January has been an awesome month. I’m starting 2024 off right. Not only did I start blogging again, I’ve filled my reading bucket quite full. I participated in Bout of Books at the beginning of the month. I finished one book during the event and three others during the rest of the month.

My favorite book this month is a toss up between REMARKABLY BRIGHT CREATURES by Shelby Van Pelt and BOOK LOVERS by Emily Henry. Two very different stories and genres, but I loved both. I didn’t really have a least favorite book this month.

January Plans

How did your December go? What are your plans for January?

Wow! I actually read this month. I finished three books. I’m still not back to my old reading self yet, but it’s progress. Hopefully, I can continue on this trend.

My favorite book this month was BUILDING A LIFE WORTH LIVING: A MEMOIR by Marsha M. Linehan, which I finished on Thursday night. I’ll be posting my review of it on Monday.

April Plans

How did your March go? What are your plans for April?

I didn’t finish any books in November and I only read two books in December. Because of health issues, I didn’t really read anything until the middle of the month. I did start listening to the ECLIPSE audiobook, but I’m only about halfway through it. I hope I’ll get a chance and want to read more in January. I’m participating in the Bout of Books readathon this week, which hopefully will help jumpstart my year.

My favorite book this month was IN A HOLIDAZE by Christina Lauren. Although, I did also really enjoy THE HUNDREDTH QUEEN by Emily R. King.

January Plans

How did your December go? What are your plans for January?

I only read two books in October via audiobook. I had a hard time actually picking up books to read even though I had a few lined up. November will probably not be a very productive month in regards to reading either because I’m participating in NaNoWriMo and my focus will be on writing.

Since I finished listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks in September, I decided to start the Twilight Saga audiobooks this month. I finished TWILIGHT in the middle of the month and NEW MOON on Halloween.

I learned in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) that life is full of dialectics, or two opposing truths. In this case, the two opposing truths are: 1) I don’t agree with JKR’s stance regarding trans people, and 2) I still love Harry Potter.
