I can’t believe January is at an end! On the one hand, January has been forever long. On the other hand, I started this blog one month ago on January 1, and I feel like I haven’t had nearly enough time to figure everything out! I can’t believe it’s already time to post my first monthly wrap up on my blog!

2020 READING GOAL PROGRESS
At the beginning of the year, I shared my 2020 reading goals. When I post my wrap up at the end of each month, I also want to reflect on the progress I’m making toward reaching my goals.
Read 75 books: 11/75 (5 books ahead of schedule!)
Explore more genres: Nothing new, but I definitely read a mix of genres and continued to explore contemporary romance!
Buy fewer books: The only new book I got was my one BOTM pick!
Finish more series: I reread Renegades so I could finish the series, but I didn’t make any other progress and actually started some new series.
Reread more: I reread two books, Renegades and ACOTAR.
Read at least two classics: Not yet, but I’ve got all year!
Read one graphic novel each month: The Stonekeeper (Amulet #1)
Overall, I’d say I had a really great start to the year. I read a lot of books, and most of them were 4 or 5 star reads! I am also pleased with the progress I’ve made toward reaching my reading goals for the year. There’s still a lot of 2020 left ahead of us, but if January was any indication, it’s going to be a great year!
How did your month go? What was the best book you read in January?
