations
  • 22 books from my TBR list (my current list is at 52, and that’s a pretty limited list)
  • 50 book reviews

(see this post for more details)

Here’s how January went:

  • Total: 13
  • Pages: 4952
  • 3 non-fiction

I feel good about that start to the year! I focused a lot on using the ebooks available from my library and also requesting books on NetGalley, both of which have given me a wider variety of options.

Highlights!

I really enjoyed trying new authors this month.

Upstairs at the White House: My Life with the First Ladies — J.B. West

Working Stiff: Two Years, 262 Bodies, and the Making of a Medical Examiner — Judy Melinek & TJ Mitchell

When Nobody Was Watching — Carli Lloyd

Sarah Maclean (read several of her books)

What about you?

Did you set reading goals? What did you read this month? I’d love to hear!
