I can’t believe that it’s already February! I meant to write this post a while ago, (Like nine days ago) but as you might already know, I’m not very good at planning posts in advanced! Anyways, here’s how my month went:

I finally read Six of Crows.
You can read my review here.
I completely reorganized my bookshelf and put fun lights on it.
I for the first time actually organize my bookshelf by genre, and I’m really proud of myself for doing that, because before I
I did a lot of stuff.
So even though my entire month was completely planned out very well, and I didn’t accomplish all of my goals, I’m happy with what I got done.
I’m not going to completely plan out and set a lot of goals for February, and I’m not going to write out a TBR (to be read), but I do want to finish reading all of the books that were on my winter TBR.
So… the books that I have yet to read are these:
- Black Radishes, by Susan Lynn Meyer
- Orange for the Sunsets, by Tina Athaide
- Turtle in Paradise, by Jennifer L. Holm
- The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelo
- Before We Were Free, by Julia Alvarez
That’s only five books, and I’ll most likely read more, but the other books I read will be for OBOB. (a reading competition I’m doing that’s through my school)
For my posting goals, I want to write:
- 1 Other post
- 1 Tag
- 2 Reviews
- 3 Top Ten Tuesday
- 3 WWW Wednesday
- 3 Let’s Talk Bookish
That adds up to thirteen posts, and plus this one is fourteen, and thats a good amount for me.
I also want to get some writing done, and work a little more on the story I’ve been working on.
And that’s it for my January wrap up and goals for February! I hope you are all having a great 2020 so far!
