Month in Review

January 2022 Reading Round UP

 Total books read this month: 13

New to me authors:

Nancy Naigle

Ratings.  Which are totally arbitrary, depending on enjoyment.

Most books were four stars and Goodbye Again by Mariah Stewart and The Moon over Kilmore Quay by Carmel Harrington three stars. Top book was five stars!

Top Book for January

Nostalgic reread of older book by Nora Roberts. I listened to it and really enjoyed that. David Stuart narrated and he was very good. It is about found family and three older men taking in ten year old Seth. Plus a romance between Cam the oldest and Seth’s social worker – Anna. It retained the five stars I had given to it previously many years ago when I read the print version. A feel good story!

Looking towards reading in February

The only review book I intend reading. As I love Fiona Lowe as an author I am anticipating a good read.

I will want to read at least five books from my actual print shelf as well.

Main Reading Goals for February

I am doing a slow read of Pride and Prejudice. I reached Chapter 22 by the end of January. I aim for a chapter most days. It has the notes that go with it so that takes a bit of glancing at as well.

Keep an eye on my five main reading goals for 2022. I have started well on reading from my own shelf. It has been a bit of a challenge to stop myself from buying new books before I have read the three off my shelf first. However in January I read six off my shelf, which entitled me to two new books. As I am reading Go Tell the Bees that I am Gone with its almost 900 pages that may put a damper on buying for awhile! It could take most of February to read!

Thank you

To Nicole for a book that I won a couple of months ago from her monthly wrap up. It arrived in January.

  1. It was hard for me to read P&P in print. I had fallen in love with Keira Knightley’s movie first and then tried the book, second. Their conversations are like labyrinths to me. Audio works best for me. My blog is up, BTW: With Book and Wool Here and a Spatula and Thread There. Can you guess what inspired the title? ^__^ LOL

  2. Great reading month for you! And 6 from your own shelf – way to go!

    I decided to drop my monthly summaries, in an effort to simplify a bit this year – I know I spend way too much time on my blogs. Of course, I am still way behind from getting sick at the start of the year, but hopefully, that decision will help! 🙂

    Hope you have a great reading month in February, too.

  3. Looks like it was a good reading month with a nice mix of genres for you. I haven’t done a “re-read” in over twelve years of blogging. There are just too many books on my TBR shelves. 🙂

  4. What a great reading month! I want to reread Sea Swept. I did kind of a binge listen of some of Roberts’ suspense books and have really enjoyed them. It’s made me want to do a serious reread of her books. Happy February!
