January Recap

Thirty-one days in 2016 down… only 335 to go!

So, it’s been quite a busy month. I swear sometimes it feels like I was just celebrating the New Year and slowly getting back into the groove of driving to work. And with starting a new routine too, I feel like I’ve been working on it forever (and still can’t quite get it down!).

I know some people made it a big deal which book would be their first for 2016, and I wish I could relate. I more or less picked up a book and started reading because I knew if I didn’t force myself to set aside time to read, I’d keep procrastinating and find excuses not to. I’m glad my “force myself to read more” plan worked!

Books Read

I read 7 books in January!

  1. An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin
  2. Nobody’s Cuter Than You by Melanie Shankle
  3. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Illustrated Edition) by J.K. Rowling and Jim Kay
  4. Self-Help by Miranda Sings
  5. Crushed (Pretty Little Liars #13) by Sara Shepard
  6. Deadly (Pretty Little Liars #14) by Sara Shepard
  7. Toxic (Pretty Little Liars #15) by Sara Shepard


2016 Resolutions Progress Check

Alright… let’s review my resolutions and see how well I’m sticking to them…

  1. Of the 7 books I’ve read so far, three are books that I own. I’d call that progress.
  2. I’m one book away from finishing the Pretty Little Liars series. FINALLY.
  3. I’m 1/7 of the way through rereading the Harry Potter series.
  4. Because I’ve read 7 books in January, I’m 28% through my Goodreads goal of reading at least 25 books. (And I’m listening to my first audiobook–Heaven help me!)
  5. I’d like to think I’ve been blogging more regularly than I had just two years ago.
  6. Why is decluttering always the hardest? It’s the ultimate game of Tetris.
  7. I’ve been hitting the gym at least three times a week! My legs hate me!


Whew! Hopefully I can keep up the pace for February. How’s everyone else’s resolutions, reading or otherwise, going?
