After many months of what are bad reading months for me, I definitely feel like I’m back in a good mind space and have had a much better reading month. January ended up being a very good reading month for me. It’s the most I’ve read in quite a long time and I enjoyed so many of the books that I read.

Of the 46 books I read in January, 37 of them were part of a series (80.4%), 7 were standalones (15.2%), and 2 were a reread (4.3%).

When it comes down to intended audience for the books I read, 6 of them were young adult books (13%) and 40 of them were adult books (87%).

My ratings for January were mostly four stars! I had 1 two star book, 8 three star books, 28 four star books, and 9 five star books. Of my five star reads, my absolute favorites of the month were You Have a Match by Emma Lord and A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair. I definitely also enjoyed From Blood and Ash and A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout. That’s no surprise though since both of those are rereads for me!

Part of my goals for this year is to read more of what I own. While I didn’t read a ton of what I already own, I did read a few (5, but 2 of those were rereads). This is definitely something I need to work on more during the rest of the year.

  • Owned Physical: 5 (11.1%)
  • Owned Digital: 1 (2.2%)
  • Netgalley: 1 (2.2%)
  • Edelweiss: 2 (4.4%)
  • Library Physical: 2 (4.4%)
  • Borrowed: 2 (4.4%)
  • Kindle Unlimited: 32 (71.1%)

Lastly, I like to look at genres. With reading so much on Kindle Unlimited, I know a lot of what I read this month was contemporary romance books. This is a genre I like to read a lot, so this isn’t a surprise to me.

  • Contemporary: 36 (78.3%)
  • Fantasy: 5 (10.9%)
  • SciFi – 2 (4.3%)
  • Historical: 2 (4.3%)
  • Paranormal: 1 (2.2%)
