A Bookish January

month in books

This is the first of my stats-type posts for 2019, and I’m going to be doing them a little differently. Let me know what you think?

This month my TBR was chosen by the lovely Rosie of Rosie Freckle Reads. I absolutely loved the books Rosie chose for me to read, and have definitely found some new favourites (*cough* Fangirl *cough*).

  1. I’m really pleased with January in terms of reading! I’ve read 12 books so far (and am hoping to finish This Is Going to Hurt tonight), and I enjoyed almost all of them except Yerma (a play I read for school.). Well done for making such a good start on all of your challenges!
