January New Books & New Goals


Monthly Review

January has passed and it’s February already? No way I say, but yes Blair. It is indeedy February. While I am organizing my shelving and spending way more money than I should on all the lust worthy books both new and old I thought to make a post about the books I read and brought in January and the next eight books I plan on reading. [Providing I can finish two a week]

I had a lot of new year goals and one of them was to try read a book a day, while this was certainly a challenge, when I realised how many people wanted to see me [they never do] and how finding a course or a job would affect my attention span it seemed as I was heading for a nervous break -down I leaned more towards lazy days spent on the couch watching dvds [one goal taken shamelessly to epic proportions] and my reading became slower.

However I am happy to share with you the list of nine books I did read, because nine is better than none and nine is also better than one and two and well you get the picture.

Books I Read In January:

9. See Jane Write- A Girls Guide to Writing Chick Lit – 5 Stars
