January 2020 Recap & February TBR



Happy Hump Day, everyone!

I hope you're all having a wonderful week. Earlier this year, I decided to stop doing weekly recaps as I wanted to make blogging more low-key for myself. I still wanted to do some sort of recap and I was inspired by Lauren at Bookmark Lit's Bookmark Lit Bulletins. I love reading her monthly bulletins (and her entire blog for that matter) and thought it would be a quick and easy way to share the books I've read over the past month. Another thing I'm trying out this year is planning a small TBR each month, so as to ensure that I'm reading a mix of genres/age groups. I'll also be sharing that TBR in these monthly recaps in the hopes that I'll stick to them. Anyways, let's get to the reading updates!

January was a VERY slow reading month for me, but I had a lot going on including having my family over for the first week of January, starting school after winter break, and general lack of enthusiasm to pick up a book. That being said, I did read some really good books.
