That's a Wrap | January in Review

My year started out like a body snatcher movie. I look the same. I sound the same. My reading and blogging, however, have not been the same. This may be my best reading month ever.

I think my Goodreads challenge is safe this year.

2017 Goals Update

Goodreads Challenge - I'm at 12/50 (24%) done with my challenge. Woohoo! Count: 12/50

Horror - My goal is to read 4 horror books a month (or roughly 48 horror books this year). I managed to read 6 this month. Count: 6/48

Nonfiction - I really suck at this. I shouldn't have let this one slide. February is women in horror month so it's going to be tough to get on track with this one. I'm on the waitlist for a few at the library. Maybe one will kick start me in the right direction. Count: 0

Pre-2017 TBR - Rosemary's Baby was from my (non-review-copy) TBR. I tried some other books before landing on Rosemary's Baby. They didn't grab me. Count: 1

Review Catchup - The Fireman, The Secret Life of Souls, and Gertie's Leap to Greatness were all catch up reviews. Count: 3

  1. Oh heck yeah, great job, you'll be blowing through your Goodreads challenge in no time at this rate!

    1. Thanks!! I won't be able to keep it up, but it was a fun month for sure.

  2. Wow you had an awesome month. Maybe I can use you for inspiration this February because my January was not so good.

    1. I'm on a bit of a burn out now so maybe it's your turn! :)

  3. Wow! Look at you! That's awesome. I had a good start to the year but nowhere near this great!

    1. Thanks! I don't know where it came from, but I just went with it as long as I could :)

  4. Wow, that is awesome! I'm already 2 behind :(

    1. You'll catch up! And I'm sure I won't stay this far ahead for long. It was an unusual month.

  5. Wow, you are way ahead (I'm already behind)

    1. Maybe it will help me when summer rolls around. I pretty much drop everything when summer hits.

  6. Excellent job! It always gives me such a sense of accomplishment to knock out review books. You'll definitely hit 50 for sure. :)
