This year I am focusing on self-compassion and slowing my pace with my reading so I can focus on my blog. Since 2015 I've been reading 300+ books every year. I think it was my way with coping with grad school. Now, I've got the time and I want to start reaching out to other blogs! I've missed the book blogger community so much it feels good to go through and see what they're up to.
Hubmachine and I have started budgeting and I made a promise about book buying this year. For every fifteen books I read, I can buy one. While a lot of it has to do with budgeting, it also has to do with space and me reading what I have before buying anything else. This month I’ve read 7 of my hard copy books, 3 of my e-books, and 15 of my ARC’s. Not a bad way to start the year.
Pound Cake!!!! Isn't it pretty?? I'm a little (very) proud!
Song of the Month:
This song has definitely been keeping me in a very positive and happy mood.
Favorite Book(s) of the Month:
As you can see I read an astronomical amount of good books this month. It's been a great way to kick off the year. All of these books were been beyond fantastic and worth picking up! My reviews should be linked to the pictures...not sure I did it right, but we shall see.

Goals for the Rest of the Year:
1. Continuing to stay on top of my book reviews. I've done super well this month so far so I'm hoping to keep up the progress this month.
3. Finish a couple series on my bookshelves
