I can't believe it's already January 31, I feel like the month passed by so fast. I only read 4 books! I need to read more, I've found so many good books that I want to read thanks to Waiting on Wednesday, Teaser Tuesdays, Feed My Reader Friday, It's Monday, what are you reading?
I started this blog on November but I feel like I just started blogging this month. It was a little bit more time consuming than I thought but I'm learning and I think it's just a matter of getting used to things. It's been fun this month, getting to know new and old bloggers, joining read-a-longs, book clubs, discussions, tours and weekly memes. I'm hoping I'll finally get organized this week so it wont be as stressful as it is sometimes.
I just realized today that I had to link my challenges post for the month and freaked out because I still needed 3 posts. I realized I was wrong and I just need 2.
I joined 6 reading challenges and one bookclub on Goodreads, I read books for each, well, almost, I'm still reading The Pelican Brief, after this I'll go hurry up and finish it so I can post the review. (My last book of January) Things worked out in the end (because I read the same book for the paranormal challenge and the read by theme book club) but hopefully I'll be on track for February.
Here they are in the ordered I joined and the books I read for each, respectively (the books will take you to the review post):
Read by Theme Book Club, Paranormal Character, Nicholas Sparks, Ireland, Mystery/Crime, Ebook and Where are you reading?
This month I only read 2 ebooks:
- Johnny Doesn't Drink Champagne
- The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Where are you reading? Map
This challenge is to try to read one book in each state but since I only read two inside the US, I'll add the other two as well (they're extra). Here's an image of the map, it's a link to the real one.
- Johnny Doesn't Drink Champagne - London
- Boy in the Striped Pajamas - Auschwitz, Poland
- Dear John - North Carolina
- The Pelican Brief - New Orleans, Louisiana
My goal for February is to read at least 6 books. How do you manage to read so many books in one week and still get other things done or are you a fast reader? Do you read more than one book at the same time? Is it faster this way?
