So how did I do in January:
Well, I did AWESOME!!!! Sickness, dealing with lice, a snow day, and loss of work days meant more days at home and time to escape reality. I read a TON this month. I don't expect to continue this amount all year, but this is a great start!
I picked up a couple of Susan Mallery books at the library and let me say that I am hooked. I read her Lone Star Sisters series over the course of a couple days (Under Her Skin, Lip Service, Straight from the Hip, and Hot on her Heels). Let me tell you, I could not put the series down! It was intriguing, funny, and there was a mystery throughout as to why? I would highly recommend her writing. I am currently working my way through her "Fool's Gold" series and I look forward to reading more of her books!
I have a goal to expand my reading habits and to try to include at least one non-fiction book each month, to expand my mind and to get me to think about what I read and not just get lost in a good story.
In January, I chose to read Knit Together: Discover God's Pattern for Your Life by Debbie Macomber. I will admit that it took me several readings to read the entire book. I would say I read it over the span of 2 weeks. Not that it was not good; rather, I purposely made myself read it slowly so that I could think about and reflect upon what she was writing about. I found it to be a great book that was a little bit of a memoir, a little bit of guidance on how we should live, and very inspirational without being overbearing.
Here are the books I read for fun in:
Books from 2015
