January 2020 | Wrap-Up

Congratulations everyone, we survived January 2020! This month was filled with some fantastic and not so fantastic reads. It always seems like the beginning of the year is hit or miss when it comes to reading books. I had quite a few books I was looking forward to that ended up being nothing like I expected. I DNF’d a few books, and I ended up falling in love with some other ones. Ultimately, I’m calling January a successful month even if I DNF’d a few books. 

If you haven’t already seen, I created (with the help & encouragement of Leah) #FaeFriday! It’s a weekly blog tag for anyone who wants to join in! Feel free to jump in and frolic every Friday! If you do, make sure to use the hashtag & tag back to me so I can see all of your beautiful posts! 

As you all know, the Ravenclaw in me LOVES stats. I love being able to find out how my reading habits change and seeing exactly how they shift and change throughout the year. This year I’m using a spreadsheet that I created. I took elements I loved of my spreadsheet last year and added some more things to it this year. That means that I have a few more statistics and things that I can look at this year!  

As always, I appreciate you all. Thank you for reading my posts, leaving encouraging comments, and helping me be a better blogger. You are all amazing, and you keep me going. So without further ado, here are my stats!

  1. I love the idea of making stats! Definitely would have fun doing it too. Happy reading in February and I hope you’ll read books you won’t want to DNF 🙂

  2. This is truly amazing!

    Love the stats!
    I’ve just begun reading and have wanted to post such a wrap up, but well… Quite nervous seeing people reading so much more than I do!

    1. Don’t be scared! Wrap-ups are some of my favorite posts. It’s fun to see what everyone has read. Don’t judge yourself based on what everyone else is reading. 🙂
