January Wrap-Up

I can’t decide if January went quickly or seemed to last forever! I went back to work at the start of January after a wonderful Christmas break. Don’t think I’ve ever felt quite so drained trying to manage home learning, live lessons and children in class. Diving into some fantastic books this month has definitely helped!

Books I’ve read:

I’ve read 11 books this month, 9 physical copies and audiobooks. I’m trying to read at least one adult book each month, and this month it was The Whistling which has definitely encouraged me to pick up more adult books. I’ve also had a couple of re-reads which is quite unusual for me: one as I was using it in class (The Dreamsnatcher) and the other as I wanted to re-read for a Blog Tour (The Beast and the Bethany: Revenge of the Beast).


My Feedback Ratio is at 95%. I have only requested one book from NetGalley in January: While the Storm Rages. I haven’t been approved yet, but I’m crossing my fingers that I will be! Only have to wait until June if I’m not! I’m aiming to get my 100 Reviews Badge this year, and am currently on 75 Reviews, so I might achieve it!

Books sent by publishers:

I have been lucky enough to have been sent these books by publishers this month. Rivals on the Track and Grandpa Frank’s Great Big Bucket List are gorgeous finished copies: I had been sent proof copies in previous months.

Books bought:

I’ve bought 11 books this month and have managed to read one of them so far!

How has your reading month been? Have you read any of these? Have you any of them on your TBR?

  1. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again but I really do marvel at the balancing act reading teachers perform between everything! Especially in the last couple of years!
    Looks like a great reading month. Fingers crossed you get approved for While the Storm Rages!
