I started the year off strong by reading 20 books in January 2022! Trust me, I’m just as shocked as you are.
In 2021, I read 188 books, which is more than I’ve ever read before. At the beginning of the year, I had monthly TBRs of around 10 books but noticed that I usually read closer to 15. Towards the end of the year, I was reading somewhere between 15 and 18 in a month, without even trying, and in December, I read 28. Truly, I couldn’t even believe that my mind could handle that much reading, but I loved it. I don’t force myself to read – I just never find a time where I don’t want to!
Needless to say, I’m pushing my monthly goals this year to 15 books and seeing what happens from there. If I read them all – excellent. If I read more – that’s great! If I don’t read every single book – totally fine. There are just so many books I want to read, which is why I find myself wanting to increase those goals. I realize this isn’t for everyone! But the beauty of reading isn’t how many or how fast or anything like that, it’s about the joy you get from diving into a book you love. I can’t wait to find more of those this year!
In this post, I’m sharing the books I picked up in January and what I thought about them!
