January wrap-up

My January TBR consisted of 8 books (as my monthly TBRs will probably be every month this year). Specifically 8 novels. Plus my goal about one graphic novel every week, and a manga every other week. Which in normal months will be 4 graphic novels and 2 mangas. This January i participated in so many readathons, and was totally antisocial and nursing my introvertness, so I read quite a bit more than planned.

I ended up reading:
  • 13 novels
  • 4 graphic novels
  • 2 mangas
  • 1 comic strips collection
  • 1 audio book.

I'm so proud of this! So many books, so many pages, so many words! And I've enjoyed most of them.

And I even kept to my TBR, allowing myself to read other books when done with those. I missed out on two of my TBR simply because of slow mail to Norway... January OwlCrate has still not arrived.

Best book: The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
Worst book: Zenith by Sasha Alsberg & Lindsay Cummings (DNF)

Only 5 of these books were of male authors (one was co-written with a female author) and a surprisingly 16 were female authors.

I've visited USA, UK, Norway, Chile and Japan this month. I'm looking forward to visiting Finland (and hopefully more countries) in February.

I have calculated the pages for week 1-4 (leaving a few days of January, but I think it better this way), so in January I read a total of 4835 pages. Woop! That is incredible! I'm so happy!

What was the best book you read in January? And the worst? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Wow! You sure did read a lot of books! I would love to read that much but school is ruining my reading social life. Ugh!

    I am so sad to hear that you did not enjoy Zenith. I really enjoyed it; however, my favorite book of January was Turtles All the Way Down. I loved it so mucho! Also, good luck on all your challenges!
