Reading Goal Progress:

In 2017, I managed to read 70 books so I decided to aim for 75 books in 2018! I don’t have any other solid goals yet, I’ve thought about doing some book challenges, but I really just prefer to mood read! In January, I read 9 books, which puts me 3 books ahead of schedule and at 12% of my reading goal for the year. 🙂

Personal Highlights (aka a photo dump of things I did this month):
