January 2020 wrap up and February goals

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.

February Goals:

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!
